Quick Setup

The app comes with default settings and can be used as-is, we highly recommend you go through the basic setup. There are 3 steps to it,
  1. 1.
    Decide and set up how much 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 Facebook page or Instagram feed.

Setting up commissions on your products

By default, the app sets up a 10% commission on all your products. This means that when your customer makes a purchase using an affiliate's referral, they get 10% of the order value. To change the commission rate,
In the GoAffPro admin panel, select the Commissions option in the sidebar.
Commissions Tab
In the Default Commission, click on the Change option at the bottom of the commission value.

Letting your site visitors know you have an affiliate program

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