It only displays content when an affiliate is in the process of being followed (example below).
Display content only when an affiliate is not being tracked. Useful if you need to provide a reserve.

Affiliate Info also works with AffiliateWP’s Credit Last Referrer option, which means that the information changes every time you use a new referrer URL.
Some possible uses of this plugin are:
It shows the customer who referred them
Show a custom message based on the tracked partner. For example, “You were referred by John” or “Your site representative is John”. This builds trust between the partner and the user.
Here’s how you can do this:
Your site representative [affiliate_info_name]
To make this message only appear when an affiliate is being followed, you can use the [affiliate_info_referred] shortcode:
[affiliate_info_referred]Your site representative [affiliate_info_name][/affiliate_info_referred][/affiliate_info_referred]
Allows the site visitor to contact the affiliate.
There may be instances where affiliates are in direct contact with customers, so you can display the affiliate’s email address or social media accounts to reach them directly.
Create a landing page
Create a landing page for your products that show the current tracked affiliate’s information. This is especially useful if an affiliate does not have a website, or you want more control over how your products are advertised. Affiliates can link directly to your landing page with their referral URL, and their information will be displayed.
