    I was trying to find a way to hide my affiliate link ( i know about tinyurl etc i just dont trust them and they are also ugly as hell ) so i came up with the following idea:

    First of all this is a typical clickbank link (dont pay attention to the link just the structure of it):

    hxxp:// 8e3edlx2q8pwyasxqh0f1m7o51 . hop . clickbank . net/

    So what we have here is a long string of numbers and letters:

    8e3edlx2q8pwyasxqh0f1m7o51

    And of course:

    . hop . clickbank . net

    Now let's say that we have a site like Google.

    A simple one page site but instead of the typical search bar in the middle it is an address bar ( dont really know if you can put an address bar inside a site or something similar ).

    Now you as the affiliate present the long string of numbers and letters as a Discount Code or a Bonus Code like:

    To claim your discount, visit www . yourdomain . com ( the site where you have set up the address bar in the middle with the function to add .hop.clickbank. net after what the user enters inside the box so that the whole thing together works as a web address and when user clicks OK/GO he is transfered to the page of the affiliate offer) and add this Bonus Code:

    8e3edlx2q8pwyasxqh0f1m7o51

    I dont know if i explained myself because sometimes I cant really transfer my thoughts but i think its pretty simple what im saying..

    If there is something similar, im probably not aware of its existence so please excuse me..

    And because you might wonder why the hell do i need something like this, it is for an offline venture, so basically people get a leaflet with a supposed "Discount Code", enter the Code in the site and get transfered to the affiliate offer..

    Thanx in advance and waiting for a quick reply.. :D

    Regards
