In this week’s Designer Tips & Tricks, we will show you how to create and track the links you share on social media and your website.
Creating Referral Links
Creating a Zazzle referral link is easy; look at the notes below for guidance.
1.) Associate ID
Your referral (or associate) ID will contain 18 digits starting with 238xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. When you are logged in to your account your referral ID can be found here: http://www.zazzle.com/my/associate/associate
2.) RF Parameter
When adding your referral ID to a Zazzle URL, you need to add “?rf=” parameter before adding the ID, e.g. “?rf=238xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”. The only exception to this rule is if the URL already contains a “?”, then add “&rf=” instead.
For example, if you your link leads to a category of products, you’ll already see a “?” in the link. Simply add “&rf” to the end of this link so it will look like this:
NidhiArt Store example for the animal category where the associate ID is 238456789012345678
3.) Store Links, Product Links, and Search Page Links
A store link is created by adding your store name and referral ID to the Zazzle home page URL.
For example, if you’re promoting NidhiArt and your associate ID is 238456789012345678, then your link would be:
A product link is created by adding referral ID to a Zazzle product link.
For example, if you’re promoting a product with “ask_me_about_having_fun_and_making_money_buttons” title, a 145277464445326825 PID, and your associate ID is 238456789012345678, then your link would be:
A search page link is created by adding your referral ID to a Zazzle search page URL.
For example, if you’re promoting the “holiday+gifts” search page and your associate ID is 238456789012345678, then your link would be:
Tracking Your Referrals
1.) Tracking code
You can add a tracking code to your links to see which links are clicked on the most and where. If you are sharing many links per day on different blogs, Facebook, and other websites, this can help you determine where the links are performing the best. Tracking Codes can be up to 100 alphanumeric characters (and _ ,) in length. For the examples below, I will be using tracking code FB12345678.
2.) TC Parameter
You will need to add a tracking code or “tc” parameter to your links. When adding your tc parameter to your Zazzle link you need to add “&tc=” before adding the tracking code, e.g. “&tc=trackingcode”.
3.) Store Links, Product Links, and Search Page Link

Now that you know how to create and track your links, you can start linking to Zazzle and earning referrals.
