    Does CJ have something simillar to Linkshare's Signature?
    It's basically a way of tracking each order/transaction so that I can reward or give cash back to my visitors?


    If it does can you please refer me to it?
    Thanks :-)

    You can add ?sid=whateverUwant to the end of a CJ link, either manually or have your site do it dynamically

    See here:
    http://help.cj.com/en/lo*@))p/SmartRewards_Overview.htm

    It says:

    SmartRewards Overview
    What is the SmartRewards program?

    Commission Junction provides the capability for publishers to track where their referred actions (sales, leads, etc.) originate so that they can target and or reward their unique shoppers. This feature is made available through the implementation of the Shopper Identification, or SID tracking.
    How does the SID work?

    Publishers can add a Shopper ID (SID) to the tracking code of their advertiser links. The consumerís SID is then stored in a cookie on that consumerís browser via Commission Junctionís tracking technology. When the consumer completes a lead or sale with a Commission Junction advertiser, the SID is saved in that lead or sale transaction record. Publishers can reward their unique visitors by using Commission Junction transaction reporting to associate leads and/or sales with the consumer who conducted that transaction.
    Who can use the SmartRewards feature?

    Reward sites or Super Publishers are the most common users of the SID or SmartRewards program. However, any publisher who can dynamically generate and append the SID(s) to the tracking code of their advertiser links can utilize this feature.
    Things you should know about the SID:

    *

    Commission Junction does not generate the SID. We merely track and report on any SID's included in transaction data.

    *

    In order to utilize this functionality, a publisher Web site must dynamically generate SIDs for each visitor to their Web site and append the SID to the tracking code of their advertiser links. (The SID value may be hard-coded to the tracking code of an advertiser link, but keep in mind that it will then not uniquely identify users.)

    *

    The SID can be up to 64 characters, and may include spaces. If spaces, commas, periods or @ symbols are used in the SID, they must be URL-encoded (e.g., %20 for a space, %40 for a @, %2E for a comma).

    *

    The following characters are illegal and cannot be used in the SID: " / < > ? \ | * : ' "

    *

    Do not set the SID value to 0 (zero).

    *

    Publishers may view SID data by running a transaction report within the CJ Account Manager. Reports can be downloaded from the results page in a number of formats (CSV,Tab-Delimited, Excel, etc.).

    Also, note that a few merchants may not support SID or may put other restrictions on it. For instance, eBay only allows 30 characters and doesn't allow any characters other than numbers, letters, commas, periods, and at symbols.

    The simpler you can keep it, the better.
