We hold payments for a full 30 days to allow for processing, chargebacks, etc. For example, you would receive an affiliate payment for services rendered throughout the full month of August, on October 1st.
What if my affiliate payment is blocked, rejected or unclaimed?
On occasion affiliate payments are blocked or rejected by PayPal or are listed as unclaimed. Usually this is because PayPal does not do business in your country or the email address associated with the affiliate account is incorrect. As an affiliate it is your responsibility to make sure your email address on file with Meanderbug.com is valid and is able to receive payments from PayPal. Any and all payments unclaimed over 90 days are forfeited.
Can I earn commissions on my own purchases?
Sorry, but no. You will not receive any credit when making a purchase through your own affiliate link. You may receive an automatic notification from Meanderbug.com to let you know that a sale has taken place, but your affiliate payments will not include commissions for the sale.
