  • What is it about?

    The 150-day cookie tracking period sounds great but I am not sure what it is about (sorry for being a newbie :smile: ). Does it mean that an affiliate will earn commission every time a customer coming through his affiliate link makes any purchase within 150 days after he makes the first purchase?

    Absolutely correct. If a visitor clicks on the affiliate link and does not make any purchase at that moment, but returns back to the product page later within 150 days, you would still be eligible for the commission if he signs up for the package.

      Yes, that's what it means... and it's one the best affiliate programs you can find around. 150 days means a lot of time for people to make up their minds regarding purchasing a package from eUKhost.

        Thanks for confirming. Yeah you are right, it's around 5 months. People would have enough time to make up their mind. It's perfectly fair because someone doesn't usually make a decision or take an action at the first visit.

          The 150-day cookie tracking period sounds really great, but you should be a very cocky person (self confident) to turn you visitors into sales otherwise you won't get any cookie

            That's true. The best way of confidently motivating your visitors to purchase the promoted hosting plan is using it yourself and sharing your good experience with them.

              Very Well stated Gregory.

              If you have first hand experience about using the offered services, you are better able to explain your experience it to people. Rather the explanation comes naturally hence you aren't required to put any extra efforts to draft it in words. Moreover such experiences tend to reach out well to the readers.

                I have to say the eUKhost affiliate scheme is quite generous with the commission you receive. As far as I'm aware you can add banners or text links to your sites or blogs from within the affiliates page with different banners to match your website's colour, overall design, etc.

                In regards the the OP's question, the cookie is 150 days long and as long as the end user doesn't clear their cookies or individually removes the 150-day cookie, when they signup, the order form will detect the cookie and commission the affiliate member who referred the new customer.

                  I was just about to mention the cookie clearing point then. Hopefully less technically minded people don't clear them often .

                    I don't usually clear the cookies myself, so I wouldn't worry so much about this. If you use Google Chrome, you wouldn't be able to easily find the place where you can delete the cookies.

                      Tbh. most of the non-technical people are actually unaware about the browser cache thing, rather I doubt if they even know that such a thing exists.

                      But yes, its a valid point stated by Ben. If incase someone clears the browser cache, the affiliate software would not be able to track the sale, hence resulting in failure to earn commission for it.

                        Yeah, I agree with Matt. Most non technical people know about browsing history and clearing that and thats it.

                        Just to clarify, say person 1 visits my site and clicks on the affiliate link they now have a cookie on their computer. Assuming they don't delete the cookies, say they bought one package one week later and then another package 4 weeks after that would you earn commission on just the first package? Or both of them? .

                          You'd definitely earn commission for both. :wink: A sale is a sale, no matter in what sequence it is, even if someone makes purchase on the 149th day since the activation of cookie it'd still be added to your account. :smile:

                            Interesting and enlightening discussion, thanks. Though, it has raised another inquiry. In the case of DPS' website and affiliate link, would the cookie expire 150 days after the first visit of the person or after his last purchase (which was 5 weeks after his first visit)?

                              The cookie would expire after 150 days, since you'd be referring a visitor to the product pages of Eukhost, there is no question of him clicking on the affiliate link present on DPS's webpages, unless ofcourse he intentionally goes back and clicks it again.
