How long is the customer assigned to the affiliate?

The user is assigned to the partner up to 30 days after clicking the link with the partner ID. The number of days is different for each program and it is called cookie lifetime. You can find information about cookie lifetime in the program's description.

It should be noted that if a user is assigned to one partner and follows the link of another, then they will be reassigned to the second partner.
