    Does anyone know how to pass an affiliate's ID number into the URL of the merchant's site?

    For example, a visitor would click the affiliate link:
    http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=##...D&M=MERCHANTID

    and it would take them to
    http://www.merchantsite.com?affiliate=AFFILIATEID

    Anyone know how to do this? I know that it's possible because I've seen merchants use it to help track phone orders.

    Hi Joey,
    This has to be done on the merchant side. My site is able to do that, but that was a feature I set up when joining the merchant program....It was one of the options...I just logged into control panel, and can no longer see that option, so I guess it disappears once the program is set up. You will likely have to contact share-a-sale if you want that feature....I may be completely wrong here..

    If you are an affiliate, I don't think you can do it.

    Cheers,
