How much will I earn?

GTC offers a commission on the qualified education products. Our current commission is 5% on all registrations. The more registrations you refer to us, the more you earn. At this time the books in our library are not available for commissions but we are working on that for a future offering.

You can do this through the link that we provide when you sign up for an account. You can access reports, updated daily, that provide information on impressions, click-through, and commissions earned.

How often do I get paid?

Payments for commissions earned will be paid at the end of every calendar quarter (end of March, June, September, and December). However, payment is only made until after the class has taken place. That is, if a registration for a course in April is received in February, that commission is not paid until June because that is when GTC incurs the income. Courses are due to cancellation and it is not until the course is actually completed that we are able to pay the commission.

How will you know that the orders came from me?

All links from your website, emails, banners, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other form of promotion that you contains a unique identifier that tracks every time a user comes to us via your customized link. Through this identifier we know to credit you when a sale is made.
