The program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When your referral purchases their ABPG membership, the affiliate system checks for the cookie (a file left on their computer that tells us they came from your link). If a cookie is not found, then our system checks for the referral's IP address and matches it to usage data connected to your affiliate link. The system then credits your account $20 for that referral.
This process is absolutely automatic through well-designed algorithms and ensures that all your referrals will be properly tracked. Affiliate cookies track referrals for 60 days, and Sponsor-level cookies track referrals for 120 days.
