you need a reverse proxy.
apache has a built on reverse proxy support via the mod_proxy extension.
if your web server is apache, you have to enable this module.
if it is not, you need another server with apache.

assuming another server to act as proxy, you will configure it similarly to the enclosed, with reverse proxy definitions for each partner.
depending on your applications, you also may want to define ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain directives.

there is nothing, however, to stop your partner from sending the customer a link back to their own domain ar redirecting the customer to their own domain.
