    ok guys my question about the affiliation program is that
    does someone actually needs to buy an item on shoptemp for you to get money in ur account or
    do you get money when someone clicks on your link and also buys someone through ur refferal link

    so what i need clarified is that do you get money if someone clicks on your reffereal link or do you only get money when someone buys something from your refferal link
    thanks

    I think it's only if someone buys something from it.

    EDIT:
    Yeah, someone has to buy something.

    ^ that's correct
    a "pay-per-click" system is inaccurate and can be abused too easily [​IMG] so you have to sell stuff.

    The've changed it, they've now added ?gbatemp to the end of all the ShopTemp links on GBAtemp which removes your affilate code.

    So what's quoted above isn't quite accurate anymore.

    apologies for posting as the last post was a while back I have a question about this too.


    Code:
    Creating an affiliate link is simple. Just select any URL that you find on our website, and append ?ref=2043. For example, the top banner links to the home page: http://shoptemp.com/. Simply append ?ref=2043 to it, and it becomes: http://shoptemp.com/?ref=2043.
    is that unique ref ID unique to me as I see others who have different ref ID's

    This part should really answer your question. You get a unique ID.
