WebPartners supports different mechanisms to track clicks and customers, and a frequent question is when is appropriate to use a campaign, a customer group or a subaffiliate account. This is a brief explanation of each.
Under an affiliates account, traffic that they send through (either through links or banners) records under a campaign id. Campaign ids are unique per affiliate, and by default, all traffic records under campaign 1.
- Campaigns are simply a way to split and report on statistics. They are not related to commission or customer groups.
- Campaign ID’s range from 1 to 65000
- Campaigns do not need to be pre-created or registered. A campaign number can dynamically be used in a link
- You can use the same campaign across multiple customer groups
