Rapid Web Site and other links

Post by Nick » Fri Jun 18, 2010 9:08 am

Just a blatant plug, if people intend to get stuff from Rapid, if you do it via this link

http://www.rapidonline.com/

Then the Lurcher rescue gets a couple of percent.

Hi Nick,

The link doesn't seem to work and it does seem to redirect with a referer or some such?

It does go via a referrer, thats how the commission gets paid, but it should just redirect to something like

The last one doesn't redirect via the commission company, so probbaly doesnt earn any dosh, but not to worry. It may be your policy's prevent the javascript from doing what it should.

Nope first one didn't work for me either.

But I know what the problem is!

There's a 'www' missing from the front of rapidonline.com

So it should be:

http://redirectingat.com/?id=2376X58000 ... 75%2348775

Maybe turn this thread into a sticky to remind us.

We sometimes use Rapid for things other than electronics. Amazon too.
Much to learn there is.
