activities of affiliates, to make sure that there is no
suspicious activity. ALL checks are reviewed before they are
sent, and fraudulent users will NOT be paid ANY commissions.
The fact is that most people who attempt to fraud merchants,
are not very good at it, and are easy to spot, catch, and
terminate from the network. We have a ZERO tolerance policy
for fraud, no exceptions, no second chances.

on the 20th of each month. These payments are made to those
affiliates who have reached a $25 minimum BEFORE the end of

March 20th. If the affiliate did not reach the $25 minimum
until March 1st, those commissions would be paid on April
20th. We have to allow time to review sales and leads in the
case of returns, invalid credit cards, or even fraud.
