If you're worried that people won't click on your links because of the embedded commission program ID, there are few simple ways you can hide the URL and all the gobbledygook from visitors.
You can install free click tracking software or scripts that redirect the visitor. Another option is to set the link to go to a specific page on your web site (for example yourdomain.com/offer.html) and then have that page redirect to the appropriate page with the commission program code intact. By using either of these methods you're effectively shielding the commission information until after the user has clicked.
