In Cookie, you can decide the time period that allows tracking your affiliate’s referral to keep receiving commissions.
The tracking date will start from the time a customer clicks on the affiliate’s link.
Within the cookie time you’ve set, every order made by this customer at your shop will automatically result in commissions to the affiliate (There’s no need for the customer to click on the affiliate link then, but that customer need to use the same device and same browser as he/she did the first time to make a purchase).
After that date, if the customer somehow clicks to buy from the affiliate link. A new commission/cookie cycle repeats.
For example, if you set Cookie time as 30 days. During 30 days, if the customer buys anything from you, the commission will be recorded to the affiliate’s account.
From Day 31 onward, any purchases from the customer if not via the affiliate link will NOT lead to any commission recorded to the affiliate anymore.
The maximum Cookie day is 3650 days (10 years)
