We want you to be happy and motivated to work with us as an affiliate. That’s why we offer $30 for each sale. For us, a sale represents when a customer actually pays for something, most of the time for the Pixelgrade Club subscription but not restricted to. Please bear in mind that the free trial period (no matter the timeframe; today is 14-days, but it could be shorter or longer) is off the table since no dollars are being exchanged.
For example: if a customer registers for the free trial, but doesn’t pay for the first month for whatever reasons (drops the order, adds wrong credit card details, etc.) we don’t consider it a purchase.
On the opposite side, if a customer finishes the free trial, pays for at least a month and asks for a refund, you will get your money ($30). You are not responsible for the refund reasons, and you will get paid for bringing him on board.
As said previously, we make the payouts on the 15th of the month, no matter if you have to get $30 or $3K. We keep our promise and we pay your money at the same time we pay our salaries to treat everyone equal. However, we reserve the right to have a withhold period as follows: 30 days for both plans (monthly and yearly). This means that only 30 days after the sale commission is good to go.
You can always check the amount of money you generated through Pixelgrade Affiliate Program by log into pixelgrade.com/affiliate-area. You have access to all the information you need to be up to date with your affiliate activity.
All sums are expressed in USD, not that we have anything with Canadian, Australian or other types of dollars.
That’s who we are today and that’s all we can do. We don’t know if it’s generous or way too low for your expectations, but what we do know is that we are transparent, hard working and open-minded people. When we’ll get great results and we’ll be able to do more for you we will definitely find other ways to reward your effort.
Best of luck, and start growing your pile of cash, buddy! 💰
