    I've been saying we should do some affiliate marketing for a while. Those pennies soon add up.

    Not 100% sure about how this works so sorry if this is a stupid question.

    I use iTunes from a Mac almost every day to either buy or rent something. If I click on the iTunes link, which then opens up the iTunes store - do you get commission simply from this - even using a Mac? Don't know if the system uses tracking cookies or anything.

    The way how they imply it works is when you click the link and itunes is launched it tags your itunes username with a marker that gives us a % for all sales for the next 24 hours from launching itunes. After 24 hours the tag is removed and all sales from then are no longer earning commission. I believe you can reclick the link though and the 24 hour period will reset if has expired. If you are still within that initial 24 hour period though it probably does not reset the count down until it expires.
    If you PM me when you do a order I will see if there is anyway to tell in the affiliate control panel.
    Hope that helps clarify a little.

    Thanks for he response - and yes it does make sense. I was just curious as iTunes is a separate application rather than just running a store within a browser. I did see the 24 hour notification when I clicked the link but blindly assumed you had only managed to make the deal with them for the next 24 hours! I will most likely be using it again tomorrow so will PM you with my iTunes user-name, what I bought and when etc if that is any help to you.

    If it does work, I will make sure that I always go to the store via the affiliates link on here.

    Cheers for that. I dont need order details or username tbh as we can only see the % earned for each link. Once I know a order is through I will check and see if it changes from 0.

    I will be updating the FAQ page tonight at some point so that should hopefully explain it all better.

    The Outlet link is still very Acer'ish. How about having it blend in with the rest of the links now?

    *I've never liked the button*

    ebuyer used to operate an affiliate scheme but pulled it some time ago. usually, especially through the current company, the businesses approve the website (us) before we can place an ad/link. other companies are not so fussy. @ZH try paidonresults, and affiliatefuture.

    a company i'd like to see is vistaprint which does cheapo (free if you pay postage) business cards. pcworld and pcworldbusiness, pcnextday, currys, dixons.... i can go on if required.
