Your partner ID is already listed in the inserted code, and you don't need to edit it.

To ensure it works properly, do not change the code. Using links as promo material is an exception. You can change the text of the link there.

You can find more information about the links in the links to programs section.

Statistics and payouts

The statistics for each program are located in the Reports tab.

The Table contains the following data:

  • Impressions — the number of views of banners and widgets.

  • Pending — the number of completed orders.
  • Cancelled — the number of canceled orders.
  • Paid — the number of paid orders.
  • Payout — income received.
  • Poss. income — income that can be received taking into account orders that are being processed.

To view summary statistics for all programs, go to the Dashboard section in the main menu.

Payouts

Income from campaigns is credited to your account in the affiliate program and is paid along with the basic payment according to the schedule.

How long is the customer assigned to the affiliate?

The same rules apply as for searching for tickets and hotels when working with travel brands. The user is assigned to the partner up to 30 days after clicking the link with the partner ID. You can find information about cookie lifespans in each program's description.

It should be noted that if a user was assigned to one partner and follows the link of another, then they will be assigned to the second partner.
