Dev Tools Features, Benefits & Use Cases
Affiliate Program API: Do More With Your Favorite Platforms
With our REST API you can say “yes” to clients using their favorite platforms with Easy Affiliate and craft powerful custom solutions.
The listed API Routes include get/create/update/delete:
Your client uses an ecommerce platform that doesn’t directly integrate with Easy Affiliate.
Use the Create Commission API key on each affiliate-related sale on your e-commerce platform. Automatically trigger the API to create and log the appropriate commission in Easy Affiliate.
Webhooks: Offer Time-Saving Solutions
Add value to your solutions by setting up streamlined automations so your clients can switch up administrative hassle with money-making hustle.
Send post requests to any URL you want when the following events happen in Easy Affiliate:
- Affiliate added/removed/blocked/logged in
- Creative added/deleted
- Campaign added/deleted
- Payment added/deleted/updated
- Commission added/deleted/updated
- Transaction added/deleted/updated
- Affiliate application submitted/approved/ignored
And there’s no limit. Set up as many webhooks as you need!
Generate a webhook key, enter the webhook URL in the add-on and select which events you want to request.
Your client uses a CRM that doesn’t natively connect with Easy Affiliate. To make the most of their chosen CRM they need to manually input affiliate data.
Use the Affiliate Added webhook to automatically add each new affiliate sign-up to your client’s chosen CRM, ensuring all teams have the latest data with no boring admin required.
Job’s a good’un!
