Let's say my friend has a website and he posts his affiliate link to an item on Amazon. How many times can I purchase that item or those items before he stops getting a fee from it? The way I understand their affiliate program is that they put a cookie on your computer and whichever item you buy, your friend gets a cut of that. But what if I buy an item, delete the cookie, click another link for another item, and then buy it again? Will his account get banned for it? Will my account get banned for it? Backstory: I buy a lot of items on Amazon and only return it if it's faulty, which rarely happens. So as long as I'm buying all these items, why not have a friend make some cash back from each one?
