You can easily organize all of your affiliate links, payouts, statistics, graphs, referrals, and creatives directly inside of the Affiliate Area and within the Dashboard.

Affiliate URLs use a cookie that tracks who the last referrer was that influenced the customer to complete the order and thus create a sale. This cookie is valid for 60-days. This tracking cookie will be added to the prospective customer’s web browser and will stay in the browser cache until either the browser cache is cleared or the time period of 60-days lapses.
The Affiliate URLs page will be the primary location where you will obtain your referral URL. Your referral URL is a very important link. You must share this link with the people that you want to refer to Divergent Aerospace in order for you to obtain credit for the sale.
If you do not share your referral URL. You will not receive a commission and credit for the sale if the referral places an order. There is no way for us to determine where the sale originated without the referral URL being utilized before the sale occurs. So please make sure that your referrals are utilizing your referral URL.
Referral Url Generator
The referral URL generator can be used to allow a prospective affiliate to “land” on a specific page. For example, if you want to refer a prospective customer to a specific page on our website, like “The Complete CFI Binder Series” so the prospective customer can look at the product you are recommending to them. You simply “generate” the URL based on the page you want them to see.
By generating a referral URL based on a specific page. You are doing two things. First, you are directing the prospective customer to the said page you want to advertise. Second, you are adding the “tracking cookie” to this URL. Now, when the prospective customer lands on this page. The cookie is added to their browser and they’ll be able to browse the page.
In the image provided below, for example, the words “cfi-binder” are highlighted. This is the area in the URL that you will create on your own depending on which page you’d like to have the perspective customer land on. If you notice, in the generated URL below, the affiliate link has been added to the URL string.
