    I'm not 100% clear how the relationship is formed between me (the affiliate) and the company and how I ensure I get paid. If I'm bringing them business and making sales through my page I've set up, what is there to stop the company from screwing me and never paying me?

    A lot of companies will screw you over... You need to do your homework. Double check that the company hasn't had payment issues in the past and definitely look on this site to see if anyone has been screwed over by the company before. Just be smart about it... if you see a few people saying the same thing... "scam! don't go with them, they never paid me!" (etc etc) then you need to run away screaming. Also, on the flip side, a lot of Affiliate programs are walking the straight and narrow. You should have no problem finding one that does.
