The Magento Affiliate extension allows you to create a base of affiliates, who will promote your products over the Internet. You pay the affiliate basing on conversion of sales. If a customer follows an affiliate link to your website and makes a purchase in accordance with the rules of your campaign, the affiliate is paid.
Go to the Magento Affiliate → Manage Affiliates backend page. Here you can view the full list of affiliates in your store.
From the Manage Affiliates page, you have the possibility to View Customer, Edit, or Delete the affiliate. Choose the required affiliate and specify the necessary option in the Action field.
You can also change the status of the affiliate. Just select the Change Status option in the Actions field and specify the required status in the Status field.
