Create a new Customer-Affiliate Connection

GoAffPro provides you with the option to connect affiliates with customers using the Customer-Affiliate connection. When you create a new customer-affiliate connection, every time a customer makes a purchase on your store, the affiliate that is connected to the customer will receive the commission.

This connection is made using the customer's email address. When a purchase is made on your store by a customer, the customer is required to provide an email address. The Customer-Affiliate connect feature seamlessly finds out if any affiliate is connected to the customer's email address and credits the connected affiliate with the commission of the sale.
