1 day = 24 hours.

Marketing Channel: the value will expire in 24 hours after the Visitor's last hit

eVar: the value will expire in 24 hours after it was captured

Hi,

The first time a user reaches your site, a cookie (labeled s_vi) receives an assigned value containing a unique visitor ID.

e.g.

[CS]v1|2EB8DA6D850799A0-40000120C0004BD9[CE] - Visitor ID

2021-09-05T12:40:44.789Z - Expiration

This unique visitor ID gets set on each hit by the user. When you set expiration in an eVar, it collects data till the expiration time ends.

Visit ends
Next day (Before eVar Expiration)

eVar1 expiration time ends
Next day (After eVar Expiration)
82117115115328710410checkout
Once a expiration time ends, values stop being copied in the post_evar column.

Thanks!
