Normally, the cross sale feature is used to sell someone else's products on your join pages. Let's call this someone else - your partner. It is practice to receive a % of the sales of your partner that originate from your join pages. To accomplish this, your partner must know if a particular sale was sent by you, and assign a payout to your account in his affiliate system. If he was using mpa3 for affiliate software, you would have to register as affiliate in his system, and send your affiliate id with each sale you send to him (each sale of his products, that originate from your join page). So when your partner sets the "Cross Sales" settings, he will set for Netbilling code: site_tag|PASS_CODE|mpa3_webmaster_id, where mpa3_webmaster_id is your affiliate id in his system. Similarly, when you set the Netbilling cross sale at your end, you will set for "Xsell referrer" this same affiliate id - so your partner can recognize it, and assign the sale to your account.

If you are cross selling your own sites, you must pick an mpa3 affiliate id (probably some inhouse affiliate), and use it in the above mentioned places.
