    Affiliate networks that support alternate/dynamic URLs?
    Hello,
    Does any affiliate networks support redirects to any page on merchant site?
    Say instead of forcing visitors to:
    affnet/?merchant=123&aff=456 -> merchant123/buy

    Affiliate could choose to do this:
    affnet/?merchant=123&aff=456&url=/article5 -> merchant123/article5

    I finding it beneficial to let affiliates to choose destinations on merchant site dynamically and so looking for affiliate networks and self-hosted software that support this.

    That is usually referred to as "deep linking". If you search for that term on ABW, you'll find some relevant discussions.

    Here's one of the recent ones: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=115509 ... Post #5 there is the one that addresses your question.

    Ghoti, thank you very much.
    Apparently this is exactly what i was looking for and knowing the "official term" for that really helps.
