AffiliateWP includes a full read-only RESTful API that allows developers and external applications to interact with data in the AffiliateWP databases.
This REST API Extended add-on adds Create, Update, and Delete operations into the mix, giving developers and external applications complete control over data in the AffiliateWP databases.
With the REST API Extended add-on, the following actions are available to the REST API for affiliates, creatives, referrals, visits, and payouts:
The possibilities enabled with this extended API are nearly endless. A few examples of possible applications include:
Visit and referral tracking from external websites, including non-WordPress sites
Referral tracking in custom and non-WordPress eCommerce systems
Synchronization of affiliate accounts across multiple databases and servers
Automatically updating affiliate accounts when changes are made from external applications
Creating referral records for affiliates each time an order is processed in an external payment processor
Custom affiliate areas hosted outside of WordPress
