An affiliate program is one of the most powerful ways to market your products online. With well-organized affiliate program, you can gain increased traffic and sales, generate qualified leads, extend your brand awareness, and get better search engine rankings.

The Magento Affiliate extension allows you to organize automated advertising campaigns that will help promote your products or services round the clock. With the Magento Affiliate module, you pay the affiliate based on conversion of sales. If a customer follows an affiliate link to your website and makes a purchase in accordance with the rules of your campaign, the affiliate is paid. You can pay him or her fixed percent rate, tier percent rate, fixed amount or tier amount.

So the charm of Magento Affiliate is that it allows you to build a team of sales reps which use their visitors and opt-in lists to advertise your products and services. You don’t have to pay them anything until they make a profit for you.

Allergy Store

Review by Michael | Jan 11, 2016

Very good extension. The support at Aheadworks has been great. Easy to work with and fast to respond.

Excellent Plugin

Review by Christos | Jul 9, 2014

Works great out of the box, only the basics of affiliate but enough for small seller with few affiliates. I definitely recommend it.

Great for Offline and Online Affiliates

Review by Jeffrey | Apr 10, 2014

I needed an affiliate plugin that could handle automatic affiliate updates that come in from my online bookstore and from sales pages, and I also needed to be able to handle manual entries for offline partners. This plugin offers the kind of flexibility I was looking for. I'm sure there are more powerful plugins out there, but this one fits my needs perfectly.

Very good, not flawless

Review by Sandy | Feb 5, 2014

Had some problems with this plugin initially. Aw support team, however, managed to sort them out reasonably fast.
ATM, everything is working as expected, the app is quite easy to use for both the admin and the end-customer.

Simple Yet Flexible Affiliate Program

Review by Jeffrey Arrowood | Dec 19, 2013

I was looking for an affiliate extension that would fit into my current online and offline setup. I have a couple partnerships that require special terms that are not standard for my affiliates. I also have an affiliate website where my affiliates can grab their swipe copy, banners, and ads and this site requires an affiliate code. Finally, I wanted an easy way to reward my customers for spreading the word. This extension does it all - customizable affiliate programs, affiliate code (though the code is a horribly long string), and easy customer integration within Magento.

The extension where I would send my affiliates for the promotional material so it doesn't matter to me that there are no options for offering banners, etc. with the affiliate links. I have that taken care of within my affiliate website. So for me this was the perfect affiliate extension.


Review by Scott | Dec 7, 2013

Everything I was looking for. 2 things would be:

1. Add some sort of affiliate banner generator to the extension, so people can integrate their individual tracking codes into clickable images. Blog owners don't typically understand how to do this manually

2. Withdraw limit. There is built in minimum but not maximum. I don't want to get a surprise withdraw request someday for $1000 or something. Need to be able to set maximum, and (optionally) send reminders automatically when threshold is met

Easy setup

Review by Attila | Nov 14, 2013

It was quite easy to set this module up. As with all AheadWorks modules, extending the functionality, to include custom features was easy, too. We've just added a few affiliates, and hope to increase sales through them.

Simple in use

Review by Geoff | Oct 30, 2013

This extension is really simple in use. My Magento knowledge is not deep, but I've managed to set everything myself. Several programs, organized with its help showed good results.

Nice and smooth extension

Review by Allard | Sep 15, 2013

Simple and good extension. Does what it should do. We tested more Affiliate extensions but this one did the job best. A+++

Good but I'll have to customize it

Review by ElenaMBelda | Apr 22, 2013

I first tried PostAffiliatePro and their technical support did not make it work properly, and I have to say it is very difficult to configure. So I decided to bui this one from AheadWorks. I installed it and discovered you can't track the sales properly on a multidomain store, because the urls that are tracked must include a code, so I have to do some modifications to make it work. Overall opinion: good

Built up a powerful affiliate network

Review by Matt | Feb 1, 2013

We've managed to attract a good number of webmasters to promote our store.Now they generate about 15% of our turnover without any additional efforts from our end.
We set up this addon, created some promo materials and announced affiliate program

Review by Steven | Dec 19, 2012

Recently bought this extension and it works flawlessly. The generation of affiliate links works great on the front end and the use of custom reports for the affiliates are very useful.

Money well spend. The guys have done a brilliant job!

Simple and good, but not yet complete

Review by Hans Verhoeven | Aug 22, 2012

Having a lot of aHeadworks extensions running on serveral sites I was waiting for this one because I now they make good extensions.

And they didn't disappoint me. This one works like a charm too. Installation and setup is a breeze.

Two remarks: the account page for the affiliate is somewhat confusing. The list of the available campaigns is the same as an ordinary article list. It is not completly clear that there are campaigns available instead of articles. One should have the option to put some describing text in the intro.

Another thing is something that doesn't affect every shop I think. I have a shop with a few customer groups. Each group is assigned to a couple of catalogue price rules which gives them discount on selected products. Because of the fact that campaigns are assigned to customergroups, the visitors coming from this affiliate get the same discount as the affiliate himself.

But I don't want that. I want to have another discount for visitors coming from an affiliate. So I have to make a different customergroup for affiliates with own price rules and put customers who can be an affiliate in two customergroups, one with there own discount and one with the discount for their visitors. This gives me more administration as I want.

But maybe this becomes a feature in a new release.

Overall: good extension you want to use!


Great module and fantastic support

Review by Oliver | Jul 24, 2012

I've got no idea what the comment above is referring to! I've bought modules form these guy on a number of occasions and will always chose ahead works over others if the price is the same precisely because they always seem so helpful!

I've tried a couple of Affiliate modules now and this one has been the best so far - the fact that it's open source has been very important as we've needed to customise it a little, but the code was well structured and easy to work with.

Promising but support has been poor

Review by Mark | Jul 2, 2012

We purchased this product recently and initially the product looks very promising, however there have been some installation issues and the support to resolve them has been pretty average so far.
Hopefully Aheadworks can get there act together so I can give a more positive review.
