    I would like to know how to add a custom field so that my affiliates choosing the Paypal payout option can add their social security number to their account.

    I created a custom field:
    aff_paypal_ssnAffiliate Payout- SSN (Optional)[DATA]textfor affiliate commission payouts

    I would like to know how to make this field appear in the Affiliate Payout Option for Paypal.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The best solution is introduce new payout method (PayPal with SSN) and use it instead of default PayPal payout.
    In this case it will be upgrade proof solution.

    I implemented plugin that add such payout method:

    I hope it helps you to solve your use case.

    Best Regards.

    I figured out how to implement it.
    I save the code as aff-payout-paypalssn.php
    Then upload it to application/default/plugins/misc/aff-payout-paypalssn.php
    Then I activated the plugin.

    I seems to work very well. Thank you for this plugin!
