How to create affiliate links for different products?

I can add banners for different products, but there is only one affiliate link that goes to a general page. How can I create affiliate links for each individual product, that relates to each product banner? Where can affiliates access them?

    Hi Carolyn,
    From the Affiliates->Banners section you can create as many banners as you need, where you can set your product urls.

    Antonio, I see the Banners section, and have uploaded several images. But I’m talking about a link to the landing page for each of my products. There is no place for that link. And the affiliate code that was generated goes to a main page with a listing of several products, not to the landing page that has the “buy” button for each product.

    For more clarification, I see I can alternatively set a “banner URL” but that is not the same as a landing page URL. My banners are images on WordPress site. My landing pages have separate links. And the way that the banner link is selected from my media library in WordPress does not allow for a link to be associated with the banner image.

      Hi Carolyn,
      Sorry, I was wrong with the value of the url field.
      Using the shortcode, you can add an ‘url’ param to indicate the destination, something like this:
      [affiliates_banner id="313" url="http://example.com/your-product-page"]
      Kind Regards,

    Antonio, when I adjust the shortcode, all it produces is a broken link.

    Does everyone who uses the Affiliates Pro plugin have to go to the trouble of constructing this type of special shortcode? It seems that a link to a landing page would be a given for affiliates to use, as well as a banner that corresponds to it. Is there a reason there is only a banner image but no place to list landing page URLs? We sell several online courses so we have several products and pages.

      Hi Carolyn,
      Really this could be an improvement in the banners, we will consider it for the following updates.
      Related to the broken links, how are you using the shortcode? If you want, you can send me dashboard admin access to antonio[at]itthinx[dot]com and I’ll have a look at your shortcodes.
      Kind Regards,

    Antonio, I emailed you at the address you gave me in your last comment. The email bounced as undeliverable. [edited]
