Hi I was just reading through the terms and conditions content and came across something interesting:
The line is under the Referral fees/commissions and payment section and reads:
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to
https://diyinfoproducts.comand complete an order for a product during that session.
But the Cookie Duration Setting info box reads as follows…
When a user comes to your site via an affiliate link, a cookie will be set in the users web browser. Normally, with a setting of zero (0), the affiliation only lasts as long as the user keeps their web browser open. That is, if they don’t purchase something and instead close their browser, the affiliation ends.
Setting this to a value other than zero, will allow the cookie to stay around for that many days. This would give credit to the affiliate if a user arrived at your site via an affiliate link, closed their browser, but came back later to your site by typing in the URL (rather than visiting through an affiliate link) and purchased something (within the specified number of days).
In the affiliate industry a 15-30 day cookie duration is pretty standard. The longer the duration, the more attractive your program is to affiliates.
So maybe an update to the boilerplate Terms and Conditions content is needed?
Hi, you can edit the terms and condition page in your site.
How can you update the terms and conditions. I have tried deactivating my page cache, the affiliate manager plugin. then edit the terms and conditions and then reactivate the affiliate manager. I even tried deleting the manager plugin reinstall edit and then activate. still nothing I change shows up in the terms and conditions page. I am editing the following file in the plugin.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, please check the following documentation. Let me know if this helps you.
