If you're setting up coupon tracking, you'll need to assign the coupon you'd like to track to the affiliate.
Assigning a coupon
You can assign a coupon to an affiliate in one of three ways:
- Through the Interface - You can go to your Affiliates Overview > Click on the affiliate. In the right-side details panel, you will find the coupon field.
- If you have filled in the affiliate's coupon code, hit enter to save.
- If you're importing affiliates via .CSV file, you may also import their coupons.
- It's also possible to assign a coupon to an affiliate via the API by using this endpoint.
Keep in mind...
For coupon tracking to work, your shopping cart/platform must, first and foremost, be able to generate coupons.
Depending on your integration and whether coupon tracking is supported or not, you may need to take additional steps to set up coupon tracking. Please refer to our coupon tracking set-up guide to see if there are additional steps you need to take.
Can Tapfiliate generate coupons for me and create them in my store?
No - Tapfiliate does not have the ability to automatically create coupons or create these within your store. The reason for this is because we do not have permissions needed to make changes in your eCommerce or SaaS platform.
If you have a developer, however, they may be able to automate this process. They may use this endpoint to assign a coupon to the affiliate. They would need to find a way to create a coupon within your store.
