Getting Started

Basic Setup

Though the app comes with good defaults and can be used as is, we highly recommend you go through the basic setup. There are 3 steps to it

  1. Decide and setup how much commission you want to give your affiliates

  2. Let your site visitors know you have an affiliate program

  3. Promote your affiliate program over your brand's facebook page or instagram feed

Setting up commissions on your products

By default the app sets up 10% commission on all your products. This means that when your affiliates send you customers, they get 10% of the order value. To change this

  1. Select Commissions option in the sidebar

  2. Click on Change option at the bottom of the commission value

  3. Input your new commission and click on Save button

Letting your site visitors know you have affiliate program

You can take many approaches to let your visitors be aware of your affiliate program. Below we will describe two methods.

  • Menu Link in Header or Footer Menu

  • Custom Page with your program details

Having a link in your shop's header (top) or footer (bottom) menu allows for quick access of the affiliate program to your site's visitors/customers. To create menu link in Shopify

  1. Copy the affiliate portal link (eg. https://helloworld.goaffpro.com)

  2. In the Shopify Admin Panel, Click on Online Store

  3. Then click on Navigation -> Main Menu

  4. Then click on Add new menu item

  5. Then enter your desired Name (eg. Affiliate Portal or Become A Partner etc.)

  6. In the Link field paste the portal link copied in step #1

  7. Click on Add
