Query var name: enter the name of the query var used to store the referral tokens in the URL. Default to “ref”.
A typical referral URL is http://sitename/?ref=2, where “ref” is the var name: you can change to any text you like, and it will be changed in all your affiliates’ referral URLs.

The affiliate can find this token in the Affiliate Dashboard > Link generator tab:

Cookie options

Cookies options
