Default Deeplink M4N doesn't work

Website URL: http://www.hardloopkledingoutlet.nl
URL to page in question: http://hardloopkledingoutlet.nl/asic...-handschoenen/

I've imported 400+ products so far in my website from different affiliate network. I only have a problem with the M4N affiliate network. I want to import product from 'PlutoSport', and it looks like everything works well except the deeplink to the website of Plutosport (example if you click on 'Koop Nu' --> http://hardloopkledingoutlet.nl/asic...-handschoenen/

How can I solve this problem?

When I test with our affiliate ID the link redirects fine.

Are you sure you're approved by the merchant?

Are you sure you're using the right M4N affiliate ID? For instructions see http://www.datafeedr.com/docs/item/198

This is my imported deeplink (deeplink I see in my Wordpress Admin):
This is the affiliate link I see in the Datafeedr admin:


If I use the link in my wordpress except the last part '&4dsid=REFERRER_ID' the link works, but maybe it doesn't count for my affiliate commission??

Is there still a problem as the buy (koop nu) link you mentioned in your first post is now working for me?

http://hardloopkledingoutlet.nl/asic...-handschoenen/

Where do you see the link with REFERRER_ID in Wordpress/Datafeedr admin?

In the Datafeedr Admin you have to fill in the affiliate ID and behind the ID 'REFERRER_ID' is the text I see from the beginning.

I just removed 'REFERRER_ID' and all links to M4N are working now. Hopefully this doesn't influence the commision for me :P

I mean where did you see the link (see below) you mentioned

http://clicks.m4n.nl/_c?aid=12419&ad...id=REFERRER_ID

Was this link available on your site?

I don't advise to remove the REFERRER_ID as you won't be able to see where your sales are coming from.

For more info about REFERRER_ID see here: /show...69&postcount=2

So can you add it back in? Then update your store by clicking update products and settings in wordpress datafeedr admin?

Then let me know so I can test your links on your site?

'Referrer_ID' is coming back automatically. I updated my website now and all deeplinks to M4N sites have this in the end of the deeplink. Again the links are not working

After taking a look to the TradeDoubler and TradeTracker links on your site I see that the variable REFERRER_ID is also displayed in these links.

Normally REFERRER_ID should always be

- replaced by a unique number per visitor (when visitor found your site via a search engine or clicked a link to your site on a 3rd party site) or

- removed (when there's no referrer - visitor typing in your URL directly in the browser for example)

In the first case when visitor clicks through to merchant and makes a sale the number assigned to that visitor is reported in the network's affiliate stats.

Then you can look up that number in the tracking section of WordPress Datafeedr admin to learn how that visitor found your site.

On your site however the variable REFERRER_ID in your affiliate links is never replaced because you're using ShopperPress.

ShopperPress has created its own Datafeedr import function and therefore bypasses parts of our functionality which includes REFERRER_ID tracking.

The reason M4N links with REFERRER_ID don't work is because it looks like M4N only accepts numbers as value for its 4dsid parameter.

The links from the other networks you're using don't have a problem with REFERRER_ID as value. That's why these links redirect properly.

Your options are...

- remove in Factory REFERRER_ID for M4N in order to fix your M4N links if you want to continue using ShopperPress as your theme

- use another theme so you can take advantage of our REFERRER_ID tracking functionality.

Conclusion: with ShopperPress - currently - you will not be able to see where your sales are coming from.

Up to you to decide how important REFERRER_ID tracking is for you.

Thanks for your reply.
I want to continue with Shopperpress so I will remove the 'REFERRER_ID' part in Factory.
