What are the commissions statuses?
A commission is the amount of income which the affiliate receives for selling a product through the affiliate’s site.
Pending: is the first status that a commission has. When a commission has the ‘pending’ status it means that an action has been finalized on the Merchant’s site by a user directed by the affiliate during the period of recurrence. The “pending” status will be modified when the advertiser is processing the respective commission.
Rejected: the commission is not eligible for payment and will not be paid to the affiliate. A commission may be rejected under the following circumstances:
- Returning the product, doubled item or any other clear error specified by the advertiser; user’s failure to pay or refunding the payment to the user.
- Affiliate’s failure to comply with the advertiser’s campaign terms.
- The affiliate’s use of any methods of fraudulent acquisition of the commission.
Accepted: the commission has been accepted by the advertiser and the amount of commission has been added to the affiliate account.
In payment request: the commission is included in a payment request but have not been yet paid to the affiliate.
Finalized: the commission has been paid to the affiliate.
