X-parameters are components of URLs that are used to pass information through the checkout process, such as:
- Sources of revenue (revenue tracking)
- Customer information
- Affiliate and partner information
- Any other information you'd like to pass

How it Works
X-parameters are transmitted to the cleverbridge platform by:
- Adding them to a URL, which can also be done with the Link Generator.
- Using XML
- Manually adding them to a transaction in the Purchase viewer
There is no limit to the number of x-parameters that can be added to a transaction.
X-parameters are viewed in two ways:
- In a specific transaction in the Purchase viewer
- In reports
X-parameters can be used in conjunction with automated transaction notifications and the XML data feeds for license key generation. This functionality exports data related to the x-parameters to your back-end systems.
