Saving commission with no additional parameters passed

It will save commission with no other parameters. Makes sense only for fixed (not percentage) commissions. Also, you have to enable "saving commission for zero total cost".

<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="http://my.goaff.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var sale = PostAffTracker.createSale();
PostAffTracker.register();
</script>
Saving per action commission

It will save per action commission with code 'signup'.

<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="http://my.goaff.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var signup = PostAffTracker.createAction('signup');
signup.setOrderID('ORD_12345XYZ');
signup.setProductID('Product1');
PostAffTracker.register();
</script>
Saving multiple commissions with one call

You can use this code if you want to save commissions separately for different items in your shopping cart.

<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="http://my.goaff.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var sale = PostAffTracker.createSale();

<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="http://my.goaff.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript">

Displaying value of the cookie and affiliate

You can use this functionality to get the ID of affiliate who referred your customer, and then use it in your own script. Note that this is callback function, and getting the value is delayed 1 second. It is because the JavaScript code has to get the cookie also from the Flash object.

<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="http://my.goaff.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
PostAffTracker.writeCookieToCustomField('id_field');
PostAffTracker.writeAffiliateToCustomField('id_field');
PostAffTracker.writeCookieToLink('id_field', 'papCookie');
PostAffTracker.writeAffiliateToLink('id_field', 'a_aid');
</script>
Full cookie:
Affiliate ID:
Link with added cookie info: see destination url of this link
Link with added affiliate id: see destination url of this link
