In most cases, affiliate links look like this: https://your-site.com/?ref=johndoe.
If you want your affiliates to be able to change their referral code, then please refer to this article.
To prevent affiliates from changing their referral link, you can simply toggle off the Referral Codes option in your program's settings. This will result in anonymized links that consist in a string of letters and numbers.
Custom links (advanced)
There may be certain cases in which you may want to customize affiliate referral links. This may be the case if:
- You don't want affiliates to modify the referral code from their end.
- Alternatively, you want to get rid of the ?ref= part of your affiliate links and replace it with something else.
Please note that these changes are part of our advanced features, and that you'll need a developer to help implement this. Your developer can refer to this technical document for more information.
