How to integrate affiliate programs with Linkfire

Note: this feature is reserved for Premium users

An affiliate program is when retailers pay you a commission for generating traffic to their store. For example, if a user reaches the iTunes store through your recommendation, you will earn 7% of any purchase they make.

In order to identify your commissions, you should add a unique affiliate ID to all links leading to retailers such as iTunes or Amazon. If you enter your affiliate information in your Linkfire board settings, Linkfire will automatically make sure that any sales generated by your campaigns will contribute towards your commission payout.

Find and register your affiliate information

Before you can integrate your affiliate accounts with Linkfire, you need to locate your unique affiliate identifier. Depending on the retailer, this may be called an Affiliate Token, Tracking ID or something else.

Once you have your information, please contact your dedicated account manager to have it registered in our system. If you're unsure who to contact, drop us a line on help@linkfire.com.

Add your affiliate details to your Linkfire board

Once your affiliate details have been registered in our system, you can add them to your Linkfire boards. In order to do this, click on Settings in the top right.

On the settings page, you will find a section called Affiliate programs.

Here, you will see all affiliate programs that have been added to this board. To add an affiliate program, it must first be registered in our system (see above). To apply it to your board, start searching for it in the input field and select the one you want to apply.

Once you have added a token to the "Default" field, you will be able to add specific countries and apply other affiliate tokens to those. This is useful if you want to share affiliate commissions with your international departments depending on the nationality of the customer.

Use different affiliate programs for specific artists or campaigns

Maybe you have a certain artist for whom you need to use a different affiliate token than what you normally use. You can now add such tokens to a particular artists settings. If you do, that token will be used instead of your normal token whenever you create a campaign for that artist.

In order to do this, navigate to the artist's settings by clicking on the "Artists" tab inside Linkfire. Now hover over the artist and click on the "Settings" button. Here you can enter the affiliate details, exactly as in your board settings.

The same can be done when creating or editing a Linkfire campaign. You will be able to see and edit any affiliate details that are currently being applied by either your board settings or artist settings.
