    You know mate, Will I Get an Affiliate Commission If They Buy on The Second Visit, well, this question would make sense. And I am sure glad that no-one has asked me that as I did not know the answer to it. Until now that is. Thank you for this well written post Marion. You are continuing, as ever, to provide help and value to your readers.

    Thanks for explaining about cookies. I never thought about the chance that someone may use another device when clicking on an affiliate link. If they don’t purchase right away and decide to do so later, it may be from a phone instead of the original computer, for example. We, as the affiliate marketer, would lose the sale. 🙁

    Hi Marion, thanks for this information on cookies and how they are set up. I didn’t realize they could “self expire” on their own so I learned something new!

    Do you know which companies use lifetime cookies or is there a way to find out? I know you said for existing companies we could check their terms and conditions but I guess we could also just contact them for verification.

    I am an associate with Amazon and I think their cookie only lasts for 24 hours if I’m not mistaken. But I wonder if you could clear something up for me. I have just started using Amazon Onelink and if someone in Canada or UK clicks on my Amazon.com affiliate link, they are re-directed to Amazon in their respective country. Will that still add a cookie to the relevant Amazon country site because the link is on the USA site?
