How do My Clients Create and Manage Affiliate Sales

Help your clients generate revenue

This article shows your clients how to create affiliate links and track commissions on their Account page.

Before you start

If you want to give clients the ability to create their own affiliate links, go to your Affiliates page and confirm two settings.

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Click Settings on the main dashboard.
  3. Click the Affiliates tile under the e-commerce heading.
  4. Scroll down to the General Settings heading.

Make sure you enter a Redirect link. This URL can link to any page on your e-commerce site. One URL can track all purchases that are eligible for affiliate commissions.


You can create product-specific URLs. Say, for example, you write a review about coffee grinders. You could include a specific link to a coffee bean grinder page on your site. That product-specific link can also track all affiliate-available purchases on your site beyond the grinder.

Upmind attaches a unique code to this link and uses the URL to track purchases and assign commissions to your affiliate. You need to share this link with clients (e.g. via a ticket) who contact you and want to become an affiliate.

Go to the next heading and make sure Customer Controls is enabled. If this toggle is disabled, your clients cannot create affiliate links by themselves.
