Reseller_id in redirect from affiliate banner or link

We have released a small but useful tweak to the affiliate functionality.

When a potential buyer clicks on a banner or a link on reseller’s website and gets redirected to the nominated website page we now also pass on the “reseller_id” parameter so it is easier for the merchants to distinguish the resellers from whom the buyers are coming from.

Example:

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=9804000000000100:9804000000924398&websitenr=60678

results in a redirect to

http://www.verotel.com/?reseller_id=9804000000924398

This behavior applies to all affiliate URL options:

Using banner

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=<banner_id>:<reseller_id>

Example:

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=32084:9804000000924398

Using Banner and specifying landing page

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=<banner_id>:<reseller_id>&URL=<landing_page_url>

Example:

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=32084:9804000000924398&URL=http://www.verotel.com/price-and-comparison-chart

Without banner

It is also possible to create an affiliate url without adding any banners

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=<merchant_id>:<reseller_id>&websitenr=<website_id>

Example:

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=9804000000000100:9804000000924398&websitenr=60678

Without banner specifying landing page

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=<merchant_id>:<reseller_id>&websitenr=<website_id>&URL=<landing_page_url>

Example:

http://links.verotel.com/cgi-bin/showsite.verotel?vercode=9804000000000100:9804000000924398&websitenr=60678&URL=http://www.verotel.com/price-and-comparison-chart

    • If the webmaster of the website configured banners for the website which is meant to be resold, you can find the banners in your reseller’s ControlCenter>Resold Websites section (provided you have registered as a reseller for that website).
