Buzzbassador currently provides the ability to automatically generate affiliate links for ambassadors when they join your ambassador program through our app. This happens at the same time that we automatically generate each of your ambassadors' unique referral codes. However, our affiliate link feature is still in beta, which means that the functions are a bit limited.
Instead of acting as independent trackable links, the beta affiliate links work by automatically applying the ambassador's referral code to their cart at checkout. This means that if a customer clicks an ambassador's affiliate link, they will be taken to your online store, and no matter what page or product they visit while they're there, whenever they reach checkout, the ambassador's code will be automatically applied at checkout. In order for the beta affiliate links to work and track orders correctly, the ambassador's referral code must remain applied to the order - so the customer can't remove the code. Luckily, since the code is automatically applied for them, the benefit of the affiliate link is that the ambassador doesn't have to remember to manually type in the code!
Your ambassadors will simply share their affiliate link just as they'd share their referral code. Once someone purchases with the link, you generate sales, and the ambassador generates a referral – it functions the exact same way that your ambassadors' referral codes function, but just in link form. The beta affiliate link format is simply your store URL / discount / their referral code!
For example: If your store URL is buzzbassador.com and your ambassador's referral code is buzz1, their affiliate link would be https://buzzbassador.com/discount/buzz1
Each of your active ambassadors will be able to view their unique affiliate links (along with their referral code and the program's exclusive discount code) on the dashboard of their ambassador account.
Independently-tracked affiliate links (without the need to purchase with a discount code) is not a feature we offer right now. More advanced functionalities for our affiliate link feature - which will include codeless/independent links, and the ability to customize the link format - are within our team's pipeline and will be implemented in the coming months!
