    Do you have to include an SID when making custom links with the advanced linking feature? What is the purpose of adding an SID (shoppers ID)?

    I tried finding the answers to these questions in the help section of my account manager, but what little info I found on shoppers ID was brief, and vague.

    You dont have to use SID.

    I use it to identify the product that created the click to the merchant, product title or SKU, or something else if I have specifically targeted.

    eg.

    "&SID=The product name or SKU"
    "&SID=My special targeted stuff"

    If at first you don't succeed, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click.

    Thanks! I guess that added feature can be a big help when making product links, as they don't tell you in the reports anymore (with CJ product links).
