Behind the IDAutomation Barcode Affiliate Program

The IDAutomation Affiliate Program uses tracking cookies to determine sales that were referred from an affiliate. If multiple affiliates are involved in the same sale, the most recent referrer is given credit. IDAutomation will send a report via email on request and a check or PayPal payment in USD to all affiliates that generate sales. Payment will be made approximately 30 days after each quarter (every 3 months) for commissions earned in that quarter. The ability for affiliates to receive reports in real-time will be added to the system at a future date.
