Payments are made via PayPal and it is the responsibility of the affiliate to have the correct payment email address in their affiliate account.
We use mass payments so that you do not have to incur any fees on your payments.
Refunds & Suspicious Activity - 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 purchase to make sure they are not refunded (this is rare, and handled on a case by case basis).
We do not pay affiliates a commission of their own orders if purchased through their own affiliates link. Ex: I clicked my affiliate so my 90 day cookie is locked in, I then go to Being Creative® Designs website to purchase a printable to sell on my own blog. In my affiliate portal I see the purchase I just made as one of my orders with a commission from my own purchase.
These orders will not be approved and we recommend clearing your cookies before making your next purchase. If this happens on a recurring basis your account could be terminated without warning.
We will pay a commission for an order placed within the cookie life of 90 days, unless the customer makes a purchase after clicking on another affiliate 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.
Cookie life begins when a user clicks your affiliate link and enters our site. The commission is only payable if it can be tracked to you with your affiliate id. We cannot track referrals for users who do not accept cookies or if they delete our cookies.
Recurring Payments / Payment Plans
If a customer who has used your affiliate link makes a purchase that has a recurring payment or payment plan spread across multiple months, you will receive a commission for all of the subsequent payments on that specific product.
