    Affiliate Link to a specific product?
    I just signed up with a merchant and I'd like to include some affiliate links to some of their specific products in an article I have written. The Merchant is pretty slow to respond to my request for such a link.

    Is there anyway I can cook up my own link with my affiliate # and their product #??

    Before I get nailed for not using the search feature, I swear I did and found nothing.

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a parameter (I think it's urllink= but I'm not certain and I'm using my phone now). It let's you link to any valid landing page at the merchant's site, and have the transaction track -- I suppose this might not work for some merchants with more complex systems (especially multi-network merchants).

    I have used this feature to "create my own datafeeds" from data scraped (with permission) from less-sophisticated merchants. Of course, this doesn't work if merchant products or prices change often.

    At the top of the interface under Get Links there is a link that says "Create a Custom Link to a Page"

    In the fields below, choose the information - and enter in the destination URL of the page that you want the link to end up on the Merchant's site....

    What ProWebAddict said, *but* be sure to chose the merchant from the drop down box or the tracking code will be for the first merchant and not the merchant you want.
