    You can change an affiliate’s identifier (example from 1 to john), here’s how: https://woocommerce.com/document/affiliate-for-woocommerce/how-to-customize-affiliate-referral-link/#section-4

    You can also change “ref” i.e. Tracking param name to anything else like “affiliate”, “bud”, “friend” etc. Here’s how: https://woocommerce.com/document/affiliate-for-woocommerce/how-to-customize-affiliate-referral-link/#section-3

    We recommend you give this a try and contact us to share your feedback.

    You can raise a new feature request(s) for other suggestions like removing “ref” from the affiliate referral URL.

    Best option is to allow modifying the “ref” portion to another identifier. We use “bud” with our current software. Allow customizing of the identifier.

    also can we remove the ?ref= as this is not wanted in an affiliate URL so my best effort was https://nutrients.co.uk/?ref=healthyhorse but it needs to be https://nutrients.co.uk/healthyhorse
