How to view referral source URL link?

Does anyone know how to see the URL referral source of the affiliates that are sending traffic to my website?
All I can see is the following ShareASale URL link which does tell me the affiliate user ID, but then if I look up this affiliate under my account and go to the website they have listed on ShareASale I can't find any URL links that are pointing back to my site; so I'm guessing the affiliate is using a different website.
I would like to see the exact URL page that this above ShareASale link is coming from; does anyone know if this is possible?

Depending on how the affiliates are handling their links, you might not be able to see this. If they are using redirects or cloaking tools that obscure the referring URL, you won't be able to see this. Some shoppers also use security tools that block the passing of the referring URL.
If you're suspicious of the activity, you could always ask that the affiliate make sure that any cloaking/redirecting tools that they are using are passing the referring URL. If they refuse, then you'd have a decision to make on whether you trust enough to work with them.

You can always ask the network for a referring URL report which will give you more insight into where the traffic is coming from.
