How to setup Infusionsoft's Affiliate Tracking to work with Spiffy Checkouts
Spiffy's integration with Infusionsoft can partially tap into Infusionsoft's native referral tracking features to set up a basic affiliate program. It will require some small changes to existing/new referral tracking link URLs that you setup in Infusionsoft, but your links that your affiliates receive and use will still be the same.
1.) Infusionsoft will not automatically set an existing affiliate that may already be tied to a contact, as the referral on an order.
2.) When setting up your commission program in Infusionsoft, you will need to set the 'Payout Type' as 'Upfront, Credit in Full'. Since Infusionsoft doesn't recognize manual payment recording as a valid pay-type for commissions, this is the only option that will calculate a commission for an affiliate on the order.
3.) Since you will have to set the payout type on your commission program to 'Upfront, Credit in Full', this will affect payouts on 'Payment Plan' products and 'Subscriptions'. Subscriptions will payout on EVERY subscription payment, and Payment Plans will record a FULL commission to your affiliate on the first payment
4.) Affiliates will not see orders record in their Infusionsoft Referral Partner Portal 'Orders' stat, as Infusionsoft only recognizes orders placed on Infusionsoft order for this stat
For a full affiliate program experience, we recommend using a service such as LeadDyno or Post Affiliate Pro as a 3rd party affiliate tracking software in conjunction with Spiffy. They operate much like a Facebook Ads pixel, where you would add a conversion pixel on your Thank You page.
To get started, click the profile icon on your Spiffy dashboard, and select Integrations.
If you haven't connected Infusionsoft yet, just click on the Infusionsoft integration options and follow the prompts. Once the connection is made, the options will become available.
As referenced above, a small change to the way you set up your 'Referral Tracking Link' URL is needed, to allow Spiffy Checkouts to work with Infusionsoft's affiliate tracking. You may need to update any existing links with this same method as well.
In your Infusionsoft Tracking Link setup, you will need to start every URL that you are setting up as an affiliate tracking link, with:
1.) replace APPNAME with YOUR infusionsoft application name
2.) Place your URL that you are wanting to drive traffic to at the end of this URL after the =
(ex: https://ab123.infusionsoft.com/aff.html?to=https://yourwebsite.com/pricing )
Here is some more documentation on this setup direectly from Infusionsoft's help center, if needed:
Affiliate link in Email > Sales Page > Checkout Page Embedded on your website.
NOTE: This code is exactly the same for every Checkout in Spiffy, so if you paste it on every page of your site now, you won't need to do it again.
Now, if you have set up your commission programs for your affiliates in Infusionsoft, you can use Infusionsoft affiliate links to track orders that are placed on your Spiffy Checkouts, and keep track of any payouts your affiliates may be entitled too!
