The tracking process

How will you recognise clients referred by me?

Each affiliate partner has unique partnership ID. We include this in the tracking code that we assign to any marketing tool you select from our catalogue for use on your website.
When a user clicks a banner or tracking link on your site, a cookie is dropped on their computer. This tells us that the prospect was referred by you.

Can I access my performance reports?

Yes, you’ll be able to access your performance reports in your affiliate user area, after you join our programme.

How long do you track prospects for?

Once a prospect using desktop computer clicks on your Trading 212 banner or link, a cookie will be dropped in their browser. Any registration within a 30-day validation period will then be recorded unless the user clears their browser cookies. Cookies reset every time a potential client clicks on an affiliate’s `ad`.
Once a prospect using a mobile device clicks on your Trading 212 banner or link, they are taken to the App Store or Google Play, briefly redirected through an attribution provider. Their engagement with the ad is collected by the provider to be later matched with the prospect’s first opening of the Trading 212 app. We are using the industry’s standard 7 days look-back window. Once prospect’s install is matched with an ad tap, any registration with a 30-day validation period will be recorded.
