We are excited to announce that our clients can now monetize their links through tens of thousands of affiliate programs due to a brand new integration in the Geniuslink service with the top two affiliate monetization platforms available – VigLink and Skimlinks.In this article, we’ll be walking through how to find and connect your VigLink credentials to your Geniuslink account so you can start earning commissions from even more places.

Don’t have a VigLink account yet? Sign up here! 

Getting Started

Navigate to the Affiliate tab of your Geniuslink account, then select “Connect Viglink of Skimlinks” under “Affiliate Aggregators”

Select “VigLink”

To find your keys, log in to your VigLink Dashboard, then navigate to Settings -> Sites to view your available sites. If you’ve just signed up, you should only have one site on this page. 

Note: We currently don’t support aggregator affiliation for multiple sites, so if you have multiple Viglink sites listed on this page, please select the one that you want your Geniuslink traffic associated with. 

API Key

To find your API Key, click on the blue “key” icon to the right of your chosen site.

From here, copy your “API Key” value, then paste this into the corresponding field within the “Connect an Affiliate Aggregator” dialogue box in the Affiliate tab of your Geniuslink account. 

Secret Key

Just as before, copy your “Secret Key” value, then paste this into the corresponding field within the “Connect an Affiliate Aggregator” dialogue box in the Affiliate tab of your Geniuslink account. 

That’s it! Once you have all of these details pasted into Geniuslink, save your settings and you should now see Viglink appear under “Connected Aggregators”.

How does this work with directly affiliated product links? 

If you’re building affiliate links to a product that are running directly through a retailer’s affiliate program, (and that storefront is also supported by Viglink) you’ll want to ensure that the “Reaffiliate Affiliated Links” setting in Viglink is disabled.

This setting should be disabled by default, but you can verify this by navigating to Settings and ensuring “Reaffiliate Affiliated Links” is disabled.
