    Hi – I have a simple set up —

    I want to have a parent level, and then as many subs as that parent signs up. I might add one more layer below that.

    But when I say to show referrer field on the affiliate registration form – what needs to go into that field for someone to identify the person who referred them? It doesn’t show a dropdown list to select from — so what do they need to enter to get the parent relationship set up correctly?

    I’ve tried email address, name – but none of those appears to work – and the new affiliate just gets assigned to the default affiliate. What must they enter? or is there a way to have parent affiliates shown in a list?

    Thanks for whatever help you can provide…

    Hi Kim,

    The Referrer Field will accept the Username or Affiliate ID of the affiliate that referred them. If the new affiliate clicked on the referring affiliate’s referral link, it will automatically detect it, and display their username within the field.

    In either case, it will connect the new affiliate to the affiliate in the Referrer Field.
