Subject to our acceptance of you as an affiliate and your continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement:
B1. We will pay Affiliate for each Qualified Action (the “Commission”). A “Qualified Action” means an individual person who (i) accesses the Program Web Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program Web Site, (ii) is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person, (iii) is not using pre-populated fields (iv) completes all of the information required for such action within the time period allowed by us and/or Partners and (v) is not later determined by us and/or Partners to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate (vi) does not later request a refund or initiate a chargeback or reverse a payment. In addition, we may reject an action which is not a lead or sale from the country of origin. We reserve the right to reject any action which is not a Qualified Action under this Agreement as amended from time to time. On Pay Per Lead program you must earn $1000 per month. Otherwise we reserve the right to switch your account to Pay Per Sale program. For all Affiliate Programs where the payable action is a sale (i.e. Pay Per Sale) We reserve the right upon the Partner’s request to do the following: if an Affiliate is paid for a given Qualified Action but the respective sale is refunded afterwards the commission amount paid for this Action can be deducted from any future commission due to the Affiliate. Please note that if an end user subscribes using a prepaid card that cannot be rebilled you will receive the exact amount of their payment, not the default Pay Per Sale.
B2. We will pay you any Commissions on Net30 basis, provided that your account is currently greater than $500 (or $1000 if you have chosen to be paid by bank transfer) (each being “Minimum Balance”). We can consider weekly payments in case your commission is greater than $1500 per week on a permanent basis subject to agreement with your account manager. If you have not reached the given limit ($1500 ) at least once, your payment plan will be downgraded and you will be paid on Net30 basis instead of a weekly one. In order to switch to weekly-basis payments again you should reach the given limit 5 (five) weeks in a row. Such consequence will upgrade you to weekly payments again. For payments exceeding $3000, liability for all bank transaction fees will be shared equally by you and us. Accounts with a balance of less than the Minimum Balance will roll over to the next month, and will continue to roll over monthly until the Minimum Balance is reached. We reserve the right to charge back to your account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Qualified Action. You as an affiliate are an independent contractor and the relationship between the Company and you is not one of employment relationship. You are solely responsible for any taxes or social security costs due as a result of any payments received from the Company. You understand and agree that, if at any time we believe your account has been compromised, or this Agreement has been, or may have been breached, we reserve the right to withhold making any payment to you until such time as we have concluded our investigation and you agree to fully co-operate with any investigation at your own cost including providing all required identification documents and other documents if so requested. Your failure to promptly comply with any notification will result in your payments being delayed. We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable period of time to make sure that the total commission is calculated accurately and the correct amount is paid
B3. Payment for Commissions is dependent upon Partners providing such funds to us, and therefore, you agree that we shall only be liable to you for Commissions to the extent that such funds from the Partners have been received. You hereby release us from any claim for Commissions if such funds from the Partners have not been received
B4. All Commissions will be paid in USD, EUR or GBP, depending on which currency you chose when creating your account. All payments in another currency to that which you have chosen to be paid in, such currency will be converted into your account`s currency in accordance with our exchange rate policies and procedures based upon http://www.xe.com/currencytables/ rate of currency by the date of Qualified Action.
B5. We shall automatically generate an invoice on your behalf for all Commissions payable under this Agreement and shall remit payment to you based upon that invoice. All tracking of Links and determinations of Qualified Actions and Commissions shall be made by us in our sole discretion. In the event that you wish to dispute in good faith any portion of an invoice, you must submit that dispute to us in writing and in sufficient detail within thirty (30) days of the date on the invoice. If you do not dispute the invoice as set forth herein, then you agree that it irrevocably waives any claims based upon that invoice. All payments are made only on the basis of statistics in our tracking system. Any disputes on statistics will be considered by our team of affiliate managers.
B6. If you have an outstanding balance due to us under this Agreement or any other agreement between the you and us, whether or not related to the Affiliate Program or your Affiliate Account, you agree that we may offset any such amounts due to us from amounts payable to you under this Agreement.
B7. Referral Commissions are accrued on each payment transaction for each referred billable account as 5% of the transaction for the first six months on that particular account or until it is closed, whichever comes earlier. New accounts are considered referred by you if they sign up through your referral link. For payment terms – see point B2. For the payment your Referral Commission will be added to the regular Commissions and processed in one invoice if not agreed differently.
B8. Wrong, incorrect or out-of-date payment details for commission payments provided by you oblige us to pay bank fees/charges for return of the commission paid to the wrong payment account. If you provide us with wrong, incorrect and/or out-of-date payment details, We reserve the right to charge you with an additional sum (hereinafter – Fine) when effecting payment of commission to you after such violations. The Fines are applied as follows:
1) You provided us with wrong, incorrect and/or out-of-date payment details;
2) Your payment details were changed without timely warning Us/your personal manager;
3) Your payment details were changed untimely (you warned your manager after payment was sent etc.);
4) Other situations where we incur additional expenses due to your fault.
The amount of Fine we will charge you with depends on the amount of the invoice and varies as follows:
Invoices up to 5k – Fine of $ 50 or equivalent in currency of payment
Invoices from 5k to 10k – Fine of $ 100 or equivalent in currency of payment
Invoices above 10k – the amount of Fine is a subject to each individual case but not less than $ 200 or equivalent in currency of payment.
