Not getting referrals with zazzle star
Posted: Tuesday, October 22, 2013 11:59:47 AM
Hi, I track everything through statcounter so I can see where my zazzle traffic has come from, I know for certain that I have referred a customer from my own website, who has then placed an order but referral says "none"???

I'm pretty sure that I understand what stops a referral from working, i.e migration to none-native domain, one referral not replacing another whilst the first is still in session etc.....

Here is my link:

The customer was using an apple iPad, could this effect things? You used to know that you referral was working because the zbar would kick in, but the zbar doesn't work. So now I'm thinking that my referrals are not working too.

I would really appreciate any help with this.

I read that if their computer blocks cookies you won't get a referral. Maybe others can chime in for other reasons, there are also a number of discussions threads on this topic.

It's truly not a fantastic idea to use the *.
That easily breaks links in emails, etc.

This would work better:

I put a / after the star, and I get the referrals in emails, on my website, and through Facebook. Like this:

Maybe you could try it?

We always use the rf code as it seems to be the most reliable.

I created a macro that automatically adds our code to the url. Option-A and its done. Faster than clicking through to get the Z created code with your #.

Thank you all for responding. I think I'll try sticking my ref No instead of the star and see that that helps. This always used to work before the new look website, strange.

Thanks again
