Redirect link (default)
Address all clicks to an internal AffiliationSoftware script that redirects users to the landing page. With this system the click tracking works automatically.
Identical to the Redirect link but with shorter and easier to remember URLs.
Domain / subdomain

Custom RefID (plugin)
Allows the administrator and / or the affiliates themselves to modify their own RefID with a nickname or an identifier of their choice.
Direct linking (plugin)
Allows affiliates to use links that link directly to your website, which is very useful for SEO. It requires the integration of the click tracking code on each landing page of your website.
Clean linking BETA (plugin)
