How can we monetize our sites using affiliate marketing when the invision software is blocking our affiliate codes from running?
Please help and thanks in advance
Well that was the thing, the adverts were not shoing on the front of the site.
But we have worked it out and will let you know as this might catch out other members moving from HTTP to HTTPS
Amazon link code for their widgets is set to use http.
This is the issue the remote amazon script didn't use https only http and here all that goes on http is blocked
In our files the request should be issued with https on the url not http to resolve this , the amazon side is ok they usually have working urls on http and https , but the requesting url here must be written with https otherwise it will not pass
So I have manually edited the widget code to https and it has worked
I've just reactivated my Amazon Affilliate ads on 184.108.40.206 now that I'm using https and they are not showing up for me either.
The code supplied doesn't specify http or https, it just uses the double slash format which I believe is meant to work whatever the site is using.
amzn_assoc_ad_type = "banner";
amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon";
amzn_assoc_region = "US";
amzn_assoc_placement = "assoc_banner_placement_default";
amzn_assoc_campaigns = "audible";
amzn_assoc_banner_type = "category";
amzn_assoc_isresponsive = "true";
amzn_assoc_banner_id = "inserttrackingidhere";
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "millenniumdes-20";
amzn_assoc_linkid = "c0396d4cbacb07db3a532184451b449f";
Has anyone else had this problem? They don't supply a https specific code, it's just meant to work on either.
