What type of tracking technology does Post Affiliate Pro use? How does it work?
Post Affiliate Pro combines a few methods to ensure maximum tracking. The primary method is "flash cookie and browser cookie" based tracking systems. Cookies are small pieces of text data that are saved on a visitor's computer. When a visitor clicks on a banner or link, the information containing affiliate info and banner info is saved into the cookie. Later, when customer makes a purchase, the cookie is checked and if it contains the affiliate (who referred the customer), the system generates the appropriate commission for this affiliate.
Another method that is used if cookies fail is tracking the IP address of the visitor.
Post Affiliate Pro uses a unique method of cookie tracking — combining 1st and 3rd party cookies to increase the reliability of tracking to the highest level possible.
As far as we know, we are the only company in the world offering this.
Can I use the Site Replication feature on a hosted account ?
Yes, you can use Site Replication feature on our hosted accounts. The only problem is that you cannot upload files for the replication directly; you have to use an external URL for replication.
