How long does Amazon cookie last?

    Hey folks,

    I'm a noob to the Amazon affiliate program so I have a newbie question. When someone clicks on your affiliate link how long does the amazon cookie stay in their system?

    As far as i know, an Affiliate id stays at one's system for 30 days.. that's why when they return to the the site using a direct link and buy a product, u still earn from it..

    Shoot for making an immediate sale. Plenty of people clear their cache/cookies upon closing the browser window.

    That is the problem in the affiliate marketing.
    Still I've also heard about something like 24h for Amazon

    Thanks guys and gals. I know Clickbank cookies stay for a while as do lots of other affiliate programs, but I always heard Amazon cookies had a much shorter lifespan. So it sounds like 24 hours is the majority answer. Thanks for the feedback everybody.

    So just get as many people to click your link as possible to some random item and then keep your fingers crossed they decide to buy something within 24 hours....sounds like a great plan! Haha. I'm joking ofcourse.

    One day and that is bad, because according to my experience with other networks, about 50% buyers don't buy the first day. They came back latter during the next 10 days and buy.

    If you use a store type website to promote amazon or the customer adds to cart then it lasts for 90 days.

    Otherwise it lasts 24 hours.
