Commission RatesQualifying Sales and payments an affiliate, you can receive commissions for qualifying sales. Commission rates are determined on case by case basis and may vary based on a variety of factors such as type of site and content. Qualifying sales are sales made on Tiesta Tea by users that arrived on the Tiesta Tea site by clicking an approved link on an Affiliate’s site (an “Affiliate Link”) and pay by credit or debit card. Affiliate links, including URLs and banners or other creative assets, can be found on the Brand Ambassador Program platform. Brand Ambassador may not alter any of the text links or creative assets made available through the Brand Ambassador Program platform in order to receive payment. Commissions are paid on qualifying sales made during the Cookie Period. This means that an Affiliate can receive a commission for a qualifying sale if the sale was made within thirty days of the user clicking the Affiliate Link, as long as the Affiliate was the last referrer. If a user clicks multiple Affiliate Links, the last Affiliate Link to be clicked prior to a qualifying sale will receive the commission. If the user’s last click prior to making the purchase was a paid channel, such as Google PPC, the purchase will not be a qualifying sale and an Affiliate will not receive a commission. Commissions are calculated by multiplying the relevant commission rate and the price of the qualifying sales (excluding shipping costs and taxes). Commissions are not paid on sales that are canceled or returned. Commissions are subject to review and other limitations for fraudulent activity. Tiesta Tea reserves the right to withhold commissions if fraudulent activity is found.3.
