That hasn't been one of the most asked for enhancements but we may include it in the next major upgrade.
Thanks, Charlie Edmunds

|uShop does not have an affiliate tracking program built into it at this time, but due to uShop's flexibility, there are a couple things that can be done to integrate it with external affiliate tracking systems. Here are a couple ideas that may/may not work for you:|
1) Many affiliate programs just need the order number and total once the order is placed. You could try modifying the "show_receipt" subroutine of ushop_cgiscript to display an image on that page. The image would essentially be a link to your affiliate tracking program and with the link, you could utilize the $uShop_orderid and $uShop_total variables to pass the order number and total.
In any case, we'll see about what we can do for the next release.
