How does CheapTickets know what purchases came from my site?

When you implement the links taken from the CheapTickets Affiliate interface, you are using unique code that provides information to us on how many purchases are made on CheapTickets.com that were referred from your site. It is highly recommended that you check code for accuracy to ensure accurate credit can be given.

Yes, you can track sales activity through www.linkshare.com. This tool is available 24/7. All you need is your LinkShare® password that was emailed to you when you joined the program.
