Does it cost anything to become a dQ Affiliate?
Absolutely not! There is no charge to apply nor is there any minimum sales requirement.
What percentage of the sale will I earn as commission?
Commission rates vary depending on the product (in-country vs. online courses) and the amount sold. For complete commission details, please read the online agreement.
How and when are commissions paid?
Once the student has fully paid and departed upon finishing their program, commissions payments will be distributed, by direct deposit or check, in the first week of the following month. There is a minimum commission payment of 100€. If you have not reached the minimum balance then your balance will continue to accrue until you have. If for any reason you would like to receive your commission payment for balances of less than 100€, the transfer fee will be deducted from your commission disbursement. The currency is calculated on the day of the transfer based on current exchange rates.
