  • Select the recently downloaded Solid Affiliate .zip file.
  • Once uploaded, click install now.

Activate the plugin

  • Once installation completes, click activate plugin.

Complete the Setup Wizard

Solid Affiliate comes with a Setup Wizard to help with setup. Here’s a video that goes over the wizard, as well as some written notes below.

  • Step 1: Install WooCommerce.
  • Step 2: Install WooCommerce Subscriptions (optional).
  • Step 3: Choose your outgoing email address and name.
  • Step 4: Enter your license key.
  • Step 5: One-click Affiliate Portal setup.
    • The one-click Affiliate Portal setup will create a new page on your site and automatically embed the Affiliate Portal into this new page. You can optionally skip this step and then manually add the Affiliate Portal to any page by using the [solid_affiliate_portal] shortcode.

Next Steps

Completing the Setup Wizard – outlined above – gets your affiliate program up and running. At this point, there are no more required steps. However, we recommend configuring a few more things to make your affiliate program run the way you need it to. You can continue by heading over to the configuration documentation.
