How does the Social Affiliate module track referrals?
The tracking process generally looks like this: a registered customer sends an invitation to his friend. It may be a personal invitation or a broadcast link (which is the same for each friend) the referred person follows the link and gets to the website. The website puts a cookie to the browser of the referred person. The cookie lives until the browser tab gets closed at that moment, the referred person may go for signing up with the website. In this case, registration routine recognizes the cookie and the user is assigned as a referral to a certain affiliate (who has sent the invitation) if the referred person leaves without going for registering, the cookie disappears. If he comes back to website by a simple link and signs up, he doesn't become a referral. However, if he comes back by the invitation link, the same cookie is set again and he becomes a referral if signs up.

The idea is that your customers refer their friends to your web-store and get a fixed discount or a percent discount on the referral purchase on their own purchase in your store, that's all.
