The Company has taken every effort to ensure it accurately represents its products, services, programs and promotions, and the potential to help you earn commissions. However, there is no guarantee that you will get any specific results or earn any money whatsoever during any promotion. This is absolutely not a “get rich quick” scheme. Nothing on any of the Company’s websites or communications should be construed as a promise or guarantee of earnings. Every person is different, and each person’s success in any endeavor, including promotions for the Company’s products and programs, depends on her background, dedication, desire and motivation. Any testimonials or examples used in the Company’s websites or communications are exceptional results, and should not be interpreted as typical. Please do not infer that these examples are promises or guarantees of earnings, or of same/similar results. Any forward-looking statements outlined in the Company’s websites or communications are nothing more than expectations or forecasts for future potential, and are not guarantees or promises for actual performance. These statements are simply the Company’s opinion. The Company makes NO guarantees that you will achieve any results from its ideas, products, programs or promotions, and the Company offers no professional legal or financial advice.
Affiliate will receive 25% of the sale price of each product or service sale that is directly referred by the Affiliate to the Company’s website through the Affiliate’s unique link.
Commissions are not paid on, and will not include, a single sale to the Affiliate themselves, meaning Affiliate cannot purchase a product or program for their own use through their own link and receive commission on that sale. Affiliate commissions are counted and final numbers are deemed final at the sole discretion and decision of the Company.
Commission payments will be sent to the Affiliate by the Company via PayPal or check on or around the 10th of each month for the commissions were earned two months prior. To be clear, this means that commissions earned on product sales that occur in February will be paid out on or around the 10th of April, and commissions earned on product sales that occur in July will be paid out on or around the 10th of September, and so on.
In situations where multiple payments are allowed on products or programs with a payment plan, Affiliate should expect to receive 25% of each collected payment until the customer has paid the Company in full for the product. If a sale is canceled or refunded for any reason, any paid commission will be deducted from the amount owed to the Affiliate and any subsequent payment. Affiliates will not be paid a commission on sales or orders that are in delinquent status. If payments for delinquent customers are received within 45 days of the original payment due date and the Affiliate is still in good standing in the Company’s Affiliate Program, the Affiliate will be paid their commission. If delinquent payments are received after 45 days beyond the original payment due date, the Affiliate will not receive commission on that sale. Affiliate commissions will not be paid based on any sales or amounts that are attributed to spam, any kind of fraud (including without limitation credit card fraud), or returned products. The Company reserves the right to change the dates of commission payouts without notice to the Affiliate.
Affiliates must provide their PayPal address, or Company approved payment method and complete any tax information sent by the Company before receiving any commission payments. The Company is not responsible for the Affiliate using or maintaining their affiliate links and only sales tracked through the Company’s estore system will count towards the Affiliate’s commissions. All sales and commission numbers are tallied by the Company and credit due to the Affiliate and all the final sales and commission numbers are at the sole discretion of the Company. The Company makes every reasonable effort to accurately track and pay commissions for all sales that come from Affiliates, but is not responsible nor under any circumstances will be held liable for any technical difficulties, outside events, actions by other affiliates, or other uncontrollable events that may disrupt or interfere with the Company’s ability to track sales or pay commissions.
