    Ebay mechanics question.
    When does Ebay overwrite an affiliate's cookie with their own? Will something as rudimentary as doing a new search or clicking to view Ebay Stores inventory replace the affiliate cookie?

    The reason I ask is that I wanted to test how Ebay was tracking so I did a few BINs today on merchandise, each time after taking one of my affiliate links to Ebay. None of the BINs show up in CJ, even though there are othere entries both before and after the time of my BINs.

    My links were to auction searches, but in each case the purchase I did was from an Ebay Stores listing, so I'm wondering if clicking on an Ebay Stores item from an auction search kills the cookie.

    I don't think so because I had somebody click through one of my auction listings today, and make a BIN from an eBay store. Maybe there is just a delay in posting your purchases. Give it a little more time.
