Affiliate link types


Which Affiliate Link should I use. the regular one or the one used at
check-out. Thanks, Ken Mikel

Hello Kenneth,

thanks for contacting us!

It depends on your promotion style.

Just understand the difference between those two links:

1) the first affiliate link will redirect your referred people to
merchant provided product’s sales-page. So if someone clicks on your
affiliate link, he/she will come to product’s sales-page.

2) the second one (with ?checkout ending) will redirect your referred
people directly to product’s checkout page (just see it yourself). If
someone clicks on such affiliate link, he/she will instantly see the
order form, so naturally you need to tell your referred people about the
product beforehand.
If you create a website for your promoted product where you put all the
information about it and persuade visitors to buy the product, then
naturally you need to use 2) type affiliate link as there is no need to
redirect your visitors to yet another product’s website.

I hope I explained those links clearly enough.
Please let me know if you have more questions or need further explanations!
