Default Affiliate ID in URLs

I may have missed this being asked or documented somewhere else, but when I click on one of my affiliate links I'm not seeing my affiliate ID in the url displayed when the actual store webpage opens all I'm see is

/?referid=affwin&utm_source=affiliate-window&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_campaign=

That URL is being generated by the affiliate network. When you click on one of your links, you will be redirected to the affiliate network's site with your affiliate ID in the URL. Then, the affiliate network will record that referral, generate the URL for the merchant's site and then redirect to the merchant's site. That query string that you posted is being generated by the affiliate network after your affiliate ID has been recorded. As long as you are using the right affiliate ID, you should be fine.
