What is the commission structure?

You will receive a 20% commission for each CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ sold through links on your Web site.

How do I get paid and how often?

Once you earn at least $50 in commissions for a month, a check will be mailed to you. If you do not reach at least $50 in commissions within a month, your total will be carried over to the next month.

Checks are mailed out every month for the previous month's transactions. Commissions are paid within 30 days after a month closes.
