    Cookies Count?
    In CJ, how long can a customer go without purchasing an item from an advertiser and still give give credit to a publisher. I'm wondering if CJ set some kind of limit on cookies within CJ. Please let me know something.

    info
    Heres what I found on CJ,

    How does Commission Junction know which publisher to pay for a transaction?
    Essentially, because Commission Junction is a cookie-based system, it has the ability to pass unique information regarding the publisher and the advertising links used to the customer. That information resides within the customer browser for however long that cookie is set to last (determined by each advertiser) or until that customer purchases a product.

    Thanks MoD, how can I view, as an advertiser, how long our cookie is set for. I've searched for this but can't seem to find it?

    The Action Referral Period tells you how long your cookie will be set for.

    Cookie duration can be up to 120 days, unless overwritten by one of CJ's special friends who are allowed to overwrite other affiliate's cookies. In this case the 120 day count is reset at day one for the special friend, and the referring affiliate is no longer eligible receive commissions on sales to the customer that he/she referred.
