How Commissions are Calculated and Paid

Apply to be a Charter Member and get 50% commissions!

Once you are approved as a member of our Affiliate Program or Fundraiser Program for Schools & Groups, you'll qualify to receive a check each time your earnings reach $50. Checks are cut between the 1st and 5th of every month. Because Barnum Software offers our customers an unconditional, 30-day, money-back guarantee, there is a 30-day waiting period for every sale before your commission payment can be made.

For Regular CD Version Products

You receive 50% commission based on the “Subtotal,” which does not include shipping and tax. (Tax is collected only if the buyer is in California.)

For Deluxe Version Subscriptions

You receive a one-time commission. You will not receive commissions on future charges for a given subscriber.

For Deluxe Version 1-year and 2-year subscriptions, you receive a one-time 50% commission based on the “Subtotal.”

For Deluxe Version monthly subscriptions, the customer gets 2 months free due to the $5 discount. In lieu of your receiving 50% on this sale (the subtotal is $0!), you receive $5.

Example of how commissions are calculated and payments made:

Let’s say a customer orders the Levels 1, 2, and 3 Bundle CD. Your commission is $42.50. Then, let’s say the next order is for a 1-year subscription to the Deluxe version (regularly $19.95). The customer will get $5 off the order, for a subtotal of $14.95. Half of that is $7.50 (rounded up from $7.48).

Since the commission for these two orders equals $50, you would then be eligible to be paid for the commissions. After waiting 30 days from the date of the second order (to confirm that the customer is satisfied with the product), we would send you a check between the first and fifth day of the next month. We are not able to pay a commission on any returned orders, and money credited to your account does not accrue interest.
