There is a problem with Waterstone's affiliate program. It doesn't work regardless of which browser is used. I am trying to determine why.
Assuming a correctly-working affiliate program, then a commission is paid if the purchase is made with the same browser instance opened by clicking in the search results. The commission probably won't be paid if in the middle of the process, a user changes from the internal browser (the calibre browser) to an external one or vice versa.
In any event, people should use whatever process pleases them. Commissions are nice, but it is more important that the store be easily used.
