Shopping carts and payment systems

What is Shopping Cart Integration?

Integration is a way to connect the affiliate system to your current website, shopping cart, or payment gateway, so that the affiliate system is notified when purchases are made. When notified, the affiliate system registers the sale, finds the referring affiliate (if any,) and credits the affiliate with the appropriate commission. 

Integration usually means adding only a few lines of code into your pages. Everything you need to do for integration is described in detail in the online documentation (knowledgebase) and Integration Wizard inside the application.

You can find a description of all integration methods here.
