    you might want to check on the cookie duration or return date also.
    Cos some merchants have return date of 0.258.
    That works in favor of the merchant

    it's the time a person clicks on the linkshare or CJ link and is directed to the merchant's website. That is when the countdown starts.

    So if the person does not buy/convert in 0.258 days (about 8hrs), then if he / she returns tomorrow or after 8 hrs, you will not get commission.

    Usually, it is 14 days to 30 days, depending on the industry but as I mentioned, it all Depends

    it is on each program before you join.

    i.e. this is for my program
    http://www.linkshare.com/joinprograms?oid=92979
    Login to linkshare.
    On the left, you will see the stats like commission, return time duration, etc

    It is not hidden as most merchants have it on their site..

    This is just part of it.
    There are other things that you need to keep an eye out for.

    Like non paying merchants, creative that they offer, support, commission, etc.

    Read on ABW and all the best
