Additions:
==Default SubID versus Custom SubID==
Default SubID can be assigned for each affiliate network from Settings > Affiliate IDs. Default SubID will always be passed unless a Custom SubID is specified. When a Custom SubID is specified in the URL query string parameter the Custom SubID will be used instead of Default SubID.

==How do I check to make sure SubID is working==
To check and make sure the SubID is being passed correctly, you have to get copy the click-through link into your clipboard and paste it in a new browser window along with adding the &debug=1 extra query string parameter. So once you copy the DFF click-through link your debug link should look like this:
http://www.datafeedfile.com/dff_prdtclick.php?affid=...&prdtid=...&subid=...&debug=1
That will allow you to pause the redirect click-through process and examine the outgoing URL.
==Does all affiliate network support SubID?==
Not all affiliate network / independent affiliate program DFF has support SubID tracking. Here are the few that we know does not support SubID tracking:
1. Amazon
2. Shopzilla

To use custom SubID with XML / JSON web services, you will add the &subid parameter yourself because you will be given the click-through URL from DFF which looks like this:
dff_prdtclick.php?affid=____&prdtid=_______&subid=_____
dff_dealclick.php?affid=____&dealnum=_______&subid=_____

Additions:
==Custom SubID==
If you are creating a reward site where you need to pass a unique value into SubID according to which user has logged into your website, you need to use Custom SubID.
Using Custom SubID will force DFF to override your existing SubID value you have set from Affiliate Login > Settings > AffiliateID.
Custom SubID will be passed along the clickthrough tracking URL conforming with each affiliate networks' special URL conventions.
To use custom SubID, you simply pass in the SubID value in the DFF script parameter when calling the DFF script or tool. As you may know DFF uses many different prefixes for parameter naming.
Depending which prefix is being used, you should follow the same prefix structure for the SubID parameter. Please see the examples below:
1) If the script takes parameter name starting with 'dff_' then you should use dff_subid=_______
1) If the script takes parameter name starting with 'dffget_' then your should use dffget_subid=______
1) If the script takes parameter without prefix such as affid=____ then you can just specify subid=_____ without any prefix.
NOTE: If your SubID may contain punctuations / symbols make sure you URL encode the Custom SubID vallue first.
