This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to Main Street ROI’s affiliate program. By signing up for our affiliate program, you agree to these terms and conditions.
1. How We Track Referrals
We will make available to you banner advertisements, text links and/or customized forms with which to link to our websites. These links will allow your visitors to enter our websites and enable us to keep track of the sales you may earn if they purchase products from us. To permit accurate tracking, and reporting, the links we provide you are in a special “tracking” link format. You are responsible for ensuring that each of the links between your site and our websites is a tracking link.
2. How We Process Customer Orders
We will process orders placed by customers who enter our websites via tracking links. We reserve the right to reject any orders that do not comply with our policies or conditions at the time of the order. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations and returns and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase using tracking links and you can access reports summarizing this sales activity inside your InfusionSoft affiliate dashboard.
3. How You Get Paid
We shall pay you Referral Fees (as defined below) on the 15th of each month for the previous month’s sales. We shall provide you with reasonable detail for the calculation of such Referral Fee with each such monthly payment. Payments are made when commission balances reach $100.00 USD. If an order for which a Referral Fee was previously paid to you is refunded by us to a customer who purchased our products and services using the tracking link, we will deduct the corresponding amount of such Referral Fee related to such refunded order (“Referral Fee Refund”) from your next monthly Referral Fee payment, and if no monthly Referral Fee payment is due to you, then you shall pay the Referral Fee Refund to us within thirty days after our written request (which request shall include the details of such refunded order and related amounts) for such Referral Fee Refund. Payment will be made via PayPal.
We will pay you when visitors from your site use the tracking link to purchase products from us. Referral Fees are calculated based on a percent of sales. The percent is specified in the Referral Fee Structure section below.
Purchases must be completed on our site. The purchase must be made via a valid credit or debit card. No phone orders.
Note regarding “Cookies”: To keep track of the Session, we use a small text file called a “cookie” that is placed on the hard drive of the visitor’s computer. Some web browsers permit users to elect not to receive cookies. Only visitors who accept cookies can be tracked for Referral Fees. You understand that no Referral Fee can be paid for any purchase made by a visitor who does not accept “cookies.”
4. Partnership Commission Structure:
Commissions range from 10-50% depending on the type of product or service and volume of sales referred.
5. Customer Pricing and Policies:
Customers who buy products through your tracking links will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service and product sales from and by Main Street ROI will apply to those customers. Also, the terms, conditions and policies of our websites will apply to the visitors’ conduct and their rights and obligations while visiting our websites. We have the right to change our policies and operating procedures at any time. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product. You are responsible for periodically visiting, reviewing and becoming familiar with the terms and conditions sections of our various websites.
