You can use your commissions for purchasing products from directron.com until you decide to return your purchase. BEWARE , this company would NOT credit your affiliate account back! It been a few weeks since I've started requesting the crappy commissions posted back to my account. The issue is not a few bucks they took from me but the way this company does business. I'm not saying that this company is good or bad I just don't like the way they deal with affiliates.
