HostMe Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
Our affiliate program is designed to help you generate income in exchange for referring new hosting clients to our company. Listed below are the terms and conditions associated with our affiliate program.
- HostMe Affiliate Program is meant strictly for individuals/companies who refer new customers to HostMe using approved marketing methods. Affiliates who abuse the affiliate program by purchasing products for themselves will not be eligible for earning commissions on such sales.
- Affiliates are paid a one-time commission for each hosting account referred to our services. A signup is counted when a customer first clicks on an affiliate referral link, completes the signup process and stays active for 45 days. The Affiliate will be given commission on each hosting account after 45 days.
- Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral. We cannot credit your affiliate account with past sales.
- All affiliate fees are locked 45 days after the end of the month in which the sale occurred. Payments are then processed and sent out from the 16th through the last day of the month or until all payments have been sent. Once your payment has been processed its status will change from pending to sent. EXAMPLE: All referrals made in January will lock on the 15th of March and will be sent starting on the 16th of March. Affiliates with January commissions should receive their payment around the end of March.
- HostMe agrees to track the customers referred to HostMe via the link provided to you for that purpose. HostMe utilizes cookies to maintain tracking information for up to one year. HostMe will pay you a commission for each such referral made in compliance with this agreement pursuant to the commission schedule and the terms set forth in this affiliate agreement.
- The offline payments / Third Party Transfer or any method that moves the affiliate to third party site for payment are not traceable and affiliates will not get commission on the untraceable orders.
- In case you or your customer has made the online payment & system didn't track then you need to inform us within 2 days. The case will be investigated in order to check the relevancy of that sale.
