10. Policies and Pricing
Customers who buy The Company’s products through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of The Company. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for our products sold under the Affiliate Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Our prices and product availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you already have listed on your site, you should update pricing often or not include price information in your product descriptions.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the The Company’s secure order system. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate.
Customers sent to The Company must be the end user of the product/service. If Affiliate is placing order on behalf of the customer, approval of this promotional method must be explicitly provided by The Company.
The Company pays affiliates via a PayPal account, provided to us when an Affiliate joins. If the PayPal email changes, it is the responsibility of the affiliate to notify the Affiliate Program to ensure proper commission payments. The payout email address can be updated within your affiliate area. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.
Payouts will be sent out within the first seven calendar days of each month, only if the affiliate requested a payout via the affiliate dashboard (tab “Payout”). The Company shall only pay Affiliate commission if, cumulatively, it amounts to $50.00 USD or more. If the Affiliate commission for any month amounts to less than $50.00 USD, The Company shall not pay the Affiliate until it amounts to at least $50.00 USD.
If, during the period ending 6 months after the Affiliate has been paid, it
becomes known that any Action was generated:
(a) invalidly pursuant to the provisions of clause 2 above;
(b) otherwise in contravention of these Terms or any applicable Affiliate Program rules; or
(c) by manipulation or deceit, or it is not possible to determine, after a review, that a valid Action was generated, then The Company reserves the right to claim back that Affiliate commission paid in respect of that Action from the Affiliate by way of a charge on the Affiliate’s Account.
In order to complete a payout and creating the credit note, it’s necessary to fill out the billing data via the affiliate dashboard (tab “Settings”) and click the “Payout” tab to send a payout request. Otherwise your earnings cannot be paid out.
You shall not create, publish, distribute, or permit any written material that makes reference to us without first submitting such material to us and receiving our written consent, which we agree shall not be unreasonably withheld.
