    Are merchant wish lists eating cookies?
    I've had an order delivered - no sale recorded, no commission. A previous order with that merchant had tracked and been paid, but the difference this time was that the items were stored in their wish list and moved from there into the cart to place the order.

    Are orders that go directly to carts commissionable, while if they go through the "wish lists" they become house accounts so we don't get paid?

    To add a comment, I've noticed more of these wish lists turning up on different sites, and while I personally like using them when I shop, what's the net effect on affiliate income, and should we be watching out to avoid sites that have them?

    It shouldn't, from a technical standpoint--ie, cookie deletion wouldn't be an inherent quality of a wish list--but that doesn't mean that some merchants haven't added cookie-munching code to theirs...

    How long was the item in the wish list? Did your cookie expire?
