1. Affiliate Approvals
JD Williams are happy to work with all types of affiliate promotion and encourage all interested sites to apply. In particular we are looking for sites which are aesthetically pleasing and best reflect our brand values. We do not work with sites that display content that may be deemed pornographic or offensive.
Validations will happen once every week; however sales will not be able to be validated until after two weeks after the sales date to track any returns that may occur. E.g. If you generate a sale on the 1st October, this sale will not be validated before 14th October. Returns, credit reversals etc will then be processed and commission correctly allocated based on the above commission rates.
Please note that a deletion rate will occur on this programme as JD Williams will not be paying out for sales that are returned within their two week return policy. Deletion rate currently is running at 25% for the affiliate programme as a whole.
