As in, do you mean you want to pay affiliates who bring customer signups to a premium area of your site? Your short question here is too vague for me and others here and the answers could go all over the place unless you help us. –  Volomike Aug 18 '10 at 20:43

Just saw this article the other day:

http://pluginize.com/blog/tutorials/how-to-create-a-simple-affiliate-program-in-wordpress/

They provide a tutorial and suggest using the following plugins:

The tutorial also has some code snippets that you will need to add. I haven't tried it out, but it would be great if you came back and posted your results, as I'm sure many people would find it useful. There are also a number of commercial products solely for this purpose; just google "affiliate platform Wordpress".
