2.3 Qualifying sales on JadoPado marketplace are sales made on www.JadoPado.com (the “JadoPado marketplace Site”) to users that arrived on the JadoPado marketplace Site by clicking an approved link on an Affiliate’s site (an “Affiliate Link”). Qualifying sales on hotcake are sales made on www.hotcake.io (the “hotcake Site”) to users that arrived on the hotcake Site by clicking an Affiliate Link.
2.4 Affiliate links, including URLs and banners or other creative assets, can be found on the Affiliates Programme platform. Affiliates may not alter any of the text links or creative assets made available through the Affiliates Programme platform in order to receive payment. Affiliates are also requested not to hardcode Affiliate Links into their sites, so that any updates to creative assets take immediate effect.
2.5 The Affiliates Programme platform uses browser cookies to verify qualifying sales. The cookies are valid for ten (10) days (the “Cookie Period”). Commissions are paid on qualifying sales made during the Cookie Period. This means that an Affiliate can receive a commission for a qualifying sale if the sale was made within ten (10) days of the user clicking the Affiliate Link.
2.6 If a user clicks on multiple Affiliate Links, the last Affiliate Link to be clicked prior to a qualifying sale or signing up a seller will receive the commission.
2.7 Commissions are calculated by multiplying the relevant commission rate and the price of the qualifying sales (excluding shipping costs and taxes) or are based on a fixed fee. Commissions are not paid on sales that are canceled or returned.
2.8 Commissions are subject to review and other limitations for fraudulent activity. JadoPado reserves the right to withhold commissions if fraudulent activity is found.
2.9 A withholding period of sixty (60) days will apply to each qualifying sale before it is eligible for payout.
