Referral Link and Deep Link
Referral Link (most common): A link containing your store’s domain and affiliate-specific tracking parameters that affiliates can drop onto their destination page of choice. Referral links work well for blog posts, website pages, social media profiles, site headers and footers, reviews, etc.
Deep Link (page-specific): You and your Affiliates can have the referral link to point to a specific page. Just add the path (specific page) to the end of the domain address you created when you signed up, also displayed in the Destination Page URL.
Your Affiliates can add these from Affiliate Dashboard > Create link to a specific page.
