AffiliationSoftware’s API

AffiliationSoftware’s API

AffiliationSoftware has an API (application programming interface) that allows developers to connect their affiliate program with their website and perform certain actions automatically. For example it is possibile to approve or decline the affiliates’ commissions based on the order status, register an user to the affiliate program when he/she register on your website, and much more!


How to use the AffiliationSoftware’s API

The AffiliationSoftware’s API can only be called with POST requests and by using the PHP cURL function. The response of each call returns a message in JSON format. To make it work you just have to enable the plugin, then a page will appear containing the URL and the KEY you need to communicate with your affiliate program via API.
