Even though you may not find it particularly important, your affiliate program’s Terms and Conditions page sits at the core of the program, as it outlines the rights and obligations of both parties.
On one hand, it illustrates the way you run your program and how you will honor your affiliates’ efforts. On the other hand, it let’s affiliates know their freedoms and limitations when promoting your product.
Taking into consideration the above two points, we highly recommend you to set up a Terms and Conditions page before starting your affiliate program. Let’s see how you can do it:
Adding a new WordPress page
In essence, your Terms and Conditions page is a regular page in WordPress. If you already know how to add a new page, skip to the next section where we’ll go into linking the page to SliceWP.
However, if you’re not sure how to add a new page, follow these steps:
- Navigate to your WordPress admin dashboard.
- From the sidebar menu, navigate to Pages > Add New.
- Here, write the contents of your Terms and Conditions page and then publish it.
Quick note: If you’re not sure what your Terms and Conditions page should contain, please read our guide here. It takes you step-by-step through the information you should look at having in the page.
Linking the new page with SliceWP
Now that you have your affiliate program’s Terms and Conditions page set up, let’s link it to SliceWP.
By going this, your potential affiliates will be required to agree to the terms when registering for an account through SliceWP’s affiliate registration form.
Technically, a required checkbox will be added to your affiliate registration form, similar to the one in the below screenshot. Without checking it, users will not be able to finish their affiliate registration.
So, to link the page, please follow these steps:
- Navigate to your WordPress admin dashboard > SliceWP > Settings > General (tab) > Pages Settings (section).
- For the Terms and Conditions Page drop-down option select the page you just published.
- Optionally, if you want to customize the label that appears next to the checkbox, complete the Terms and Conditions Label label.
