    Dear all,


    Updated 2012-10-31:

    Old referral links:

    Simply add "?r=xxx" to any URLs and your referrals will be tracked. Here are some sample URLs that you may begin using immediately:

    Example 1: Link to our homepage:

    Example 2: Link to our popular iPod earbuds:

    Example 3: Link to our Electrical&tools category:

    You may change the SKU or Category numbers in the links above so that your visitors will go to the specific products you want, and of course, please change the "xxx" to your affiliate ID.

    New referral links:

    Simply add "xxx" to any URLs and your referrals will be tracked. Here are some sample URLs that you may begin using immediately:

    Example 1: Link to our homepage:

    Example 2: Link to our popular iPod earbuds:

    Example 3: Link to our flashlight keychains category:

    You may also get ImageADs and Text ADs, please refer to http://dx.com/affiliate.


    Should you guys have any questions while using the link, please feel free to let us know.

    Thank you for your support.

    DX Team

    I think DX must change this text in the Signup page for affiliates:
    Welcome onboard!

    Thank you for applying. Here is your affiliate ID: 10673097

    Simply add "~r.10673097" to any URLs and your referrals will be tracked. Here are some sample URLs that you may begin using immediately.

    Just change ~ by ?.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Yes, it still works for the old link. But the old referral code must be used together with the old product URL

    Available ones:


    http://www.dealextreme.com/p/mini-pig-2-leds-flashlight-white-3-lr1130-included-1138?r=123456 (available)

    Unavailable ones:


    http://www.dealextreme.com/p/mini-pig-2-leds-flashlight-white-3-lr1130-included-1138~r.123456 (unavailable)

    Epilif09, we did update referral link for the new affiliate sign-up user at the end of 2010. And actually, we replaced ~r. with ?r=

    IG's affiliate program separates from the one in DX, we will update you guys as soon as we get it done ( it takes no more than one week).

    my affiliate program stopped from 4/2/2011 of this account, and 4/5/2011 of my first account.
    my referrals continue to shop, but in my DX Reward Points Collected it does not affect. Sad. Is it because of the fact that they have registered on the old links?

    ^ No - those will not work according to tiffany (and customer reports).

    I confirm that the old links still work - I didn't change the format of the links I've been using and I still get referral points, including in the last couple of days.

    The number of referrals hasn't been great though. Does the link format make any difference at all?

    Tiffany, can we please have an explanation of how repeat referrals are treated? For example, if a customer buys after following my referral link, will I also get referral points if they follow another of my referral links a week later?

    Will I get referral points for any of their other purchases (without having followed another referral link) within a certain time?

    So if we are still using the old URL format, there is no need to change to the new referral link? Is there any harm in using the old style, or should I be switching my existing links over to the new format?
