Notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to your Account page, via email notification, phone call or other reasonable method.
  • Advertiser Terms: Upon admission to the program, Advertisers are required to define their own distinct Terms & Conditions. Publishers are required to follow said Terms and their agreement to said Terms is exclusive only to the Advertiser / Publisher relationship and Advertisers are solely responsible for the enforcement of their defined Terms. Such agreement is independent of any and all Terms & Conditions enforced by the Sales & Orders Terms & Conditions.

  • Leads Definition: Commissions paid out solely based on when a site visitor completes a form or performs an action other than a Sale or Click
  • Clicks Definition: Commissions paid out solely based on clicks on your products where the Publisher was the source
  • Source Tracking: All commission types are tracked via the source Publisher using Urchin Tracking Modules (UTMs) attached to the URL of the source. Each Publisher is assigned its own custom tracking parameters by our app. Sales & Orders then utilizes Google Analytics to track back the source of the transaction reported in your account.
  • Source Tracking Provider: Sales & Orders uses Google Analytics solely to track back the source of a given transaction reported in your account. Advertisers may not choose any other tracking provider. Subscription to the Affiliate Marketing Network for Advertisers automatically enables Sales & Orders access to Google Analytics for use in transaction tracking. Sales & Orders reserves the sole right to change or adjust the Source Tracking Platform at any time with or without advance notice.
  • Commission Payouts Made: Payouts are made by Advertisers to Publishers based on an Advertiser's set commission(s) structure.

  • S&O Transaction Fee: Sales & Orders charges Advertisers a transaction processing fee totaling but not exceeding 20% (excludes Tax and/or Shipping) of the expected payout, but only when the payout exceeds $20 USD. In such an event, the fee will be held until such a time that the payout exceeds $20 USD. This fee is charged as "on top of" the expected payout to a given Publisher. Example: Your expected payout to your Publisher is $100 > You are charged a total of $120 or 20% on top of the expected payout per our transaction fee.
  • Payout Calendar: Payouts from Advertisers to Publishers are taken every Friday of a given week after a specific transaction occurs, but only 7 days after a transaction and when the expected payout exceeds $20 USD, with respect to an Advertiser's choice to Postpone or Reject a payout.
