As an Affiliate, you can only have 1 account.
To be eligible to earn a Commission the end user (the authorized actual user of who registered for a free/paid RSS Ground account) must purchase RSS Ground subscription within the stated cookie life period of coming to RSS Ground through the referral link from your website, email or other online communications. If a sale occurs after cookie life period expires and the end user has not returned through the referral link and purchased RSS Ground subscription then no Commission shall occur.
Cookie lifetime is 30 days.
Your initial Commission rate is equal to 30% (thirty percent) of the total sale amount. After 10 referrals your rate goes up to 35%. After 25 total referrals – 40%. After 50 referrals – 45%. And finally after attracting 100 new members your affiliate commissions rate will be 50%.
Commission Payments are processed once a month by the 10th day of each month. Commission payments cover sales accrued between the first and last days of the previous month. Commission payments are made every time your account balance reaches a minimum threshold of $30 (thirty USD). Money credited to your affiliate balance does not accrue interest.
Payments are made via PayPal payment processor.
Commissions are only earned on paid accounts. If the end user cancels or does not pay for RSS Ground subscription, asks for a refund or uses limited free registration, no Commissions will accrue.
If at any time the end user account is cancelled, suspended or refunded you will become ineligible to receive further (future) Commissions from that end user.
Commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods will be voided. Fraudulent activities will also result in immediate account cancellation.
All statistics are collected and calculated by RSS Ground, and will be the only valid statistics used for determining Commissions.
Chargeback fees and refunds will be deducted from your earned commission.
From time to time RSS Ground may change subscription prices, therefore these changes may affect both the commission you will earn and the truthfulness of the information you will provide. We cannot guarantee the availability of subscriptions at the prices that you list on your website, if they are outdated.
Commission structure is subject to change at our discretion.
