1. Program Structure and Payments
Currently, when a qualifying purchase is made with a brand ambassador’s affiliate link, the brand ambassador will receive 14% Commission on that sale. Commission is calculated after taxes and discounts are applied. The “cookie” of the link lasts in the customer’s browser up to 30 days provided the cookies are not cleared, meaning that the brand ambassador can potentially earn commissions from qualified purchases up to 30 days, not just within one session using the link.
Brand ambassadors will not receive commission on any purchases that are returned and/or refunded. To ensure this term, Be Your Own You will pay out commissions to ambassadors around every 60 days, accommodating for the 30-day return policy and processing.
The Pay Out Schedule Will Be As Follows
