This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the Merandex affiliate program. In this agreement, the term "Affiliate" or "You" refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, "Merandex", "We" or "Our" refers to the product owner, Merandex Technology Solutions, LLC.).
The Merandex affiliate program is administered through our own internal affiliate system.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modifications may include, but not limited to changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Affiliate Program rules. If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.
To enroll in the affiliate program, you must submit an online affiliate application. Affiliate accounts are automatically setup upon application submission. Applications and brand usage are reviewed periodically and may be denied or revoked at any time.
When signing up for the Merandex affiliate program you will select an Affiliate Id. This id will be unique to you and you only. When clients sign up for the Merandex IntroWave Mobile App (AKA Digital Business Card) service, they can enter an Affiliate Id to identify their Affiliate. This will allow you to be paid for affiliate referrals. You may change your Affiliate Id thru the web based administration interface.
You will be issued a special URL once you become an approved member of the Merandex Affiliate Program which will be unique to you and you only, and when used will prepoulate your Affiliate Id in the signup form. Your Affiliate Id is necessary during user signu. and enables you to be paid for affiliate referrals.
You will be issued a limited IntroWave Mobile App once you become an approved member of the Merandex Affiliate Program which will be unique to you and you only. The Mobile App may only be partially edited by you (EG, Name, Contact Info, Social Media).
Affiliates will receive 10% of the initial signup revenue as a commission from IntroWave Mobile App client signups using the Affiliate's Id. Affiliates will receive 5% of the renewal revenue as a commission from IntroWave Mobile App renewals that are already associated with the Affiliate's Id.. Commissions may change at the discretion of Merandex. Commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, but they will return thereafter to the regular commission rate.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the client must complete the signup form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure signup system. Signup without an Affiliate Id will not result in an affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on paid signups that include an Affiliate Id.. Having the client enter the Affiliate Id is the sole responsibility of the affiliate.
Affiliates must remain a "Active" in order to collect commissions. For an Affiliate to be "Active", there must have been three new client signups in the past three months each using the Affiliate's Id. Merandex will provide a 6 month grace period from the date the Affiliate signed up in the Merandex affiliate program. After the first 6 months, the Affiliate must have had three new client signups in the past three months each using the Affiliate's Id in order to be "Active" and be eligible to collect commissions.
Merandex pays affiliates via check made payable to the PayTo field of the Affiliate record and mailed to the address in the Affiliate record. Both the PayTo and Affiliate address are part of the affiliate signup and are editable via the web based administration interface. If the PayTo or Address changes, it is the responsibility of the affiliate to make the change in the web based administration in a timely fashion. We will not reissue or resend payments returned due to incorrect PayTo or Addresses. Merandex may in the future change the method of payment.
Merandex will be solely responsible for processing every client signup with or without an Affiliate Id. Affiliates are not authorized to collect payments or sell any Merandex product or service from other websites as a "reseller" and no "resale" rights are granted in ANY way. Affiliates are not authorized to sell any Merandex product or service on ebay or other auction sites.
