AFFILIATE RESOURCES

SkyDesks has a rich API for including referral URLs on your web page. Since SkyDesks is a subscription model, there is not a typical concept of a “sale” or “conversion” as is described in the affiliate literature. Therefore, SkyDesks uses a custom implementation, which ensures that affiliates are tracked correctly.

You can send visitors to our site via the links created below. When a visitor arrives at SkyDesks, we use two methods to track conversions. The first is a cookie is stored with the affiliate ID and product ID that you wish to refer the visitor to. The second is the affiliate ID and product ID are passed directly to the backend when referring to the sign up URL. Once the affiliate ID reaches the backend code, the information is stored and the subscriber is attributed to the referring affiliate.

How tracking works
  • Cookies are stored for 90 day, so visitors can retain an affiliate cookie even if they leave the site.
  • When a user signs up, your affiliate ID is associated with the user. This means that any subsequent payments received from this customer are subject to an affiliate referral (Recurring Commissions)
  • When we receive a payment notification from PayPal that a subscriber has paid, the affiliate for the subscriber is marked as a conversion and payment is made to the affiliate.
Finding your Affiliate ID

You will need your affiliate ID in order to create custom links and use our banner advertisements below. To find your affiliate ID, you will need to log in as an affiliate. It’ll show a link that looks like this:

https://www.skydesks.com/custom?aff_id=6021

Your affiliate ID is the number after the “aff_id=” string. The affiliate ID in the example above would be 6021.

Creating Custom Affiliate Links

When you log into our affiliate program, you’ll be given a specific affiliate link to use in your marketing efforts. That will lead people to the homepage of SkyDesks.com. The link that you would get should look like the following with you affiliate ID already in place:

https://www.skydesks.com/custom?aff_id=6021

If you wish to link to another page within the site, you may do so by creating a unique tracking URL. The URL would like like the following:

https://www.skydesks.com/custom?aff_id={YOUR_ID}&redirect={RELATIVE_URL}

You will need to replace {YOUR_ID} with your affiliate ID and {RELATIVE_URL} with the URL on SkyDesks.com you wish to redirect people to. Here is an example of our affiliate link to the “Why SkyDesks?” page.

https://www.skydesks.com/custom?aff_id=6021&redirect=https://www.skydesks.com/why

This is all you will need to do to successfully track links to the various pages within the site.
