    Question about cookies
    Hi there, apologies in advance if this is a very beginner question.

    I'm an affiliate with a company through ShareASale that offers 90 day cookies. My question is if a user ends up on a site from a link on my site but does not buy anything at that moment, do I get credit for the sale when the user purchases something later?

    What if, at that later point, the user later goes directly to the merchant site, without starting on my site? Is that where the cookies help me? Or would the user had to have started an order on their first encounter with the merchant in order for me to get credit?

    thanks in advance!

    "do I get credit for the sale when the user purchases something later?"

    Yes, providing they haven't deleted cookies or clicked thru another affiliate link.

    Yes, that's where the cookie helps, same as above tho. As long as they still have your cookie on their computer.
