    Does forwarding a link give you credit??
    Let's say you buy a domain name and have them forward it to your affiliate link. Should you still get credit for it and it work the same?

    I would think so.. it would set a cookie, so you should get credit.
    you may want to check the rules of the program you want to do that for though.

    yes it will. i have affiliates that approached me and for whatever reason, they were not able to work on that domain at that time.
    We saw about 5-7 hits/day with that affiliate. I think none convert

    It will work but you should check with the merchant to make sure this is not against their terms.

    Technically a redirect is not a click, and some merchants want the customer to click on a link on the affiliates site.

    just try it, and if you see clicks tracking, then chances are the sales will track too.
