How to set up tracking IDs

JVZoo allows you to add tracking IDs to the end of your links.  If you are running multiple promotions for a product, you may want to keep track of where your traffic is coming from.  By using tracking IDs, you can now track this on your own.

The tracking information is correct for vendors also. You'll just want to use VTID instead of TID. You can also use your own tracking as well. You'll just want to confirm everything is working properly before going live.

You may want to promote in many places, such as websites, the Warrior Forum, Facebook, and an email list.  Because JVZoo keeps track of clicks but not referral pages, you may want a way to tell where those clicks are coming from.  This is where your Tracking IDs (or TIDs) become invaluable.

The best way to implement tracking IDs is to use them as short (up to 24 characters long) descriptions.  TIDs can have only letters and number (no punctuation or symbols).  These IDs will then be reported back to your JVZoo listing/seller dashboard.  These numbers are only visible to you, and are not available to your sellers (or affiliates as the case may be)

After you decide on the tracking code you want to use you'll need to add it to the end of your affiliate link like this:   /?tid=trackingcodeyoucreate. Once you add this code to the end of your affiliate link JVZoo will track the link. As an example, if you are promoting a link through Twitter in the first week of your sale, you could create a TID called twitterweekone  You would then add that to the end of your affiliate link, then your affiliate link would be http://www.jvzoo.com/c/3522/3665/?tid=twitterweekone. You would then be able to see how many clicks came from the first week of your Twitter campaign.

*Tracking ids must be in lower case only.
