What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that works with web browsers to store information like user preferences, login or registration information, and shopping cart contents. When someone comes to your blog or website and clicks or taps your affiliate link, a cookie is placed on their computer or mobile device. That cookie is used to remember the link or ad the visitor clicked.

Thanks to cookies, even if a consumer leaves your site and comes back a week later to make a purchase, you will still get credit for the purchase and receive a commission.

How long do cookies last?

This is decided by the merchant. Cookie durations, also known as “cookie life,” depend on the program. For example, cookie life can be set for almost any amount of time. The most common cookie length for an affiliate program is 30 days.

Thryv’s cookie life is 90 days to help ensure you make the most for your promotions. This means when someone clicks your affiliate link, you’ll be paid a commission if they make a purchase within 90 days of the click.
