I don’t have any experience with JS, so I have to ask you, guys.
First I want to say sorry for my bad written english.
I’m working as affiliate publisher in the fashion business and some of my users asked me, if I can develop a kind of ‘redirection’ to the destination site.
What I thought:
A preloader before you get onto the other site with a short notice that the user is leaving my site and getting redirected to the store. Maybe a short ‘thank you’ notice also.
Is there any script out there?
Or do I have to code it by myself?
A simple JS popup after clicking the “order”-button, in this popup I gonna write down all the information and a button with “ordering at….”
I guess this is the easiest way, but I don’t know if this is the smartest way.
Do you have any suggestion!?
Thanks a lot!January 13, 2015 at 12:54 pm #193117shaneismeParticipant
Well, not seeing any code it’s hard to say.
Of course, the best ‘redirect’ is to just make a link! If someone was asking me to do this I’d just reply that when someone is clicking on a link or a button, they know they’re going somewhere else… just let them go.January 13, 2015 at 6:18 pm #193152bfkdParticipant
you’re right and thanks for your advice.
Also thanks for the two useful threads with specific information.
Some user are irritated, because they think I’m the online-shop and not an affiliate.
Do you think it’s smarter to use fancybox for the information instead of a redirect script?
Thanks!January 13, 2015 at 6:23 pm #193153shaneismeParticipant
Hmmm… typically speaking if people are confused it’s a problem with design. I’d work on that first honestly.
But to answer you directly, I always err against using any sort of popup. Unless someone wants to view a larger image or video it’s annoying. You could do something simple like a hover tooltip instead, that might be a good compromise.
