Referral cookie period
Cookies are used to track individuals (i.e. leads) who click on your affiliate link. Therefore, your affiliate leads need to be using cookies for their conversions to be tracked.
If the affiliate’s lead doesn’t allow cookies or clears their cookies then the conversion will not be tracked. Consequently, commissions/earnings from that sale would not be paid.

Within the cookie time, every website design service order made by this customer at WP Motion’s website will automatically result in commissions to the affiliate.
