I have a requirement where I am developing a Windows Store App (Free) but I would like to let my affliates advertise them through their sites and their apps (via in-app purchases). From my app, I want to know which affliate this is associated with (either via a local shared file or tracking in-app purchases origin etc.)
I see some not so good options (such as writing a shared file in Documents folder from affliate app, then reading it from my app). I wonder if I can use In-App purchase or licencing to track this.
What is the best option for this use case?

I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do here. Can you provide more details?
You can change your UI based on in-app purchases, but that would require the user to make the purchase. It cannot be done proactively by your affiliate. If you want to have different versions for different affiliates from install-time you'd need to upload the different versions as separate packages to the store.
