The current CG Shortcuts Affiliate Program Cookie is valid for 30 days, offering 30 days of sales commission from each single time your unique affiliate link is clicked by a unique user.
Direct Link Tracking
If you have submitted a domain for approval, and it is approved by the site administrator, the affiliate can link directly to our site, from theirs, without using their referral link. When a visitor clicks the link on the affiliate’s website and arrives on your site, the domain is looked up in the database. If the domain belongs to an affiliate, that affiliate’s ID is stored in the browser’s cookies, just like a normal affiliate link. If the customer then goes on to complete a purchase (or a conversion), a referral will be created for the affiliate.
