Integrate affiliate tracking codes in Prestashop

Dieser Beitrag ist auch verfügbar in: German

Hi,

I’ve opened now my first online shop and quickly the question came up… how to find customer. Or who could help me with it.
Quickly I found one possible answer… affiliate marketing. It’s anyway my preferred method from all I know and for which my wallet is big enough. Everything else is not economical or just to expensive… most both.

So, I started a campaign at my favorite affiliate network. And then the big question… how to integrate the tracking code in my Presta shop system? :o
That is not so easy, because there are variables to send.

Luckily we have the internet. :) And I found the answer in a forum. Here the quote summary of PaoloPinkel:

 

1.) Add this to the init.php:

@session_start();
if(Tools::getValue('belboon')){
  $_SESSION['belboonSession'] = Tools::getValue('belboon');
}

2.) And this to the order-confirmation.php:

$smarty->assign('belboon',$order->getTotalProductsWithTaxes());
$smarty->assign('belboonSession',$_SESSION['belboonSession']);

3.) The code from Belboon has to be added into the order-confirmation.tpl. In this sniped you need to replace NETTOWARENWERT (sorry, don’t know what is written in the english version ‘Net value’?) with {$belboon}, ORDERCODE with {$id_order} and xxxx,yyyy with {$belboonSession}.

That’s it. If you have to transfer VAT then you have to reduce it from getTotalProductsWithTaxes() somehow. Else they pay to much commission.

(Quote from http://www.homepage-community.de/…)

PaoloPinkel is using the affiliate network Belboon. I use a different network. But the concept is the same. You just need to customize the variables.

Thank you to PaoloPinkel and Chris.

Best wishes
Gordon
