    Where do I find just the image URL with affiliate link?
    I'm creating a custom box to put images in on my website and I would like them to be clickable with the affiliate links. Unfortunately, when I go to the merchant page on CJ and try to copy and paste the entire HTML code the code itself messes with my custom box. I was wondering where I can find the image URL with the affiliate link.

    There is a section that says image url but all it is, is the-merchants-website.com/image-number.jpg - thats not my affiliate ID is it?

    For example, amazon links are really easy to link to because its just amazon.com/the-product/your-affiliate-id but i'm having trouble figuring out which link is my affiliate link within the CJ code.

    Your CJ affiliate link will be the URL that contains the word click.

    You will need to link the image manually...

    If you need specific product images you can either use the datafeed (if provided) or use the image from the merchant site. We add product images usually 125x125 as banners for affiliates. Try contacting the affiliate manager and request those or ask for permission to use the image url from the site.

    What is merchant doesn't allow downloading images and hosting them yourself?

    I have heard that using on your site hotlinked from merchant sites is bad for SEO, and that hosting images youself is better.

    The affiliate links contains merchant id and your product id as well so it is complex. It is better just copy it from your account manager.

    Ask them!

    Then you would need their permission as well.
