How is the user assigned to ab affiliate?

The user clicks on your affiliate link. Affiliate ID, specified in the link, is written in a special cookie file on the user’s computer and stored there for 30 days.

This means any purchases the user makes during the 30 days after the date of the transition to your affiliate link will be counted to you. Even when the user goes to our website directly from a search engine or bookmarks, all purchases will still be credited to the partner.

After 30 days, the user is detached from the partner. However, when he/she again clicks on the affiliate link, the user is again assigned to the partner for 30 days.

For most of the offers in the affiliate network, the lifetime of cookies is also 30 days. But for some it may be different. The exact data can be found in the summary table.

Note: The user is assigned to the partner whose affiliate link he/she joined later.

Example: On Monday, the user came across the link of Partner № 1 and was assigned to him. The user searched for a ticket but did not buy anything. On Wednesday, the user went to the link of partner № 2 and was assigned to him. On Friday he visited the site from the direct link and bought a ticket. In this case, Partner № 2 receives the reward because his link was used later.
