    I was originally looking at amember for a new recurring service I am starting soon but since I am liking it very much from what I have seen I am now considering moving all my products over to amember.

    The biggest problem would be my affiliate program. I am currently using e-junkie for my (one-time payment) products and have quite many active affiliates there.

    Hence my question is if it would be possible to...
    1. import all the affiliates from e-junkie to the new amember affiliate program.

    2. redirect all old e-junkie affiliate links to the new amember affiliate link of the same user.

    Since I already noticed the import page in amember I don't think 1 will be a problem but what about 2? Is that even possible or has someone already tried something like that before? Any tips appreciated!



    Another quick unrelated question I have: Is it possible to combine the "select on of x products" and "check x products" in amember? So that my customers would have to choose one of products a,b,c, and could check any of products x,y,z for example?

    I'd create a product and add all the affiliates to it. Also create a field in amember to store the ejunkie affiliate id to be used in Q2.

    If you imported the ejunkie affiliate id, and ejunkie passes this on the URL, you could then have a script check the amember user database for the ejunkie affiliate id, and tag the user with the amember affiliate id then.

    Thanks David, but why would I need to create a product - can't I import the affiliates as general affiliates for all products? And with create a field you mean under "Utilities > Add Fields"?

    Just a habit of mine to put affiliates into a product- i find it easier to manage.
