Using a "Click Ref" allows affiliates to add a tracking reference to a link. Any sales that occur through a link with a Click Ref will report to the affiliate account including the click reference that was used.

This gives affiliates the ability to track the sale back to the exact link the visitor used to find that advertiser, allowing optimisation of which promotional methods on their sites work best to convert visitors into customers.
