    naive question about what triggers a commission

    I'm new to affiliate marketing. If a user clicks on an API product, what triggers a payment? Does the user have to buy THAT product for me to get paid? What if the user buys OTHER products? How long a period of time does this apply for (ie cookie stored for how long)? And, same kinds of questions for the coupons--does the user have to use the coupon code, and what if he buys other products the code doesn't apply to?

    Thanks.

    The user can purchase any product. In many cases the person buys something other than what they clicked. Cookies can vary from a few hours to a year, but the majority are around 30-60 days. For coupons, it also sets a cookie when the click the url, so you don't have to use the coupon code, and you don't have to purchase what was specified in the coupon.
