Easy Affiliate – The “All-in-One” Affiliate Program Plugin for WordPress
Brought to you by the same team behind MemberPress, Easy Affiliate is the most secure self-hosted affiliate program manager out there. And it integrates with your existing WordPress site beautifully.
Out of the box, this fully featured plugin comes packed with essential tools that will take your affiliate program up a few notches from the get-go.
Easy Affiliate goes beyond the average affiliate program plugin to offer you a simpler setup, more customization options, better flexibility, higher security measures, and a ton more great features.
What Sets Easy Affiliate Apart from AffiliateWP?
Every affiliate program is different, and yours is no exception. You might sell digital downloads, online courses, physical products or services, access to an exclusive online community, memberships (or maybe even a bit of everything).
In any case, Easy Affiliate can help you increase your sales.
What does Easy Affiliate have that AffiliateWP doesn’t? We touched on it already, but allow us to elaborate a bit.
Right now, Easy Affiliate plans start at $99.50 annually, while AffiliateWP’s lowest plan will run you $149 per year. And, as mentioned, Easy Affiliate charges zero added transaction fees – which is kind of a big deal.
With AffiliateWP, the payout fees vary by the country where the affiliate resides. And the least you pay on a $100 payout to a U.S. affiliate is $106.39.
With Easy Affiliate, payouts are through PayPal, so the per-transaction fee PayPal charges is all you’re required to pay (2.9% plus $.30 per transaction).
Easy Affiliate starts at $99.50 annually, so the transaction fee savings will pay for the plugin after just 15 $100 payouts.
Here's the math for a $100 payout to an affiliate residing in Canada:
|AffiliateWP $100 Payout|
Payout Service Fee: 3%
Payout Transfer Fee: C3.5% + $.30
Outside Processor Fee: 2.9% + $.30
|Easy Affiliate $100 Payout|
Payout Service Fee: FREE
Payout Transfer Fee: FREE
Outside Processor Fee: 2.9% + $.30

Advanced Fraud Protection
The increase in affiliate program success has also led to a rise in affiliate fraud. Whether it’s human or bot-based fraud, any loss is a direct hit to your business.
Easy Affiliate helps ensure the safety of your affiliate program with advanced security measures to accurately track commissions and monitor affiliate behavior.
This makes Easy Affiliate the most secure affiliate program on the market.
The Easy Affiliate Fraud Prevention Add-on protects your affiliate program 24/7, automatically flagging or rejecting suspicious affiliate behavior before you pay out.
1-Click Affiliate Payouts
Easy Affiliate offers several ways to pay your affiliates, including our most convenient PayPal One-Click payment processing feature.
With the built-in PayPal integration, paying your affiliates is quick and painless. All you do is log in to your account once a month, review your affiliates’ activity, then click Pay. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
You can also pay your affiliates using PayPal Mass Payment files and offline payments.
A Seamless Switch for Your Affiliates
You may be wondering how your affiliates will react to a new affiliate program platform.
Fortunately, Easy Affiliate showcases all the features your affiliates have come to appreciate with AffiliateWP. What’s more, you can customize the look and feel of
Easy Affiliate to ensure a smooth transition with our easy-to-navigate Affiliate Dashboard. You also get more ways to keep in touch with your affiliates, and you can integrate the awesome link management tool Pretty Links (more on that later).
All-Inclusive Affiliate Dashboard
Easy Affiliate makes navigating your affiliate program easier than ever. With our Affiliate Dashboard, you can create a centralized hub for your affiliates, providing them with everything they need to market your business.
Affiliates will quickly learn how to engage with Easy Affiliate because they’ll have everything they need right there on their home screen.
From the dashboard, affiliates can access their referral links, monitor their stats, view payment history, download creatives, generate their own custom links, and more:
The Affiliate Dashboard is pre-styled, but you can modify the user interface to match your brand’s identity easily.
By enabling the Pro Dashboard, you can design your site’s color scheme, insert your brand logo, and introduce affiliates to your new site by leaving a quick note in the welcome message area:
Integrated Email Marketing
After you’ve got your Affiliate Dashboard set up exactly how you want it, you won’t want to wait another second to share it with your affiliates.
While entirely optional, another great way to give affiliates a heads-up on the new platform is through email.
Easy Affiliate integrates with popular email marketing services such as ActiveCampaign, MailChimp, and ConvertKit. Sending a quick email blast to notify your affiliates of the change can help spark interest to go in and check things out.
Powerful Link Management with Pretty Links
Managing links is key in affiliate marketing – and Easy Affiliate integrates with a tool your affiliates will love.
Once you install Pretty Links, Easy Affiliate detects it and automatically shortens any custom links your affiliates create through their dashboard. Pretty Links allows affiliates to optimize their link performance by:
- Creating nice, neat, and clickable links
- Customizing links for better brand recognition
- Implementing A/B testing to track and improve sales
- Tracking visitor activity and conversions to improve user experience
As for monitoring existing AffiliateWP links, Easy Affiliate and Pretty Links do that too. Any AffiliateWP link activity and performance is tracked in the Affiliate Dashboard.
