Playasia Affiliate Program - Rates & Withdrawal Options

Generated orders. When will I earn commission?

Generated orders are the key factor of the Playasia Affiliate Program. You’ll earn a commission once a purchase has been completed through your personalized affiliate link. You will also be able to monitor several statistics in your customer account, including the number of generated orders and the number of visits from your affiliate links.

We differentiate between two kinds of purchases:

  • Sales
  • Sales (unconfirmed)

A purchase is listed as "unconfirmed" until it has been processed by our shipping center. Since the customer has the option of canceling unshipped orders, Playasia will list the purchase as "Unconfirmed Sales" until the purchase has been fully completed. You will then automatically receive a credit to your account.

Your affiliate balance can be retrieved in real-time in your customer account.

Commission for each confirmed sale will automatically be credited as in the following example:

Please note that NO funds will be credited for orders that were placed through your own affiliate link.Playasia also monitors transactions that are in breach with our Affiliate Terms & Conditions, which includes setting up another customer account in order to earn commission for purchases made by oneself.
