okaty, direct link is going to work for affiliates.
there are 6 products i would like to give affiliate commission on. the other products will not be affiliate commission related.
so here is what i setup:
under common affiliate program settings i have set the common affiliate share at 0% and hop link blank
under product-specific affiliate settings, for EACH of the 6 products i set a hop link to that specific product page, i.e. hop link for product 1, on the product 2 product i have hop link for product page 2, etc.
i also set the product affiliate share for each of those 6 products at 6%.
so i have 6 different hop links because i have one for each product. the affiliate would like to only manage one hop link.
if i'm understanding the program correctly, it doesn't matter which hoplink the affiliate uses, any of those 6 that drives someone to the site, will result with the affiliate earning commission on any of the 6. i.e. if they give out hop link 1 and user goes to our site and purchases product 3, affiliate will still earn commission. is that correct?
