I had a couple of potential affiliates balk at having to go through the process of generating links on the e-junkie site. Is there a way for me to generate links for them and provide them with ready to use HTML?
I can ask them to register on the site but it seems having to step through the menus and options is more than some are willing to do.

One has to wonder how successful affiliates would be at online marketing if they can't even be bothered to click through a few links to get ready-made link codes to copy and paste. You may want to refer them to our help page for affiliates:
That said, they do at least have to click your sign-up link and register for an E-junkie login, so we can track their referrals and commission earnings in our system. This help page explains how to resolve one common frustration that can happen with this, depending on their browser settings:
Once they have registered for E-junkie and joined your program, if they refuse to copy-paste the ready-made link codes we provide for them in Affiliate Admin, our Common Hop Link URLs do at least follow this standard format, where the XXXXXX is the merchant's E-junkie client ID (yours is 134840) and YYYYYY is the affiliate's ID (which they can find in their Affiliate Admin):
Product-specific Hop Links and Direct Links can't be determined like this as readily, since they reference the product's Item ID in our database, which is a fixed ID that differs from your Item Numbers, so any affiliate links issued for a product would still work if you change its Item Number in Seller Admin. If you want to issue these types of links, affiliates really should get them from their Affiliate Admin; however, you could join your own affiliate program and examine your own link codes to get the proper Item ID value to replace ZZZZZZ in this product-specific hop link example:
Joining your own affiliate program may be a good idea anyway, so you can see what your affiliates will see when they join and guide them accordingly. You won't need to register a new account when you click your sign-up link to join; your existing E-junkie login will work fine for this. You can use the Sellers and Affiliates tabs at the top of our site to pick which Admin you want to see at any moment.
