website affiliate programs say that cookies last anywhere from 30 to 120 days to let affilate members know that they can receive potential sales for a certain amount of time from their customer. Does VPASP affiliate program have a time frame that cookies last from affiliate links?

It is o.k. if it doesn't - I just want to be able to say how long they last.

Hi there,

If your configuration option xAffiliateUseCookies is set to Yes, then more sales will be associated with an affiliate since the cookie will remember where the customer originally came from.

By default VP-ASP stores the cookie for 365 days, unless the customer deletes their cookies manually in their control panel.

If you want to alter the time that it takes for a cookie to expire, you can make a small change in the shopaff.asp file. At present line 37 looks like


You can change the 365 to a value of your choice to alter the time it takes to expire.

If you have any other questions that you need answered about VP-ASP, and you can't find the answer you need on the forum, please don't hesitate to contact our support team at http://www.vpasp.com/sales/shopcustcontact.asp
