    Adding Parameters to Affiliate Links
    Does anyone know how an affiliate could add trackable parameters to their CJ generated links?

    thank you

    On CJ, add the SID parameter.

    They have hundreds to create and would need the data to be stored somewhere.

    Can they set up that many in the Smart Zone? Maybe not hundreds but it sounds like a large amount.

    It's an affiliate-defined parameter, and I think it can be up to 64 alphanumeric characters (plus some special characters), so there's tremendous flexibility. It doesn't have to be set up in CJ, just added to the links.

    so if it's not added in CJ, will CJ affiliate reporting still show this data accurately? Thanks Michael

    Yes, it gets passed to CJ on clicks and they report the SID on any resulting sales.
