Hello All,
As anyone else had the issue with the Affiliate Link not following a shopper (customer) through your store.
I have tried this myself and the Product Link works great but once the shopper starts to browse the store it default as if the customer did NOT get to the store via an Affiliate link.
This cause any other products purchase NOT to be credited to the Affiliates Account Automatically.

Oh the only extensions loaded on this store is a Stripe Extension and a Quick Checkout Extension with very little stylesheet.css modification.

It doesn't have to. Once it sets a cookie then the link is no longer needed.

I guess I didn't make myself clear. I want the Affiliate link to follow the customer through the site so as they purchase additional items the AFFILIATE gets the credit for the full purchase not just the Single Product that brought them to my store.

Once a user opens any openCart page with URL that contains tracking code, that tracking code is saved in cookies and no longer has to be in the URL.

While that cookie exists tracking code is restored on every page visited by the user, and affiliate gets commission for all products purchased by that user, even if they accessed product pages with links without the code in the URL.

Extensions for affiliates (openCart 1, 2, 3):
Advanced Multi Level Affiliate System
Customer and Affiliate Accounts Combined into one Account
Affiliate Tracking with Coupons
Discount for Referred Customers - Order Total
Type Tracking Code
Mass Pay
Affiliate Transactions for openCart 3
Affiliate Pack X - all modules with 40% discount
