    Not sure if i'm asking this right or already available and i'm just missing it. When you run reports you can easily see under the Web Site column from where the sale was made. I would like an option where i get links for my newsletter and if i get a sale via the newsletter to show up in the reports as Email or Newsletter so i can easily see the effectiveness. I think some merchants have advanced options where you can add SID, i've never messed with it, don't know if this will help me with what i want and i don't think all advertisers have advanced options available.
    I just want to be able to get a link for a merchant to use in my newsletter and have it so the reports easily show a sale is via the newsletter. I think LinkShare you have the option of getting Email code so you can see if the sale came from your newsletter, which i've never tried either. Thanks

    Todd is this possible? Or would this be ok. I added a site that i never got around doing anything with and it shows in the drop down when i go to get links, i could just use that one so i can tell if i'm getting newsletter sales.

    I would just use the SID. It's real simple to use, and if you make a sale, you know what link it was. ie. sid=newsletter.

    To bad we don't know WHAT was sold.

    Either use the SID option or add new websites for your newsletter, email, etc. and generate code for each campaign. Essentially, you will be creating more PIDs.

    Use AAQ if you want help setting up either SIDs or more PIDs.
