What are cookies, and why are they important?
Affiliate sales are normally tracked using cookies (small text files set on the visitor’s computer) and the duration of how long to keep them on a visitor’s machine is called cookie life. In Affiliate marketing it means the time period between the click on the affiliate site and the last day we are willing to pay that affiliate a commission of the sale made by their visitor/referral.
We offer a 30 day “life of a click,” which basically means that if anyone buys something from us within 30 days after clicking on your link, we will pay you a commission (unless they’ve clicked on someone else’s affiliate link in between yours and the sale).
What are my responsibilities as a GoTranscript Affiliate?
You are only responsible for using links and creative’s (marketing materials) provided by us that enable you to create and place links on your site or other channels listed in our terms. We handle everything else.
I manage/own more than one website; do I need to apply separately for each?
NO, you do not need to apply separately. If you have multiple websites we recommend managing them with one account using our tracking tools. We allow you to track the progress of your sites or pages and get paid a single commission payout.
