clixGalore applies a transaction service fee to Merchants only. There is no Affiliate transaction service fee. clixGalore's service fee is 25% based on the commission paid from the Merchant to the Affiliate. The Merchant account is debited at the time of each transaction. For example, if the Merchant pays $1 in commission, the service fee is 25c making a total of $1.25 deducted from the Merchants program account balance. Merchants must maintain a program account balance greater than the potential commission due on all pending orders for traffic to be directed the Merchants website. Please note if your Merchant program is managed by one of our referral partners the clixGalore service fee is 30%. Commission is payable on all valid orders received. Valid orders includes all orders where payment is made by the customer and the goods/services are delivered to and retained by the customer. Traffic will not be directed to the Merchants website if their program account balance is not greater than the potential commission due on all pending orders. Furthermore, traffic will not be directed to the Merchants website if the program account balance is less that the commission rate specified in their program. Visitors will be directed to a page that contains the following text and reads 'Unfortunately we cannot redirect you to the website requested. The program may be inactive, have a low balance or the Merchant may be geographically targeting and filtering the customers / traffic received at their website. The country source of this click may have been filtered out.' This text may vary from time to time. Pending orders greater than thirty days old will be automatically confirmed. Retrospective lowering of the commission rate on pending and confirmed orders received is prohibited. The commission to be paid on these orders cannot be a rate lower than the rate set at the time the orders were received. The top level domain URL maintained in the program details or in the specified banner URL landing pages must be the same and cannot differ. Once a program has been activated this top level domain URL cannot be altered. If a different top level domain URL is specified in either location, clixGalore reserves the right to terminate the program. Annual Membership fees, banner design fees, banner hosting service fees and other promotional advertising service fees are non refundable. clixGalore charges a $44 (ex gst) administration fee for each Merchant program deactivation/closure. (Please note that this does NOT apply to Affiliate commission payments). At the time of closure, the Merchant must honour the cookie period offered to Affiliates beyond the program closure date. Therefore transactions recorded within the cookie period that have a click date prior to the closure date will be processed against the respective Affiliate account. The program will not be considered fully closed until the cookie expiry period has elapsed. Interest is not paid on Merchant or Affiliate program account balances. Annual Membership fees, banner design fees, banner hosting service fees and other promotional advertising service fees associated with advertising on clixGaloretutor.com are non refundable. Annual Membership promotional services will be provided for one year from the purchase date and will automatically renew and continue to be provided unless the services are cancelled. The banner hosting service will be provided for one year from the purchase date. After this period, unless the Merchant has advised clixGalore prior to the banner hosting expiry date that they wish to cancel the banner hosting service, the banner hosting service will be renewed for one year. Account balance refunds are issued back to the credit card used to make the initial purchase (or another card with the same card holders name) as advised by the Merchant. A partial program balance refund can be requested however the program balance cannot be refunded to a level below the minimum balance notification level. clixGalore is under no obligation to credit your clixGalore account monetary sums that may have been lost or forfeited due to circumstances including, but not limited to, software malfunctions or inadvertent Member selections.
If you apply / purchase our services as a Merchant and submit your credit card details, you authorise clixGalore to debit your credit card for the services purchased, commissions owing on orders/leads received and any future deposits you make to your account. In the event of your credit card being declined and an alternative credit card has been previously provided to your account, this alternate credit card will be used to process the purchase/deposit. To minimise credit card misuse, repeated use of invalid credit cards to make account deposits will incur a $20 charge. This amount will be deducted from the Merchants account balance.
To ensure the integrity of the tracking and Affiliate payment for transactions driven to the Merchant site, all Lead and Sale programs will remain inactive until the 'End of Lead' or 'End of Sale' confirmation tracking code provided to Merchants for implementation has been verified by clixGalore. Furthermore a non refundable administration charge of $100 (ex gst) will be incurred by Merchants if the clixGalore 'End of Lead' or 'End of Sale' confirmation tracking code is removed and not re-implemented to the appropriate confirmation pages within 8 hours. In its sole discretion clixGalore may also determine that the Merchant must compensate clixGalore and Affiliates with a monetary sum for lost commissions covering the period tracking code is removed. This compensation will be paid from the Merchant account. If the tracking code remains removed for a period greater than five business days, the Merchant will be charged an administration fee equal to the program balance and the program will be deactivated. The clixGalore tracking code may not be modified in any way or used in any programming method or with technology that may degrade the integrity of the tracking of transactions. The definition of 'programming method' and 'degrade' is entirely at the discretion of clixGalore. Merchant programs that have not been activated after a period of one year will have a program closure charge applied to the program equal to the sum of the program balance.
From time to time we may request documentation from a Merchant to support and verify the reason they have provided for an order being declined. If the Merchant is unable to provide the requested documentation the order will be approved and the commission will be payable to the Affiliate.
clixGalore has a monthly Affiliate commission pay schedule and commissions are paid when an Affiliate program balance reaches US$50 or AUD$100 or UK£35 or €60 or NZ$110. clixGalore processes commission earnings for each currency separately. Commission earnings in different currencies are not combined. Affiliate program balances are not combined. To qualify for a payment, the Affiliate program balance for the respective currency must be equal or greater than the payment threshold for the respective currency.
