SECTION 3. COMPENSATION

Upon acceptance into the Program, You will receive a unique Affiliate ID through app.r8techsolutions.com. This Affiliate ID will be incorporated in the URL that You use to advertise R8 Tech Solutions. You may earn Commissions (as further described below) for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using Your Affiliate ID.

In the event that a Prospect has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently acquired Cookie will generally determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale except in instances of (i) recently canceled Prospects who attempt to re-subscribe under a different affiliate within 90 days of cancellation, (ii) cases of self-referral, or (iii) other scenarios at R8 Tech Solutions’s sole discretion. If a Prospect signs up for R8 Tech Solutions without connection to any Affiliate, that Prospect is considered unaffiliated, and no Commissions will be earned by any Affiliates for that Prospect unless otherwise agreed to by R8 Tech Solutions in writing.

A Commission is “earned” only if (i) Affiliate has registered and maintained a usable account with a third party payment provider to receive Commission payments and provided complete and accurate information to R8 Tech Solutions to facilitate payment and (ii) a Prospect’s account has remained in good status for at least forty-five (45) days after the Sale. No Commission is earned for a Sale if, at the time of attempted payout, Affiliate has not maintained a usable account with a third party payment provider or R8 Tech Solutions is unable to payout Commissions due to incomplete or inaccurate information provided by the Affiliate. Commission payout amounts will be determined by R8 Tech Solutions in its sole discretion. Commission rates may change from time to time at R8 Tech Solutions’s sole discretion. Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payouts will be paid on the 15th of each month following R8 Tech Solutions's receipt of payment for a Sale, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. In the event the 15th of each month falls on a holiday or weekend, Commission payouts will typically occur on the following business day, although exceptions may apply. All Commission payouts are calculated based on the amount of fees received by R8 Tech Solutions, less sales taxes.

The Commission Rate is 10%

In instances where a Prospect is affiliated under different Affiliates for different services (such as cases where one Affiliate makes the Sale, but another affiliate makes an upgrade for the same Prospect), R8 Tech Solutions will allocate Commissions as deemed appropriate in R8 Tech Solutions’s sole and absolute discretion.

All Commissions are paid in U.S. Dollars (USD) or otherwise in currencies offered by the payment provider. Some payment methods may incur processing fees that may be deducted from Your Commissions. Your combined Commission must be equal to or exceed Fifty and 00/100 Dollars ($50.00) (USD) before You receive a payment from R8 Tech Solutions. If Your combined Commissions in a 120-day period do not exceed $50.00 (USD), Your Commissions will not be paid and will be forfeited.

Affiliates must register with a third party payment provider to receive Commissions payouts. R8 Tech Solutions or the third party payment provider may require You to submit completed tax forms or other supporting documentation (the “Required Documents”) before processing Commissions payouts. If You fail to submit the Required Documents in a timely manner, R8 Tech Solutions or the third party payment provider may refuse to payout Commissions that were earned more than 120 days prior to receiving your Required Documents.  R8 Tech Solutions may withhold tax (including, not limited to, VAT) where required by applicable law. You are solely responsible for complying with all tax laws in Your respective jurisdiction(s) including, but not limited to, the payment of all required taxes, and filing of all returns and other required documents with, the applicable governing body(ies).

If R8 Tech Solutions determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission will be considered earned for such Sale. If a Commission has already been paid out for a Sale that is later deemed by R8 Tech Solutions to be fraudulent or in violation of this Agreement or the law, the Commission amount will automatically be withheld against any future Commissions or refunded back to R8 Tech Solutions at its option. R8 Tech Solutions may also terminate this Agreement and Your participation in the Program immediately without any further liability to you.

If a refund or charge-back occurs for a Sale, and if a Commission was already paid to You for that Sale, such Commission is considered unearned, and the Commission will be deducted from Your future Commission payouts.

R8 Tech Solutions will make reasonable efforts to payout all Earned Commissions. In the event that R8 Tech Solutions is unable to payout a Commission for any reason outside of R8 Tech Solutions’s control, those Commissions may be forfeited at R8 Tech Solutions’s sole discretion.

SECTION 4. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

R8 Tech Solutions may provide you with certain resources and materials (such as powerpoints, pitch decks, website templates, images, social media posts to be used in connection with your participation in the Program (collectively, “R8 Tech Solutions Materials”).
