How Referrals Work

Can multiple affiliates earn a referral credit from a single product purchased by a referred customer?

NoWe only allow one affiliate visit to be stored at a time. In other words, if a customer clicks two separate affiliate links, only the one that they clicked most recently will be able to generate the referral.

Each time a customer clicks one of your affiliate links, we save a cookie to their browser that will expire in 14 days. If they purchase within those 14 days, then a referral will be generated (assuming you are an active affiliate for the product that was purchased). 

For more on how to become an affiliate for creators and their products, see Becoming an Affiliate and Generating Referrals.

How soon does the customer have to purchase the product in order for the referral to count?

Customers must purchase a product within 14 days after first clicking on your affiliate link in order for the referral to count. When the customer clicks on the link, we save a cookie to their browser with some unique codes that we can then check for after the purchase. So long as the customer’s cookie is valid and you are an active affiliate for the product that was purchased, the referral will be generated.
What this means is that you will want to share creators' products in such a way that potential customers are encouraged to buy them.
