button tracking

Msg#: 4218441 posted 7:40 pm on Oct 18, 2010 (gmt 0)

hi, i'm creating a member registration that creates a new webppage for each member, on each webpage is a link to a paypal processing page and I need some way to track what webpage each link was sent from. (ie who to pay commisions to) Since i'm creating them through a template file i don't think i can use php, is there some waay to do this i'm not aware of? Or is there any javascript i might could use to accomplish this? appreciate everyone's time and thanks in advance

This is probably the wrong forum to post this on. But just to answer your question, there are few ways to get it done. The easiest way would be add an additional parameter to the Paypal link (query string) with the members id or name and let Paypal do the tracking. Check out the Advanced variables feature in Paypal, it should be listed as one of the options when you create a button.
