How is the correct affiliate ID detected?

We require you to configure your Publisher/affiliate tracking software so that any parameters you want to track get passed to the landing page in the query string. Our number display script must be present on the landing page.

As an example, in LinkTrust you would add &afid=[=AFID=]&sid=[=SID=] to the end of the Landing Page URL in the campaign setup.

Param sniffing

Configuring how an affiliate ID and sub ID are detected.

If you want to detect the afid and sid parameters, and have them map to affiliate_id and sub_id in Retreaver, simply configure the URL parameter sniffing settings on your campaign as seen above.
