You'll learn that having your Visa/Mastercard paid is preferable to being
paid by check.
Checks: there are two restrictions. First, there's a 30 day "buffer zone" -
if you make the sale on the 15th of the month, your check won't be sent until the
second payment date following (6 weeks later), in case the customer asks for a
refund within the 30 day guarantee period. Second, the minimum amount of any check
is $35 (or £22). If you've generated less than $35, your commission is carried
over to the next month.
Visa/Mastercard: no such restrictions apply if you choose the credit card
method, provided you've got past the "first time payment rule". We're talking
instant payment! Your card will be credited with your commission at the same
time the customer is charged (within 48 hours of the order being placed). There's
no $35 minimum, either.
American Express: sorry, at the moment we're not allowed to pay AmEx cards,
but we hope to be able to soon.
Other: we're open to any reasonable request for payment methods, just ask.
On the rare occasion the customer asks for a refund, we must also reclaim your commission.
In these cases you'll be kept informed of what's happening.
