Payment, Commissions, and Tracking

Explore our guide for answers to frequently asked questions about payments, commissions, and tracking.

How are commissions calculated and paid under the Zencastr Affiliate Program?

Affiliates earn a base standard commission rate of 20% of eligible products. Commissions are paid via PayPal in USD, with a minimum payout threshold of $50. Payments are made 30 days after the sale of an eligible product.

How much can I earn?



Note: Remember that the commission is a one-time payment based on the initial sale for annual plans and is paid out for consecutive monthly renewals up to 12 months for monthly plans, provided the referral remains active.

These calculations give you an idea of the potential earnings you could make as a Zencastr Affiliate based on the different subscription plans that customers purchase using your unique referral link. The actual earnings will depend on the number of successful referrals and the type of plans purchased by customers through your affiliate link.

How often are payouts made?

Payouts are processed on the 15th of every month. Your earnings will reflect any refunds within a 30-day period from the time a sale is made. Please be sure to fill out your PayPal information in your Rewardful dashboard. Login here to verify your information.

What does the 60-day cookie window mean?

The 60-day cookie window refers to the duration during which a referral is tracked and attributed to you as an affiliate after someone clicks on your unique referral link. Specifically:

  • When a user clicks on your unique referral link to Zencastr, a cookie is placed in their web browser.

  • This cookie remains active for 60 days.

  • If the user subscribes to Zencastr within this 60-day period, the system recognizes the cookie and attributes the sale to you as the affiliate.

  • You earn a commission for this referral, even if the user doesn't subscribe immediately after clicking your link but completes the purchase within the 60-day window.

In summary, the 60-day cookie window allows you to receive credit for referrals over an extended period, giving your audience ample time to explore Zencastr before making a purchase while still ensuring you earn commissions for qualifying referrals.

What does the 12-month continuous commission mean?

We provide excellent benefits if your referral becomes a long-term user. As long as your referrals remain subscribed, you'll continue to earn monthly commissions for up to 12 months for monthly paid plans. However, if your referral signs up for a 12-month plan, you earn a commission for the entire sale amount upfront, and you will not receive monthly commissions thereafter.

What happens when a referral is canceled?

When a referral is canceled or downgraded to a free tier within the 30-day window, any earned commission may be reversed, as per the Zencastr Affiliate Program terms and conditions. For example, if the customer stays on a paid plan for one month, you'll earn a 20% commission on that sale. However, if they downgrade in the second month, you won't receive further commissions for the remaining 12-month continuous earning period.

For inquiries about canceled referrals, contact [email protected].

My Rewardful Dashboard shows a conversion, but it’s not showing up on my Commissions page.

If you see a discrepancy between the conversion displayed in your dashboard and the Commissions page, it's possible that the user you referred to may have downgraded their plan within the 30-day cancellation and refund window.

You can review the plan type of your referrals on the Zencastr referral dashboard here: Zencastr Referrals. If a user downgrades to a non-paid plan within the 30-day window, no commission would be earned for that referral.
