Hello Ben,

When you add an affiliate, the script gives you a URL afterwards. When your affiliates link to your store, they have to use that URL to get credit for anything a visitor buys. Are your affiliates doing this?

If the affiliate tracking number is successfully appearing on the email receipt and on the Order Reader page... but not in the affiliate log, then usually the problem is that the "ustorekeeper-affiliates.log" file which is located in your "data" directory does not have "WRITE" permissions. So FTP to your server and verify that your "ustorekeeper-affiliates.log" file has "WRITE" permission. If necessary, try giving it chmod 666 permissions.

I took a look at your site again and noticed that you are only offering the "Contact Me" payment option. Since that payment option is only to "Contact" the customer... and is not actually a confirmation of a sale... the "Contact Me" payment option does not update the "ustorekeeper-affiliates.log" file. This is by design.

If you want the "Contact Me" payment option to write the affiliate referral to the affiliate log (even though a "Contact Me" order is not necessarily an order)... then here are some steps on how to modify the script:

STEP 1: Make a backup of your current "ustorekeeper.pl" script... just in case.

STEP 2: Open you "ustorekeeper.pl" script with any text editor such as Word Pad.

STEP 3: Do a search on:

sub contact_order

... in order to locate the subroutine that handles "Contact Me" orders.

STEP 4: About 15 lines into that subroutine... and directly BEFORE the line:

$payment_line = "Contact Requestn";

... add the following line:

&write_affiliate_data($customer_id, $tracking_number);

STEP 5: Save the file (as TEXT if your editor asks)... and try it out!

So please please can you help me.

So you after adding the line:

&write_affiliate_data($customer_id, $tracking_number);

...you got a "Server Error"?

1) What was the exact error message?

2) And did you get the error only when pressing the "Contact Me" button... or did the script not run at all?

I will check at the office on Monday for the script that you sent...and see if I can spot the problem for you.
