Payment Threshold


A payment threshold refers to the least collected commission an affiliate must generate to receive a salary from an affiliate program.


Payment thresholds comprise of two factors:

(1) Minimum payment – $25, $50, $100, etc.

(2) Time interim – Monthly, quarterly, etc.

At a specific time interim, collected commissions for every affiliate are comparable to the smallest payment standard.

If an affiliate does not reach the least payment standard, the amount reimburses over to the next time interim. This process extends until the collected commission is higher than the least payment standard. When the commission reaches the expected level, the individual receives the payment after a specific number of days at the end of the time interim, as mentioned in the agreement.
