Length of the Amazon Affiliate Cookie

Is it true that Amazon affiliate cookie lasts for the next 24 hours after you’ve sent the potential buyer to their site? What if the buyer didn’t buy the product within the cookie life time and then he makes up his mind and buy it a day or so after? No credit then? :shocked:

Yep, it only lasts 24 hours.

But one thing you might discover is that people often buy other products while they are at amazon. So even if you send them to some book, they still might buy a digital camera, some kind of software, or anything else.

Although the commissions are small and the cookie is short, the variety of products that people can get will often surprise you.

Thanks for responding and yeah you're right. I have seen a few examples of what you told above in my 7 days long Affiliate marketing experience with Amazon. But they should make it at least a week long. People normally take time before finally deciding to buy a product of higher price. Imho.

My second question related to Amazon... Is it just me or they update their stats every 24 hours?

Amazon updates their stats every 24 hours in most cases. Every once in awhile there will be a delay (usually during weekends).

All the best!

How long do visitors have to add an item to their Shopping Cart after clicking on one of my Amazon links until I no longer earn advertising fees on their purchase?

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp ... elp/t2/a11

In most cases, you earn advertising fees for visitors that come to an Amazon site and place any qualifying items in a customer's Shopping Cart within 24 hours of their arrival at most Amazon sites.com or 30-days for MyHabit.com. However, this 24-hour window for most Amazon sites and 30-day window for MyHabit.com will end before it expires once the customer submits his order or reenters Amazon.com through a Link that is not your Special Link. Once the window is closed, you will not earn advertising fees on any subsequent purchases. However, if the customer then returns to Amazon.com through one of your Special Links, this opens a new 24-hour window for most Amazon sites or 30-day window for MyHabit.com.
It is of course possible that a customer may arrive at an Amazon site (including MyHabit.com) via your Special Link, add an item to his Shopping Cart, and then leave Amazon.com or MyHabit.com without placing an order. As long as the item was added to the customer's Shopping Cart during this 24-hour window for Amazon.com or 30-days for MyHabit.com, you will still earn an advertising fee if the order is placed before the Shopping Cart expires (usually after 90 days). The advertising fee will not be credited to your Associates account until the customer has purchased the item, accepted delivery, and remitted full payment to Amazon.com.
