When this person decides to buy a product, the script will look for this cookie and/or try to match their IP address to identify the affiliate who will be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your affiliate link may make a purchase later in time and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or the are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database. There is a cookie expiration set for a period of 21 days.

Commission Payment

Commissions deemed due and owed to you under the program will be paid to you directly by Prisum Coatings Canada Inc., after any holding period and in accordance with a regular payout cycle established by artisanenhancements.com. No commission will be paid for sales by you or anyone within your organization. The current holding period is 30 days after period ending. This is due to our 21-day return policy to protect our business from chargebacks and refunds.

Example:

You refer a customer on June 16. The period ending is the last day of each month. In this case, it’s June 30. The holding period is 30 days from June 30. So you will receive an affiliate cheque/deposit July 30.

The minimun payout amount for US based affiliates is USD $100.00 and Canada based or International based is CAD $100.00. For accounting purposes we will roll over affiliate commisions on a monthly basis until the amount listed above is reached. If you communicate that you would like to terminate your affiliate account then we will honour the amount owed and make the final payment for this amount.

 

Terms of the agreement

These terms will begin upon your signup with the affiliate program and will end when your affiliate account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by us at any time.

Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any change.
