Single affiliate ID for all links?

I’m returning to the affiliates after all changes (from Themeforest to Impact) - I remember before when we need a link it would be something like URL-OF-THE-ITEM ?ref=username. Simple as that.

Now seems like I have to generate unique links like for each item, is it right? Or is the old ?ref=username still counting as an affiliate link?

The old affiliate links (?ref=username) were officially depreciated as of October 1 2019 - so if you have any old links they haven’t been generating referrals for you account.

Impact is easy to create links, but I do believe you are limited to a certain number (some number of thousands?). So Envato creates a link generator, which we’ve found super helpful:
