Passing Third Party Affiliate IDs To ClickBetter
Posted by John D on 07 September 2017 01:51 PM

In order to track third party affiliate sales, ClickBetter allows you to send that affiliate ID to your ClickBetter payment link.


You can pass "affid" parameter as HTTP GET to your ClickBetter payment link.

 

So if your product ID is 12345 and third party affiliate ID is abcd then you can use the below ClickBetter payment link:

 

https://clickbetter.com/pay/12345?affid=abcd

 

where affid is the parameter which will hold the value of your third party affiliate ID.

 

If you wish to pass affiliate IDs from multiple traffic sources, you can do so by simply sending that traffic affiliate ID, that is, you need to detect the kind of traffic you have on your sales page and append the affid accordingly to your ClickBetter payment link.

 

For example, if you have 3 traffic sources namely social media, media buys and affiliat traffic then add a simple parameter to your landing page for each traffic type, that is ttype and set that as social, media and affiliate accordingly and then using that ttype assign the affid accordingly.

 

So if my landing page is this: www.salesurl.com then for:

 

1. Social traffic, it should be: www.salesurl.com/?ttype=social 

 

2. Media buy traffic, it should be: www.salesurl.com/?ttype=media 

 

3. Affiliate traffic, it should be: www.salesurl.com/?ttype=affiliate

 

and in your ClickBetter payment link, you simply add the required ID accordingly.

 

So if my landing page is in PHP (your programmer can do this for any language), I will simply check the ttype and add the affid accordingly.

 

1. Social traffic, the payment link can be this: <?php if($_GET[ttype]=="social") { ?> <a href="https://clickbetter.com/pay/12345?affid=SOCIALAFFILIATEID">Click Here To Pay</a> <?php } ?>

 

2. Media buy traffic, the payment link can be this: <?php if($_GET[ttype]=="media") { ?> <a href="https://clickbetter.com/pay/12345?affid=MEDIABUYAFFILIATEID">Click Here To Pay</a> <?php } ?>

 

3. Affiliate traffic, the payment link can be this: <?php if($_GET[ttype]=="affiliate") { ?> <a href="https://clickbetter.com/pay/12345?affid=AFFILIATETNETWORKAFFILIATEID">Click Here To Pay</a> <?php } ?>
