To use the Deep Links Generator you must sign-up for an account and register your app with our system. Follow the steps below if you have not done so, otherwise you can skip to the AffiliateWebUrl section.

1. Create a user account – Click on the “Sign up” link in the top right corner to begin your sign up process
2. Apply for an API key – After you’ve signed in with your new developer account; you’ll need to register your app in order to receive an API Key from us.
a) Click on Dashboard (top right corner), then Applications
b) Click “Create a new application”, follow onscreen instructions

AffiliateWebUrl

To get the auto-generated deep links, you’ll need to pass your affiliate’s id and network’s name in the product’s details query string as outlined below and our system will returned the “AffiliateWebUrl” in the JSON’s envelope.
• Example: http://api.sierratradingpost.com/api/1.0/product/15000/?api_key=YourApiKey&aff_name=cj&aff_id=54539&aff_sid=1935
o aff_name = {CJ |LS | AL} where CJ=Commision Junction, LS=Linkshare, AL=AvantLink
o aff_id = {your affiliate ID#}
o aff_sid = {CJ-based site ID} (only used for CJ affiliates)
JSON’s returns: “AffiliateWebUrl”: http://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=Mrxtz9ppBWE&mid=2640&murl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sierratradingpost.com%2Fproduct%2Fbounce%2F15000%2F
