    Hi,

    I want to create my own data feeds for my affiliates so they don't have to pay for the CJ feed. How would I go about this, I mean what would my links need to look like and include?

    Thanks

    Sorry for multiple posts. My browser kept crashing and I didn't know it was going through.

    If I understand what you are saying its relatively easy, your links should look like this

    http://www.qksrv.net/click-xxx-yyy?url=zzz

    xxx = Affiliate id i.e. 111111
    yyy = merchant id i.e. 2222222
    zzz = Url of product i.e. http://www.foo.com/foo.htm

    http://sksrv.net/click-111111-222222...oo.com/foo.htm

    Create one of these for every product you have.

    I think the "merchant ID" is really supposed to be a LINK ID...

    In the CJ affiliate report, it doesn't just say which merchant made the sale. It says which LINK was used (typically "Product Catalog 1" in the case of feed links). So that'd be using a specific Link ID and NOT just the merchant's account ID.

    Yup its PID-AID (AID being the Ad ID or Link ID).

    Thanks for the replies! So let me see if I have this straight.

    I have a URL: mywebsite.com/page1.html

    I would create it like this:

    http://qksrv.net/click-PID-AID?url=h...com/page1.html

    PID Being my affiliates CJ ID and AID being my merchant ID

    Thanks
