The EE4 AffiliateWP add-on allows your affiliates to promote your events from their websites. When someone visits your website by clicking one of your affiliates’ links, the affiliate receives credit for the visit, and if that visitor purchases tickets to your event, then the AffiliateWP plugin marks that visit as a conversion.
This add-on’s basic features include:
- Seamless integration with the AffiliateWP plugin
- Ability to track affiliate referrals for event ticket sales
- Functionality to pay affiliates for their ticket sale referrals through the AffiliateWP plugin
The AffiliateWP add-on is included in the EE4 Everything Support License.
This add-on is a plugin for WordPress and can be installed through your WP dashboard (WP-admin).
You download the latest version of the AffiliateWP add-on from your Event Espresso account.
Then log in to your WordPress dashboard (WP-admin) and go to Plugins. Next, click on Add New –> Upload and browse to the plugin on your computer. Then select the zip file and begin the upload process. Wait for the plugin to upload and then click on Activate.
Setup and Configuration
That’s it! There are no settings for the AffiliateWP add-on. See the AffiliateWP plugin’s documentation here.
Ticket sales are tracked when someone registers and pays for an event. Payment must be completed, either in a single payment, or multiple payments that add up to the total amount of the ticket(s) sale.
Currently, refunds that are processed in Event Espresso are not tracked in AffiliateWP. You will need to edit or delete the referral in the AffiliateWP dashboard.
- The plugin will not activate. Can you help?
Please first check that you have Event Espresso version 4.8 or greater installed.
