Links/images on your site, in your emails, or other communications

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 we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Global Coupon services. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won't change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.

You must ensure that each of the links between your site, images, emails, or communications and www.globalcoupon.com, and/or other Global Coupon domain properties, properly utilizes authorized special link formats. Links to www.globalcoupon.com placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will earn affiliate revenue only with respect to sales of all Business Membership fees, monthly/annual renewal membership fees, Top Me Up, Featured Listing, Business and Corporate Access card, Bid My Deal e-distribution fees charged for your specific affiliate sponsored businesses generated under your encoded affiliate ID, as a result of Special Links, digital or manual in-person introductions to the platform etc. We will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links with your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.

Referral fees/commissions and payment

For a sale, or continual sales on a long-term basis, to be eligible to earn an affiliate fee, the Business member must be a current active sponsored business member in full compliance and in good standing with Global Coupon.

Commissions are earned once the business customer has become, and remains a paid member of Global Coupon in good standing, including as well, the enlisted business’ aggregate spend, as per revenue lines mentioned, on the Global Coupon platform, paid monthly. These revenue streams are inclusive to, and can originate from, Business membership fees, Business membership renewal fees, Business Access cards and bulk Corporate Access card purchases, Top Me Up listing fees, Feature listing fees, Bid My Deal e-distribution fees. Any/all Global Coupon bid/buy digital display advertising, privately arranged or customized media/ad buy inventory sold, are not part of the Global Coupon affiliate program. Any/all incoming RTA/RTB adserve, ad exchange, remnant ad spots, or ad network sales volumes are not part of the Global Coupon affiliate program.

If business members cancel their payment, you will not receive prorated commissions or a commission for the current month on cancelled services.

The commission structure is subject to change at our discretion. Commissions earned under the previous structure will be paid under the previous structure prior to the ‘in effect’ date. Commissions under any new structure will be paid under the new structure after the ‘in effect’ date.

We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links, word of mouth, or other acceptable forms of communication, that result in actual sponsored business member approved sales on the platform. We will not pay commissions if someone says they made a purchase if it was not tracked by our system. Our affiliate software system is agreed by all parties to be the relied upon source for tracking and payment.

We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods, including ‘spamming’.

Payments only begin once you've earned a minimum of $50 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $50 threshold, net of any credits or withholdings, your commissions will not be realized or paid. Inactive affiliate accounts with 6 months of inactivity shall be deemed dormant or abandoned, any determined owed paid, if any, and cancelled at our discretion. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the minimum $50 threshold.

Payouts

Commissions are currently paid by PayPal (default) and also by cheque.

To receive commissions through PayPal, you must have a PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account you can sign up for one at any time. Ensure your PayPal account details (PayPal ID and PayPal email address) are accurate in your affiliate registration information provided.

Identifying yourself as a Global Coupon Affiliate

You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of Global Coupon, or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.

Payment schedule

As long as your current affiliate earnings are over $50, you'll be paid roughly every 45 days. If you haven't earned $50 since your last payment, payment shall be made roughly 45 days after you've crossed the threshold. Payments are only made via PayPal.
