I don't think you get what i mean.
The reason i asked was I had a server engineer come in to my company and we got talking about affiliate websites and i explained how they worked.
He said that he works at various companies every day and what would stop him dumping a cookie on each pc he worked on? He would then get commission if that person went onto the merchants site and bought something within the next 30 days. Each sale would come from different buyers. I couldn't answer that.
