You can preserve the history of an affiliate link whose URL you want to change by editing it directly in Affilimate instead of tracking it as a new link with the automatic import.
For tracking to continue uninterrupted, you should have already changed the link on your website itself.
After that, edit your link's URL by:
- Finding the link via search or filter
- Click the row containing the link to see the Link Overview page
- Click the Edit button to the right of the Link URL
- Change it to the new URL
- Press Update
If you've changed the link to a cloaked link, and that cloaked link now leads to a new destination, you should also update the destination URL by clicking the Refresh button.
