    Just wondered whether there was any easy way to turn a normal link from a merchants site into an affiliate link. I have been given a datafeed, but they are not CJ format links. Is there any way to turn the links into trackable links?

    There is a way...

    I'm not very good with it, though, so you're going to want to get confirmation. This info was given to me by wonderful members of ABW when I first began posting here in February...

    Like I said, you're going to need confirmation from much more savvy folks than me.

    Good luck!

    perfectman,

    Basically its as Patrice said. I'd suggest opening it up in Excel and doing a replace on the url column of http:// and replace with http://www.qksrv.net/click-PID-AID?url=

    PID is a website PID and AID is an ad id in CJ. Browse to the advertisers product catalog within CJ, click a product and one of the fields should be Product Catalog ID - which is the ad id.

    I have been trying to make this formula work for one of the merchants, but it just wants to come back to the main page. Can you guys help me? I have a merchant that is confused about how to set up permissions to use the redirect feature on CJ, but who has given me permission to redirect.
