‘DirectLinks’ is an advanced feature which allows affiliates to link to our sites without the need for tracking code. This is designed for websites and may not work on all social platforms.
There is detailed information in your affiliate portal on how it works and how to set it up here:
DO NOT CONFUSE Direct Linking with Dynamic or Deep linking.
These terms simply mean to link directly to a specific page within a websites rather than the Home Page.
This is achieved by using the 'Dynamic Link' button beneath each banner in your Banner Manager.
OR by simply adding your affiliate ID to the end of the landing page URL that you wish to send your visitors to.

Be sure to use your own ID which can be found in your affiliate portal under the Tracking tab. It is always a good idea to test your links and there is information on this here
