Issue1 ) I just installed the WP Affiliates Manager plugin in WooCommerce.
I created a test affiliate account, and when I enter the website using the link that contains the wpam_id, it is working find and it is shown in the url when I transfer from page to page within the shop section, however, when I click on any other page on the website the wpam_id=# disappears from the url! not only that, even when I select a product to purchase it from the shop it will also disappear! Is there something I should do?
Solution One: Hi, That’s just a URL parameters that allows the plugin to check whether the user was referred by an affiliate. When the user goes to a different page it’s supposed to disappear from the page URL. As long as the initial click got tracked in the plugin, the affiliate will receive commission for the purchase. https://wpaffiliatemanager.com/cookie-duration-use/ (Solution provided by @affmngr in the forum)
