XenForo AliExpress affiliate addon to get deep links for products

aliexpress affiliate addon

I have recently coded the XenForo AliExpress affiliate addon that converts regular links to appropriate AliExpress affiliate links concerning the tracking ID and API key specified in the options. XenForo aliexpress affiliate addon is coded for aliexpress affiliates and those board owners with millions of aliexpress links in their board that, if converted, can generate handsome revenue. Typically, affiliates must find a product at aliexpress, copy its link, and put it in their URL converter to get their deep link. This deep link is then posted in the forums. I have kept this process simple and less hectic. Let me show you details and a demo of the XenForo AliExpress affiliate plugin. You can jump directly to the video at the end if you don’t feel like reading texts.

XenForo Aliexpress affiliate addon details

The addon currently converts the links posted in individual XenForo Threads, Posts, Member Signatures, Conversations, and profile posts. After installation, the admin can set his API key and tracking ID that would be used to convert links. If it is not set, the normal links will not be replaced. XenForo AliExpress affiliate addon also includes 3 CRON jobs that can be triggered by the administrator to convert old Posts, Signatures, and conversations. 

This addon has been deployed and tested at three different forums for old link conversion testing. There are different types of product URLs that can be extracted from Aliexpress, for example, country-specific domains country.aliexpress.com and normal www.aliexpress.com. We are converting all such links with their API. For example, let’s see some original links and their corresponding affiliate links.
