No Spamming. Surely we don’t need to say anything more about this, do we?
We verify all sales prior to approval: A sale is not complete until after we have verified that it was a valid sale without reversal or a hold by PayPal, GoogleCheckout, or the credit card issuer. We reserve the right to delay payment until this has been confirmed. Sales at the end of the month may be delayed until the next month for this reason.
In order for a sale to be credited to your account, the purchaser MUST use your affiliate link on a cookie-enabled computer. Purchases will not be assigned or reassigned to affiliates once the purchase is completed. Please do not ask for us to make an exception for you. Instead, view some of the tips on how to ensure your contacts are using your affiliate links.
We do not allow internal sales: An account must be ordered with billing information that does not match the affiliate’s information. If you are signing up an account for a client, please email us regarding this ASAP.
