maff-01 is the affiliate code, so if you log into the affiliate account you should see how the affiliate would use that code.
I do. It's just a URL with their unique Affiliate code. Simple.
Why would 'maff-01' go against a product in Maian Cart? It logs against the sale if it is set.
Because one affiliate would sell a product, and another affiliate would sell a different product.
1. Visitor logs into their affiliate account for linking info. They add this to their site. Links will be to your cart installation with the affiliate code.
2. Someone then clicks the affiliate link. Maian cart recognises the affiliate click.
Here is another issue. There is no specific affiliate link to click on, when your a customer looking at a product. It's no where.
Did you log into the affiliate account to see code usage?
It only shows their unique link. https://eshop.mysite.com/?maff=maff-01
Once you realise how it works you will see how you have been over complicating things. Of course it would log for all sales.
Hard to do when it doesn't work.
You have the affiliate url set in the affiliate settings in Maian Cart? That is how it knows which url to ping.
Ok, I guess we're thinking differently. Here is a scenario, and tell me if your products will do this.
1. I am a customer, and I want to buy two products. Product #1 is sold by Affiliate #1. Product #2 is sold by Affiliate #2.
2. When I finish the sale, both Affiliates get commissions on each of their products. Each affiliate is able to see that information on their respective affiliate accounts.
Wait, are you saying that an affiliate is specific to their own eShop? If that's the case, then what I want to do, wouldn't work. Basically, I want to have one eShop, with many Affiliates.
When I finish a sale on my Cart installation, there is nothing in the affiliate database, and no commissions are getting to the affiliates.
Maybe, send me an email or PM, and you can log into the cart, admin of the cart, affiliate account, and the admin of the affiliate site, to check things out, or better yet, are the demos connected (cart and affiliate), so I can create a sale, and check the affiliate site to see if they got the commission. I did look at the admin for both demo sites, and my sites have the same information.
