Looking for what should be a pretty straight forward/quick job for an experienced person.
I have an existing website (Joomla!cms), and an account with PayPal. I have a "website payments standard" account with PayPal, my checkout is set, my order pages all link up fine and I have completed a real transaction from my site to PayPal and all is working fine.
Setting up with ShareASale. For an affiliate to be tracked threw PayPals system, some php coding etc needs to be placed in my "thankyou" order page etc... I dont trust my skills enough to begin trying to splice this together, so am looking for someone who has specific experience in this area.
Below you will see the instructions from ShareASale for setting up the process.
In order for the [url removed, login to view] system to work, you will need to place a small piece of HTML code on the page where you want to reward your affiliates. Please read the this entire page before copying your specific code which is given at the bottom of this page.
The code given to you at the bottom of this page, should be placed in the HTML body of your “Thank You” page.
It is important that this confirmation page can not be accessed without completing a sale or a lead, and also can not be reloaded or refreshed.
Tracking Code details for PayPal Website Payments Standard
Unfortunately, integrating with PayPal Website Payments Standard is more difficult than most shopping carts. You will need to setup their Payment Data Transfer system before integrating with ShareASale. See PayPal's documentation and sample code here:
[url removed, login to view]
Unfortunately, ShareASale is unable to help in setting up the Payment Data Transfer system. If you require assistance you should contact PayPal directly.
Once you have the Payment Data Transfer system running, you can use the following tracking codes in your Auto-Return script:
[url removed, login to view]("<img src=""[url removed, login to view]; & mcGross & "&tracking=" & txToken & "&transtype=SALE&merchantID=XXXX"" width=""1"" height=""1"">") PHPecho ("<img src=\"[url removed, login to view]$amount&tracking=$tx_token&transtype=SALE&merchantID=XXXX\" width=\"1\" height=\"1\">");Where you replace XXXX with your ShareASale merchant ID number.
Please note there is currently a bug in the PayPal sample code for PHP. If you are running PHP, you will need to change the line that reads:
$amount = $keyarray['payment_gross'];
$amount = $keyarray['mc_gross'];
