Default Affiliate link not in product url - goes to 404

I am completely new to datafeedr.

I've set up a store according to the documentation. It's showing, products are there, etc.
but when I click a product link I get a -

404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

I've been in contact with Commission Factory. They pointed out that the affiliate id is missing from the urls. This is the case for all products. should be between //

I added the affiliate id - yes I saved it and yes I updated the settings and products. Why isn't it showing? How can I check my affiliate ids as I can't find anywhere in the factory to do this.

Searching forum and going through documentation at the moment but haven't found a solution yet.

Store ID: 42965

Website URL:

Issue is with all products and all merchants

Would appreciate any advice on what I'm missing. Thank you

Welcome to the forums!

I checked your store's affiliate ID settings and I don't see any affiliate ID for Commission Factory. Can you add that here: The Factory > Your Store > Store menu > Affiliate IDs & Tracking Parameters.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the quick reply. I have done that several times and can't understand why it's not saving. It's got me baffled.

Will try again - 3rd time lucky.
... and it worked.

The only thing I did different is I scrolled down and found Commission Factory. The first 2 times I dropped down the box and selected it.

Your image really helped clue me in. Thank you Eric.
