Depending on location, an affiliate may be subject to varying regulations. It is the affiliate's responsibility to know and follow any applicable regulations that apply to their site.Commission Rates, Qualifying Sales and Payment
As an affiliate, you can receive commissions for qualifying sales. Commission rates are determined on case by case basis, and are usually a flat rate on eligible items.
Qualifying sales are sales made on Chase and Scout’s website (www.chaseandscout.com
) by users that arrived on the Chase and Scout site by clicking an approved link on an Affiliate’s site (an “Affiliate Link”).
The Affiliate Program platform uses browser cookies to verify qualifying sales. The cookies are valid for thirty (30) 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 thirty (30) days of the user clicking the Affiliate Link, as long as the Affiliate was the last referrer. If a user clicks multiple Affiliate Links, the last Affiliate Link to be clicked prior to a qualifying sale will receive the commission. If the user’s last click prior to making the purchase was a paid channel, such as Google PPC, the purchase will not be a qualifying sale and an Affiliate will not receive a commission.
Commissions are calculated by multiplying the relevant commission rate and the price of the qualifying sales (excluding shipping costs and taxes). Commissions are not paid on sales that are canceled or returned.
Commissions are subject to review and other limitations for fraudulent activity. Chase and Scout reserves the right to withhold commissions if fraudulent activity is found.Program Restrictions
Affiliates that violate any of the following program restrictions may be suspended or removed from the Affiliate Program and may not receive commissions, in Chase and Scout’s sole discretion:

Any expiration dates should be clearly displayed next to the voucher codes, and codes should be removed or explicitly marked as expired after the expiration dates. Affiliates displaying expired codes without marking them as being expired may be suspended from the Affiliate Program.
