    Correct me if I'm wrong because I know little about cookies and they way merchants track.

    Doesn't the merchant have to set a cookie?

    I was checking cookies being set by merchants and realized that toyworldtoo does not set cookies. Not one! I thought they would have to, especially with 30 return days.

    Clarification will be much appreciated.


    PS, I joined their program when they first started on CJ, not one sale yet.

    The cookies are controlled by cj under the domain

    When your link is clicked, the cookie is set. During check-out on the merchants site, the cookie is read by CJ on the thank-you/receipt page via a hidden (1x1) image.

    Since web browsers only allow the domain that sets the cookie to manipulate it, it cuts down on the possibility of cookie tampering.

    That is how a site would do it without setting their own cookie.
