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 Account Number, and Affiliate Program ID. To do this, you will need to first grab an affiliated link from your Barnes and Noble Affiliate dashboard. 

This link should look something like this:
http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-123456-987654?sid=jr16an5ere02sr1m02ly2&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbarnesandnoble.com

The first two numbers between the "click-" parameter and the "?" will be your Account Number and Affiliate Program ID respectively (these will be separated by a hyphen).

Connecting your Barnes and Noble to Geniuslink

Once you have your Account number and Affiliate Program ID, 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!
