    This is a good plugin but it has one major failure, it does not work with ShareASale Advertisers.

    Hi,

    Yes, it does. I've tested it with ShareASale and it does work.

    Hi datafeed, can you please confirm what advertiser you tried it with? I have tried it with several SAS advertisers and none of them work. I have also the same problem with Linkshare advertisers. I just get errors in IE. The only networks that this plugun will work for me is CJ and Avantlink.

    Hi,

    It works fine for me. I've tested with eVitaminStore (SAS), Relax The Back (LS) with no problems.

    What error messages are you getting?

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. I have just starting working on this again as I gave up last time as it got very frustrating. I made sure to update my website to the latest woocommerce and I use the 1.3 version of your plugin which I understand is the latest. I tested the links without the plugin and they work fine. When I activate the plugin I get this error:

    There is an error in your link code.

    There is an error in your link code. Please get a new copy of the code from your account and replace the current code on your website.

    Shareasale.com manages the relationships between advertisers and affiliates, which is why you were directed to our site. Since the link that you clicked contains an error, you were not redirected to the site.

    I have tried with quite a few SAS merchants and I always get the error even on other wordpress sites when I activate your plugin.

    Are you adding the affiliate links yourself to WooCommerce?

    Is there a solution to this problem? I am still getting the same error message. The url code appears correct and works if you paste it directly into a browser.

    Please make sure when you add the link to WooCommerce that the URL is NOT URL encoded. Make sure & amp; characters are actually just & (extra space added intentionally).

    I figured out it works if I turn off the cloak affiliate links part.

    That's true. It will work if the WCCAL plugin is disabled. And it will also work if the URL is NOT URL encoded.

    Yep affiliate links for Linkshare still don't work and probably ShareAsale too. I'm surprised others have not posted how they also don't work? I import my links into wordpress with a datafeed import plugin. I wonder if there is something I need to change with the affiliate_url field? It's frustrating that this still has not been addressed after nearly a year now.
