How To Activate an Alternate Affiliate Link Structure (When Valid Affiliate Links Lead to 404 Not Found)

In rare cases, some server hosts can’t process the default affiliate links (/~access/) properly. Switching to the alternate structure will avoid the issue.

(The host processing issue is revealed when a valid, live affiliate link leads to a 404 Not Found page.

To resolve this issue, we recommend activating the alternate link structure.

To activate the alternate link structure, go to: AccessAlly > General Settings > Payment > Affiliate

Scroll down to the bottom of the settings area to find Affiliate Link Structure (Advanced).

Then, click on the dropdown to select the Alternative link structure option.

Once selected, click “Save Changes” before exiting the page.
