How MacKeeper’s Affiliate Program works
Why use the MacKeeper Affiliate Program?
We offer one of the best Mac security and cleaning products on the market for promotion along with one of the highest payouts in the niche.
How does it work?
MacKeeper Affiliate Program is a cookie-based tracking platform. The links we provide contain certain parameters that uniquely identify your website. When a visitor follows one of these links, the Program will determine that your website referred this visitor. Since the links we provide are the only way to track purchases from your website, you must use the links exactly as given and without any manual modifications to ensure accurate payment credit.
How can I be sure that the MacKeeper Affiliate Program counts all sales from my website?
When you are registered, you’ll get an Affiliate ID that is incorporated into your unique affiliate link, generated in the Links section. This guarantees that any traffic from your site is tracked.
What is the cookie lifetime?
The cookie lifetime is set to 180 days. This means that even if your visitor makes a purchase 180 days after your affiliate cookie was set, you’ll get the credit. We do not overwrite cookies. If a visitor who has your affiliate cookie follows another affiliate’s link and then proceeds to purchase, you will still get credit for the sale.
