**Norwalk uses a “last Affiliate wins” system, under which a particular Internet user is assigned to the last affiliate site he visited prior to entering Norwalk’s website and then completes a transaction with Norwalk. For instance, the user visits Affiliate A; then enters Norwalk but does not complete a transaction; then the user later visits Affiliate B; finally enters Norwalk again and this time submits an order. In this case the consumer is assigned to Affiliate B, and the commission is paid to Affiliate B.Follow me on social media.
