When deleting an affiliate from an order may be necessary
There are a few separate scenarios where you might need to manually delete an affiliate from an order that’s already been placed on your site:
- If the affiliate is no longer active
- If the affiliate obtained the order through spammy or invalid methods (as outlined in your own business’ affiliate policy.)
