Store admin can see any affiliate’s ‘affiliate link’ under their name in the Affiliate For WooCommerce dashboard. Additionally, go to Users > All Users. Locate the user and click on edit. You will see their affiliate link on their profile page.
Store admin can control whether an affiliate can earn a commission on their purchase or not. Refer to the setting ‘Affiliate self-refer’ to enable or disable this. Learn more about it from here (setting 11).
