Stainless Classics affiliate payouts are 5% to each affiliate member registered. Currently our affiliate program is powered through the Open Cart affiliate system which is integrated with our shopping cart. We have a minimum payout of £50. If the balance of an affiliate's account is less than £50, then the balance will roll over to the following month or until the minimum payout balance is met. We pay our affiliates on a monthly basis. PayPal payments are made on or before the 5th of each calendar month.
