2. After signing up, you’ll be able to see the affiliate commission you will receive, how often, in what manner, minimum pay-out and number of cookie days.
Running rate is between 8-10% affiliate commission, once a month pay-out (40 days after the sale – no returns/refunds made), through PayPal or Payoneer, minimum pay-out of $25/month and 1-7 cookie days.
What are cookie days? These are your referrals who have visited the website and all purchases they have made within the cookie days are credited to your commission. Let’s say you have a 7-day cookie and your customer purchased $60. On the 4th day, your customer bought another $40 worth. In all, for that particular customer, you have $100 sales and with a 10% affiliate commission, you will receive a $10 pay-out.
