How does ArchangelsBooks.com
track impressions, clickthroughs, and valid orders?
Once you put an ArchangelsBooks.com promotional link on your site with the HTML code we provide, we start doing all the tracking for you and evaluating your performance and orders. Embedded in that HTML is a unique identifier that we use to identify all referrals coming from your site. Once a customer enters our main page, or any category or product page he receives an HTTP 'cookie' a unique identifier stored in his machine. This certifies that if he or she orders even if he or she visits other sites up to 90 days afterwards (ArchangelsBooks.com has a 90 day active cookie If a customer orders within 90 days of the first visit to our website); the order will still be correctly identified as yours and commissioned to you.

viewers to click on the ArchangelsBooks.com links?
