Adding an Affiliate to an order

With Spiffy you can add an affiliate to an order after it’s been processed. This will calculate any unpaid commission on the order for all enabled items, and credit the commission amount to the selected affiliate. 

  1. Navigate to an order record, click Add Affiliate in the top right
  2. Select an Affiliate Program (only the affiliate programs linked with this checkout will display)
  3. Choose the Affiliate you would like to add to the order
  4. Click Review Changes, showing the commission that will be credited to the selected affiliate once you save


Not able to select a program or affiliate on an existing order?
Check your Affiliate Program settings, and audit the program’s assigned Checkouts and Subscription Plans. Be sure the Checkout the order was created through is added to the program, and, if you’re selling a subscription, that BOTH the Checkout and Subscription Plan are assigned to the program.
Learn more about Affiliate Program Setup.

Changing an Affiliate and/or Affiliate Program on an order

If you have questions on how to make commission adjustments to specific Affiliate Programs read our documentation on Affiliate Program Setup for more details.

Adjusting Affiliate Commission on Refunds

When refunding an order or a payment, you can choose to clawback commission. This option is turned on by default. If you do not want to clawback commission, select the Adjust Affiliate Commission toggle button and turn it off.

Note: After a commission adjustment has been made through a refund, the ‘Earned on order‘ amount shown on the order will not change. However, navigating to the affiliate’s profile will reflect the adjustment and show the correct pending amount to be paid out.

If you have questions on how to process a refund for orders or payments, read our documentation on Refunds for more details.
