This section shows the pending commissions, delayed commissions, locked commissions, paid commission, total sales and total leads. Commission will go into pending status for the length of the locking period which typically is 30 days. It is put in pending status in case you must make an adjustment to certain transactions. Once out of pending status, it will go into locked commission status until the money is paid. Once the money is paid it goes into paid commission. Delayed commission occurs when there is a problem with payment such as the advertiser does not have enough funds to make a payment. You can view this month and last month’s status.
Pending Commissions: Pending Commissions are the value of commissions that are currently pending, and will remain pending until the end of your locking period. Commissions go into pending in case you must adjust transactions due to returns, partial returns, or even fraud. Once your locking period is over, the commissions will enter the Locked Comm. status, and eventually be moved to paid. Locking period is the amount of time in which a transaction is eligible to be corrected or reversed by the advertiser before a payout for that transaction is dispersed.
Locked Commissions: Locked commissions are commissions that are no longer able to be corrected. Once locked, these commissions will eventually be paid out.
Delayed Commissions: Delayed commission occurs when there is a problem with payment such as the advertiser does not have enough funds to make a payment at the given time.
Paid Commissions: Paid commissions are commissions that are no longer pending or locked, and have been dispersed to the publishers in your program who have driven sales.
Total Sales: This is the total number of sales that your program has generated in the current or previous month.
Total Leads: The total amount related to certain transactions, such as in the case where a publisher is paid out for a specific action, such as filling out a form, online registration, or subscription, publishers are paid a flat dollar amount.
