Overview

LinkShare Integration

So, you've got the best ecommerce platform, Magento, fully functioning, serving your customers and you would like to expand the market where your products are offered? 

Thinking about affiliate networks? One of the biggest? That's right, LinkShare is the one!

Typically retailers can sell up to 20-30% via LinkShare affiliate network, the only challenge is the technical integration between ecommerce platform and the affiliate network.

We've realized it is a must for Magento Community to be integrated with LinkShare and have gone through this integration way for you gradually improving the software.

As a result, we have built Magento LinkShare Integration extension which includes the following features:

  • Automated nightly export of Magento catalogue to LinkShare format;
  • Automated nightly transfer of the files to LinkShare FTP server;
  • Archiving the export files for audit purposes;
  • Reporting sales back to LinkShare whenever there is conversion / sale in your store;
  • Ability to have multi store / multi currency setup with multiple LinkShare accounts;
  • Very flexible configuration;
  • Error / export process status reporting via server logs and admin emails;
  • Performance optimization for resources consuming export processes;

Users of the extension have seen significant increases in target traffic and sales in the first 2 weeks after integration.

If you would like to see demo, please visit demo installation:

The LinkShare settings reside in Admin Area -> System -> Configuration -> LinkShare Integration (on the left in the Sales section)

The cron job that exports the products nightly can be seen in Configuration -> Scheduler -> Schedule Configuration, it is called linkshare_feed_upload

This is how catalog feed in LinkShare format from the demo site looks like: http://www.nmediasystems.com/fileadmin/content_images/services/magento/linkshare-integration/23542345_nmerchandis20120419.txt

LinkShare Integration 4 5 4 4
Quality Not Reflected by Price Base on the high cost of this module, I expected a higher quality product. Here are some of the main concerns: * The module uses hardcoded classnames for constructors instead of model and helper factories (ie. Mage::getModel('module/class')). This makes it hard to extend the module to fit your business needs. * Poor resource allocation: when the LinkShare feed is generated, a product collection is loaded and when iterated, each product within the collection is individually loaded. They're essentially loading each product twice, and for a large catalog, this is not efficient. * The Magento-LinkShare attributes mappings are hardcoded and not configurable. For example, when sending over brand in the LinkShare feed, your Magento attribute must be called 'brand'. It would be better if you could specify a mapping to suit business needs in case your attributes aren't named exactly what is set in the module. * No method documentation. This isn't a deal breaker, at this price point, you'd expect clean, well-documented source code. * Instead of using Magento's layout & blocks to insert LinkShare's order confirmation tracking pixel, you have to edit your success template. * The module doesn't account for pushing canceled orders to LinkShare, though I can't really dock them for that as it's not an advertised feature. Bottom line is that we won't be using the module even though we purchased it, but instead will be developing a custom module to overcome some of the limitations above. April 29, 2013

Works well Installed without problems on 1.6.0 Easily configured and simply works. Good job February 22, 2013
Really good extension for easy linkshare integration. Sends feed to linkshare ftp every day. Easily configurable from the admin. For extra customization you do have to modify some code in the extension files. May 21, 2012
