    If a user has cookies disabled will you ever get any type of credit for a lead/sale for a CPA offer?

    They don't even take the querystring for the affiliate id and store it on the backend to credit you? :confused:

    Hmm, maybe I jumped the gun. It may depend on the network.

    To my knowledge if the user doesn't have cookies enabled, it's unlikely that you will get credit for anything they do.

    @Sol42, 5 year old thread? Nice bump. But hey, at least you have 15 posts now!

    OT: Most likely you won't get credited as long as your affiliate ID is not in the url query string.
    For example, all sites using some kind if redirect when you send a user to domain.com?ref=123 and redirects them to domain.com will go uncredited.
    Just my theory.

    Old post with new replies. I'll bite. Most tracking these days is done server-to-server and does not rely on cookies. Too many issues with cookies now; UK regulations etc.
