Troubleshooting

"It doesn't work"

Did you remember to click an affiliate link before making a test order? It might sound silly, and it is a bit like forgetting to plug in the computer, but this is also the #1 reason for this to fail. You have to click an affiliate link before testing the sale tracking.

Is your request getting redirected? (1.4.x and above only) Go to System->Configuration->General->Web->Url Options. Make sure "Redirect to Base URL if requested URL doesn't match it" is set to "No". This isn't strictly necessary, however, if you don't do this, anyone who doesn't follow the proper www'ness in links will have tracking requests dropped. Setting this to "No" prevents these kinds of problems.

Did you install using the Magento Connect Manager? For some reason the Magento Connect Manager works VERY poorly on some servers. Try a manual install (download here.)

Did you configure it properly? Double check your configuration, and pay attention to the hints with each option. If you don't have hints with your options, the Magento Connect Manager may have installed an ancient version. Try a manual install (download here.)

(1.3.x and earlier only) Are you using a custom default theme? Some designers deliver themes as custom default (top level) themes. This can hurt your compatibility with future Magento updates, and prevents many extensions from working until files are copied over. If you have a custom default theme installed, you'll need to copy layout/pap.xml and template/pap/ into your new theme. This is a fundamental Magento limitation. Non-default themes will not have a problem.

Are you using an unsupported payment processor? All non-redirecting payment processors are supported. PayPal and Google Checkout are also supported now. Other redirecting payment methods will likely require special additional integration.

"I get an error 'Could not communicate order status change to PAP. Your API file may not match your PAP installation.'"

This is a notice, not an error. Everything is OK, but one of the features of the connector module didn’t work. Usually this means you need to update the API file. This shouldn’t normally happen, except with PAP hosted accounts.

To fix it, you should log into your PAP account, go to “Tools” and download the latest API file. Use FTP to upload this file to your server at lib/PAP (you should overwrite the existing PapApi.class.php file.)

It is possible that you could get this, or a similar error, if the API username and password in the configuration are incorrect. Make sure to set these to your PAP merchant's username and password (the ones you use to log into PAP and download the updated API file.)

"I can't figure out how to ____________"

Don't give up. Don't get angry. It is almost certainly possible. Contact support or post in the forum and ask for help. It's free, and you'll feel better.

"I found a bug" Contact support or post in the forum and report it. We'll fix it ASAP.

"Do you do custom development" No, not at this time.

Post Affiliate Pro Connector 2.5 5 22 22
we've been using PAP for almost a year and have to say we are looking for an alternative. Difficult to use and all sorts of issues/conflicts...had to disable it again yesterday as it was not allowing customers to complete an order....aaarrrgghhh December 29, 2011
Not working with 1.6.1 ? Fatal error: Call to a member function IsConfigured() and after install i cant get to magento confic ? it shows Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons. Error log record number: 473774768554 December 8, 2011
This is awesome. I can't wait to get my affiliate store going and making some $$$ October 28, 2011
Works like a charm. Head's up - 1.5.1 likes a manual install of this extension. Also be sure your store currency matches that inside PAP. Also, if you are using the PAP hosted version you need to put 'affiliates' in the admin configuration for this extension not 'affiliate'. September 29, 2011
After install it gives a 404 error after i did all jobs need to run the module i.e clear cache, recomplilation ,logout and login , manual download and install but not working. September 29, 2011
Gurudog, Yes, it works with 1.5.x CE. Did you install using Magento Connect Manager or the manual installation instructions? Magento Connect Manager seems to be very unpredictable and I don't recommend it. Manual installation seems to be more robust. I've periodically seen cases over the years where Magento will get into a bad state and lock out the administrator. I don't know the reasons for this, but it seems to be completely unrelated to any particular module (I've seen it in all sorts of stores with no similarities). If you are truely locked out of your admin account (you enter the password, but it it won't let you in) the only way I know to get in is by doing surgery on your database. Backup your data, then search the magento forums for information. There are a lot of different flavors of this, and a lot of different varieties of solution. It's impossible to say which one will work for you. September 27, 2011
Jason, Officially, I can only assure you that it works with Community Edition, because it's not tested against PE or EE. Unofficially I know that plenty of folks have made it work with EE, and I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work with PE and EE. September 27, 2011
It works on 1.5. The information is accurate. The version you see in the search is the version of the connector itself, which often imitates the version of Magento, but doesn't have to. July 20, 2011
Just a reminder to everybody: please don't post support questions, errors, etc. in this thread. Post them in this modules forum board http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewforum/12801/ We monitor the forum for questions and respond right away, sometimes within minutes, but we don't monitor this thread so if you post here, expect a reply to take months. @robinio1956, this has been discussed in length earlier. We don't charge for the module, but PAP is made by a totally different company, so we have no control over the fact that it costs money. We can't magically make PAP free, just like Magento can't make your payment gateway free. @jasonfried, we don't use EE (prefer CE) so we can't test against it or guarantee that it will work. That said, it SHOULD work. We did have some scattered reports suggesting that some sort of difference with the way that EE handles PayPal might be conflicting with the module, but it still isn't clear if that is actually what was going on. No other EE specific error reports outside of the possible PayPal issue, so most likely it is working fine. We just can't test it, so we can't guarantee it. @rainmakercommerce, you've probably either misconfigured the module, or need to update your API file. Look through the forums mentioned earlier. This is the most common problem that people have. The next update will include some automated checks to help users prevent this. @Andrew_, the module works with PAP hosted, but there are some gotchas. You'll need to update your API file (see the forums), and if Magento is running on a secure server, you'll need to get Quality Unit to install an SSL certificate on your PAP domain. @serge2520, update your API file. See the forums for info. March 9, 2011
It says free but once installed you will need a PAP Connector requires Post Affiliate Pro in order to work. Checking the website it will cost $ 119 per year, so the install is free but you will need to pay. Even the "free" version shows you the same stuff. Hate it when they say its free but on the end you need to pay. February 12, 2011

Hi, I am quite torn, I like the reputation of PAP, but I plan to offer services and goods with different level of commission available.
So far I am unable to find the answer if that is possible.

I assume when refund is processed the commission gets deducted automatically.

Thank you
