Through the affiliate tracking system website, you will have access to the information that we use to determine commissions we owe you.

Kshop reserves the right to increase or decrease commission rates from time to time as it sees fit.

If a referral returns a product or if the referral requests a chargeback on the purchase, you will not receive a commission. In such cases, Kshop returns all money to the referral. Because of the return period for all our products, and because of periodic processing, We may hold your commission payout for a period of up to 7 days.
