In this article, we’ll be walking through how to find and connect your affiliate parameters from AWIN to your Geniuslink account so you can start earning commissions from more great affiliate programs.
Obtaining your AWIN Affiliate ID
In order to obtain your AWIN affiliate ID and add it to the Geniuslink dashboard, you’ll need to grab your “ID” value from a properly built AWIN affiliate deep link for that store. You can do this by going to the Link Builder tool inside the AWIN dashboard and creating a deep link. Set the dropdown option next to “Advertiser” to “Joined”, and enter in the store name (eg. from The Book Depository (US). Then, click “Generate Link”. From the results, grab the value after “awinaffid=”. See the highlighted value in the screenshot below.
Once you have this AWIN ID, go to the “Affiliate” section in the Geniuslink Dashboard. Click on the blue “Add a program” button and select your store from the drop-down menu. Then, enter the AWIN affiliate ID you just grabbed.
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 AWIN affiliate parameters, simply follow the same steps for adding a program, or select “Remove” and repeat this process.
