Yes, you have nothing to do with payments, refunds, warranties etc. All you do is to presell (introduce) the product to the consumer. After that the vendor of the product will deal with everything else.
Most of them have 30-day money back guarantees in place, so it is likely that your commission will be in "pending" status during that period. Once the commission is cleared, your money is safe.
In cases when merchants have to give a refund after the 30-day period due to the warranty issues or from any other reason, they will not ask for your commission to be paid back. You have done your part of the job and the rest is not your fault.
At least that is my experience. I've sold close to $100,000 worth of goods (almost half of them electronics) through PPC over the past 17 months and not one single time my commission was deducted after it was already cleared in my account.
There was one time though when it was cancelled during the "pending" period due to the refund.
