Give affiliates a premium experience with the new Affiliate Portal

🎉 We have released the Affiliate Portal pro add-on!

The Affiliate Portal

The Affiliate Portal is an alternative to AffiliateWP’s standard Affiliate Area. Instead of being an area within the page on your site, the portal is a dedicated full-screen experience for your affiliates.

🚌 Let us show you around!


The Dashboard is an entirely new page for affiliates. Once logged in, they’re shown key performance metrics and can quickly access other pages of the portal to see the bigger picture.

The dashboard is where affiliates can see important metrics

Affiliate URLs

Previously, affiliates needed to highlight referral links and manually copy them to the clipboard. Now they can copy any referral link with one satisfying click.

Generating and previewing referral links is also more intuitive. Changing any input field updates the Generated referral URL automatically. In other words, no more clicking a clunky button for every new preview!

And finally, the sharing options are always visible, allowing for quicker sharing. As a result, you no longer need the Affiliate Dashboard Sharing add-on.

Referrals, Visits & Payouts

The Referrals, Visits and Payouts pages now have sortable table columns. We’ve also added color-coded labels and icons, making statuses clearer.

The portal makes good use of the generous screen real estate. Thanks to the all-new grid design, more creatives can fit on-screen.

Clicking a creative will show its true preview, along with its description and HTML code.

Finally, we’d like to show you the Settings page. It provides beautiful form styling and naturally integrates with the Payouts Service.

Optimized for your affiliates

Built for speed

Because the portal is independent of your WordPress theme, unnecessary CSS and JavaScript files are blocked from being loaded. This keeps the portal loading fast for your affiliates.

For on-the-go affiliates

Affiliates can access the portal wherever they are. The responsive design ensures it can be comfortably viewed on phones, tablets and desktop computers.

The portal is optimized for mobile devices.
