    Question how to make shopping carts accept affiliate links?
    Hello,


    I need some help with shopping carts

    I use shareasale to make money (not made any yet though ) but i use affiliate links, like some one on my site clicks buy now and they are redirected to my affiliate link to the sales page... I used html page till now, and with that it was easy. but im having trouble implementing that in shopping carts

    do you have any idea, how i can make it so that when someone clicks buy or add to cart.. they check out via the cart but via my affiliate link...

    This would be a great help.

    Thx a lot in advance.

    Your affiliate links should be sending shoppers to the merchant's site to buy, not to a shopping cart on your site. If shoppers buy from you, how will you fill the order? How will you get a commission? You can't sell things you don't own, there are so many reasons not to, and no reason to try.

    You can put your site in the Site Review section if you want specific information on improving your site.

    You might want to check out the WebMerge forum and the Datafeed forums for information on how to display datafeeds, and implement them well. You can also look at PopShops.

    You need to have something on your site besides just replicating what the merchant has. If you are just a clone, what value are you bringing?
