There is one type of affiliate program with Shark Research Unit: affiliate program
For a sale to generate a commission to an affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit a non-refundable USD750 deposit payment for the product. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured affiliate links (individually supplied to each affiliate). Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
Payments to affiliates will only be made following requests by affiliates via a formal portal that is accessible on the Affiliate dashboard. Affiliates are entitled to accumulate commissions and commissions will not expire.
An affiliate can request a payment when their balance reaches a minimum balance of $200 USD. Payments can be requested once every 30 days. Payment processing can take up to 5 working days from the date it was requested. There are two types of payments that can be made in the affiliate program
Method 1. Payment into the affiliate PayPal account (as determined by email address supplied by an affiliate). Any fee applied by PayPal will be for the affiliate account.
Methods 2. Affiliates can transfer due commissions to their outstanding account with Africa Media. This is typically used to offset costs of upcoming participation of the affiliate in an Shark Research Unit Internship program.
