Affiliate Login Page

The Affiliate Login page is where your affiliates can log in to their account area to review their sales statistics, edit their contact information, create new TIDs, and more.

Example of the Affiliate Login page from the Leaf Template Package.

Affiliate Account Area vs. Customer Account Area
In previous versions of the shopping cart software, Affiliates and Customers were two different types of users, with separate logins. As of MMv4, affiliates are simply customers who have been authorized to work as affiliates. They no longer have two separate accounts with two separate usernames and passwords to remember.

However, even though a user now uses just one account to manage both their Affiliate and Customer information, the storefront still has a separate login screen for accessing their Affiliate account area and Customer account area. This has been done for security purposes, and also for backwards compatibility with previous versions of the shopping cart software.

Designing the Affiliate Login Page
Like all pages of the storefront, the design of the Affiliate Login page is controlled by an HTML template. This template is named affiliate_account_login.tpl. It can be edited just like any other webpage, either within the store's built-in template editor, or in a third-party HTML editor, such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage.
