You can also choose to receive payments in the form of store credit and use it towards the purchase of an AKRacing product with an additional 1-time discount.
How do I earn other perks and bonuses from AKRacing?

Eligibility for additional perks and bonuses, including but not limited to free products, merchandise, rewards, and show invitations, will be determined on a case by case basis.
How are commissions paid?
Commissions are paid on monthly net sales (excluding sales tax and order insurance (Route)), and do not include returns. Commissions are typically paid in the 1st week of each month with a 2-month lock period. For example, if you generate sales in January, you will be paid in the 1st week of March. The 2-month lock period is in place to ensure there are no returns or fraud from the sales generated.
What about product returns?
AKRacing Envoy Program has a 2-month lock period in between the sales and payouts to prevent returns and fraud on generated sales.
If a customer returns a product, requests a refund, cancels an order, or if the payment is reversed due to a chargeback after the 2-month lock period, your account will be debited for any commission earned on that transaction.
How do I keep track of my performance?
Once your application for the Envoy Program is approved, you will be able to sign into the affiliate area, where you will see real-time performance reports. To ensure that all transactions are properly tracked and credited, use only the pre-generated affiliate link, not direct links.
