AliExpress Affiliate Program
Today, I learned online that there are two plug-ins for the AliExpress affiliate program:
1. AliPlugIn Pro - This plug-in redirects customers to the AliExpress website to purchase their product.
2. AliDropship PlugIn - This plug-in allows you to mark-up the price, process the payment, and have the product shipped to the customer.
While deciding which option to go with, find out the "cookie" duration for AliExpress. A cookie on the Internet means, when a customer to your website clicks on your product link, the affiliate ID is stored on their browser within a text file, known as a cookie. That means, even if the customer doesn't purchase the product right then and closes the Internet tab; and later goes directly to AliExpress (instead of your website) to purchase the product, you still earn a commission. Some companies with affiliate programs have a 30-day cookie duration and others have no cookie duration (for example, Zazzle.com doesn't have a cookie duration).
I hope this helps.
