I regularly use CJ's SID field in my links for tracking purposes, but up until now I haven't used the other networks a whole lot.
Does anyone know if LinkShare, Performics, and Befree support the SID field (or something else with the same purpose) in their links?

an easy fix is to use an if statement in your links
$link = SID}
$link = whatever}

Heyder, I think he means what is the tag that gets appended to the LinkShare links in order for the value to get passed into our reports.
I've also been curious about this.
For BeFree, I think it's in the 'Flex Track' area.
Also, not all merchants support the passing of these variables.

Yep, Pete's right.
Although I will need to use a solution like Heyder's for setting links to track for the right network.

Yep, Joey's right that Pete's right.
For Be Free, the parameter that you append to the url and populate with your own tracking id is called bfinfo.
Search for Flextrack in the help area in Partner Gateway.

Thanks Scott, Pete and Heyder.
And Scott, you're right about the rightness.
I figured out Performics's from their support area. They're using 'MID'. So a Performics link would look like this:
a href="http://www.cc-dt.com/link/click?lid=1234567&mid=12345> ... /a>
Anyone know how to do this with LinkShare? Seems like I've searched everything on their site, and the live help feature isnt working right for me.
