Affiliate program frequently asked questions

When will I get paid?

Payouts occur on the 15th of each month, or earlier if the 15th falls on a weekend.

I was just paid, but under Affiliate Program, I still see pending payouts. Why?

Only eligible registrations 15 days or older are eligible for payout. Any registrations made more recently than 15 days will be paid out the next period. Thus, if the 15th falls on a weekend and you're paid on the 13th, registrations from the last few days of the prior month may not be paid out until next month.

Am I paid for renewals?

Not at this time. Currently, only first year registrations and value-added products such as email hosting are eligible for payouts.

Some of my domains weren't paid out at all. Why?

Only approved registrations will be eligible for payout.  Examples of domain name registrations that would not qualify as eligible include, but are not limited to: those made out of coercion, verified via a stolen credit card. Additionally, "gaming the system" is prohibited. Many registrations originating from the same person or group, domains registered with the primary intention of claiming commission payments without a bona fide intent to use the Top-Level Domain, or suspicious domains of any type will not be paid out. Whether or not a domain name qualifies as eligible will be determined by Porkbun in its sole, reasonable discretion.
