In this article, we will be walking you through how to find your CJ Affiliate parameters as well as how to connect them to your Geniuslink account to start automatically affiliating your CJ Affiliate links.
Finding your Publisher Website ID and AID
Before you can connect one of your CJ Affiliate program accounts to Geniuslink, you will need to find your Publisher Website ID, and AID. To do this, you will need to first generate an affiliated link from the store you'd be auto-affiliating 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 (PID) and Affiliate ID (AID) respectively (these will be separated by a hyphen).
Connecting your CJ Affiliate Program 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 whichever program you're trying to add 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 links that you build for this store!
Additionally, if you would like to replace your CJ Affiliate 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 CJ affiliate account connection for each store 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!
