    Merchants with URL redirects and session IDs
    There's a merchant who allows URL redirects, which are necessary because you really can't find products even though there are 1K in the database. However, there are Session IDs in the URLs - so can those be used to redirect to? Won't that interfere or not be tracked properly?

    I notice this merchant has just about zero earnings listed and I'm wondering if this is why, and if it's worth even bothering to use their merchandise. I've had no joy with them so far.

    Having session id's in the redirects doesn't sound too keen to me.

    Can't you just strip the session ID out?

    Try stripping out the session id and then hit enter in your browser. See what happens. If all goes well simply strip the id's from your affiliate links.
