As I discuss/promote products that are sold via different affiliate platforms with different systems, it depends on each individual affiliate platform How to check whether you are using my affiliate link?
The good part… all platforms use a Checkout Page to order your products. (You know the page that’s opened after you click on a buy button on the sales page, and where you have to enter some of your details). It’s on this checkout page (not on the sales page) where you can test if you are using my affiliate ID (or the one from someone else).
In general, if you don’t see my affiliate ID, clear your cookies and click on my affiliate link again.
(If this isn’t working, you are probably using an Ad Blocker, like Privacy Badger, that “clears” cookies. Hence, before checking out, disable the blocker temporarily.)
Below the different ways for each platform to test whether you’ll use my affiliate ID:
For purchases via the JVZoo platform, my affiliate ID is 60631. On every checkout page (below the payment button), you can check whether you see my name and affiliate ID as in the example image below:
Note: the payment button text can be different as f.e. “Continue to Payment”)
Also, some vendors still use JVZoo’s “old” checkout page style, where the text about the referred affiliate is mentioned under the Terms of Services, as in this example…
What if you don’t see my name and affiliate ID 60631?
Just add this string at the end of the JVZoo checkout page: ?aid=60631 and refresh your page once or twice until you see my name George Eeken (and affiliate ID 60631) as in the example.
After you have purchased a product via JVZoo, you can access it via your Purchase Portal. Just click on the green button “View Details” and you’ll see all “Your Purchase Details” including info about the affiliate who got “the credits” for this purchase. See the example below:
For purchases via the Zaxaa plafform, check out if you’ll see my affiliate ID next at the bottom of the checkout page as in this example:
For purchases via the PayDotCom plafform, check out if you’ll see my affiliate ID 9d73be28 in the middle of the Purchase Terms as specific section on the checkout page as in this example:
For purchases via PayKickStart, check out if you’ll see #aid=3094 at the end in the URL of the checkout page, like this example:
or in case of a coupon code inside the URL, the URL looks like this:
https://app.paykickstart.com/checkout/854?cc=40offblack#aid=3094 (where 40offblack is the used coupon code).
What to do if you won’t see the string #aid=3094 or another aid at the end of the checkout page URL?
In that case, you just add the proper string #aid=3094 to the checkout page URL (or replace the current aid number into 3094) and refresh the page.
Please, do check whether you still see the proper #aid=3094 at the end of the checkout URL after the refresh.
Note: sometimes you have to refresh the page more than once to overrule an existing cookie!
For purchases via the ThriveCart plafform, check out if you’ll see Affiliate: next at the bottom of the checkout page as in this example:
For purchases via the Clickbank platform, check out if you’ll see [ affiliate = nextc ] at the bottom of the checkout page as in this example:
For purchases via the WarriorPlus platform or SamCart, there is no way to check if you’ll use my affiliate link. So the best thing to do is refresh your cookies and then click on my affiliate link.
If in doubt, send an email to [email protected] and I will send you a direct link to the checkout page with my affiliate link.
