    That's one of those deals where you have to do your own homework for each merchant, check the terms, email them etc.

    This has been an extremely vexing issue for us. All other networks we've worked have been much easier to implement deep linking.

    ShareASale is among the best - they give us a CSV of all of our merchants, with the base affiliate redirect - just add a landing page parameter and you're done! very nice.

    Linkshare... forget it... even IF the merchant has deep linking - you need to test EVERY single page you want to deep link - why? because they have different affiliate redirect links for different merchant pages. All the other networks: one deep link affiliate redirect works for all pages on the merchant's site.

    Makes managing it a major pain. We get told again and again that we are the only affiliate with problems like this.

    Login in to ShareASale,
    1 go to "Get Link/Banner"
    2 at the bottom of filter options, there's a check box for "Create Downloadable Text File:"
    3 Check it
    4 Hit Refresh report on the right hand side
    after it refreshes, there's a link to download your pipe delimitated file (CSV-ish)

    We also found that if you book mark this:
    http://www.shareasale.com/a-reportcsv-new2.cfm
    after you log in, hit that link, then there will be link to down load the file on that page.

    How easy can ShareASale be?

    CJ also has a way to get all your merchants, but it's not as useful since it won't give me an AID for the deep link. Google unfortunately doesn't have this as far as I know, but at least once you have a deep link affiliate redirect, it works for everything. Not link LinkShare which has the Russian Roulette system of deep linking.

    We also like WebGains, since we can use their webservices to get all that information, and have automated it. THAT is really easy, we have that run in the background and are always on top of our relationships.
