To get a comission, you must add Affiliate Links (Deeplinks or partner parameters). Go to Affiliate Egg -> Settings -> Deeplink Settings.

Each shop and affiliate system have its own Deeplink. In 99% cases, there are two types of Deeplink. Prefix and postfix.

Deeplink is a part of a link which added to a link of a product. In some cases, deeplink is hard to make, so you can add a link with your partner ID direct to a storefront.


Deeplink is a special mechanism that allows you to make an affiliate link from the direct product link. This allows affiliate programs to track clicks and charge you with a commission for sales.  


Majority of modules generate an affiliate link automatically when you have set your API Key. But some modules need setting Deeplink / Affiliate link, for example, the Affiliate Egg integration module.


Usually affiliate networks use two type of affiliate links. Let's see on examples.


Deeplink


http://www.pntrac.com/t/ssdefefgeggef?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bodybuilding.com%2Fstore%2Fjym%2Fpre-jym.html


This affiliate link consists of two parts. Directly deeplink of an affiliate program:

http://www.pntrac.com/t/ssdefefgeggef?url=


And the encoded product URL:  

http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bodybuilding.com%2Fstore%2Fjym%2Fpre-jym.html

The encoded URL always starts from  http%3A%2F%2F (or from https%3A%2F%2F)

Thus, your Deepllink setting should be like:


http://www.pntrac.com/t/ssdefefgeggef?url={{url_encoded}}

{{url_encoded}} will be substituted to an encoded product link.


For simplicity you can miss the part {{url_encoded}} and just point a deeplink without URL:

http://www.pntrac.com/t/ssdefefgeggef?url=


Affiliate link


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DFKC2SO/?tag=AFF_ID-20

This is an affiliate link to the product from amazon. It consists of two parts.


The product link:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DFKC2SO/?


The parameter in URL with affiliate ID:

tag=AFF_ID-20


Thus, your setting in the module should be like:

{{url}}tag=AFF_ID-20

{{url}} will be substituted to the product URL.


But we recommend you to set it missing {{url}} part:

tag=AFF_ID-20

Using this format, the parameter with affiliate ID will be always correctly added to any URL.
