For promoting Digital Duck products, plugins and services, Digital Duck will pay the affiliate a percentage commission of the total price (excluding tax) of any WordPress plugin sold to a third party who purchases from thedigitalduck.co.uk through a referral link.
The commission will total 30% of the final price of purchase before tax and after any discounts have been applied. The percentage is subject to changes by Digital Duck at any time. Digital Duck will notify affiliates of upcoming changes via email.
Commissions will be paid for on the initial 1-year payment, to purchase a license for one of the Digital Duck plugins. It does not apply to renewals of the license.
No commission will be paid on purchases that are refunded or subject to chargebacks, in the event that a commission has already been paid out to the affiliate for a transaction that is later refunded then the commission already paid for will be deducted from future payouts.
No commissions will be paid for an affiliates own purchases, for example, if they buy a plugin using their own affiliate links.
Digital Duck will keep accurate and up-to-date records of the data used to calculate the Commission owed to the Affiliate. The relevant totals will be made available to the Affiliate via the Affiliate dashboard on thedigitalduck.co.uk.
Commissions will be paid the first week of every month throughout the year. Payment will be made by PayPal to the account associated with the payout email address which the affiliate can specify from within the affiliate dashboard.
