===How to create proper Target URL?===
there is no definitive way to generate a custom Linkshare target URL. Because the placeholder merchantid can sometime be used for merchantid or certain offer. Linkshare does support Custom Link or URL format, however we have been warned that NOT all merchant support Custom Linking since this is a feature merchant have to pay for. A sure way to make sure your Linkshare target URL will work is to obtain the URL from your merchandiser generated by Linkshare Merchandiser department or by creating a text/graphic link from your Merchant Administration panel.
**Commission Junction (CJ)**
CJ is tracking URL need to have an AdvertisementID (AID) and URL. The Advertisement ID can be obtained from the merchant's data feed in the product URL column. The URL is the actual destination URL at the merchant's web site where the destination web page should be.
**Link Connector (LC)**

**Linkshare (LS) **
**Commission Junction (CJ) **
Commission Junction uses different domain names for their tracking URL. Here are a list of 5 we have recorded so far (there may be more):
Commission Junction tracking URL domains:
http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-
http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-
http://www.dpbolvw.net/click-
http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-
http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-
Commission Junction tracking URL format:
http://www.~~~CJdomain~~~.com/click-~~~CJAffiliatePID~~~-~~~CJAdvertisementID~~~?url=~~~merchant_website_url~~~
CJ is tracking URL need to have an AdvertisementID (AID) and URL. The Advertisement ID can be obtained from the merchant's data feed file in the product URL column. The URL is the actual destination URL at the merchant's web site where the destination web page should be.
**ShareASale (SAS)**
ShareASale use very simple single letter query string variables to control their tracking link. The SAS format is:
http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=10845&u=~~~SASAffiliateID~~~&m=~~~SASMerchantID~~~&urllink=~~~merchant_website_url~~~
**Link Connector (LC)***
Link Connector tracking URL is complicated because they tried to use a combined value for the affiliate ID + link type + merchant ID.
Here is the syntax for Link Connector click-through link:
http://www.linkconnector.com/traffic_affiliate.php?lc=~~~LC~~~&atid=~~~SUBID~~~&pid=~~~MerchantProductID~~~&mtid=~~~merchantID~~~&url=~~merchant_website_url~~~
lc=8 digits total = (first 6 is affiliateID) (2nd 6 is type usually 000003) (3rd 6 is merchant_id)
atid=____ is the sub id for affiliate sub id tracking
pid=____ is the merchant sku / product id
mtid=____ is the mid / merchant id
url=____ is the merchant web site target URL
**Google Affiliate Network / Performics**
The best way to generate PF tracking link is to use the merchant's data feed product URL column values because it is very complicated.
The basic syntax is:
http://clickserve.cc-dt.com/link/ddiprod?lid=~~~LID~~~&pid=~~~PID~~~&pubid=~~~PUBID~~~
lid= link ID obtained from merchant's product data feed product URL column
pid= product ID / merchant SKU obtained from merchant's product data feed product URL column
pubid = publisher's ID / affiliate ID given from performics (should be 17 digits starting with 2100...)
**Other Affiliate Network**
There are many affiliate networks DFF supports and several independent ones. If you need more information or have a suggestion please contact DFF using this contact form: http://www.datafeedfile.com/contact_data_feed_file.php

First you need to know which Affiliate Network the merchant you are trying to create the URL for is using at DFF. Since DFF supports a merchant to exists in multiple affiliate network, you must decide which network you are creating target URL for.
Once you know which affiliate network, you need to familiarize yourself with the syntax (format) of the affiliate network's trackable / tracking URL. A good clue of what this tracking URL looks like may be found in the merchant's product data feed file under the Product URL / Target URL column.

http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=2URpmDXhqIw&offerid=.1&type=10&tmpid=2129&RD_PARM1=

there is no definitive way to generate a custom Linkshare target URL. Because the placeholder merchantid can sometime be used for merchantid or certain offer. Linkshare does support Custom Link or URL format, however we have been warned that NOT all merchant support Custom Linking since this is a feature merchant have to pay for.
