AffiliatesFind Endpoint


Sometimes you just need to find an affiliate to do something unique with it.  This end point allows you to find a specific affiliate in your store.


The following pre-requisites will be necessary to accomplish the goals of this article:

  • General understanding of REST and API’s
  • Understanding of C# and/or JavaScript
  • Visual Studio 2012 or newer

Getting Started

You should already have a project open and ready to accept code to allow you to use this REST API end point.  You should also have one or more affiliates created so that you can successfully find one.


This REST API end point allows you to find an affiliate in your store. 

Example URL

This is what the REST end point will look like if you are calling it using JavaScript.  See our REST API URL documentation for more information.[ID]

ID is the primary identifier of the affiliate as described in the parameters below.

HTTP Method



Parameter Description
ID This is the unique ID of the affiliate that you wish to find


If successful, this end point will return a populated AffiliateDTO object in JSON format.  Otherwise, you should have one or more errors returned.  

Example Code

The following code will allow you to successfully call this end point, provided that you have enabled it.
