    Hi,

    my business went totally down after Apple changed the settings on their safari browser. So the Safari browser does not accept cookies from the affiliate networks, I "work" for. So my incoming has dropped more than 60% because my business is all around apple products. And my visitors comes around 60-70% over the iPad or iPhone.

    Shortly, does anybody here has an easy solution to use an trick to drop the cookie on safari browsers? Maybe it is possible to drop a cookie on their ipad when they visit my site? I´m an absolute noob in css, html and programming. So I only use Wordpress.

    I really hope so bad that somebody can help me?

    I found this http://anantgarg. com/2010/02/18/cross-domain-cookies-in-safari/ in the web but I dont understand this and how I must put this on my site?

    search cross domain cookies on stackoverflow there are many questions about it and you can find your answer more easily.

    Ask the company you "work" for to either use cookieless tracking, html5 storage, flash LSO conditionally for safari. That doesn't seem like an overly complicated issue to sort out, honestly.

    Thanks!

    I contacted my company that I "work" for but I dont think they will do anything because its for their advantage to not pay for the leads I bring in.

    It is Zanox and Tradedoubler. I dont think they will make that for me, so I need "illegal" ways to drop some cookies or whatever.

    @inspiron

    I will search for that, thanks!

    Figure out what crap they were selling to your customers and have it remade, and sell it yourself. That way not only do you get 100% profits you would have otherwise gotten if cookies got set, you'd also have more profit margin because you cut them out as a middleman.

    If you have a ton of apple traffic market phone apps and games to them or something.

    No mate I sell Prepaid Phone cards, it is impossible for me to offer my own SIM Cards :)

    These assholes do not reply to my emails. They get free traffic from me and I get no conversions since iOS 5.x... I was making 10 times more a month than now, only because of this 3rd party cookie thing...

    IF anybody can help me with this, I will pay you some cash for help.

    I´ve asked here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14761064/3rd-party-cookies-on-safari but nobody will help.

    well, post a cookie dropping job on freelancer, i don't know what the solution is but they do. and if not then set the page to "must enable cookies to view". conversions will drop to shit but at least they wont be taking your commissions.
