Any customer discounts gained with the use of coupons created by the Partner will be applied after commissions are tallied. Should you choose to discount or give away items from your shop, a 20% handling fee from the prices listed on the website is still applicable.
Commissions, sales status and payouts
You can always check your sales status and commission earnings on your partner dashboard. Should you have any problems with that, you’re welcome to check in with us for a status.
