We are incredibly excited to announce that Geniuslink now supports automatic affiliation for your B&H product links!
Don’t have a B&H affiliate account yet? Sign up here!
Navigate to the Affiliate tab of your Geniuslink account, click the “Add a program” button, then select “B&H” from the drop-down list.
Adding your KBID
The B&H Photo affiliate program will assign you a KBID Affiliate ID number when your application has been approved. You should receive notice via email once you have been approved, which will also include your ID and sign-in information.
Copy the KBID number from your email, then paste this into the Affiliate ID field in the “Connect an Affiliate Program” dialogue box in your Geniuslink account.
That’s it! Once you have your KBID number pasted into Geniuslink, click on “Connect this Program” to save the setting and you should now see B&H appear under “Connected B&H Programs”.
Note: At this time we only support one KBID number per Genius Link account. It’s not possible to set up Affiliate Overrides on a per-group basis just yet, but stay tuned in the coming months as we enable this feature for B&H as well!
Additionally, if you would like to replace your KBID, simply follow the same steps for adding a program, or select “Remove” and repeat this process.
How to test that your B&H Photo link is Affiliating
To test that your B&H Photo link is affiliating, first build a geni.us link that directs to a page for the retailer whose ID you just added. To do this, first, copy the URL of a page for that retailer directly from the page's address bar.
*Because you have added this retailer's ID to your affiliate page, you will never need to grab affiliate links from that program's affiliate dashboard.
Then, create a geni.us link with that URL by pasting that URL into the link creator on your links page.
You'll then need to install a redirect tracing service such as Link Redirect Trace. Installing a redirect tracing service is necessary because our service adds your B&H Photo IDs in the redirects between your geni.us link and the final page URL your customer lands on.
Once you have your redirect tracing tool installed, find your geni.us link and click it.
On the page you land on, access your redirect trace. Then and look for your KBID in the redirects. If you've set things up correctly, you'll see them in the same place as the highlighted sections in the image below.
If you see your KBID in the redirect, then great, you're all set! However, if not, please ensure that you've correctly added your ID to your Affiliate page and there are no typos in your ID.
