How long does it take to see my commissions?
We approve commissions once Paypal finalizes payment. (i.e. money is transferred and any refund window closes)
Is there a limit to how much I can earn?
No. There are no limits in place. You can earn as much as you can deliver with our affiliate program.
When Do I Get Paid?
We pay affiliates on the first of each month.
I earned a commission, why haven't I been paid?
Each month, we pay affiliates who have reached our minimum $50.00 account balance. If your account balance hasn't met the payout guideline of $50.00, it will carry over from month-to-month until it does. The first month it hits the $50.00 balance mark, you will be paid. Note that this refers to your 'earned' account balance. Signing bonuses and other credits do not count toward the payout threshold of $50 but will be added to the payment itself. Thus when you earn your first $50 in commissions you will receive a payment of $60 ($50 earned + $10 signing bonus)
Can you be an affiliate if you live outside of the US?
Please refer to PayPal's policy to ensure you are eligible to receive payment if you reside outside of the United States.
Do you report income to the IRS?
Commissions paid by Steel Dawn to any affiliate are paid as an independent contractor service and may be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as 1099 income. Affiliates are expected to adhere to governing laws applicable to income earned through this program.
If you are paid more than $600 in commissions in a calendar year, Steel Dawn may send you a Form 1099 and also report the earnings to the IRS. If you are paid less than $600, you may still be required to report the income, even though no 1099 was issued.
