Howdy, I'm new here and not very tech savvy. Much appreciated if you can shed some light on this issue. Mods, if this is in the wrong subforum, my apologies and feel free to move it.
I am an affiliate of Agoda; it's a hotel site very popular in Asia.
They said if you want to make sure you will be getting credit for sales then test it by checking the source code one you reach the landing page if trying to book a hotel.
Sometimes both the OldCID with our correct 7 digit code appears AND also a CID with the correct 7 digit code.
Other times the OldCID is there but the CID (customer ID) is just-1 and not our
entire 7 digit number.
Do you think we will get credit for sales under the second scenario?
I'll give a snippet of the very long code for both scenarios but will substitute x's for our 7 digit customer iD number.
Scenario 1 where I know we'll get paid:
Scenario 2 which I'm worried about:
I really have no idea if this sort of coding is common or not for tracking affiliate sales.
It'd be much appreciated if anyone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks!
