This is how the company knows who to pay. These are the hypertext links given to you by the affiliate program that differentiates you from generic traffic at large. Unless you send someone through an affiliate link, you don't get paid.
A unique piece of code that is generated for each affiliate for each offer. This is how a sale is tracked to you in our affiliate program and no one else. It is imperative that you do not edit these links; your sale's tracking may be compromised.
The link an affiliate uses to send a website vistor to the vendor's site. The link is encoded in some fashion, usually with the affiliate's ID number, so that he or she will be given credit if a sale results.
a piece of code residing in a graphic image or piece of text placed on an affiliate's web page that notifies the merchant that an affiliate should be credited for the customer or visitor sent to their web site.
Hypertext links which represent a relationship between a primary seller and an affiliate. There is usually, but not always, an affiliate or referral ID embedded in the URL of such a link. e.g. http://widgets.com/?productID=234&affiliate=widgetgirl is a fictitious affiliate link that might be placed on the affiliate's site (widgetgirl's site) directing traffic to the widgets.com site. Widgets.com would then pay a commission to widgetgirl based on sales resulting from that traffic. Related terms: Affiliate Site
