Follow these steps to setup the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin with Post Affiliate Pro using the Affiliates Tracking extension.

Install the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin

Assuming that you have a WordPress website ready and that you don’t have the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin installed and configured. You’ll purchase the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin and follow the installation instructions to install and activate it.

Install the Affiliates Tracking extension

In addition to the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin mentioned in Step 1, you’ll need to install and activate the Affiliates Tracking extension plugin which gives you the ability to configure clicks and sales tracking codes accordingly. You’ll purchase the Affiliates Tracking extension.

Get Post Affiliate Pro Tracking Codes

If you don’t have Post Affiliate Pro yet, you can register to try the demo or purchase a license for the most thorough, robust and affordable 3rd party affiliate network software.

Once you have a Post Affiliate Pro account, you’ll login to your merchant panel of Post Affiliate Pro with the link that they provide to your merchant panel.

Go to Post Affiliate Pro Integration

After logging into your merchant panel, go to Start > Tools and click on the “Integration” link which will take you to the integration section.

Get Post Affiliate Pro Clicks Tracking Code

First you’ll get the clicks tracking code so click on the “Clicks Tracking” icon which will provide you with all the clicks tracking details. You’ll copy the clicks tracking Javascript code to your clipboard.

Put Clicks Tracking Code into the Shopping Cart plugin

With the clicks tracking code in your computer’s clipboard, you can go to your WordPress dashboard and go to Checkout > Configuration > Affiliates Tracking and select “Javascript” for the “Type of Code” (since Post Affiliate Pro gives Javascript code in this case) setting and then paste the code into the “Clicks Tracking Code” box WITHOUT the SCRIPT tags, just the code inside the SCRIPT tags.

You can now save the settings by clicking the blue “Save Settings” button on the right-hand side under Checkout > Configuration > Affiliates Tracking.

Get Post Affiliate Pro Sales Tracking Code

Next, we’ll do the sales tracking code so go back to your Post Affiliate Pro merchant panel and under “Integration” again, you’ll click the “Sales/Leads Tracking” icon this time to get sales tracking code.

You’ll leave it on the “General Solution” setting which gives you a general solution to tracking. Then scroll down to the 2nd method “Hidden Image Integration Code” which is the easiest and most reliable.

Then copy the “Hidden Image Integration Code” to your computer’s clipboard.

Put Sales Tracking Code into the Shopping Cart plugin

With this code in your clipboard, go back to your WordPress dashboard and go to Checkout > Configuration > Affiliates Tracking. Under “Sales Tracking“, you’ll select “HTML Code” since this is HTML. You’ll then paste the hidden image integration code into the “Sales Tracking Code” box but you need to replace the TotalCost value (after the equal sign) with {affiliates_ordertotal} and the OrderID value (after the equal sign) with {affiliates_orderid}.

And that’s it, you’re all done. The clicks/referrals will be automatically recorded and when sales are made through the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin, they will be automatically recorded as well and the referring affiliate will earn commission on sales as configured in your Post Affiliate Pro merchant panel.
