    The second cookie will override the first cookie.

    Yes, as mentioned above you will still get the revenue. In fact, you get revenue for anything they buy within the timeframe. As for the other question, you're really splitting hairs there. Your best bet would be to ask Amazon - or read through the TOS and see if it's covered.

    But worrying about details like this is insignificant in the big picture. If you can drive a steady stream of traffic you will make money in spite of what happens in the small percentage of time you may lose a cookie.
