    Is it possible to modify a BeFree link to change the destination page by adding a "URL=" parameter? I can do this to CJ links, but can't get it to work for BeFree.

    Thanks

    Peedith,

    No, this linking structure doesn't work on BFAST links.

    This sort of deep-linking is supported on a merchant by merchant basis. Many merchants provide a build your own link link in their link area of Partner Gateway.

    Once you see the consistent format, however, don't assume that all will support it.

    Some merchants require entry through a gateway page on their site to track properly which is why deep linking may not work in all cases. (I believe this is the case for CJ as well, I'll need to check on that).

    If the merchant doesn't have a build-your-own type link visible, ask them.

    Thanks ScottJ.

    If there is one area that all the networks could improve, it is in providing a better facility for deep linking and datafeeds. I think it is kind of odd the way LS,BF and CJ all restrict access to datafeeds. SAS has it right by making them accessible to anyone through their account manager.

    End of rant.

    Thanks again
