Login to your iCodes account... 'Configure Feed' > 'My Merchants' ... select all merchants as 'Not Joined' 'Configure Feed' > 'Relationship' .. select 'Skimlinks'
Merchants you set as 'Not Joined' will use 'non affiliate links' (these will then be converted by Skimlinks) Merchants you set as 'Joined' will use the ID's you enter in 'My Affiliate IDs' Merchants you set as 'Rejected' will not be included.
The Benefits of Using Skimlinks
In order to earn commission online you are usually required to sign up to the affiliate networks and apply to join the merchants within those networks, this can be a massive job to undertake from scratch. However there is a solution available named Skimlinks if you do not have the time to do this. (please contact Skimlinks if you have any questions regarding that service)
How Does Skimlinks Work
In the iCodes feed the merchants url is a homepage link only, and so all codes and offers promoted without the provided affiliate link will only take the visitor to the merchants homepage, in most cases this is adequate for codes, but offers generally require a deeplink to take the visitor directly to the target page within the merchants site.
Although a seperate deeplink field is included in the feeds it's usually only an ID (depending on the network), or blank if it's a homepage link, and such deeplinks would not generate the url required unless used within a built affiliate link.
Important: The use of Skimlinks with iCodes is only allowed with paid subscriptions, any user using Skimlinks with the 50/50 clickshare subscriptions will have their accounts deleted.
