it is not able to be disabled apparently. this is what a popular VRC model creator said in regards: @everyone Gumroad just added the ability for anyone to steal creators' income. Please upvote this to have it removed. Information about this can be found within the link. https://help.gumroad.com/article/323-global-affiliates https://gumroad.nolt.io/356 In regards to my last ping, there are sites out there that are **abusing** this feature. Due to the nature of the functionality of Gumroad's affiliate system, clicking on certain links from these sites at any time will store cookies on your machine that ultimately, in many circumstances, **take money from creators without their knowing.** With this in mind, please clear your browser's cookies to ensure that this behavior does not continue.

I upvote the article, thanks Gumroad show products on my affiliated product tab automatically although I didn't referred to their products or generate link for them, I became an affiliate for creators I don't know before, I try to remove cookies but the problem didn't resolve, I still get affilation to products that I don't know. If this problem didn't resolve I'm obliget to delete the account and go to another platform like ko-fi
