User CP Opt Out Option?

by playagiron » Sun Aug 07, 2011 9:11 am


I recently installed Viglinks, and it works very nicely. It is probably the least intrusive way of monetizing your forum or earning the hosting expenses etc.

Even though I never had a complaint by users, I would like to provide an option in the User Control Center to disable it for users who do not want it. Is this possible to do with this mod, maybe in a future version?

Given the FTC disclosure obligation, I want to be clear about using viglinks and hence it would be nice to give this option to users who don't want it. I am sure there won't be many or even noone to care, but still giving this option would be a great way of saying that users are free to use the forum without it!

That being said, I really like viglinks so far, I only whished they would provide more info on details about the merchants, percentages etc.

Hi -- Anna here w/ VigLink. You can point users to this URL if you'd like to provide an opt out option:


In regards to merchant coverage, have you played with our Merchant Coverage tool? http://www.viglink.com/tools/coverage

While specific commission percentages aren't listed, if there is a particular merchant you'd like more detail on we are happy to provide you with that info directly, just send an email to support@viglink.com. Most of the time, you'll find that commissions are slightly higher than you would receive partnering directly with a merchant or network, because our size allows us to participate in higher payout tiers.

Hope this helps!
