    You might get away with one or two purchases but they'll soon pick up on it and you won't get commission when buying for yourself. I don't know if it's delivery address or credit card that they pick up on.

    If that isn't the most ludicrous policy, I just don't know. So just because you're an affiliate, your money's not as good as anyone you refer? Double mediocre commission will kill them I guess :(

    With a few affiliates a friend and I cross shop to save the hassle but its in most t's & c's to not use your own.

    They do it so that people don't sign up to just to get a discount.

    If your store is registered to your company and you personally buy something using your store, then presumably your personal purchase is from a different legal entity to the affiiliate that owns the store?

    I used to have my affiliate account on a different email than the one I use for my purchases and I did get the commissions, however, at some point I changed the email address and now I don't.
