NEW TOOL ANNOUNCEMENT!

storefronts & social affiliates BY BRIAN LITTLETON,

SHAREASALE FOUNDER & CEO

T

here are a number of different individual segments that make up Affiliate Marketing. Segments could include Content Affiliates, Coupon Affiliates, Storefront and Social Affiliates...plus many others.

ShareASale has built a new tool to focus on the last segment - Storefront and Social Affiliates. These are Affiliates who may not even know they are Affiliates – and certainly don’t have the expertise in Affiliate Marketing to really become (or want to become) either Content Affiliates or Coupon Affiliates. I’m talking about individuals, sometimes groups such as a Little League Baseball Team, or a local PTA, or even your condo or homeowners association. They are all looking to raise funds for their cause, charity, fundraising drive, or whatever other campaign they have going at the time. How to reach this powerful long-tail group? Setup a ShareASale Storefront. This allows those individuals to setup fundraising sites in a matter of minutes – with no technical expertise required. Take a look at the next page for more details and contact your ShareASale Team to help get this powerful feature setup in your account.

building blocks &

the affiliate api BY RYAN FREY,

SHAREASALE TECH LEAD

M

any Affiliates could benefit from the ShareASale API’s powerful tools. The API can answer a number of different questions, the most popular being: Who are your best Merchants?

do they have any coupons/deals expiring soon?

do they have new seasonal banners?

do you have any invalid links that should be fixed?

You can use the API to have all that information delivered auto-magically! Since it’s naturally technical, let’s go through the steps to using an API request.

Pick what task you’d like to perform on ShareASale. Do you need a report of your daily stats in real-time? Try out the Today’s Stats report. For a broader view, the Monthly Summary will reveal your highest grossing commissions among Merchants in a period. Are you looking to find Merchants who have products based on a certain keyword? The Merchant Search by Product API is perfect for the job. Finally, if a big holiday is coming up you could grab all the new banners without having to ever login with the Merchant Creatives API request.

All API requests are basically a URL – you might be familiar with something similar when navigating the web. - RYAN FREY


All API requests are basically a URL – you might be familiar with something similar when navigating the web. When you type in the URL ‘www.facebook. com’ you’re requesting information from Facebook. For the ShareASale Affiliate API your URL is ‘https://shareasale.com/x.cfm’ instead. However, with an API request instead of the browser receiving a web page for a human, it’s a script receiving data for a computer. Let’s first create the URL: Start with: https://shareasale.com/x.cfm All requests must contain: • ?affiliateID= your Affiliate ID number • &token= unique alphanumeric token received when account is set up for API use. Check your settings for yours. • &action= one of the supported actions (dailyActivity, monthlySummary, etc. from step 1 above) • &version= currently 1.7

Working through a Today’s Stats transaction API request, we have the following so far: https://shareasale.com/x.cfm?affiliateId=YourAffiliateID&token=abcDE1& action=dailyActivity&version=1.7 Hold on! You can include more than just those API parameters. A Today’s Stats API request also can include these: • &sortcol= the column you would like the data returned ordered, default on commissions • &sortdir= ASC for ascending, DESC for descending sort direction • &XMLFormat=0 for delimited, 1 for XML format data To pull Today’s Stats in XML format sorted by hits descendingly, here’s what we’d create: https://shareasale.com/x.cfm?affiliateId=YourAffiliateID&token=abcDE1&action =dailyActivity&version=1.7&sortcol=hits&sortdir=desc&XMLFormat=1

ShareASale’s API also requires you prove you really are the correct Affiliate. You wouldn’t want just anyone to be able to retrieve your commission info or determine your best converting Merchants! So, every request requires authentication. You can set only certain IP addresses to gain access, and/or send a special encoded authentication string with your request depending on the API version. This is a bit technical, so read more on our Affiliate API settings page (Tools >> Affiliate API) including sample code to get you started. Once the authentication is setup, no more work is necessary.
