Affiliate marketing - merchant terms re vistors purchases

The question is
If someone clicked on a product I reviewed but did not buy it then expect he bookmarked this page and after 10 days he bought it, do I still get the credit.

that depends on whether or not your merchant uses cookies or not and what the duration of the cookie is, some are as long as a lifetime :D we love those!
example: if your visitor bookmarks your page, the merchant uses a 30 day cookie and your visitor goes back and buys in 2 weeks you get the commision, if they go back in two months, you won't.

Look at your affiliate terms to find out what the cookie duration is.

Depends solely on 2 things.

Cookie duration

Whether or not the person cleared their cookie cache from the browser during computer maintenance.
