    Buy.com Deeplinks, can this be done?
    Hi,

    Having trouble in deeplinking to individual product pages on buy.com. They are on Commission Junction.

    Was in contact with a CJ Rep yesterday by PM on a UK affiliate forum and then sent him on an email explaining my problem in detail.

    Received the following reply this morning from another rep.


    It is at the advertisers discretion whether a link is able to deep link. Advertisers which allow deep-linking will provide a 'Destination URL' box in the 'Get html' box, that can be changed to the desired destination url, meaning the link will direct to the location inserted into this box.

    Please follow these steps to deep-link:

    1. Select 'Get Links' in your CJ account manager.

    2. Select 'By Relationship'

    3. Select 'View Links' next to the advertiser

    4. Select 'Get HTML' for your chosen link

    5. Change the content of the 'Destination URL' box to your desired location.

    I hope this helps, please contact me should you require further assistance.

    Sent email back this morning as this didn't really answer my question I sent on email, but havn't received a reply yet. Also tried ringing them but no answer.

    Does anyone know if I can link to a particular buy.com product. All i seem to see when following instructions above is a list of links that they have created.

    Has anyone linked to a buy.com product. Really need to get a link up quickly. Are buy.com on another network?

    Hope someone can help. To quote Pearl Jam. This is "going nowhere fast"

    Thanks

    If you wanted to link to this page:

    http://www.buy.com/retail/Product.asp?sku=202891771

    Then take this:
    HTML Code:
    http://www.**************/click-[YOUR-PID]-10391416?&URL=
    and append the Encoded original URL:

    http%3A%2F%2Fwww.buy.com%2Fretail%2FProduct.asp%3Fsku%3D202891771

    to the end of the affiliate link, like this:

    HTML Code:
    http://www.**************/click-[YOUR-PID]-10391416?&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.buy.com%2Fretail%2FProduct.asp%3Fsku%3D202891771
    Replace [YOUR-PID] with your CJ publisher ID.

    Hmm, that's not showing up right, I guess the board blocks the affiliate link.

    It can be done!!
    Hi,

    While posting this question I received a welcome email from Tiffany Pham, the Assistant Affiliate Manager to the buy.com program, with the usual stuff such as if you need any help with our program don't hesitate to contact me.....

    What great timing, so emailed her my dilemma and got an instant reply.

    If you wish to create your own link, please use the Individual Link Builder: http://www.buy.com/retail/affiliates/sitelinks.asp
    And guess what, it works a treat.

    Just want to thank Tiffany for being so prompt. Itís nice when people are very efficient and will definitely have me trying to direct sales in their direction.

    Still can't understand though, why CJ couldn't have given me this info in the first place!!

    Adrian
