Q: I am looking forward to using affiliate programs, but I have a small question… what does the commission threshold mean? Does it mean that the maximum commission is $100 dollars (for example)?
A: The commission threshold is the minimum accumulated commission an affiliate must earn to trigger payment from an affiliate program. This amount is different for different affiliate programs.
For instance, many affiliate programs will issue a commission check to an affiliate after the affiliate earns $25 in commission.
