What is Advertiser CID?

An advertiser CID is a unique form of identification that’s used to simplify communications and avoid unnecessary confusion. CID stands for company identification. As the name would suggest, a CID is assigned to advertisers and merchants who are working with affiliates.

It’s used by affiliate networks to quickly distinguish between companies. Some businesses share similar names, which could make referring to them by name a bit confusing. To prevent any miscommunication and uncertainty, advertiser CIDs are used instead.

Typically, the advertiser CID is the only way that affiliates and networks refer to the companies. If you need to contact support for any issues you may be experiencing, the network will ask for the advertiser CID so that they can pull up reports and provide you with answers to your questions. You may also see the advertiser CID in your own reports, contracts, and documents rather than their full business name.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
