Finding your Account Number and Affiliate Program ID
Before you can connect your Barnes and Noble account to Geniuslink, you will need to find your Publisher Website ID and AID. To do this, you will need to first generate an affiliated Barnes and Noble link from your CJ Affiliate dashboard.
This link should look something like this:
(NOTE: This url may also begin with http://www.dpbolvw.net/click- or http://www.tkqlhce.com/click- as well. Any of these formats will work!)
The first two numbers between the "click-" parameter and the "?" will be your Publisher Website ID and AID respectively (these will be separated by a hyphen).
Connecting your Barnes and Noble to Geniuslink
Once you have your Publisher Website ID and AID, navigate to the Affiliate tab in your Geniuslink dashboard, click the blue “Add a program” button, and select “Barnes and Noble” from the drop-down list. Next, paste both of these values, into the corresponding fields and select "Connect this program."
That's it! Once you have these connected and saved in your Geniuslink dashboard, we will automatically begin affiliating any Barnes and Noble links that you build!
Additionally, if you would like to replace your Barnes and Noble affiliate parameters, simply follow the same steps for adding a program, or select “Remove” and repeat this process.
Note: At this time we only support one Barnes and Noble affiliate account connection per Geniuslink account. It’s not possible to set up Affiliate Overrides on a per-group basis, but stay tuned in the coming months as we enable this feature for Barnes and Noble as well!
