Affiliate payments are calculated 15 days after month end. This allows Bushido to process any refunds within our Retail Return Policy. Any refunds will be deducted off the affiliate rewards commission. Commissions are paid out for the month only if a minimum of $100 net is achieved. If the minimum of $100 is not achieved, the amount is carried forward to the next month. Commissions are for products and excludes shipping and taxes.
