Summary

Qualified Revenues are subject to the limitations described in the Standard Commission Structure and Important Note sections below. We also may offer commissions in the form of bounties or other special offers as described in the “Special Offers and Promotions” section below.

The program’s standard commissions fee structure is defined in the following Standard Commissions Structure section. The commission rates you may earn will vary depending on the category of products that are shipped, streamed, or downloaded (as applicable) that constitute a Qualified Action and/or Qualified Sale. We will determine the classification of products in each category set forth in the Standard Commissions Structure section below or otherwise described on this page. If no categories are set forth or are otherwise described on this page, then the commission rates described in the Standard Commission Schedule apply to all products in our store.
