How To Build A Link To ANY Chinavasion Web Page

Manual link building is easy, and you can link to any Chinavasion page to collect commissions on your referrals.

Simply add the following to the end of any URL: ?ref=5540

IMPORTANT: "5540" is NOT YOUR affiliate ID – it is just used on this page as an example.

Check your affiliate dashboard to see your ID number

Advanced Notes

  • Links without a channel ID will be tracked as clickthroughs on your default channel.
  • If you want to add a channel ID for a manual link, make a widget, note the channel ID number for your chosen channel, and insert it into the URL as &channel_id=2788 e.g.
  • You don’t need to worry about the trailing slash / in the URL, just keep the normal Chinavasion URL as it is and add on your ?ref=5540 – however you should not yourself add a trailing slash at the end of your affiliate link e.g. … would be wrong.
  • You can also link to Chinavasion’s subdomains, or in the same way described above and your cookie will be set. (You cannot currently set a cookie by linking to
  • To link to this area of the site, to encourage other people to become Affiliates "under" you (1% lifetime commissions) please use (change to your ID there) – That page is actually a duplicate of our main page but for system reasons if you link directly to the page content doesn’t show correctly, although the cookie still would set successfully.
  • Links which you built prior to October 2008 using the older “banner maker” etc will still work fine.

  4. I am so proud that CHINAVASION is already an affiliate in my website. I am also thinking to do more, if possible, like promoting CHINAVASION with other websites; like google; msn,etc.; or any other way of promotions (your suggestions will be appreciated)
    As for my co-operation with you, I do have a problem with my Paypal account, I cannot receive payment through paypal, as Saudi Arabia is not included to their commercial programme regions. In this connection, we do need to exchange idea as how to find the easiest way to get payment passed from you easily and safely.
