6-Payment schedule

Turnover that is subject to publisher commissions is the actual income obtained through the sale of air tickets to online customers. The net income to be invoiced is the net amount which will be determined after deduction of all taxes, landing charges, service charges, possible commissions, early payment discounts and other benefits. Commissions are calculated on validated sales. A sale is validated/denied within 30 days from the date of purchase and publishers are paid once a month, subject to the merchant’s previous payment of the invoice that includes those validated sales. Publishers are paid once a month, the 3rd week of the month, on Tuesday by Tradedoubler.

If you own multiple websites or media channels, you can receive a single payment for your commission by using the same identifier code. If you want, you view separately the sales of each website by using a different identifier code generating payment for each website or media channel.
