AffiliateWP was founded in early 2014 with an aim to provide a top-notch, self-hosted, and intuitive affiliate management system for WordPress. It was born from frustrations with existing platforms that were unreliable, cluttered, and cumbersome to use. AffiliateWP was built to seamlessly integrate into the native user interface of WordPress and all of the popular eCommerce, membership, and form platforms.

Today it is the default choice for tens of thousands of WordPress site owners and is consistently rated as the best affiliate marketing tool for WordPress.
