Obtaining your Newegg Partner ID
In order to obtain your Newegg Partner ID and add it to the Geniuslink dashboard you’ll need to grab your “Partner ID” value from a properly built Newegg affiliate link. You can do this by taking a raw Newegg link (eg. https://www.newegg.com) and going to the Deep Linking tool inside the Rakuten Marketing dashboard and creating a deep link. From the results, grab the value between “id=” and “&”. See the highlighted value in the screenshot below.
Once you have this ID, go to the “Affiliate” section in the Geniuslink Dashboard. Click on the blue “Add a program” button and select Newegg from the drop down menu. Then, enter the Partner ID you just grabbed.
That’s it! Once you have your Partner ID pasted into Geniuslink, click the blue “Connect this program” button. Your Partner ID value will be added into your Geniuslink account and all of your geni.us links for Newegg.com will start using the tracking info appropriate for your affiliate account.
Note: At this time we only support one Newegg Partner ID per Genius Link 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 Newegg as well!
If you would like to replace your Partner ID, simply follow the same steps for adding a program, or select “Remove” and repeat this process.
