. Setting up an affiliate account and earning commission
To set up an Affiliate Account please fill in the online sign-up form on our affiliate scheme website: https://petgeneticslab.refersion.com/
. Once approved we will provide you with an account with the tools and links needed to earn your commission. Each 'click' to our website using unique links associated with your affiliate account will be registered on your Affiliate Account using a cookie which is set on the user's computer, and for each sale made within 60 days of the 'click' you will earn commission at the rate set out in your account. We pay commission on the same price of our products and no commission will be paid on any delivery charges or VAT paid by the customer. Payments
We pay our Affiliates through PayPal, so you will need to have a PayPal account set up in order to receive payments. Please ensure that the PayPal account listed on your account is correct so that we can make payments to you when they are due. If the address is incorrect then payments will not reach you, so it is your responsibility to update your PayPal email address if you change it.
Affiliate payment dates are the last Friday in each month. All affiliate payments are paid gross. It is your responsibility to declare and pay any tax or insurance due on these payments and you indemnify PGL against any claims, losses, damages or any other liabilities which arise as a result of you not declaring and paying those sums.
