  1. Enrollment

 

To enroll in the Affiliate Program, you must submit an Affiliate Application for each website through which you wish to promote the products and services of Iliad Terra Studio.  Applications are reviews on a rolling basis.  Please allow 5-10 business days for processing.  Iliad Terra Studio reserves the right to deny entrance into its Affiliate Program to any applicant that is deemed unqualified for any reason at our sole and absolute discretion.  This includes, but is not limited to, the Qualifying Sites listed in Paragraph 8 of this Agreement.

 

  1. Commissions

 

Affiliates will be paid a referral fee (“Commission”), for each customer who completes a purchase through the unique affiliate link assigned to Affiliate (the “Link”).  Commissions will be calculated based upon the Gross Sales Price.  Gross Sales Price is defined as all payments received by Iliad Terra Studio by the sale of the product, but not including any shipping and handling, sales tax, special services fees, such as gift wrapping or packaging, late charges, collection costs, imports/exports duties, amounts due to credit card fraud, credits given to customers, bad debt write-off and refunded products of services.

 

The Affiliate will only be paid Commissions on sales that are tracked through Iliad Terra Studio’s online tracking system and indicate the Link as the sources.  For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure order system.  Word of mouth referrals will not result in an Affiliate Commission.  Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliated links or using exclusive discount code given at sign up. 

The Commission Rate will be twenty (20) percent of the Gross Sales Price of each completed purchase made through the Affiliate Link or by using the code after payment to Iliad Terra Studio.  Iliad Terra Studio reserves the right to change and/or amend the Commission Rate structure at any time, in our sole discretion.  This includes an increase in Commissions during a limited time special promotion. 

 

Affiliate may not purchase Iliad Terra Studio products or services through his/her own link for personal use and receive a commission on that sale.

 

Commissions will not be paid on any sale or amount attributed to spam or credit card fraud.

 

  1. Payment

 

Iliad Terra Studio pays the Affiliates monthly on the 15th of the following month.  For example, January sales are paid on February 15th and so on.  Commissions will be adjusted for orders that are cancelled, delinquent, returned or where payment is otherwise refunded to the purchaser.

 

All payments will be made to the Affiliate PayPal account.  It is the Affiliates responsibility to provide up to date and accurate account information.  Commissions sent to the wrong account are the sole responsibility of the Affiliate to retrieve.  The Affiliate will be responsible for all costs incurred by Iliad Terra Studio in aiding in the correction of monies sent to the wrong account.
