Passing a $_GET variable from Wordpress page into external iFrame

I have searched throughout all of the internets to fix this issue - I am sure this can be done!
I am trying to pass a

$_GET
variable into an external page that is accessed through an
iframe
.
My website is done on
Wordpress
and I have downloaded a
plugin
to use an
iframe
so that I can show a page that contains
PHP
.
This is the way it works:

The page on
Wordpress
should have a
$_GET
parameter in its
URL

(like this: http://www.url.com/page/refer-a-friend/?source=CRM)

I need to access this
$_GET parameter
inside my
iframe
. The
iframe
src is a page I do not have on
Wordpress
but that is on my server (it's like an external link).

I feel like I have given all the information I can but if not please feel free to ask and I can elaborate. It's driving me crazy! Thanks.

Please note I am passing the iFrame through the shortcode.
[iframe src="https://www.globaleye.com/external/refer.php" width="100%" height="500"]

Answer

Edit:

[iframe src="globaleye.com/external/refer.php?YOUR_VARIABLE=true"; width="100%" height="500"]

if you used more than one variable pass so you use an advanced iframe plugin so it is good for you.

[advanced_iframe securitykey="key" url_forward_parameter="SECOND_VARIABLE" src="globaleye.com/external/refer.php?YOUR_VARIABLE=true"]
