Recommendations on how to make the links to affiliate products:
- Use the main affiliate link from AliExpress WW Affiliate program in your account. The main affiliate link leads to AliExpress homepage (best.aliexpress.com), which contains only affiliate products.
- If you promote the certain products, you can check if the products are affiliated in Link Checker Tool in your Admitad account. You need to create a deeplink to the required product page and paste it to Link Checker. If the product is not affiliated, you will see the warning. Moreover, you can use our API to check the affiliation of the products. This check consists of 2 steps:
- The user checks the direct link to the product. The publisher needs to make an affiliate link from the direct link via the Deeplink generator: https://account.admitad.com/gb/developers/doc/api_en/methods/deeplink/deeplink/
- Check the affiliate link using Checking link method: https://account.admitad.com/gb/developers/doc/api_en/methods/links/links/ . If the link leads to an affiliate product, API will return the answer " Link is valid". If the link leads to a non-affiliate product, the API will return the answer " Attention! This product is non-affiliated".
- Moreover, you can use the links from Product Feeds. Product Feeds include only affiliate products.
