  • How to shorten the Flipkart affiliate link? 


Do you have Flipkart affiliate account?  Inorder to create an affiliate link for a product displayed on flipkart, your should appened "?affid=MY_FK_AFFILIATE_ID" to the product url.



like this one:
If product URL is http://www.flipkart.com/offers

to make it an affilaite url you need to add like
http://www.flipkart.com/offers?affid=YOUR_FK_AFFILIATE_ID

Flipkart Say's:


When to append ?affid=**** or &affid=**** - As a general rule, ? is allowed to be used only once in any url. If a ? is already present in the link/url, all other parameters that follow after the ? need to be prefixed with &.

According to this if the product url already have one "?" (Question mark ) then you should add the affiliate id like the one given below:

Product url : http://www.flipkart.com/offers?otracker=nmenu_offer-zone
Making it affiliate url

 http://www.flipkart.com/offers?otracker=nmenu_offer-zone&affid=MY_FK_AFFILIATE_ID



Is it possible to hide the Flipkart affiliate ID from website visitors?
Currently it is not possible. On registering to Flipkart's affiliate or associate program, the affiliate ID is generated based on your Name or email address and it is not editable. So it would be better if you  use email addresses which may not have your personal infos on that ( For example do not use emails like FirstName.lastName@gmail.com). In the case of amazon affiliate program, they allow us to create multiple affiliate id linked to a primary affiliate account.
