I would really appreciate the views of members about this issue. With some things I have been experiencing lately concerning clickbank, some things are not really clear about their cookies. Which affiliate really gets commission for referring a buyer? Is it the affiliate who first introduced the product to the buyer? Is it the last affiliate to refer the buyer to the product? I have experienced 2 different scenerios that bring about the confusion to me. I will explain them thus: 1. FIRST AFFILIATE GETS THE COMMISSION? I have some products listed on the clickbank marketplace and as a vendor I also promote my products as an affiliate. I have received emails from 2 buyers who complained that they could not get commission for buying my product with their own affiliate links. This was one of the mails sent to me: 2. LAST AFFILIATE GETS THE COMMISSION? Almost every week, new clickbank products are launched in the IM niche. From my experience, I make more money after the product has been launched and people are already buying it. The vendors of those products usually have "Pre-launch" whereby they collect emails of those who would promote those products. Most affiliates create review site for those products and visitors are only directed to an opt-in page of the vendor. From my experience, I make more money if I start promoting their products after full launch than before full launch. Does it mean that my affiliate link cookie overwrites those of other affiliates? Is the last affiliate the one who really gets credited for the sale? Is this just a coincidence?
