    How would I know if the submitted form is referred by an affiliate?

    Asked by angel42195 on January 03, 2017 at 04:42 AM

    Does not finish answering my question about affiliates.

    I want to make affiliates and be able to distinguish when someone makes a reservation if it comes from an affiliate so I can give your commission.

    Thanks.

    Best wishes for new year.

    Hello,

    In order for us to understand if the submission came from an affiliate, do you have a referrer or any concept in mind on how to make it work? I believe, the same principle provided by Welvin here from this thread should work similar for affiliates: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1020344 

    If you have another concept in mind, please let us know and we'll see if it can possibly be done.

    We'll look forward to your response.

    So basically, you will embed the form to your website and the buyers referred by your affiliates will access the page in order to process the payment. Is this correct? Then, you would like to know who are those referred by your affiliates and who are not. Correct? 

    If the above is correct, then I would suggest adding a referral box in the form and let buyers fill it with the name of your affiliate.

    You can also prepopulate the affiliate name box. Here's an example form with prepopulated data: https://form.jotform.com/70025164368958?affiliateName=Welvin

    You can advise your affiliates to affix their name like this when sharing your page link so you will automatically know it without the need of the buyers to fill the box. 

    You can make the box as read only field or hide it.

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you have questions with this method.
