    Hey guys,

    i´m starting my first amazon affiliate site and i´m unsure about which cookie i should use. Most sites i saw use the "normal" link to the amazon product which gives us a cookie for 1 day for all purchases the visitor makes at amazon while the other option adds the product we are promoting to the card and we get the credit for it if he buys it during the next 90 days. Is there any study or can anybody recall from his experience which option is better? I guess its the 1 day cookie because almost everyone uses this option but i would love to here some opinions.

    For me the 1 day cookie works best, with the 90 day, my users have to click twice, I think that puts them off.

    There is some misunderstanding.
    There is one affiliate link. If a person clicks on a link and purchases a product, you will get the commision. Also, if someone purchases something in 24 hours, you get the commision.

    But if, the user doesn't purchase anything, just adds the product to the cart, it will remain in his cart and you will get commision for the product if he purchases it within 90 days of adding to the cart.

    Hope it helps.

    So just to confirm there is no amazon "add to cart" button or anything like that we can put on our website?

    I tried the add to cart option but it seem to be a user turn-off. Most times you'd be better off my going to the Amazon sales-page and letting THEM decide when to add something to the cart.
