How much can I make?
Affiliates can earn up to 2% of each sale that occurs on a click-through from your site. How much you earn depends on how many of your visitors click on the Apple Store banners and how much those visitors spend at our store.
If a user returns a product for a refund, or if credit card charges are reversed due to a dispute or credit card fraud, your account will be debited for any commission earned on that transaction. (If a product is returned in exchange for new merchandise, or if goods are lost or damaged and we ship replacement goods to the customer, your commissions will not be affected.)
