A regular Amazon Affiliate link cookie only lasts for 24 hours so the person would have to purchase the item or items through your regular Amazon Affiliate link within 24 hours otherwise you won't receive a commission.

As long as the person makes the purchase through your Amazon Affiliate link within 24 hours then you get a commission.

However if you create a special Amazon Affiliate Link that automatically adds the item to the persons cart then the Amazon Affiliate Link cookie will last for 90 days.

If the person buys the product that is added to their cart within 90 days then you get the commission and if they wait longer than 90 days then you don't receive the commission.
