After you have set your plan and your affiliates begin to sell, you can see the analytics as an admin under the Affiliate Management menu.
a. You can see a list of all your affiliate users and also manually add new affiliates (for self-registration you can check this article). You can see who your affiliates are and essential details, such as:
How many customers they brought
The sales they have made
The commission rate you have agreed with them
The amount of money you owe them
What you have already paid them
b. If you click on an affiliate user you can see their profile and overall performance in the program. In particular, you can see details like:
- Their affiliate ID.
- Their payment method.
- Their referred customers.
- The referral link clicks.
- Customers they have brought.
- Commissions they have generated.
- When the due amount and the payments have been received.
c. You can also take two actions for each of your affiliates: Edit affiliate or deactivate them. If you choose to update the information of the affiliate, you can:
Change the affiliate’s name
Customize the commission rate
Choose the payment method (PayPal, wire, or other)
d. You can export all the affiliates’ data in a CSV or Xls file.
e. You can add a new Affiliate. The only restriction is that you can only add people who are already users of your school. So, if you are asked to add an affiliate manually, make sure they have registered with your school. Click on Add affiliate, add a user account in the related section, and make all other necessary settings.
On Commissions, you can see every detail for all commissions generated from your affiliate program. You can see what you have paid or must pay for each sale of your products and also on which date the purchase was made.
You may also accept or reject some commissions according to your will. In the different tabs you can see which ones are accepted, rejected, are due to be paid, and which ones are already paid. You can filter commissions by product or by date (last seven, thirty, or sixty days).
In this section, you can see which commissions are due payouts, which are completed, or which commissions are not payable yet. You can select payouts with a tickbox to mark them as paid, and you can filter them via the payment method you have chosen.
You can export data in several file forms. PayPal export will allow you to generate a file to be imported to PayPal for mass payment.
In the Leads section, you can see people who have registered with your school after finding the affiliate link. This list will help you create a separate group of people within your email marketing software.
Note: You can filter the leads by date and also export data in a CSV or Χls form.
In the Customers section, you can see people who bought your courses through your affiliate program and details about them like:
The affiliate they came from
The day they registered for your course
Note: You can filter customers by date and export data in a CSV or Χls form.
In the Dashboard, you can see all of the categories mentioned (Affiliates, Commissions, Payouts, Leads, and Customers).

- In case a user is already registered in your LearnWorlds school and uses an Affiliate link since they do not count as new customers, there will be no commission for the affiliate. The user will need to create a new account from the same browser that accessed the site via the affiliate link, and before the cookie expiration.
- If you would like to track a brand new user who has been signed up through an affiliate link, you can navigate to Report Center → Activity History → Events Log and detect the Referred by on the More info tab.
- You can find out more about how your Affiliates can access their personal affiliate dashboard in our respective article.
