    First Click or Last Click?
    Hi Folks,

    With regards to multiple affiliates referring a single sale, what do you think is the most fair:

    1st Referrer Wins (i.e. the first link a customer clicks on gets the sale, even if later they click on another affiliate link)

    Last Referrer Wins (i.e. the last link customer clicks before purchasing gets the sale)

    ???

    PS>Can somebody PM me and show me how to make an actual poll?

    Cheers

    Last click. Last thread/poll on it - http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ighlight=click

    Almost 86% said last click, which is the correct answer.

    That won't ever become widespread and that's a good thing. 15 different scenarios is a bit (way too) much.

    sorry...

    Didn't see this until now. I think I stopped receiving alerts when someone replies to my posts. Did ABestWeb change this?

    YES -- Share Results is last click.

    It was being discussed on a technical level by IT as to what was best, but I just wanted to see what the most current thinking on this was (considering the recent resurgence of upsetting issues regarding cookie overwriting, etc...)

    Thanks for the incite fellas!
