When a potential buyer clicks through the affiliate url, a cookie is set in their browser. This cookie remains in the visitor's browser if they leave your site, or even turn off their computer and log back in a month later. The only way it will be deleted is if the visitor deletes their cookies manually, reformats their hard drive, buys a new computer, etc...but for the average web surfer a cookie remains in their browser for a long time.

Then, when this visitor comes back to buy, after the sale is complete the affiliate script will be triggered by a little tag of code in the approval page that shows up after an order is finalized. It will launch the affiliate program and the script will look for the cookie, and if present reward the affiliate with the appropriate commission. Typically, the tag of code in the approval page will contain the final purchase price of the sale and the script will calculate the commission based on that value.

We also have an optional IP tracking mechanism which will track referrals in the short-term (less than a day, usually per-visit) if the visitor's browser doesn't accept cookies or they delete their cookies before they buy. However, the majority of the referral tracking is done by setting and reading cookies.
