We will process product orders placed by customers who follow a Special Link from your website to our Website. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and returns, and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products using Special Links from your website to our Website and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will be eligible to earn commission on certain product sales in accordance with Sections 7 and 8 below. For a product sale to be eligible for commission credits, the customer must follow a Special Link or coupon code (one time use, first customer purchase) from your website or social platform to our Website, select and purchase the product using our automated ordering system, accept delivery of the product at the shipping destination, and remit full payment to us. As a condition precedent to the right to receive any commission hereunder, you agree that you will cash or deposit any commission check sent to your address of record within 120 days of the date of the check. Any failure to cash or deposit any such check within such period will cause any commission obligations associated with such check to be void ab initio.
7. Earning Commission
Standard Commission Credit Rate - You will accrue commission based on Qualifying Revenues according to commission credit rates established by us from time to time. "Qualifying Revenues" are revenues derived by us from our sales of products, after reduction for discounts, coupons and/or gift card redemptions, as a result of purchases made by visitors to our Website that come directly through a Special Link on your website. "Qualifying Revenues" do not include gift card purchases, shipping & handling, gift-wrapping or taxes. For all affiliates, the commission rate starts at 10% of Qualifying Revenues and increases up to 20% based on the amount of commission accrued.
The Program uses a 60-day cookie. This means that if a visitor to your website clicks through a Special Link to our Website, you will be eligible for commission credits on Qualifying Revenues related to purchases made by such visitor within 60 days of such visitor’s click on the Special Link on your website. The Program also employs a last-cookie principal. This means that we will credit a sale to a different affiliate, Protekt Products Sales channel or Protekt Products Website if after a visitor clicks through a Special Link on your website the visitor clicks on a Special Link from such other affiliate’s website, an Protekt Products-sponsored advertisement or a link on one Protekt Products website that will take the visitor to another Protekt Products website. As soon as a sale is made, the cookie duration ends.
8. Commission Payment
Affiliates shall receive a commission for referring authorized sales via links provided by Protekts affiliates program to Protekt Products website. The customer must make a purchase by clicking the link on the affiliate’s website within 60 days of the initial click-through.
All affiliate payments will be made on the first Monday of every month after an affiliate has been approved for 30 days. For example.. If an affiliate gets approved on the 15th of April, their first affiliate payment will be issued on the first Monday in June. The commission is based on the net price (net of any discounts provided to the customer) of the product that is sold.
Commission rates may be changed at any time by Protekt Products and current applicable commission rates may be viewed by logging into an affiliates account.
It is the affiliates ongoing responsibility to determine whether a payout associated with any particular link provided has been discontinued by Protekt Products. Protekt Products is not responsible for any lost revenue or incurred costs as a result of an affiliates using an invalid link.
The commission is paid only on links that can be tracked and reported by Protekt Products affiliates program systems powered by Refersion. In order for Reversion to properly track any referral, the customer must have their cookies enabled on their web browser. Protekt Products is not responsible for any lost revenue or incurred costs as a result of customers not having their cookies enabled at the time they make a purchase. Refunded payments do not qualify for commission fees. To the extent a customer receives a refund, no commission shall be paid to the affiliates. We reserve the right to reverse commissions due to refunded payments and erroneous subscription crediting.
Commissions are paid out via PayPal. It is your responsibility to ensure your PayPal account details are accurate and up-to-date in order to receive payment.
For Standard Affiliates, payments will be made via Paypal. In order for the affiliate to be paid on approved commissions, the affiliate will need to link their Paypal account email into Refersion under > Dashboard > Settings > Payment Settings.

Customers who buy products through the Program will be deemed to be customers of Protekt Products. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers.
