Hello Howard (or anyone else)

We are starting an affiliate program and need to add some code to the thank you page. There is a couple of things we need that I don't know. Below is from the affiate website.

In addition, order-amount-here in the per sale code needs to be replaced with the sale amount and order-id-here needs to be replaced with the order number (although the latter is not required). This is how the sale amount is passed to our system for tracking and crediting the affiliate.

What variable hosts and displays the total order amount on the thank you page?

What variable hosts and displays the Order ID variable on the thank you page?

I take it you mean you have joined an affiliate network, and you need to put the sales code in shopthanks.asp??

ifso we have done this:

somwhere about line 93'is after:

DisplayOrderNumber myconn ' Display the order number
sql = "select * from orders where orderid=" & clng(ordernumber)
Set rsorder = myconn.Execute(SQL)
affiliateid=rsorder("oaffid") ' get affilaite

you can add your code

obviously this will change from network to network, an example here:

<script language="javascript"
<script language="javascript">

merchantID = 235
payoutCodes = ""
offlineCode = ""

orderValue = <%response.write rsorder("orderamount")%>
orderRef = <%response.write rsorder("orderid")%>

AFProcessSaleV2(merchantID, orderValue, orderRef, payoutCodes, offlineCode)


NOTE: it is important to close, and reopen the asp tags

I think the 'Affiliate Program' refered to in the first post, is an outside affiliate managment company, NOT using the inbuilt vpasp affiliate tracking

in this case you sign up with an affiliate management company in you country, add the tracking code to the site, then the affiliate company sends you visitors you pay the managment company, they pay the affiliates, this is a way to get many more affiliates and is easier to manage that this inbuilt system

No. No.. What this guy is asking is for the sale amount VARIABLE. He has an Affiliate Program on his server to track his sales commissions. Inorder for the sales commission to be calculated he needs to tell his CODE what the Order Amount variable is so it can calculate the commission. He puts his Affiliate Tracking code on his confirmation page and it passes the ORder Amount variable to his commission calculating page so it will enter it in his database. I am trying to do the same thing so if any one knows the Order Amount Variable used in VPASP please let me know. I think it is [orderamount] but that has not been working for me.
