An important concept to keep in mind when creating affiliates in Zapier or through the REST API is that affiliates can participate in multiple programs.

If you do not indicate a program to add the affiliate to, they will be archived.

Zapier

To create new affiliates using Zapier, the following actions must take place: 

  • Action in "x" platform/app

  • Find/Create Affiliate (make sure to check the box!)

  • Add Affiliate to program

After adding them to a program, you can also (optionally) add them to an affiliate group. 

REST API

When creating affiliates using the REST API, it must be done in two steps:

  1. Create affiliate

  2. Add affiliate to program

Note: To launch trigger email notifications when the affiliate is added to a program, add ?send_welcome_email=true to the endpoint URL of the second step.
