The Affiliate System

Affiliates help you generate revenue by referring customers to your business in exchange for a one-time or recurring commission.

Managing Affiliates

Admins can manage affiliates, assign orders to them, pay commissions, and view referral and payout history in the WHMCS Admin Area.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links include unique codes to set cookies and track the referrals that originate from each of your affiliates in WHMCS.


The Affiliates tab allows you to configure the WHMCS affiliate system.

Activate an Affiliate

After you enable and configure the Affiliate system, you can convert existing clients into affiliates in the Client Area or Admin Area.

Customize Affiliate Links

Customize the redirect location for your affiliates' links by updating your WHMCS system's domain or by editing the aff.php file.
