    Smile Question about LinkShare URL's
    I have an interesting problem and hope somebody here can help me out.

    I have a site that lets people post their Christmas list online and for each item, they can add a url if they find the item online. So far so good.

    Now the hard part.

    Let's say someone enters a url to a merchant that I am an affiliate with. The url that gets entered won't identify me; it will be straight to the merchant. So I'm trying to figure out how to the determine the "equivalent" linkshare url that will send the person to the same item on the same site.

    Are ya with me?

    So far, all I can tell is my linkshare id is the "id" parameter but what's the "offerid" parameter and the "sub" and "type" parameter

    Anybody out there know?

    Thanks

    Don't know that but this might be perfect for you:

    They have a forum here:

    Where it'll turn a straight link to a merchant, into your affiliate link on the fly.

    Are you talking about the thread "FREE Affiliate Tool, The Bounce Firefox Extension. Create Product Links Instantly!" by Michael Nunez ?

    Yep, there's that thread and the link I posted is to their forum, so if you needed any help with it, I'm sure they would be happy to help out. I still need to look at that for my forum. That's one option. Other people might be able to help you out with the other way you were posting about.
