We are looking to put up a shopping rewards site, much like [url removed, login to view] or ebates.com. We will be doing all the web site design. We have made contact with a software company, [[url removed, login to view]] which will take the affiliates from commissionjunction and linkshare and put them into one system. Both places have rewards programs. Simply put, someone signs up for free on our website, they browse though our shopping websites, they click on one, buy something from their site and the rewards program (either [url removed, login to view] or linkshare) stores it. iTrack software from [url removed, login to view] puts all this info into one thing. Problem is we dont know how to store the peoples information when they sign up and make session and other parameters. Here is an email that was sent between us and afftrack bascially telling us what we need to do:
From what you are saying, I take it we will need to dynamically generate the SID and other parameters? Sorry about the question,
: Hello, John:
: This is a function of your business operation. Our solution simply takes your data from the data sources (the networks' databases), retrieves it, updates the transactions and passes it on to you. We can also use iTrack to help you process the data (perform commission splits). The SID rides along the way. Yes, each network can do it and calls it something different. It's an "extra" data field plain and simple. You simply tell us to retrieve that field in addition to the others and we do so.
