    Hey guys !
    I am not too sure where to post my question but since I followed a guide about Amazon Affiliate in this section, I will post it here.

    So I am really new to Amazon Affiliate Program so I know almost nothing about it, well except the basics.

    So I have links redirecting to amazon with my affiliate link on my wordpress sites.
    Each person going get's the cookie that is living for 90 if I am not mistaken.

    So on my affiliate right now, it say that I have 1 Click and 10 Ordered items.
    Is the "Ordered Items" suppose to be the items that I am a getting a cut off? Because right now I don't see any price that the person pay and the cut I am going to get.

    Thank you for any help :)

    90-cookie only exists if they add the product to the cart instantly.

    Ordered items are ordered items. 1 person clicked on 1 of your ads and bought 10 items. You can see which items in the Reports -> Order reports. Once the items will get shipped, they will calculate your commission.

    Yes, those are ordered but yet to be shipped products. You'll get a commission once they get shipped.

    Alright I see, else do you know how much time the cookie stays ? :)
    And if I use a plugin from wordpress example Woozone, What is does is that people can add product to a cart on my site, and then when they are ready to checkout, they are headed to the amazon website and the items are automatically added to their cart, do you know if the cookie is created with this technic?

    Thanks for the clarification !


    Nice thank you Hekke, and you've got a nice journey, ill follow you up :) !! and good luck :D
