How to Install and Use the Lifetime Commissions Add-on for AffiliateWP
With the Lifetime Commissions add-on a customer is linked to an affiliate, for life! This allows the linked affiliate to receive a commission on all future purchases completed by the customer. Lifetime commissions are a huge incentive for any affiliate looking to promote your products and services. Your affiliates will work much harder to get linked to a customer, and as a result your sales will increase dramatically.
