    How do you track users for affiliate sites??
    I know that in Comission Junction you attach ---> &sid=

    SearchCactus you attach ---> &uid=

    What do you attach on ShareaSale url's to track users on my incentive site??

    Thanks for the start
    Only just joined SAS under one of Marjorie's seven sites. Added the other six sites in the edit portion of the account.

    Then find the Help page about this subject. And I thank you for making it clearer. Seems I can type in my own moniker for each site, e.i.: TECH or MIDAGE or HOMEOWN as "&afftrack=HOMEOWN".

    Am I right? This then takes the place of a pull down for get links to modify the code so I can tell which site the click (and Sale, amen?) came from.

    Seems another incomplete(?) portion of the code is "&urllink=". Is this another modifier I could use to good purpose?

    Best to you . . . buteverde

    Are Quotes and Brackets Allowed???
    Hi,

    I'm just wondering if the following syntax is allowed, with the quotes and brackets included?

    &afftrack="my keyword phrase"

    &afftrack=[my keyword phrase]

    If yes, will the quotes and brackets be included in the SAS reporting, so I can track by Google Adwords phrase match and exact match?

    Appreciate your help!

    This can be used to link to any of the merchant's internal pages. For example &urllink=www.merchantssite.com/bigyellowballoons.html or &urllink=www.merchantssite.com/smallgreenballoons.html

    IMPORTANT! Do not use the "http://" for the deeplink URL's. Just use the the domain/filename with or without the "www.".

    Nordie,

    Your string will need to be correctly HTML formatted including the proper ASCII tags for things like spaces, quotes, etc...

    As a general suggestion, I would not included things like spaces, quotes, ampersands, commas, etc... because while they are handled most of the time by IE, other browsers that are more strict will not handle them properly and you could lose a click.
    Thanks,
