    I think I saw an answer on this months ago, but I can't remember, so I'll ask the question again.

    How does one go about creating sub-affiliate links for Linkshare merchants? I seem to recall it being something as simple as subid=1 or something like that.

    I'm not able to find where the sub-affiliate site is assigned a number. With only one sub-affiliate site, I assume subid=1 would track properly. With more than one sub-affiiliate site, I'm not sure how this would work.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance...

    I believe you go to LinkShare - Your Account. There is an option to set-up a "sub-affiliate" on the left side. Once you enter the new URL and click the Add/Update, the new site will be available for you to create links - there will be a dropdown box in each of your merchants to determine which sub-site you want the link from.

    Thanks wtjpm.

    But somehow, I just don't see any dropdown box for choosing the sub-sites to link to at all?

    Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

    :confused:

    Thanks for the replies.

    When I was looking for a solution to this some time ago, I recall that there was a dropdown box. I'm not seeing one now, though.

    Did it disappear?

    Hi and welcome to ABW, Norman! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Well, I have long since added one sub-site to my account, and yet the only pulldown menus I would see on the Create Links section are the one that says "Generate Links For xxx merchant" and the useless one that has just the one entry: "LinkShare Network".

    But since they don't track clickthrus by sub-sites, I think I'll give it a miss anyways.

    Cheers,

    Yep,

    The subaffiliate report will NOT report:
    - Impression
    - Click Thru
    But it will report:
    - # of orders
    - # of Items
    - Sales
    - Commission

    Not sure if they combine the impression and click-thru w/ the main site (subsite=0)
