The financial cycle consists of two months. If, in one month, you have exceeded one of the thresholds, you will receive the commission percentage increase two months after. This new commission will affect the reservations made in this new month.
Example 1: In January you have 100 checked-out (‘stayed’) bookings. Based on the two month rule this means that all created bookings in March will receive a 30% commission (here it doesn't matter when the booking is stayed, just as long as it did in the end). If the booking is stayed in August but booked in March, you will receive the 30% commission based on the previously mentioned example.
In this example, the affiliate partner was paid in March 2015 for reservations checked out in January 2015.
The example includes two commission amounts: 30% and 35%.
Commission is always calculated based on the percentage bracket the affiliate partner was in at the time the booking was made.
In this case, 12 bookings were made when the commission percentage was 30%. The remaining 99 bookings were made when the partner was on a 35% commission percentage. This is regardless of the commission percentage the affiliate partner is receiving the month we send the payment (i.e 35%).
