I am just seting up the system, so how does the affiliate system work?
I worked myself for an affiliate system with 50% payout, but it happened very rare.
It was to download the trieal version of a software.
After 6 weeks, the trial version expired and I assume most cookies had been deleted.
So I got my money only in the rare cases, that the cookie survived the 6 weeks trial period.
I do not want, that similar happens to my affiliate system here, so I ask how it works.
An other idea is to sell a merchant voucher codes.
The merchant can sell his voucher codes direct.
The customer can use the voucher code to download my e-book.
I write merchant, because this is complete different from affiliate.
The affiliate only arranged selling.
The merchant buys viucher codes with a discunt and sells voucher codes.
