My name is Lori Ballen, and I’m a 6-figure affiliate marketer. Today, I will show you how to use WooCommerce on your website when you’re creating a store using affiliate links rather than the straight add-to-cart option. 

WooCommerce is an eCommerce plugin for WordPress that allows you to build an online store. You can mix physical products, digital products, and affiliate products with this plugin. 

For physical products, you’ll enter shipping, sales tax, and so on. For affiliate products, where you are only making a commission on a product that you don’t personally build, stock, or ship, you can use affiliate links. 

When somebody is interested in learning more about an item or purchasing a product, you can replace the add-to-cart button with a ‘learn more or ‘buy now button that takes them to the affiliate offer. 

For example, I have a relationship with Cratejoy subscription boxes, and they give me affiliate links to use on the WooCommerce blocks. 

Here are the steps:

  1. Set up your WordPress Website. Check out Flywheel if you need hosting + WordPress
  2. Add your Theme (You might like Astra with the Elementor Pro Page Builder). It’s fast and clean.
  3. Set up a WooCommerce Account
  4. Upload your WooCommerce Plugin, and Activate
  5. Create a New Product
  6. Change it from a Simple Product to an Affiliate Product. 
  7. Enter your affiliate link. (It works with Amazon too)

Be very careful about page speed when using plugins like WooCommerce. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of WordPress Plugins for WooCommerce that can weigh your website down. 

Using a good website host like Flywheel, coupled with a clean, fast theme like Astra, and a lightweight page builder like Elementor, your page can load in 1-2 seconds.
