All affiliates start on Tier 1 at 10% commission. This also includes subscription/recurring payments, and all future purchases of those that you refer to EWWW IO (lifetime commissions). You cannot receive a commission on your own payments, or for payments made before you registered to become an affiliate.
Tier 2 requires 20 successful referrals, and pays at a rate of 15%. Tier 3 requires 50 successful referrals and pays 20%.
Tiered rates do not currently apply to lifetime commissions (due to software limitation), but do apply to subscription renewals. Thus, if someone purchases a non-subscription product, you will get commission at your current tier. If they purchase another non-subscription product later, that will be at 10%.
Payouts can be done via the Payouts system or Paypal. Note that Paypal payouts will incur a fee on the receiving end so we recommend signing up for the Payouts system in your Affiliate Settings. Payouts are done on (or near) the second Monday of every month for those who have a minimum of $50 in referrals.
Affiliates may not engage in any fraudulent activity to generate sales, use traffic that is generated by pay to click, pay to read, banner exchanges, click exchanges, CPV advertising, pop-up/under, SPAM, purchased traffic or similar methods.
Affiliates must disclose their affiliate status in relation to all promotions, according to FTC Endorsement Guides.
