Every website is flooded with forms. Chances are, you’ve probably filled out several forms yourself from the moment you opened your internet browser.
Signing in to check your email: online form. Booking a dinner reservation: online form. Entering your credit card information to make a purchase: online form. Logging in to your Affiliate Dashboard on Easy Affiliate: online form. You get the picture…
As an affiliate program owner, you too rely on online forms for key actions that take place on your site, such as affiliate applications, affiliate sign-ups, a contact page, and more. But what if you had a way to monetize an online form to help boost your affiliate sales?
Now you can with WPForms! We’re excited to share that our newest integration will allow WPForms users to add beautifully designed online forms to your Easy Affiliate program – including more ways to collect payments and even track affiliate sale commissions.

How WPForms Integrates with Easy Affiliate
With WPForms, you can enhance the overall look of your website – including your sales-converting pages. By improving the payment process on your site, you’ll also provide a better user experience for your customers. This ultimately increases your chances of making a sale.
But wait, there’s more!
Unique to our Easy Affiliate integration with WPForms is the ability to monitor affiliate activity. In use case terms, when an affiliate initiates a completed payments form, the sale will show up in your Easy Affiliate Dashboard, along with the commission earned.
Increase Sales with a Payment Processing Form
When a customer works their way through to the final stages of your sales funnel, you may think that you’ve got the sale in the bag. Wrong! Even at the height of worldwide ecommerce sales in 2020, the online cart abandonment rate was still 88.05%.
Your order form is the last page a customer sees before making their purchase. If something about your page just doesn’t sit right with the consumer – whether it looks unsafe, is crowded with upselling ads, or requires visitors to create an account – they’re very unlikely to complete the purchase.
Using the right combination of WPForms add-ons, you can be sure to present a safe and professional-looking payment form so customers can be confident with their purchase.
Automatic Commissions Tracking
Making a sale is always exciting, but when you manage an affiliate program, you also need to see exactly where that sale came from. With our WPForms integration, every affiliate sale will be monitored to accredit the affiliate and calculate the commission earned.
Here’s a rundown on what that process will look like after you get your payments form up and running:
Affiliates will lead consumers to make a purchase on your site where you have built a WPForms payment form.
Then, when the consumer completes a purchase, the sale will register as a transaction in Easy Affiliate > Transactions. Here, you can see the details of the sale, including the affiliate name, product, price, and the commission issued:
