If you have an f-code, you can become an affiliate by sharing permies digital market links containing your f-code.

For example, I can append my affiliate link like this:


When I share this link, I can see in my  affiliate console the number of clicks and sales my link has earned. Neat stuff.

At the same time, I can use my f-code on richsoil links... like this:


When someone goes to this link and THEN buys a permies product, I can see that as a sale on my affiliate console. However... because richsoil doesn't sell anything directly, the affiliate console was only able show it as a sale for the actual product, but not for the richsoil link. So, there was no way for me to know how many clicks / sales I made from my richsoil link.

The good news is that we recently had an update to the forum software that provides a solution to this by utilizing the tracker stuff.  To simply put, when someone goes to my richsoil affiliate link https://richsoil.com/pdc.jsp?f=8 and/or buys a permies product through it, I can see about that in my affiliate console under the tracker stuff. Note that I did not have to create or set up a tracker. It happens all automatically:

Who wants to try this new feature?

I am displeased. You are no longer allowed to read this tiny ad:
