    Can we use our own affiliate link to purchase on behalf of a client?

    • Charles Watson
      November 30, 2017 at 6:01 pm #

      Exactly the question I have. I sell way more directly to clients who need/ask for it than I think I ever would via posting a link on my blog. Interested in the answer they give here.

      • Matt Lovell
        November 30, 2017 at 6:15 pm #

        Me too – I sell a lot to my clients, but generally have to do the work for them, buying etc
        But with things like theme forest the referrals are pointless, my referral id gets lost if my client ever browsed on their site before, and it all looks grubby if i have to hold their hands, clear their cookies explain to them how to open accounts etc.
        The best system for me is one where I get a discount on volume but can allocate licences to my clients

    Is there a discount for person I refer? What’s there incentive to click on my referer link than buy direct?

    • Travis Jacobson
      December 5, 2017 at 5:43 pm #

      Geno, we will let you know anytime we have discounts available. As far as your question about the incentive, our users are looking for reviews on products before they buy. Our best affiliates write reviews about our products and then as customers look for reviews they will find your review and click on your link to buy.

    Same question from me. As a dev I am buying the products on behalf of clients all the time. It would be a big incentive to offset some of the significant renewal fees I pay WooCommerce by earning commission.

    Not keen on the terms of the agreement, especially that there is no payment if you sell less than $100 per month and the escheatment clause affecting inactive accounts in not something recognised in the UK.

    If you introduce an agreement that is suitable for signing under English Laws, I might be tempted.

    • andrew turner
      December 1, 2017 at 1:12 pm #

      Does this mean if you only earn $80 per month you get nothing? does this not roll over to the next month?

      • Travis Jacobson
        December 5, 2017 at 5:46 pm #

        It rolls over until you hit $100. We will never take your commission away from you, every time you hit $100 we will pay out your commission.

    • Travis Jacobson
      December 5, 2017 at 5:48 pm #

      Bob, I would love to discuss this further as there may be a misunderstanding. The $100 commission is the threshold to trigger your payment. You don’t have to earn it all in a month, it will roll over to the next month for as long as you need. Once your commission amount hits $100, whenever that might be, we will schedule your payment. We won’t take your commission away from you.

    Why don’t you check the accounts? There you can see that people are buying more than one of a plugin.

      Marco, I wanted to follow up on this so I can understand your question better. We will pay out on the cart purchase price, so if they add more than one product we will pay the commission for everything they purchase.
