If you cloak your affiliate URLs we need to make sure that our system will be able to access the affiliate URLs of concern. At this point we offer two different methods to do that, depending on whether you are using an in-house solution or WordPress plugin to cloak your affiliate URLs.

In-house cloaking solution

WordPress cloaking (redirect) plugin

In-house cloaking solution

If you cloak your affiliate URLs through a self made solution, you will need to make use of our API endpoints to direct your users through affiliate URLs that contain our unique click IDs.

With each click you will send us an API request with which you send us your affiliate URL. Then we will append the necessary SubID parameter with a unique ID to that URL and send it back to you as a response. You will then need to lead the user through that affiliate URL. The whole process does only take a few milliseconds, so it won’t be noticed by your users.

You can set up a fallback function that will direct the user through your original affiliate URL if you did not receive a response from us within X milliseconds. This will ensure that the users will not experience any delays.

In the following document you can find all the relevant information you need to set up your API requests, it also contains sample codes.

WordPress cloaking (redirect) plugin

If you cloak your affiliate URLs through a WordPress plugin, e.g. Pretty Links or Redirection, you will need to use our wecantrack WordPress plugin. Our plugin will automatically detect your affiliate URLs, even though they are cloaked, and place the necessary SubID parameter with our unique WCT ID.
