How does the Webroot Affiliate Program track affiliate sales?

Affiliate sales are tracked through the use of the buy URL's that you place on your website or in your promotions. When a potential customer clicks on your ad and visits the Webroot store, a pixel tracking cookie is dropped to track any affiliate sales that are derived from this visit.

How does the Webroot Affiliate Program track sales that come from customers who download a trial from an affiliate?

The tracking for trial downloads happens in the same way that tracking occurs for visits to the website. When a customer clicks on a trial link from your site, they are immediately taken to a landing page on our site where a tracking pixel is placed on the consumer machine. If the customer purchases that day or any time in within the program return days, the affiliate will receive credit for the sale. Webroot does not offer commissions for trial only downloads.

What if a potential customer doesn't buy right away but comes back to the site later to make the purchase?

The cookie that is dropped to track affiliate sales activity by a potential customer persists for 120 days. Any sales purchased by that customer within that timeframe will result in a tracked affiliate sale. Note - If customer traffic is driven by another affiliate after the initial visit, the sale will be tracked to the most recent affiliate ad.
