This feature helps you connect a customer to an affiliate so that all future orders made by the connected customer will result in a commission for the affiliate, regardless of the use of the affiliate link/coupon.
To connect a customer to an affiliate, go to Affiliates > Connect customers. Next, you can choose to search for an existing customer or add a new customer.
After selecting a customer and the affiliate you want to connect with, click Connect. One affiliate can be connected to many customers, but each customer can be assigned to only one affiliate.
