How much can I earn as an affiliate?

Coto Academy’s affiliates earn a commission for customers that they refer to make a purchase from our website through an affiliate link that contains a referral handle. Standard affiliates who signed up to become an affiliate from our website earn 30% commissions for each successful purchase they refer to Coto Academy. Premium affiliates – influencers who were approached by us directly earn an early adopter rate of 60% commissions.

What is the minimum amount of revenue required to receive payout?

Our affiliate is eligible for payout once their revenue balance reaches $25.00. If you do not make over $25.00 in a given a given month, we will roll over the balance to the next month until this minimum threshold is met. For example, if you make $20.00 in April and $10.00 in May, your April balance would be rolled over into May and you would receive payout for both months in June.
