As well as this, Adsanity also provides extremely useful performance reports for each individual unit on your site.

Ultimate Affiliate Pro

Ultimate Affiliate Pro is absolutely one of the few premium WordPress plugins to think about when it comes to affiliate marketing. It comes with a long list of rich and useful features such as affiliate ranking, an unlimited number of affiliates, custom commissions, special performance bonuses and offers, Stripe and PayPal payouts and lifetime commissions.

Alongside these awesome features, it also comes with other, expected integrations such as banners, tiered commissions, signup referrals, social sharing, multiple integrations, shortcodes, custom form fields, reports, notifications, coupons, landing page commissions, a wallet, multi-lingual support, QR codes and friendly affiliate links among others.

This is probably our leading choice among affiliate plugins however, it does come with a (justified) £27 price tag.

YITH WooCommerce Affiliates

This next one is a completely free affiliate plugin for those of you that work exclusively with WooCommerce. It extends WooCommerce by adding the ability for you to create affiliate profiles and commisions.

YITH WooCommerce is incredibly easy to use and setup but still comes with some advanced features such as enabling affiliate registration with shortcodes and a dashboard to track all affiliate progress. All in all, YITH WooCommerce Affiliates reinforces your WooCommerce store as far as generating traffic and sales go.


OutreachPlus makes a good case for being probably the best email outreach software available on the market. What it does is allow you to run and manage your entire affiliate email outreach campaigns from a single dashboard, while automating the process of sending personalized email replies to affiliates.

Other powerful marketing features it comes with are email tracking and smart follow-ups. We believe OutreachPlus is a must-have tool for reaching out to get backlinks, press mentions, connecting with influencers, building authority, and generating traffic.

Affiliates Manager

For a free affiliate management system, this plugin packs a punch. It rivals premium affiliate WordPress plugins, with with a suite of features that will drive you crazy, however, installing and using this manager is very straightforward as everything is laid out clearly.Affiliates Manager gives you complete control of everything from affiliate registration to payments and individual commissions to the ability to make mass payments via PayPal, which is excellent. On top of that, you can create banner ads and creatives for your affiliates, integrate the plugin to MailChimp, track ad impressions, and customize affiliate messages among other things.
