Anyone any ideas?

I was able to tick the box by entering focus mode ([NVDA] + [SPACE]) and tabbing to the checkbox (it comes before the link in the tab order) and pressing [SPACE]. The button was then enabled and I could proceed.

Many thanks. Your approach of enabling focus mode and then tabbing to the checkbox and enabling it worked. Sadly, the partner program is not supported in India which is where I live so that’s that for now.
