Receiving your monthly affiliate commission is a very important part of being a Sigma Affiliate. The following information will help you receive your payments on time, and hopefully clear up any questions you have regarding our payment process.
If you would like your affiliate payments made via PayPal, the only information we require is your email address associated with your PayPal account. If we do not have this information from you already, you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be happy to update your account!
If you do not have a PayPal account, you can sign-up for one at http://www.paypal.com. It is a completely free service to use. There is no minimum amount of commission in order to receive your PayPal payment.
If you are not interested in creating a PayPal account or are unable to establish one due to country restrictions, please let us know and we will update your account to receive gift certificates. This means you will receive your monthly commission in the form of a gift certificate to be used on the Sigma website only. At this time, these are the only two payment options available to Sigma affiliates.
If your account is setup to receive a Gift Certificate, you will receive an email from Sigma on payment day with your gift certificate code to be used on the Sigma website only. To setup your account to receive gift certificates, simply email email@example.com to request the gift certificate option. Many affiliates choose to receive their payments as a gift certificate to purchase product, or if PayPal is not an option for them.
There is a $5 USD commission minimum for Gift Certificates. If your commission is less than $5 USD, the balance will accumulate until you have reached $5 USD.
You can check your commissions at anytime by logging into your account on the Sigma website. Click on Visit My Affiliate Page at the end of your options table.
On your affiliate page, you will be able to see your commission table which looks like this. From the dropdown menu, choose the month and year you would like to view:
Your commission total will be in the bottom row under My Commission. If you have earned any sub-affiliate commission, it will also be shown here.
Payments are made at the beginning of every month. A Sigma affiliate representative will contact you 3-4 days before and the day of payments if we do not have a payment option on file. If we do not hear back from you within a few days following payments, you will automatically receive your commission in the form of a gift certificate.
If your account is setup to receive a payment through PayPal, you will receive a message directly from PayPal regarding your account balance. Remember, there are no minimum commission requirements to receive money to your PayPal account. If you choose to receive a gift certificate, there is a $5 USD minimum. Once the minimum is reached, an email will be sent with your gift certificate code on the next payment day to use on the Sigma website.
We hope this post was informational and helps you understand our payment process a little better. Please remember to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred payment option so we can pay you efficiently and on time!
