Getting The NATSCode
The NATSCode is the special part of a URL that NATS uses to credit an affiliate and record statistics. The NATSCode is different for each affiliate, program, site, and adtool. To get the NATSCode, start with an affiliate's linkcode. For example:
The NATSCode is the arbitrary string that follows track/ -- MS4yLjEuNS4wLjAuMC4w in this case. The NATSCode won't always be at the end of a URL. For example:
The NATSCode doesn't include /join. The NATSCode also doesn't always follow track. For example:
In most NATS URLs, the NATSCode is easy to identify because it's the only word that doesn't resemble English.
