    Does LS have CID type field like CJ
    Does anyone know if Linkshare has a free form character field that affiliates can use similar to CJ's CID field? Thanks.

    Replace the "subid=#" with "&u1=???"

    Instead of ??? put whatever you want there that will help you identify the site.

    For example, if you site is called gizmos, you could put &u1=gizmos

    Wasn't this referring to webservices?
    Dholland,

    I think your question was misinterpreted if you're referring to the webservices of both programs.

    Michelle -
    CID is CJ's Merchant ID#, the answer you provided was correct if DHolland had been asking about "SID", but subid need not be replaced, but &u1 appended.

    DHolland - Are you having any luck with Linkshare's webservices? (Link Locator Direct)

    Sorry for the confusion everyone. I did mean SID and not CID. Thank you ~Michelle and bouffoc for the replys.

    bouffoc - I haven't tried LS webservices yet (maybe this weekend). I've been battling CJ 'snew webservices with little success. It's inconsistent at best.

    Info about the signature prog
    LinkShare’s Sub Affiliate Tracking & Reporting Mechanism
    On January 31, 2006, LinkShare will be phasing out our Sub Affiliate tracking and reporting mechanism used by some of our affiliate partners. Sub Affiliates are created in the LinkShare interface by accessing the Sub Affiliates section of Your Account.

    We have determined that this Sub Affiliate feature is largely redundant to our Signature (also known as u1) product. Signature offers our affiliates the same ability to track affiliate referrals based upon their source, but Signature offers this capability in a more flexible and scalable manner.

    If you presently use our Sub Affiliate tracking and reporting feature, we ask that you follow these steps to submit a request to be enabled for our Signature technology:
    --Access the Affiliate Resource Center found in the upper right hand corner of your Home Page
    --Select the LinkShare Signature Technology link in the Products & Services section
    --Review the LinkShare Signature Overview
    --Submit the Signature Request form to signature@linkshare.com

    Please note, as of January 31st the reporting interface will no longer support Sub Affiliate reporting. If you currently rely upon this tracking capability, it’s important that you convert to Signature by the January 31, 2006 deadline.
    .
