When an affiliate promotes our products and services, they use a referral URL which typically looks like this: “https://www.motorhomerepublic.com/?affiliate=businessname1”.
When a customer clicks this link and lands on our website, the affiliate’s ID (businessname1 in the example above) is stored in a cookie within the customer’s browser. If this customer makes a purchase, the relevant affiliate is awarded commission on the sale.
It doesn’t matter what kind of URL the customer starts from – it could be unsecure (http://) or secure (https://) – the tracking persists through a secure or unsecure protocol.
