    I have a direct sales MLM gig. ((Tried to add fake url to show the general long url structure here)) Who is going to type all of that? So, I bought a domain name and forwarded it directly to my rep sign up page. No masking, just forwarding.

    I am getting messages that the "add to cart" link to complete the free rep process doesn't work.

    Is there a way for the company to stop the checkout process if the referral comes in from a different url??

    Yes, some payment processors use referer checking and do not display the order form if the clicks come from not approved domain

    Thank you for your response. I read that I can use my tld and refer to the long affiliate link with php seemlessly. Could they prevent the checkout through that? If so, how can I set it up??

    Also, if it is reported, can they still stop it if the link is being referred this way?

    yes with php you can fake the referer, just google it

    yes, there's always risk of shutting you down for doing that as it is against their rules - not only you send traffic from other domains than the approved, but also trying to fake it..
