Install the “Affiliate Light” add-on on the add-ons list page (“Addons” → “Manage add-ons”). Click the + button in the top right corner, select an archive and click Upload & install. You can now find the installed add-on in the list of installed add-ons, just make sure it is set to Active.
The commissions are calculated from the product price only, tax and shipping rates are not calculated.
On this page, you can see current payouts to affiliates. Payouts can have the Open (awaiting payout), Paid (successfully paid payout) or Rejected status.
The add-on does not make any money transfers from the administrator’s account to the affiliate’s one. All the payouts registered in the store are required as notes only. And the add-on does not allow to perform money transactions between the administrator and the affiliate.
For all users, a promotional code starts with the prefix promo_ and ends with a user ID (for example, promo_3). The prefix can be changed in the add-on’s config.php file
