    If a customer add one product via Amazon associate A's link, and then add another product via Amazon associate B's link during the same session, which associate gets the commission, A or B?

    B gets commission on both products in that order? If it is the case, those amazon filler sites are really smart.

    Yep, they push the customer to buy a $1 item and they get the commission for the full $25 order. I'm not sure if the affiliate that did the hard work to sell the other $24 in the cart thinks the filler sites are smart. But, it's the way it works.
    Affiliate marketing is still full of loopholes.

    The last affiliate to send a customer during a session gets the commission, so B is correct.

    I believe that is different if items are placed in the shopping cart or wish list. Whoever sent the customer when they placed the item in the cart will get the commission if the customer purchases the item within 90 days.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.
