We Can Track is an affiliate data tracking, processing and integration software that attributes affiliate sales data to publishers’ traffic data.
With We Can Track, affiliate publishers can finally integrate their sales data in the marketing tools they use.
Registration is free and you will be able to make use of a 30 days trial period once you connected network accounts.
By installing and enabling the We Can Track plugin, your affiliate links will automatically contain unique SubIDs that will be used to trace a sale back to the click it originated from.
Furthermore, the We Can Track plugin is compliant with most redirection (cloaking) plugins, making automatic SubID placements possible.

Not to worry, we’d be happy to help you. Just contact us at email@example.com with information about your redirection plugin and other relevant information and we’ll check for possible solutions.
