    Re: I Have Found this Confusing "As Applicable"

    Welcome to the forum.

    The delivery method (shipped, streamed or downloaded) which applies to your particular order will dictate the advertising fee rate you will earn.

    Please don't post all in capital letters, as you did in your first sentence. It's the online equivalent of shouting.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Ems's reply was a good one, but we didn't need to read it all again.

    Please note my corrections to this post.

    Always capitalise 'I', and don't leave a space before an exclamation mark.

    What if you had used one of the following prepositions typed in italic, "thanks for your kindness for/to answering the question". Do any of these two propositions change the meaning in the context above?

    Re: I Have Found this Confusing "As Applicable"

    "Thanks for your kindness for/to ..." are unnatural. There isn't even a need for "your kindness" as part of a longer sentence.

    "Thanks for answering the question" suffices (though we still prefer you to simply click the "Thank" button).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
