These Affiliates Program policies (“Program Policies”) are incorporated by reference in the Affiliates Program Operating Agreement, and capitalized terms used in these Program Policies and not otherwise defined here will have the definitions provided in the Agreement.
Affiliates Program Fee Statement (“Fee Statement”)
1. Qualifying Purchases and Referral Rewards/Commissions
A Qualified Purchase is defined as a purchase made at http://www.asterlili.com/ by a person (a "Referred Customer") who arrives to our website by clicking the Referrer's Affiliates Program link or entering the Referrer's Affiliates Program discount code when finalizing purchase at checkout.
For you to earn referral commissions as a Referrer, the Referred Customer must complete an order greater than $10 in total value, minus all fees including taxes, discounts, shipping, returns, chargebacks, fraudulent payments, and/or other 3rd party fees. In the event a Referred Customer returns a purchased item and their lifetime order value decreases below the minimum purchase amount, the referral credit awarded to the referring customer will be rescinded. Referral commissions will only be granted for completed purchases made by Referred Customers through the Affiliates program link or Affiliates program discount code.
Subject to the limitations described in this Fee Statement and compliance with the Affiliates Program Operating Agreement, we will pay the Referrer a 20% commission of the total value of a qualified purchase, minus all fees including taxes, discounts, shipping, returns, chargebacks, fraudulent payments, and/or other 3rd party fees
Referral fees and commission payments are issued monthly through a check mailed to the Referrer's address or a payment processed through PayPal. As a Referrer, you are responsible for any and ALL tax liability resulting from referral fees and commissions.
2. Disqualified Purchases
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Qualifying Purchases are disqualified whenever they occur in connection with a violation of this Affiliates Program Fee Statement or any other terms, conditions, specifications, statements, and policies that we may issue from time to time that apply to the Affiliates Program, including the most up-to-date version of the Affiliates Program Operating Agreement (collectively, the “Program Documents”). For example, no Program Fees are payable for a purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the links from your Site to the Asterlili Site are not properly formatted.
Additionally, the following purchases that would otherwise be Qualified Purchases are disqualified and excluded from the Affiliates Program:
(b) any Product order that is canceled or returned,
(c) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Asterlili Site through any advertisement that you purchased through participation in bidding or auctions on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “Asterlili”
(d) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Asterlili Site by a link that is generated or displayed on a search engine (including Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search portal, sponsored advertising service, or other search or referral service, or any site that participates in such search engine’s network),
(e) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Asterlili Site by a link that sends users indirectly to the Asterlili Site via an intermediate site, without requiring the customer to click on a link or take some other affirmative action on that intermediate site (a “Redirecting Link”),
(f) any Product purchased by a customer, where such customer does not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the Asterlili Site.
