Tracking of shrinked links


Hi, I just posted this question on the newbie forum but maybe you can get me a quickeer answer. Can I use the service of and others to shrink the link I receive from you for a given product and be sure of getting my commision? – And if I use your tracking service, I add that code first and then shrink it all, right?

Dear Christian,

Yes, of course you can use URL shrinking services, just make sure that those services do not use any iframe redirections, so that you wouldn’t lose affiliate comissions (when iframe redirection is used, affiliate cookies cannot be placed on a customers browser). So just take your Click2Sell.EU affiliate link, shrink it on your service and delete your browsers affiliate cookies. Then enter your shrinked affiliate link and click on a payment button so you would get redirected to the checkout page. On Click2Sell.EU checkout page make sure you see your affiliate: name. If you see this name at the bottom of checkout page, your cloaked links work do fine and you will get affiliate commissions for referring people over your shrinked links.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, just let me know. I will do my best to help you.
