ShopBuilder storefronts were designed and coded for flexibility, to work across browsers, and to load as quickly. Some CMSs create overhead (Wordpress, we're looking at you!) Rakuten PopShops can't guarantee that the code will look perfect when interacting with the the overwhelming number of styes, themes, versions, plugins, etc that may be interfering with your code.
If you are using ShopBuilder and your shop looks broken on your site, make sure that you have clicked the "Preview" button on the upper right hand side of the page to see the shop. If it looks different than it does on your site, then it's a code conflict. We can suggest that you "view source" on your code and try to debug the problem from there.
That link is on the free plan only. No paid plans have the link. As soon as you upgrade, the link will go away.
A product (in ShopBuilder) can have several reasons for appearing "inactive". Rakuten PopShops can only work with the feeds supplied to us by the merchants - it would be against our terms to pull products in that have not been explicitly given to us to process for the affiliate channel. Here are a couple reasons you might be seeing inactive products.
The product may be marked as "backordered" or "out of stock" in the data feed. If you click your link and it goes to the correct landing page, you may always just keep the product link up and it will continue to work. Be sure and check it, however, to make sure it doesn't go to a "not found" or "out of stock" page.
Is a link on your shop not working correctly? Please refer to link troubleshooting.
Yes, you can use multiple affiliate IDs if you are Enterprise plan or above. To do so, create a "profile" of affiliate IDs from the Settings tab in your Rakuten PopShops account. You can then select which profiles to use from the "Pop it in" tab in ShopBuilder.
You can use affiliate-defined sub-ID tracking to help you manage your sales. Each network gives this "sub ID" tracking a different name, but in a nutshell it appends the text (or code) that you want to the URL. You can then run reports at the network level for that sub-ID. Here are examples of the various labels given by networks to this type of tracking:
With ShopBuilder you can either use the Preferences tab or add a line of code to your "Pop it in" code for a dynamic Sub-ID (Data Pack plans and above for dynamic sub-IDs).
This issue typically occurs when two or more Autofeed snippets are used on the same webpage. For Autofeed pagination to work please utilize only one Autofeed snippet on your webpage. If pagination is still not working then please use broader keywords for Autofeed.
