All commissions that are paid to affiliates are calculated automatically, and are based on the commission structure presented at the affiliate home page, unless stated otherwise in a different agreement or in an appendix to this one, approved by both the affiliate and TMDHosting.
Commissions are paid when:
There is a successful purchase of one of the following products by customers, referred to TMDHosting site by an affiliate link: Shared and Cloud hosting packages; VPS hosting packages or Dedicated servers.
After our standard 30-day review period.
We reserve the right to extend the review period without prior notice for as long as is reasonably necessary in order to establish the validity of a sale.
In case the purchased account is a shared or a cloud hosting package and has a validity duration billing cycle of only 1 month the review period will be extended to 90 days.
The purchase has not been void, cancelled or revoked during the review period by the customer or by us and the account is active at the time of the payout.
Commissions are payable on the 5th day of the following month if automatic payout has been requested by the Affiliate. Alternatively, all amounts due will be paid out upon request.
All commissions, presented and paid, are in USD.
There is a minimum payout commission of $100, which needs to be reached by affiliates before any transfer to their PayPal account can take place, exclusive of any sign up bonus amount.
Commission levels are developed in a manner of fair motivation, created by the company for the affiliates in order to constantly maintain success. Affiliates are entitled to join the Default level upon sign up and throughout the month they can use all legal sources to enhance their performance and reach higher commission levels.
Commission levels are: Default, Level 1 and Level 2. At the beginning of each month, these levels are reset so that affiliates are added automatically to the Default level, unless validity period is exclusively determined other way by TMDHosting in an additional agreement.
Different campaigns carry different commission amounts, which are presented in the commission table on the affiliate home page.
Moving from one commission level to another can be done only within one campaign. Monthly commissions are manually approved at the end of each month and are paid to affiliates at the beginning of the month after the following when the minimum payout commission was reached.
In the cases an affiliate is found to be sending customers not in good standing any approved commission can receive an additional 90 day review period.
Commissions are paid on a unique purchase made by a new customer and not on an existing one or a subsequent renewal order. Only commissions with status APPROVED are paid to the affiliate and TMDHosting is the sole instance of approval.
Payment Form – commissions can be paid only through PayPal.
For payments to be made through PayPal, you must provide us with the necessary information upon sign up.
You, as an affiliate, act as a referring agent for TMDHosting. We reserve the right to refuse customers (or to close their accounts) if necessary to comply with any requirements we may periodically establish.
