Can affiliates be set up for specific items? can the rate be different for each item?

Hello Mark,

Thanks for the question. Affiliates generally use a code to refer to the SITE. So, setting up specific rates for products would not be possible. You may want to look at OpenCart Extensions that allow you to relate discounts with affiliate recommended links. This way you can create affiliate-specific discounts. Unfortunately, this extension is NOT free,but it may provide you a way to distinguish the affiliate's recommendation from someone who simply logs into your store directly.

Hope that helps!

Already, I went ahead and added the asyncd code in there and refreshed the cache. Its reflecting the change now. Let me know if this will trigger the crawlers now :)
