  1. Always depends upon the affiliate program you are promoting.

    The cookies thing is true for hosting affiliate programs, shopping , ebay , amazon affiliate programs etc. etc.

    On CPA Networks, in case of mobile offers, finance offers, health offers etc, 99% sales happens after the user clicks the banner (in the same session) rather than due to cookie sometime in future.
