Associates Program

Postby kiawah » Thu Jun 17, 2010 8:48 am

A client wants to add 40 products of mine in their store. I just want to make sure I understand how the program works. If I want the user when they click on buy now in my clients store to come to the specific product and the store owner to get credit, I will have to create 40 new associates landing pages(links). Is that correct?

You would only have to have one Associate (and that Associate must have one Default Landing Page assigned), however you can adapt that Associate's URL to go to different landing pages for the different products by adding the URL of the other landing pages to the end of the Associate URL in the format:

Code: Select all
&url=http://yourdomain.com/your_other_landing_page.html


So via this modification you can have the same Associate URL go to as many different landing pages as necessary.

Does this suggestion still apply and work?

I have a prospective Associate that wants to set up individual links that would redirect from their product review site to our specific product pages. In other words we'd want each referral to land on a different product page.

I played with the above suggestion and can't get it to work.

As a test (using a working Associate and not the prospective one), the default landing page is https://www.dancesupplies.com/Rachels-Ballet-Welcome-Page.html.

Their standard link is <a href="https://www.dancesupplies.com/cgi-dancesupplies/sb/ref.cgi?storeid=*1eca21b51d0ad84878d024a7789ea4b324&name=Rachels_Ballet">
[Your link text or graphic goes here]
</a>

If I want them to instead have a link that lands at http://dancesupplies.com/Bloch-Heritage-Pointe-Shoes-S0180L.html, I tried:

https://www.dancesupplies.com/cgi-dancesupplies/sb/ref.cgi?storeid=*1eca21b51d0ad84878d024a7789ea4b324&name=Rachels_Ballet&url=http://dancesupplies.com/Bloch-Heritage-Pointe-Shoes-S0180L.html

But this takes them to the default page and not the product page.

Do I have the link wrong, or does this process no longer work?

Thanks in advance!

Should still work. What do you have set for the 'Alternate Landing Page URLs' setting for this associate. You would either have to have it set to 'Allow Alternate URL to any domain' or to 'Allow Alternate URL to only these domains' with the domain 'dancesupplies.com' (minus the quotes) in the box underneath that. If you use this last option, I would recommend putting www.dancesupplies.com in the box, too, just in case you want to use the domain with a www. when formulating the Associate URLs for the associate.

Success - thank you!

You were correct. I had the Alternate Landing Page URLs set to "Do Not Allow...", and changing that as you suggested solved the problem.

Many, many thanks!
