    Could someone please direct me to a page that explains how to use Flex Track?

    Thanks,

    Abagoo & Others,

    To use Flex Track, add the following parameter to the links you want to track.

    The parameter to use on befree is bfinfo ...

    For example, for my Data Feed Links I use: &bfinfo=PR00DF to track sales from those links.

    To track a Creative, I use the expiration date of the sale - &bfinfo=PR0115

    I use one for my Main page, and another for any other special links I want to track, even from other websites.

    While Jim summed it up nicely, there's an entire area in the Help section on Partner Gateway dedicated to Flextrack.

    Click on "Get Help" and there's a Flextrack Category right on that main page.

    Hi. This isn't on flex track but I am wondering about the
    stats reporting. I know in past, I was able to see the items
    that people bought when I checked for example (musician's friends). Now though I just see summaries... is there a way to find out what people bought? That was useful, this doesn't tell me much.

    Or am I looking in wrong place? I only directed people to
    the homepage of site. I never used anything special in my links before and don't really want to do that... Wouldn't this be a useful feature to keep so people know what to make pages for? THanks.

    reflections,

    In each merchant-specific area of Partner Gateway is more reporting. Use the droplist at the top of the screen to find the merchant-branded area for each of your merchants.

    In there is a reporting section where most merchants offer product reporting and you can see what your users are buying.
