This article takes a look at two popular WordPress affiliate plugins: It compares AffiliateWP with Affiliates Pro in order to help you with your decision in choosing one.

There are several other alternatives to AffiliateWP and Affiliates Pro on the market which I have compared in separate articles. Go to my main WordPress Affiliate Plugins comparison to start your search.

Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you. Because such a verdict would depend on too many variables, including your server setup and personal preference, I have decided to stick to the hard facts for this feature comparison between AffiliateWP and Affiliates Pro.

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: AffiliateWP as well as Affiliates Pro both provide a unique interface from which you will create an affiliate program for your products and pay out commission. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.

AffiliateWP vs Affiliates Pro Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of AffiliateWP and Affiliates Pro.

To find the cheaper affiliate plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for AffiliateWP or Affiliates Pro (as well as other alternatives).

Price AffiliateWP Affiliates Pro
Minimum (1 Site) 49.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 199.00 USD 99.00 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 199.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 199.00 USD 199.00 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.

Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.

  1. Thanks for the detailed review!

    Is it possible to payout with store credit or a gift card with either plugin?

    That way it’s instore credit and I don’t have to dish out cash 🙂

  2. Thanks you for comparing! I bought affiliates pro and it was a nightmare! Keep in mind, I am not computer programmer, but I got errors and was completely locked out of my wordpress site for activating the plugins from the package (not changing their code). My paid site disconnected from my wordpress and I couldn’t find support until i replied to my receipt email from wordpress. I would not recommend affiliates pro to a novice like myself. Affiliates pro seems like a less effective version of affiliates WP.

  3. Thanks for the comparison and it is obvious that WP Affiliate is better. I was also looking for a comparison between WP Affiliate and Post Affiliate Pro.
