    If ebates is overwriting my Amazon cookies, how would it show up in my Amazon stats?

    I'm showing, for the last two days, thousands of unique visitors and clicks, but no sales.

    If my cookie is being overwritten, would the unique visitors still show up, or would all three stats (uniques, clicks, sales) be zero?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi tbrown,

    I'm not an expert about this, but for what I know if a user clicks your links it will show up on your stats.

    but Parasites can overwrite your cookie when the user buy from the merchant/s if the user is infected by them.

    The BHO theftware triggers off your shoppers click and overwrites you cookie whacking you 2 ways. Makes your pre-sell effort look worthless to you and the merchant and eliminates your chance to get a commission. BHO's do not pre-sell -do not advertise in the SE's, do not brand for merchants and often allow their captives to un-install them from thier systems.
