When an affiliate registers through the AffiliateWP Nulledregistration form, or you manually add an affiliate from within the admin, a sign up bonus will be awarded (amount set from within the settings). This bonus is created in the form of a referral with a description of “Sign Up Bonus”, which can be viewed from the Affiliates → Referrals screen in the admin. The affiliate will see this on the “Unpaid Earnings” and “Referrals” sections of their affiliate dashboard.
When “Require approval” is enabled from AffiliateWP’s settings, the affiliate will not receive the sign up bonus until their application is approved. Likewise, if you manually add an affiliate from within the admin, the sign up bonus is not created until they are approved.
