Affiliate Tracking

Automatically track affiliate campaigns and split funds with promotional partners. Enable affiliates and set up Paddle.js.

To use Affiliates, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Affiliates is disabled by default. If you would like to enable this, please email us.
  • Ensure you have set up Paddle.js by calling the Paddle.Setup() method with your Vendor ID (shown in the code below) on page load for all pages the user navigates to between the affiliate link landing page and the final checkout page:
<script src="https://cdn.paddle.com/paddle/paddle.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	Paddle.Setup({ vendor: 1234567 });
</script> 

Note:

  • Affiliate tracking will only work when the checkout is invoked using Paddle.js. It will not work with static checkout links, checkout links generated via the custom checkout API nor will it work using the override parameter on Paddle.js with a custom checkout link.
  • The maximum attribution window for all affiliate links is 30 days*. This means that any attribution window specified in your Affiliate dashboard that is longer than 30 days will only track orders made in the initial 30 days. *Reduced to 7 days in Safari following the release of iOS 12.2 and Safari 12.1 on macOS due to browser restriction.

Paddle Affiliates

By doing the above you’re automatically integrated with Paddle’s affiliate tracking, with no additional integration work required.

You can manage your affiliate program, commissions, invite and approve affiliates from the Affiliates section of your Paddle Dashboard.

In addition to tracking sales and conversions, Paddle.js will automatically track and attribute the following actions for affiliates:

  • Conversion/Sale (automatic)
  • Unique Visits (automatic)
  • Page Views (automatic)
  • Downloads (requires Download Tracking integration)
  • Audiences/Email Subscribers (requires Audience integration)

Analytics on activity for the above actions being driven by your affiliates is available within the Affiliates section of your Paddle Dashboard.
