If a visitor comes to www.laplink.com
from your website, but does not purchase on that
visit, you can still earn commission on sales from
that customer if they return to our website and make
a purchase within 60 days of their initial
visit. Similarly, if your visitor downloads a software trial, then purchases the product at the end of the trial period, you will earn commission.
