    Some of the offer I promote says "Cookie Tracking - 30 days". Any idea what does it mean? Why does CPA offers have this?

    It means that you will receive commission for any sales within a 30 day period. It's not unusual for someone to visit a site and not buy but to return at a later time/date. So, this way you don't lose out, unless the buyer has removed all cookies of course.

    The longer this tracking is undertaken then the better for you.

    There's a specific section for affiliate programs on this forum GFawkes. Probably best if you take a read through to see what other members think as there are quite a few to choose from.

    Best of luck!
