2. Commission Rates, Qualifying Sales and Payment

As an Affiliate, you are eligible to receive commissions for qualifying sales through Authorised Channels (see below). Commission rates are determined on a case-by-case basis and may vary based on a variety of factors, such as type of site and content. For current commission rates, click here.

Your Affiliate application through the Affiliates Programme platform must specify the channels on which you wish to place Affiliate Links. If after you are approved as an Affiliate you wish to use additional channels that have not been approved, you must obtain Onhighstreet.co.uk approval before using such channels. Onhighstreet.co.uk will not approve telemarketing/text message/SMS marketing as an Authorised Channel. Onhighstreet.co.uk may, in its sole discretion, disqualify an Authorised Channel if it determines that it no longer complies with the requirements of this Affiliate Policy or is otherwise no longer appropriate for Affiliate Links.

Qualifying sales are sales made on https://onhighstreet.com.co.uk (the “Onhighstreet.co.uk Site”) by users that arrived on the Onhighstreet.co.uk Site by clicking an Affiliate Link on an Authorised Channel and pay by credit or debit card, or any of the methods set forth in the Onhighstreet.co.uk Payments Policy. Affiliate Links, including URLs and banners or other creative assets (collectively, the “Creative Assets”), can be found on the Affiliates Programme platform. To receive a commission, Affiliates must (a) use only the Creative Assets and Affiliate Links provided by Onhighstreet.co.uk, (b) only use the Creative Assets on an Authorised Channel, and (c) not alter any of the text links or Creative Assets made available through the Affiliates Programme platform. Affiliates are also requested not to hardcode Affiliate Links into their sites, so that any updates to Creative Assets take immediate effect.

The Affiliates Programme platform uses browser cookies to verify qualifying sales. The cookies (i) on the Onhighstreet.co.uk website are valid for thirty (30) days and (ii) on the Onhighstreet.co.uk application (the “App”) are valid for seven (7) days (collectively, the “Cookie Period”). Commissions are paid on qualifying sales made during the Cookie Period that originated on an Authorised Channel. This means that an Affiliate can receive a commission for a qualifying sale if the sale was made within thirty (30) days, or seven (7) days in the case of an sale made via the App, of the user clicking the Affiliate Link in an Authorised Channel, as long as the Affiliate was the last referrer. If a user clicks multiple Affiliate Links, the last Affiliate Link to be clicked prior to a qualifying sale will receive the commission. If the user’s last click prior to making the purchase was a paid channel, such as, for example, via Google PPC or if a paid click goes directly to an affiliate link, the purchase will not be a qualifying sale and an Affiliate will not receive a commission.

Commissions are calculated by multiplying the relevant commission rate and the price of the qualifying sales (excluding postage costs and taxes). Commissions are not paid on sales that are cancelled, refunded, returned, or on any transaction that results in a chargeback. Commissions are subject to review and other limitations for fraudulent activity. Onhighstreet.co.uk reserves the right to withhold commissions for any legitimate reason. You are solely responsible for any taxes that may be due in connection with your participation in Onhighstreet.co.uk Affiliates Programme.

At any time, Onhighstreet.co.uk may with or without notice change, suspend or discontinue an Affiliate Link or remove, alter, or modify any graphic or banner ad submitted by Onhighstreet.co.uk through the Affiliates Programme platform. Affiliate agrees to promptly implement any request from Onhighstreet.co.uk to remove, alter or modify any Affiliate Link, graphic, or banner ad submitted by Onhighstreet.co.uk through the Affiliates Programme platform.
