[Referral Commissions]

How much money do I earn per sale?

You will earn a 15 percent commission for each sale resulting in a referral from your website. For example, if you refer a customer whose total product purchase is $400, you will earn $60. We have one of the highest affiliate commission in our industry. We use a third party service ( to monitor your sales and will monthly pay out your commissions once they exceed $25.

Why does UltraCart wait 60 days to pay an affiliate?

We wish to pay affiliate referral fees on sales that are net of returns and has a 30 day return policy. After the 30 day return policy has passed, we need a standard 30 days for processing returns and issuing payments.

We instituted this policy because, we've had problems from small affiliates that referred orders to, only to have all of the merchandise returned after we have already sent out the referral commission payment. Often these affiliates never referred any subsequent orders to, so that we could not use future referral fees to offset the ineligible referral fee that we had already paid.

After I refer a customer to, for how long will I get credit for their sales?

You will receive a commission for all sales made within 30 days of the last click-through from your site. This period is also known as the cookie duration, since Special link tracking is done through placing a browser cookie on the user's computer.

The affiliate reporting page shows that I made a commission last month, but I didn't receive a payment.

If your outstanding referral fee balance is less than $25, we will we will hold those referral fees until the total amount due is at least $25.
