We use a third party affiliate tracking system powered by ClickBank (the world's largest provider of digital products). They handle all affiliate payments with a streamlined system to ensure you will get paid on time, every time. You can also promote other ebooks in the ClickBank program and receive a single payment for all programs – it makes it easy to promote a selection of ebooks, customized to the audience of your website.
ClickBank makes payments weekly or fortnightly to all webmasters who have reached the $10 minimum (or your selected minimum above $10) with payments by either paper check for all affiliates or direct bank transfer for high earning affiliates.
Payments are sent every 2nd Wednesday for the pay period ending 2 weeks prior to allow for security checking and fraud prevention. If you are a high earning affiliate you are eligible for weekly payments.
The Handcrafter's Companion pays one of the highest percentage percentage payout allowed by ClickBank (66%), which means that you get paid $17.83 for most sales (We also sometime promote related products at slightly higher or lower price points. Whatever happens, you always get 66%).
Our advice is to keep it simple.
