1. Affiliate Approvals
JD Williams are happy to work with a wide variety of affiliates promotion with the exception of paid social (i.e social network audience targeting) and display activity that includes our brands.(i.e. brand display ads on sites, apps, social media etc) In particular we are looking for sites which are aesthetically pleasing and best reflect our brand values. We do not work with sites that display content that may be deemed pornographic or offensive.
Validations will generally run monthly in line with our 28 days returns policy. E.g. If you generate a sale on the 1st October, this sale will not be validated before 29th October. Returns, credit reversals etc will then be processed and commission correctly allocated based on the above commission rates. Validations are subject to any change in our returns policy.
