New customers as Affiliates automatically

Recommended Posts

 
I would like to automatically set new customers as affiliates in WHMCS without needing them to do it manually.
 
i'm trying to use this hook with whmcs 8.0.4 but some advice doesn't work?

add_hook('ClientAreaRegister', 1, function($vars)
{
    $adminUsername = 'admin'; // Optional for WHMCS 7.2 and later
    $results = localAPI('AffiliateActivate', array('userid' => $vars['userid']), $adminUsername);
});

that's one of Kian's hooks...

https://github.com/Katamaze/WHMCS-Action-Hook-Factory/blob/master/hooks/NewClientsAsAffiliates.php

I suppose in v8+, the results line of code should be...

$results = localAPI('AffiliateActivate', array('userid' => $vars['client_id']), $adminUsername);

... though personally I wouldn't use the adminusername part.

bear in mind that this hook only runs when a new client registers via the registration page - if they register via making an order,e.g via the cart, then this won't run... I would have thought using the ClientAdd hook point instead of ClientAreaRegister would cover both options.

I have modified in this way , could work ?

 

<?php

add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars)
{
    $adminUsername = 'ADMIN_USERNAME'; // Optional for WHMCS 7.2 and later
    $results = localAPI('AffiliateActivate', array('userid' => $vars['user_id']), $adminUsername);
});

nearly - you should only need to change the add_hook line...

add_hook('ClientAreaRegister', 1, function($vars)

to...

add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars)

the other lines should remain the same - and you will need to use $vars['client_id'] rather than $vars['user_id'] because the AffiliateActivate API expects a client ID value to be passed to it and not a user ID.

here reworked based on your suggestion, is it correct ?

 

<?php

add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars)
{
    $adminUsername = 'ADMIN_USERNAME'; // Optional for WHMCS 7.2 and later
    $results = localAPI('AffiliateActivate', array('userid' => $vars['client_id']), $adminUsername);
});

yes - I just tried it without the adminUsername parts and it works fine in v8.0.4

are you suggesting me to remove this line ?

$adminUsername = 'ADMIN_USERNAME'; // Optional for WHMCS 7.2 and later

 

<?php

add_hook('ClientAdd', 1, function($vars)
{
       $results = localAPI('AffiliateActivate', array('userid' => $vars['client_id']), $adminUsername);
});
