Integrating with Stripe

Out-of-the-box features:
  • Conversion tracking
  • Commission based on order amount
  • Supports lifetime commissions
  • Auto-handle recurring commissions
  • Auto-handle refunds and disputes
  • Track order currency
  • Automatically add new customers as affiliate prospects
  • Track affiliate coupon code conversions

This guide describes how to install Tapfiliate in custom-made websites that have a direct integration with Stripe. You may require a developer to help you integrate.

If you use Stripe through a shopping cart like Shopify, or in a different platform, please follow the guide for the appropriate platform instead.

This guide includes instructions for two kinds of setups:

  • Immediate purchase: Useful for e-commerce, subscription boxes and other subsciption services without a free trial.
  • Sign up first, purchase later: Useful for e.g. SaaS and lead-generation businesses.

Both setups can be configured to automatically support recurring/lifetime commissions, by connecting your Stripe account. Automatic handling of refunds and disputes is also supported. Automation features hinge on the use of the values mentioned in this guide: The Stripe Customer ID (starting in cus) and the Stripe Charge ID (starting in ch). Any other value will not work.

For both setups, please first add the following code in the <head> of every page of your website:

  <script src="https://script.tapfiliate.com/tapfiliate.js" type="text/javascript" async></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
      (function(t,a,p){t.TapfiliateObject=a;t[a]=t[a]||function(){
      (t[a].q=t[a].q||[]).push(arguments)}})(window,'tap');

      tap('create', '((((YOUR ACCOUNT ID))))', { integration: "stripe" });
      tap('detect');
  </script>

{{{{NO_ACCOUNT_ID_SET_MESSAGE}}}}

Option 1: Immediate purchases

On your thank you page, add the following code:

  <script src="https://script.tapfiliate.com/tapfiliate.js" type="text/javascript" async></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
      (function(t,a,p){t.TapfiliateObject=a;t[a]=t[a]||function(){
      (t[a].q=t[a].q||[]).push(arguments)}})(window,'tap');

      tap('create', '((((YOUR ACCOUNT ID))))', { integration: "stripe" });
      tap('conversion', '((((STRIPE CHARGE ID))))', ((((ORDER AMOUNT)))), {customer_id: '((((STRIPE CUSTOMER ID))))'});
  </script>

Have your developer replace [[[[STRIPE CUSTOMER ID]]]] and [[[[STRIPE CHARGE ID]]]] placeholders with the respective Stripe values for current customer and charge. {{{{NO_ACCOUNT_ID_SET_MESSAGE}}}}

Option 2: Sign up first, purchase later

On your thank you page, add the following code:

  <script src="https://script.tapfiliate.com/tapfiliate.js" type="text/javascript" async></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
      (function(t,a,p){t.TapfiliateObject=a;t[a]=t[a]||function(){
      (t[a].q=t[a].q||[]).push(arguments)}})(window,'tap');

      tap('create', '((((YOUR ACCOUNT ID))))', { integration: "stripe" });
      tap('trial', '((((STRIPE CUSTOMER ID))))');
  </script>

Have your developer replace the [[[[STRIPE CUSTOMER ID]]]] placeholder with the Stripe customer id of the current customer. {{{{NO_ACCOUNT_ID_SET_MESSAGE}}}}

Note: To track future recurring/lifetime payments, enable Lifetime/recurring commissions in your commission structure page.
