4. Affiliate URL
You will be issued a special URL once you become an approved member of the Widget Options Affiliate Program which will be unique to you and you only, and will allow you to be paid for affiliate referrals.
Affiliates will receive 20% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Affiliate links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product). Commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher Widget Options commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, but they will return thereafter to the regular 20% commission rate.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure order system.

Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links.

Widget Options pays affiliates via a PayPal account, provided to us when a member joins. If the PayPal email changes, it is the responsibility of the affiliate to notify the Affiliate Program to ensure proper commission payments. The payout email address can be updated within your affiliate area. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.
Payouts will be sent out at the beginning of each month, only if the affiliate requested a payout via the affiliate dashboard. 50 EUR is the minimum amount that affiliates need to have accumulated in order to be paid. This limit might be increased or decreased in the future.
