Questions and answers about Click2Sell: Selling, Affiliates, Payments, Tracking, Reports

Setting affiliate cookies


Hi there, I’ve recently launched my Twitter tool. I’m thinking about using affiliate marketing via you guys as I like the package, but I have one question: My website only allows people to buy a subscription once they’ve signed up for a proper user account. This is for a variety reasons, and right now it’s working. However, I’m concerned for my potential affiliates, as there’s no way for them to link to this sales page as it’s a protected members area. In an ideal world, I’d like to direct affiliates to my homepage and set a cookie there, either with an image or with a snippet or javascript. Is anything like this possible? Many thanks, Tom.

Dear Thomas,

Thank you for contacting us. I’m glad to hear that you are considering to use Click2Sell.EU system to sell your product. I understand your point regarding affiliate tracking… I would like to know… As far as I understand, you will put the payment buttons on your website’s inner page (after the customer signs up for an account) and that page is a protected area. What you want is to be able to direct affiliate traffic to your main sales page, then customer should signup and only after the successful signup they would be able to pay? That’s not a problem. Simply set your product’s sales page as your main website’s page and all affiliates will direct traffic there. Place Click2Sell.EU payment buttons on your inner (protected page). All affiliates will be credited for referring customers to your website if those customers order your product. It doesn’t really matter where the payment button is located. The more important is to make sure that customer would reach a payment button. Our affiliate cookie tracking technology places the cookie on a visitors computer and we can track his/her activity on all your website. If that customer reaches the payment button (even if it is after the special registration) – you can be sure that affiliate will be credited.
So you shouldn’t worry about this. Simply signup and add your product to Click2Sell.EU system. Then place the payment buttons on an appropriate area and start recruiting affiliates. I hope this clarifies the situation for you. If you have any other questions or just need some help, please, let me know. I will do my best to help you.
