What are Fishpond's Affiliate Terms?Payment of Commission
Commission of 5% is paid in all Qualifying Purchases, which occur when:
a) a customer clicks through to Fishpond from your site using your affiliate link, and
b) during a Session, the customer adds a product their cart and purchases that product; and
c) the product is then shipped to the customer.
A Session starts when a customer clicks on your affiliate link and ends when 24 hours elapses, the customer places an order, or the customer clicks on a different affiliate link and comes to Fishpond’s site.
Regardless of the above, the following are not Qualifying Purchases and will not earn any commission:
- any product that is added to a customer’s shopping cart after a Session has ended,
- any product that is cancelled or returned,
- any Fishpond gift vouchers,
- any Product purchase that is not correctly reported because the links from your site to Fishpond’s site are not properly formatted,
- any Product purchased by a customer who arrives on Fishpond’s site by a non-permitted marketing activity,
- any Product purchased for resale or commercial use, or - any Product purchased by you or on your behalf, including products you purchase through for yourself, friends, relatives, or associates.
Once a payment threshold of $20 is reached, payments will be made on a monthly basis, approximately 40 days after the end of the month using the method you have specified.
