Affiliate Terms of Service
HAUTE STOCK AFFILIATE AGREEMENT
This Agreement shall begin as of the date of acceptance by the Affiliate and remain in effect until ended in writing by either party. Any future affiliate agreements will require a separate written agreement.
Company shall provide Affiliate with a commission on new membership signups (minus the PayPal fee as described below) for each individual who signs up through the Affiliate’s link (“Affiliate Commission”). Affiliate will receive an initial commission payment on membership signups and then a recurring commission payment if the membership renews. The percentage of commission may change at any time without notice.
Affiliates cannot use their own link to self-refer. If a referral is considered to be self-referred a commission will not be paid. Referrals made to current Haute Stock members will not receive a referral commission.
Affiliate Commission shall be paid to Affiliate on the 15th of each month, the month after the purchase is made, as this will complete the refund period.
