A manually inserted order is incorrectly associated with an affiliate. Why?

If you have clicked an affiliated link (to test your program, for example), an order made from your device can show as a referred order and a commission may be added to the affiliate's earnings.

To fix this issue, use the options “Block certain user IP addresses” and/or “Block client's emails” in the Settings. With the first option you can block your IP address and with the second the email(s) you are using when making orders manually. Doing this will block all orders coming from that IP/email from being inserted into the Affiliatly database.
