Refunds - Removal Of Commissions
If a customer refunds their purchase, we will remove the commission from your account. If you have already received a payment for the purchase, your affiliate account with be negative and the payment will be taken from future commissions earned.
If there is any suspicious activity with purchases made on your affiliate links, commissions will be removed and investigated to determine if they are legitimate purchases or not.
Some commissions may be held for up to 90 days after a purchase to make sure they are not refunded (this is rare, and handled on a case by case basis).
We will pay a commission for an order placed within the cookie life of 180 days, unless the customer makes a purchase after clicking on another affiliates link. The Commission rates are subject to change at any time, in our sole discretion, without notice, however we will make a reasonable attempt to notify you of the change.
