AffiliateWP – Store Credit


This plugin requires AffiliateWP v2.6+ in order to function.

This plugin allows you to pay your affiliates in store credit. At this time it supports the WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads integrations in AffiliateWP.

WooCommerce requirements

To use this plugin with WooCommerce, you need AffiliateWP and the main WooCommerce plugin.

Easy Digital Downloads requirements

To use this plugin with Easy Digital Downloads, you need AffiliateWP, Easy Digital Downloads, and the EDD Wallet extension.


  • Install and activate.

  • When marking an AffiliateWP referral paid, it adds the total to the user’s credit balance. If for some reason you go back and mark it unpaid, this plugin will also remove the referral amount from the balance.

  • On the WooCommerce checkout page, if the user has credit available, it will show a notice and ask them if they want to use it. Based on the credit available and order total, it will create a 1 time use coupon code for the lower amount and automatically apply it to the order. i.e. for a $100 order and $50 credit, it would generate a $50 coupon since the order is more. If the order is $25 and they have $50 in credit, it will generate a coupon for the $25 order total, and leave them with a $25 credit balance after checkout.

  • Upon successful checkout, the one time use coupon code is grabbed and the coupon total is deducted from their available balance.


  • Does this support Easy Digital Downloads?

A: Yes it does!

  • Does this support EDD Recurring Payments?

A: Yes it does! Affiliates that refer subscription purchases by customers can receive store credit each time a renewal order is processed if Recurring Referrals is installed on the site.

  • Does this support WooCommerce?

A: Yes it does!

  • Does this support WooCommerce Subscriptions?

A: Yes it does! Affiliates that have earned store credit and have active subscriptions can have their credit applied to their renewals. Affiliates that refer subscription purchases by customers can receive store credit each time a renewal order is processed if Recurring Referrals is installed on the site.

  • Does this support any other e-Commerce plugins?

A: Not at this time.

  • Can it be set so only certain affiliates are paid in store credit?

A: Yes!

  • Can affiliates select if they wish to be paid in store credit?

A: Yes! There is an option that lets site admins enable that profile setting for affiliates.

Hi! Just adding respectfully a review that hopefully boosts this above 3 stars, because 3 stars was disheartening and the review that brought the rating down so low is 3 years old and never had any response in the forum back, so it’s really not valid to consider that review by itself, nor should it so incredibly affect the overall rating for AffiliateWP! 🙁 🙂

I just started using this and with the latest update, really works well in offering store credit to my affiliates in lieu of payment. Many affiliates want the credit over the payment which… which is GREAT!
