We offer lifetime commissions within our affiliate program. However, there are technical limitations and performance requirements.
From the moment a customer visits our site via your affiliate URL, a cookie is placed on their computer. This allows us to track the customer even if they don’t immediately make a purchase. They can close their browser and return later to complete the order, and you will still be recognized as the referring affiliate. Our cookies are set with a 30-day duration.
The customer may choose to clear their cookies at any time. This is out of our control. Clearing cookies will remove any tracking, and purchases will no longer be tracked to your affiliate account. The same applies if they use a different web browser or device than originally used to access your referral link.
Once a purchase is made, that customer is linked to your affiliate account. As long as you are the most recent referrer, all future purchases by that customer account will be automatically tied to your affiliate account and will generate the relevant commissions. Once this connection is made, there is no further reliance on cookies.
We use “last click” tracking. This means that if a customer was referred by another affiliate weeks, months or even years ago, but then clicks on your link and makes a new purchase, you will get receive commissions for this new order instead of the original referrer, and will receive lifetime commissions on that customer’s future purchases for as long as that customer isn’t referred by some other affiliate. “Last click” tracking is the most common type of tracking, and rewards the most recent marketing and promotional efforts.
Referral Partners that do not meet minimum performance requirements may lose lifetime commissions status. Ten (10) new referred customers per year are required to maintain lifetime commission status. If 10 new customers are not referred by any given affiliate within a single year lifetime commissions will be revoked, and all recurring commissions previously earned under the referral partner program will cease.
