The purpose of these Terms is to explain how it works and introduce basic terms and conditions of our Affiliate Program. Please note that throughout these Terms, "we," "us," and "our" refer to MailerCheck, and "you," "your," and "yours" refer to the Affiliate.
By signing up to be an Affiliate in the MailerCheck Affiliate Program you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
1. Affiliate Rights and Obligations
1.1. To become an Affiliate, you need to complete and submit the online application form. You must provide your name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process. Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the MailerCheck site. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the MailerCheck site properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the MailerCheck site placed on your site pursuant to these terms and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will earn referral fees only with respect to sign-ups on a MailerCheck product site occurring directly through Special Links.
1.2. Your site is unsuitable for our Affiliate Program if it promotes illegal activities, violence, discrimination based on any ground, incorporates any materials which infringe or assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights, or to violate the law, or is otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us. We reserve the right to deny an Affiliate, in our sole discretion;
1.3. You are forbidden to create or design your website, social network profile or any other profile in a manner which resembles MailerCheck website or which leads customers to believe you are MailerCheck;

3. Access to Affiliate Dashboard
We'll provide you with a special Affiliate Dashboard where you can monitor your referral’s signups, purchases and the subsequent payments to you. You’ll also receive the marketing materials you will need to successfully sell MailerCheck.
4. Payments and Refunds
4.1. When someone you refer to us orders an account, you'll earn 30% not only on the initial sale but also on any recurring payments they make. For a product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to the MailerCheck Site and sign up for the product during that session. Your referrals must come through your affiliate link and sign up for MailerCheck within 90 days from the first visit. If they return to MailerCheck after the 90-day period, you will not earn a commission on their purchase.
4.2. There is one type of referral fee that can be earned: Commission. The current commission is 30% recurring commission for the first 24 months starting after the first signup. Commissions are paid after you reach $50 and claim payout. We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they signed up or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems. We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
4.3. Commissions are paid by PayPal and Stripe. We can not send checks, credit credit cards, or send cash. You are required to have a PayPal or Stripe account to receive commissions. If you don't have a PayPal or Stripe account you can sign up for one at any time, but you will not be paid until you have one.
4.4. Payouts are being made on a monthly basis.
4.5. If you are banned due to a violation of these Terms, we won’t pay you any current payments on your balance or future payments for your referral’s purchases. All payments will be stopped immediately. We also do not provide refunds if you abuse our Affiliate Program.
