    For merchants with cookie durations of more than a day, does the SID tracking code hold code? Specifically, if somebody clicks on a link, but does not buy anything until, say three days, later - by going directly back to the vendors site, does the SIDS tracking hold?

    I realize that I would get credit since the cookie is still good, but would the transaction reports show the SIDS in a case like this?

    TIA.

    Although I can't say for sure I would think the SID field would have to be included in the cookie that is set. Since it is included in the link from our site and that is where the cookie information comes from.

    Heyder is right, the SID is baked right into the cookie. Elven magic. :crunch:

    I have a &sid= related question.

    Has anyone figured out how to get &sid= to validate as 4.01 transitional HTML? I have validated all my sites EXCEPT for this problem which returns an error on all of my products pages.
