    hi,

    i will make this question short and sweet since we all know the affiliate link part as a way of tracking sales ect BUT..

    lets say that someone use my link to my "clickbank" product or "watheveritcanbe" referal program and DONT buy the first time

    and LEAVE the page BUT decide come back the day after and buy the X product i promote , will i get paid ?

    do those program use any method to track user,ip,host ect ?

    Is this a one shot "deal" ?

    thanks a lot

    Fukien

    Well I think they should if they don't. I assume they do! On my referral program on i-camz.com lots of referral agents were complaining about how someone goes to the site using their referral link but does not sign up right then but then returns later they would not get credit. So I added a tracking cookie that lasts up to 2 weeks. So if they return anytime within 2 weeks the referrer will still get credit.
