Quick Setup

Quick Setup

The program comes with default settings and can be used as is, however, we strongly advise you to go through the basic setup. There are 3 steps to it:
  1. 1.
    Set up the commission you want to give your affiliates.
  2. 2.
    Let your site visitors know you have an affiliate program.
  3. 3.
    Promote your affiliate program over your brand's social media handles.

Setting up commissions on your products

By default, the app sets a 10% commission on all your products. It means that when your customer makes a purchase using an affiliate's referral, the affiliate earns a 10% commission on the order.

To change the commission rate:

In the GoAffPro admin panel, select the Commissions option in the sidebar.
Commissions tab
In the Default Commission section, click on the Change.
Default Commission
Set the new commission rate and click on Save.
Click on Save

Letting your site visitors know you have an affiliate program

You can take multiple approaches to lett 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 to the affiliate program for your store visitors. To create a menu link in Shopify:
Copy the affiliate portal link (for example https://helloworld.goaffpro.com)
In the Shopify Admin Panel, Click on Online Store.

Promote your affiliate program on social media platforms
