How To Build Your Affiliate Link
From your Post Affiliate Pro affiliate dashboard you will have already generated your own unique referral URL. Using the following information, you will be able to build on your basic referral link by adding offer codes, cross-device and customer lifetime tracking, campaign tracking and more.
