    How often do I get paid?

    We understand that to have and maintain a top-notch website you require some financial support. That’s why TradeTracker will pay out your commission up to 4 times a month. It’s even possible to apply for our Super Fast Payment solution, which will make commissions payable within hours of a transactions approval.
    As an affiliate you are in full control of your payments and you may change your payout frequency whenever you like accordingly.
    When you have set your payouts monthly your payment notice is generated on the 1st of each month.
    Twice a month
    Setting your payout to twice a month will render a payment notice on the 7th and 21st of each month.
    Four times a month
    Selecting a payout frequency of four times a month means that your payment notices will be generated on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th of each month.
    If needed, you can place pause payouts by enabling the “On-hold” option. You may also increase the minimum payout amount to throttle transfers.
    Payments will be made shortly after payment notices are generated and can either be conveniently done by PayPal or a wired transfer.

Simply navigate to Account -> My sites and click the “Add new site” link. You may then choose the additional territory you want to apply your site.

    Do I have the possibility to customise my tracking?

    Yes you do! Aside from our advanced technologies in registering conversions, we have additional customisable functions available for you to configure. For example, you are able to attach a unique reference (or subid) to your link or provide a call-back location from within the interface so that conversions will be forwarded to your own statistics server. It’s even possible on request to place a third party tracking tag.

    Do you have an API available?

    Yes we do! The application programming interface (API or Web Service) allows you to access functions and information available within the software by providing programmatic access to the data in your account. Some basic API features include: retrieving account information, campaign information, transaction information, product feed data, payment information, promotion material or a combination of these things in generating advanced custom reports or allowing you to hook-up your own statistics software amongst other things.
    Our web services are based on the SOAP protocol. This protocol is a specification for exchanging structured information through Web Services. Access to our API can easily be requested from within your account.
