    Hi,

    I just opened a merchant account with Shareasale. What I'm trying to do right now is code a page for my affiliates, where--for example--they can enter their id numbers, and get a custom HTML generated page that they can copy and paste onto their servers. I'm asking to see if you guys know what the codes in affiliate links mean. For example in http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=1234&U=12345&M=1234 , what does B=?, U=?, M=?

    I'm assuming M = merchant, but I can't figure out the other two. Thanks for your help!

    M = Merchant ID

    B = Banner ID or link ID

    U = Affiliate ID

    And even tho you didn't ask but thought I'd add -

    afftrack= The affiliate can add anything we want after the = and it will show in our reports as to what link was clicked on when a sale was made.

    urllink= used as a redirect link to link to a specific merchant page.

    I think you should first upload your product database......Share-a-sale has a page maker that can then make a page easily for your affiliates with all of your products, once your product information is uploaded.

    That is exactly what you need to do. They can also pick and choose what products they want on the page.

    Pagemaker is a friend of both parties of the affiliate equation.
    Shareasale pagemaker is a great tool.
