Release 6.0 - Affiliates

The most requested feature by our users has finally gone live! Our team has done a wonderful job at offering our users this incredible tool to multiply their sales.

You can now create your own Affiliate Programs and get a "ready-made" landing page to promote to your Affiliate Partners, allowing them to join and sell your products in exchange for commissions.

Oh, and did I mention the Affiliate Marketplace? Read more below.

Affiliate Programs

  • You can add multiple Affiliate Programs;
  • When adding a Program, you can add the description of the program, which can be styled using the HTML editor, the commission value or percentage, which products are available for affiliate sales and more.
  • Make your Partner's job easier by adding marketing copy and uploading banners for them to download and use in their campaigns;
  • Offer refunds by adding a Payouts Delay;
  • Offer one-time, recurring and lifetime commissions for Subscriptions;
  • Choose any combination of our existing Payment Gateways to execute Payouts via payment links;
  • Create private Programs, which have no hosted landing page;
  • You can manually approve partners that want to join your program, or you can set it to "auto-approve". If a partner breaks your terms, you can always kick them off your program.
  • Public programs get a hosted and customizable Affiliate Program Landing Page;

Affiliate Partners

  • Portal: your partners get their own account and can use the Affiliate Portal to get their unique Checkout Links, keep track of Sales, Commissions and Payouts, as well as to join new Programs.
  • Bonuses: allow your partners to add a "Bonus" section in the Thank You page and purchase email, to increase your sales by enticing their audience with more added value. This feature can be turned on or off.

Affiliate Marketplace

This is a great way to boost your sales, even if you do not know any Affiliate Marketer. All plug&paid Users and Affiliate Partners can now see our Affiliate Marketplace in the Affiliates section of their admin panel and browse through the public Programs.

As the Marketplace grows, the number of Affiliate Partners that will join your program will grow, and so will your sales.


We also added some love for users that subscribed to our Superbolts reseller plan. They can:

  • activate their own whitelabel "Affiliate Marketplace", which is a paid addon and will show in the admin panels of their clients;
  • disable the Affiliates module from their Settings.
