Commissions, Reporting, Getting Paid
What is your commission rate?
We have a tiered commission structure. The more sales that you generate, the more commission you can earn. The starting commission is 12%.
What is the average order size?
The average order size at Etchedwine.com is $75.00
Is there a minimum annual threshold?
There is no minimum sales level required to remain in the program, but you will not receive a commission check until you earn $50 in commission.
How does the affiliate program know when I should receive credit for an order?
The ShareASale.com system tracks a cookie that is automatically applied to the computer of a person who clicks on a banner or text link that has your affiliate ID number embedded within it. Each banner or link that you create through ShareASale is specifically tagged with your ShareASale ID number, letting us know that you deserve commission on the sales you send our way. You can access all of these banners and links by logging in your ShareASale Account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available.
These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links. You can test a link by copying and pasting it into your browser. If you are directed to the Etchedwine.com home page, your link is working. Do not copy and paste a landing page URL from our website (i.e. http://www.etchedwine.com/create) and confuse it for an affiliate link, since it will not track properly. All affiliate links begin with "http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfmB=…"
When will I be compensated?
After the transactions go through a review period of 30 days, you will receive consolidated payments. ShareASale will pay your monthly commission either by check or direct deposit around the 22nd of the following month. Your account needs to have a balance of $50 or more before the end of the month in order to receive a payment. Otherwise, it will continue to roll forward into the next month until the $50 minimum is reached and we can issue a payment.
How are these transactions tracked?
We outsource the management, tracking and reporting of our program, including links, to ShareASale. Provided you use the buttons, banners, and textual links provided, our site will recognize the affiliate that has generated traffic and will link qualified purchases back to that affiliate, accordingly.
ShareASale provides real-time tracking of your clicks, sales and commission. Please do not contact Etchedwine.com for this information, since we cannot access your account.
How do you treat product returns and affiliate sales?
If a customer referred by your site returns or cancels an order for refund, or if credit-card charges are reversed due to online credit-card fraud, Etchedwine.com can, at its discretion, debit your account for any commission earned on that transaction.
