I am currently working on a store called LifeandHype.com selling high end fashion items.
I have affiliations confimed with SSENSE, STYLEBOP & Farfetch through Comission Junction and Rakuten Marketing.
How do I add their products on to my website product page with their affiliate link? Ive been trying to figure it out with little to no luck. I am not experianced with coding and am unsure exactly how to edit or change it. If someone could please help me that would be greatly appreciated. Also my website will mainly be affiliate products so is shopify the best platform to use for this idea or no?

If you're looking to set up tracking for where customers came from before purchasing on your site, I'd suggest looking into conversion tracking and in particular UTM parameters. These are trackable links that you can attach to different marketing campaigns!

Some of the options you've described sounds like you might be wanting to promote products on your shop and have other companies fulfill orders and ship products for you.

I found the Affiliate External Outlinks app helpful to do exactly what I think you are asking about. This app let's you pick a product and outlink for the customizable 'buy' button to your affiliate link. You can create the product manually with info or material in accordance with your individual affiliate agreement. You could create a collection of affiliate products or by affiliate and create shop pages accordingly.
