The first tier of commission in these affiliate programs is same as in any regular affiliate program.

Residual programs Affiliates are paid commission for as long as their referral continues to purchase products or services at the merchant's site. This means the affiliate not only earns a commission on the initial sale, but on the subsequent sales as well.
