Rev-Share Fields -- New on the Order Page
In response to your feedback, we have implemented a new order page feature that records and displays Yahoo!
Network revenue share status and URL. The "Rev-Share URL" field shows the web address of the page that your
customer was visiting immediately prior to entering your Yahoo! Store (on their initial visit within the last 30 days). If the
URL of this page contains yahoo.com, but not mail.yahoo.com or store.yahoo.com, the Rev-Share
URL field will display the Yahoo! Network URL and the "Network Order" field will be marked "Yes." This "Yes" means you
will be charged a 3.5% network revenue share on this order. If the URL does not contain yahoo.com (or contains
mail.yahoo.com, store.yahoo.com, or is not available), you will see the URL of origin or "N/A" (not available) displayed in the Rev-Share
URL field. The Network Order field will read "No." In this case, the order is not subject to a 3.5% network revenue share.
Sometimes the Rev-Share URL is very long -- so we've had to
truncate it to display a maximum of 128 characters. In
most cases, the URL displayed will link you to a live web page
on Yahoo! or elsewhere on the Internet. However, in
some instances, the truncated, underlying link will no longer
work. You will have at least 128 characters with information about
your customer's point of origin.
Please note: The new Rev-Share URL will only be displayed for orders after April 16, 2002.
