Commissions and payment
There are two types of commissions:
- One-time commission – commissions that are earned only on the first purchase of a new customer that was referred by an affiliate.
- Lifetime commission – commissions that are earned on all purchases of a new customer referred by an affiliate.
Regular affiliates get 5% one-time commission on every referred sale of all services except custom services; Influencers, individuals who have over 10,000 followers in at least one social media platform, get a 10% one-time commission on every referred sale of all services except custom services; Boosters, individuals who provide boosting services to SkipTheGrind.Online, get a 3% lifetime commission on every referred sale of all services except custom services.
For a sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to SkipTheGrind.Online and complete an order for a product during that session and for it to be a valid sale, ALL the conditions below must be true:
- At the time of order the customer has an active cookie indicating you as the last affiliate who referred them to our website.
- The affiliate’s account must be active at the time of the sale. No commission is due for sales that were made before the affiliate has registered for our Affiliate Program.
- The customer that the affiliate refers has not used our services before and has not signed up for an affiliate account with us before.
- The customer completed their order processes without any assistance from the affiliate, including when the affiliate acted on behalf of the customer.
- The referred customer has created an account with us at the time of purchase.
- The initial order payment of the referred customer are fully processed and are not subjected to refund or chargeback, AND the ordered service has been completed.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods and to mark any sale as invalid at our own discretion, without providing any explanation or justification.
Payments only begin once an affiliate has earned more than €100 in affiliate income. Payments are released every 15th day of the month covering all sales that came in the previous month. For example, the payment will be released on 15th February for all sales generated between 1st to 30th January.
If an affiliate account never crosses the €100 threshold, the affiliate’s commissions will not be realized or paid yet. Commissions will be carried over the next month until it reaches the threshold. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the €100 threshold.
Affiliates may choose to receive earnings in real money to their PayPal accounts in EUR or other payment providers they choose in USD or in STG credits (1 eur = 1 STG Credit) to be used to buy their own boosting services from us. We will use PayPal’s EUR to USD conversion rate.
The affiliate is responsible for payment of all taxes and fees (including bank fees, transfer fees, and currency exchange fees). All amounts payable by us to the affiliate is subject to be offset by us against any amounts owed by the affiliate to us.
We reserve the right to alter or change the commission rate, currency by which we pay, commission threshold, and payment schedule at any time without notice.
