Has anyone experience the problem of users to your site selecting links and then copying the URL and circumventing your page link (to an affiliate) loosing you payment from any orders they might place.

I came across a ID tracker cookie that would have fixed the problem (providing it wasnít deleted) that would have reported the link (to my affiliate) as having come from my site for payment. Went and lost the blooming thing. Well thatís roughly what it was supposed to do. Has anyone go suggestions or thoughts on the matter

A sneaky thing you can do is open up an invisible iframe that loads the merchant page, thus setting their tracking cookie on the user's computer. Most programs disallow this, but you can do it.
