GoAffPro provides you with the option to prevent customer-affiliate connections from getting created for existing store customers.
Go to the All Affiliates section in the Affiliates tab of the GoAffPro admin panel.
Here, click on Create New Affiliate.
Now, enter the affiliate's name and email address.
After this, click on Create.
Click on Approve to approve the affiliate account.
Go to the Commissions section.
Here, click on Change.
Now, set the commission rate to zero.
After this, click on OK.
The commission rate of the dummy affiliate account will be set to zero.
Now, go to the General Section in the Settings tab.
Here, uncheck the "Record Nil Sales" option.
Since the dummy affiliate's commission rate is set to zero, unchecking the "Record Nil Sales" option will prevent any sales with zero commissions from getting recorded.
Go to the Connections tab.
Here, click on bulk import.
Now, click on Browse to upload the bulk import file.
Setup the bulk import file by adding the name and email address of existing store customers with the email address of the dummy affiliate account.
After uploading the bulk import file, click on Bulk Import.
Finally, the customer-affiliate connections with all the existing store customers and the dummy affiliate will get created.
