  • Receive referrals – This is a parameter that allows you to set wizAffiliates to asign the users that were not referred by anybody to a specified affiliate. To be more clear, in case a user registered without clicking an affiliate link first, he will not have an referral. This parameter is allowing you to set that referral to a specified affiliate.

  • Next assigned – This parameter is allowing you to set which user will get the next unassigned affiliate. It is used only for the next affiliate assigned and will be automatically changed to the next user based on the parameter “Ordering to receive referrals”.

  • Select the preferred payment gateway – Here you have the list with the payment gateways and their required parameters. In order for an affiliate to receive commissions he has to select one of the payment gateways and set all it's parameters.
