How do I track performance?

Your Dashboard contains all of your metrics. You can see clicks, conversions, your conversion rate and your earnings on the Performance tab. You can see your earnings details (gross, refunds, net, etc.) on the Payments tab.

How are my sales tracked?

Our affiliate links contain unique identifiers, allowing us to track anyone directed from your website. We pay you roughly 30 days after the end of the month in which we receive payment from the client. For example, we will pay you for January’s sales at the start of March.
We have a $100 payment minimum, so if you have less than $100 in accrued rewards, payment will not be made that month and your rewards will carry over to the following month or months until you exceed $100

Do you accept other payouts methods than PayPal?

No – we only accept PayPal for payouts.

Why can’t I find out the revenue from each individual client?

We do not provide this statistic as it would be a violation of client privacy.

What happens if I want to dispute the amount of my payout?

For any payment disputes, contact help@wordpress.com with the full details of the issue.
