Thanks. It is because a single affiliate network does not have a relationship with all the merchants. Also, it happens that some affiliate network has commission rates better over another network.

Also, can you please let us know that if the cashback functionality that you are developing will have features like the following website? For example, the possibility to update cashback per category per store, show these rates on the store page, user dashboard which will show statuses of pending/completed cashback, allowing withdrawal of cashback to back account etc.

I don't think that it's good idea to use several networks for cashback. it will create possible bugs and many incompatibilities. 

Currently, keywordrush team is working to make automatic tracking for Admitad and for AWIN as I know.

Thanks. Hope you also consider the second part regarding parameter name SUBID.

It uses login name, not user name. Login name is unique and can't be
changed by user

Hi Team,

In the recent update, you guys added functionality to pass username as subid.

But what if there are multiple users with the same first name and/or last name. How we will be able to distinguish the users?

Is it possible to pass UserID instead of Username? To identify users from user Ids we can use plugins like 'Reveal Ids' (that will show user ID in WP users admin panel). This will also help in later in your further development of cashback module.

Another point is most of the publishers (affiliates) works with more than one affiliate networks. Some networks use the parameter as "SUBID=" (e.g. Admitad), some other use parameter such as  "ULD=" (e.g. Optimise) or "aff_sub" (e.g. vcommission). How are you planning to handle this?

One solution I think of is most of the affiliate networks allow maximum 5 subids to pass in url parameter. So if an option is provided in theme to configure 5 subids and pass user id in all 5 subids. It should solve the issue. 


Thanks & regards
