7. Commission Payment
7.1 Affiliates who successfully refer Users to make paid purchases on the Forever Fresh Website, will get Commission which is calculated based on the Affiliate’s Commission Level and Commission structure.
7.2 Commission amount is dependent on order value and does not include amounts attributed to Value Added Tax and Shipping.
7.3 The status of Commission is displayed in the Affiliate Dashboard’s Commission tab. Any approved Commission will be listed on Affiliate Dashboard’s Payment tab.
7.4 User transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be eligible for Commission and will not be paid out.
7.5 Forever Fresh will track Users who have visited the Forever Fresh Website by way of Affiliate referral links and referral codes. Referral links use website tracking cookies which expire after ninety (90) Cookie Days. Only Users who make purchases within the active Cookie Day period, will be considered referrals of the Affiliate and recorded as such in the Affiliate Dashboard. If a User clears their Cookies during the Cookie Day period, Forever Fresh shall not be liable for any Commissions that may have been accrued to you.
7.6 Commissions are earned from authorised referrals that generate qualifying purchases via your Affiliate links. No commissions are granted for referring existing Forever Fresh Users.
7.7 Forever Fresh’s Commission Structure is based on a tiered structure. Refer to the Affiliate Dashboard for Commission levels, tiering details and applicable metrics and rules.
7.8 Commission amounts per product/service sold may be changed by Forever Fresh at any time. This information is available to you in the Affiliate Dashboard. You are solely responsible for determining if the Commission amount for an Affiliate link you have placed on your website has changed or been discontinued.
7.9 Accrued commissions will be paid on the 7th date of the month following the transaction that generated the commission. No commission payment shall be made unless the total accrued unpaid Commission exceeds the minimum threshold of ZAR300. Any Commission that may be due will be calculated in accordance with the statistics and balance that are collected, calculated and displayed on the Affiliate Dashboard. The only valid statistics used for determining Commissions will be those displayed in the Affiliate Dashboard.
7.10 For an Affiliate to receive a Commission, the Affiliate account must remain active for a minimum of seven (7) days after the payment date. For this reason, the Commissions generated on any date will be displayed as “Pending Approval” in the Affiliate account for seven (7) days. If the purchaser does not request refunds within this timeframe, and if the Commission was not a result of a self-referral and doesn’t breach any other terms of this Affiliate Agreement, you will see payment amounts in “Current Commissions” as “Approved – Pending Payment”.
7.11 Affiliate is responsible for any and all charges, fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses arising out of the Affiliate relationship with Forever Fresh including those incurred in order to receive Affiliate payments.
7.12 Available payment options for Commissions are described in the Affiliate Dashboard.
7.13 Our primary payout option is Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) in South African Rands (“ZAR”) to banking institutions within the Republic of South Africa.
7.14 It is your responsibility to upload and maintain your banking details on the Affiliate Dashboard.
7.15 Payments will only be sent for Affiliate purchases that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will be void.
8. Affiliate Promotional Materials
8.1 You are free to promote what you deem appropriate on your own website(s) and social channels.
8.2 Advertising commonly known as “spamming” is inappropriate and unacceptable to us and constitutes a material breach of this Affiliate Agreement. Other prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. Additionally, you may not advertise in any way that effectively hides or misrepresents your own identity, your domain name, or your email address. You may use emails or other messages to customers to promote Forever Fresh’s products if the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or website, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings and such emails or other messages are otherwise sent in compliance with the laws applicable to them.
