    Does Bill Me Later overwrite aff cookie?
    I found this thread from back in 2007 but can't find any more up-to-date info.

    Now that PayPal owns it & it's a payment choice in PayPal, I'm guessing that the tracking, if any, is easy to screw up & quite frankly, that no one gives a d*amn whether or not it does.


    So the $64,000 questions are does Bill Me Later track aff cookies? Or are they an aff & our cookies are overwritten?

    I guess mum's the word on this. However, I found this thread from 2009 that basically answers my questions.

    Question to your question:

    Why would "Bill Me Later" overwrite an affiliate cookie?

    Convergence, I agree, that is a bad title, please change to whatever you wish. Apologies for my egregious error.

    My first question was (some via PayPal, etc.) and how likely it is for an aff cookie to get washed / lost (or whatever the correct term is) in the process as many have noted that PayPal / Google Checkout don't always accurately track.

    Their emails with suggested deals, offers, etc.,...I realize it's not overwriting an aff cookie, but they're the last referrer, perhaps by CPA, CPC or whatever the terms of their partnerships are.

    I use BML, it's convenient & useful. As it's become quite popular, I'm wondering about the impact on affiliates.

    The thread from 2009 basically answered my questions.
