Frequently Asked Questions

Unable to See My Affiliate ID in URLs
SmartLinks in your feed redirect users to end store URL via your preferred affiliate program and with your own affiliate ID. To read more about the working of SmartLinks, please go through https://linkmydeals.com/tools/#deeplinks

SmartLinks are generated as per the affiliate program/networks' own deeplinking tool. To test this you may compare URL generated at http://myaccount.linkmydeals.com/smartLinks.php with the URL generated in affiliate network/program's deeplinking tool.

Further, it is not at all necessary or even a requirement that your affiliate ID should be present in the end store URL. Presence of your affiliate ID depends upon affiliate networks' arrangement with the store and has nothing to do with the working of LinkMyDeals.

However, you can check the redirection path of SmartLinks using free third party tools like http://wheregoes.com/. Simply copy & paste SmartLink on http://wheregoes.com/ and see the redirection path. There you will also be able to see your affiliate ID (at an appropriate stage of redirection).
