 Using Affiliate Defined Tracking
Solution You can use the afftrack= portion of your link code to include affiliate defined tracking strings. Enter your tracking variable immediately after the afftrack= portion of your link code. This tracking variable will be echoed back to you in the Activity Details Report (https://www.shareasale.com/a-accountactivity.cfm). The tracking string must be alphanumeric, and can not contain any spaces or special characters. There is a 255 character limit. If you are using the "Shortest Code Available", Email Links or Product Links, you may need to add the afftrack= wording to your link code.

A sample link would look like this:

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=70&U=XXXX&M=47

Where the XXXX is replaced with your Affiliate ID number.

You can add the afftrack= parameter to this code along with your tracking string. The tracking string must be alphanumeric, and can not contain any spaces or special characters. If your tracking string is "123ABC", then your new link would look like this:

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=70&U=XXXX&M=47&afftrack=123ABC

The afftrack= parameter may already be in your link - be sure to use the existing one and not to add an additional one.

Keywords: sub ID, subid, afftrack
