What is a custom affiliate tracking code?
All affiliates want to track sales that they referred also in their own systems and not only in your installation of Post Affiliate Pro. Super Affiliates often sell hundreds of products, and they need the accessibility to track sales from multiple affiliate programs — in one place.
Post Affiliate Pro has an optional feature (Affiliate Sale Tracking Codes), which can be activated by the merchant in the “Features” menu. After you have activated this feature, all of your affiliates will be able to define custom sale tracking codes, which will be inserted into your “thank you” page after the sale referred by the affiliate has been processed. To prevent merchants from inserting unwanted code, each change or new tracking code has to be approved by the merchant.
How are custom affiliate tracking codes useful?
Custom affiliate tracking codes are useful more for your affiliates than for you, the affiliate program manager. Post Affiliate Pro gives you all the tools you need to stay on top of your marketing campaign. This feature allows affiliates to keep track of their campaign results with you. It is likely that some affiliates will have more partnerships with other merchants than you have affiliates working for you. In this case, affiliates who wish to stay organized can use their affiliate tracking codes to find out where and when they get successful conversions.
Warning: Affiliate tracking codes can cause damage to your thank you page. Approve them only after careful consideration of the risks involved.
