Does it ever bother you when you score an affiliate sale but can’t tell what it was you sold for the seller? It irks me to death. Usually, this happens when a merchant uses a system where they can sell and manage multiple products. That’s pretty smart of them. Keep everything under one roof. Easier management.
But as an affiliate, I would really appreciate some data. I don’t care so much for customer name and email – although that is nice. Tracking affiliate sales is already difficult. As an affiliate, we do not have access to the sales thank you page so we cannot track our conversions. So the next best thing is the product name.
Actually it is kinda sad. Some of the biggest, most popular and established shopping cart systems don’t do that. Affiliate marketing is rather mature now and this is a simple thing to implement.
Thankfully, the system we use (Fantasos) does show affiliates what they sold. And sellers who are using Wahmcart can be assured affiliates can see the name of products they sold. Because everything is under one roof, it also shows affiliates their conversions.
