How does the tracking system work?

We use a HTTP referrer to track your customers' bookings. Here's how it works:
Register your domain with us: e.g. https://www.MYDOMAINNAME.com
We enter this domain into our database and activate it for tracking.

Any time we receive a link from any URL within that domain (http//www.mydomainname.com/anypage.html) which contains your tracking code or CID, it will be tracked under your account.

Every 24 hours we sync up our affiliate system with our booking engine, registering all bookings which have an affiliate ID. You may log in to the affiliate system at https://www.agoda.com/partners/index.html

Our staff will delete duplicate, fake or test bookings. These won't appear in the affiliate center. If you want to make test bookings and have these tracked, you will need to make special arrangements.

All real bookings whether made with a credit card or not, will appear in the affiliate center within 24 hours.

The affiliate center will show the status of the bookings ("cancelled by customer", "fully booked", "confirmed", "departed") and whether a credit card number was received.
Once your domain is registered, you can place a link on your site to Agoda.com, click on that link and make a test booking. We can give you instructions for making a test booking so that the booking will not be identified, will be deleted, and also so that the it does not incur cancellation charges.

This means you can now place links, which should always contain your CID, from anywhere within your domain to anywhere within the Agoda domain and they will be correctly tracked.

How and when do I get paid?

The method of payment is by Direct Bank Transfer. You will be paid the month following the guest's departure from the hotel. For example, if a guest stays March 28-April 4, you would be paid in May. Commission payments are calculated on the first day of each month, with payments made by the 15th of the month with the minimum commission payment being US$200. If the amount of commission due is less than US$200 the balance will be carried forward until the minimum payout level is reached.

Does it matter what type of website I have and where it is based?

We work with a variety of sites, from small individual web pages to large commercial sites and there are no restrictions on where you are based. We welcome applicants from any country. If your site is travel-related and specifically targets hotels, then your chances of success are good.
