Your use of the Reseller Programs after such changes or modifications shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement and Reseller Program limitations as last revised. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement and the Reseller Program limitations as last revised, do not continue to use the Reseller Program(s).

6. provisions specific to basic/pro reseller programs

Definitions.

  Price Catalog is a list of Services available for resell within your Reseller Program, your cost and the minimum retail price for each Service. The Price Catalog is located in the Reseller Control Center.

•  “Reseller Control Center is the secure location within your account at our site where you can access our Services Price Catalog, select the Services you wish to resell, opt into Marketing Services, and otherwise control and manage your Reseller Program.

Service Pricing.  We will provide our Services to you according to our Price Catalog. You may set your own prices for the Services you resell, subject to the minimum retail price set by us.

Multi-Currency Pricing.  You will have the ability to opt in to multi-currency pricing for your Reseller site. Multi-currency pricing allows you to accommodate customers who may prefer to complete the checkout process in a currency other than U.S. Dollars. If you opt in to multi-currency pricing, you acknowledge and agree that (1) while we may offer Service pricing in various currencies, transaction processing is supported only in U.S. Dollars and a select number of the currency options displayed on this Site; and (2) the prices listed in the Price Catalog (including, but not limited to, the base buy rate, minimum retail price, and suggested retail price) located within the Reseller Control Center are not updated in real time. Accordingly, depending on currency exchange rates and other variables, it is possible that sales to customers in a currency other than U.S. Dollars may reduce your Commission Payments and/or result in negative Commission Payments.

Fraudulent Transactions.  You agree to hold us harmless and to indemnify us for and against transactions processed by us on your behalf that are fraudulent in nature. These fraudulent transactions could result from, but are not limited to, misrepresentations in the domain name registration or transfer process, or from the use of stolen or misappropriated credit cards.

Charging Your Customers.  You authorize us to charge each of your customers the dollar amounts designated by you for the Services they purchase via your Reseller site. We may charge your customer a small fee if the customer cancels a domain name registration within the five (5) day grace period and we refund the price of the domain name. We will not charge your customer a fee if we cancel a domain name registration during this period because of fraud.

Transaction Fees.  You will pay us $.25 per customer order plus 2.5% of the total order cost (collectively, the “Transaction Fees”). You acknowledge the Transaction Fees are subject to change from time to time, and are not subject to refund in the event a customer order for Services is refunded.

Hosting.  Your Basic or Pro Reseller site will be hosted by us and will be subject to the terms and conditions of our Hosting Agreement. All Basic and Pro Reseller sites are built on the securepaynet.net domain name.

Customer Support.  By default, we will provide 24/7 customer support services to you, and to your customers for the Services you resell; however, you can opt out of our customer support services for your customers in the Account Settings area of the Reseller Control Center if you so choose.

Commission Payment.  Commission Payment(s) are paid monthly and represent commissions earned in the immediately preceding month. For each Service sold via your Reseller site, your commission will be calculated as the difference between your sale price and cost, less the Transaction Fee and/or any applicable charge backs.

The payout date is the date that the Commission Payment is sent to you. Commission Payments may be paid by PayPal®, our Good As Gold program, by check, or by direct deposit (available for U.S. based Resellers only). Regardless of which payment method is utilized, if a payout date falls on a Saturday, the payout date will be the previous business day; if the payout date falls on a Sunday or holiday, the payout date will be the next business day.

•  PayPal:  Should you choose to utilize PayPal, you will be paid out monthly on the twenty-fifth (25th) day of the month. Please refer to the PayPal account set-up requirements for your country (which may be found here) to ensure your PayPal account has the ability to receive payments from third parties. We will pay any fees charged by PayPal, so they will not be deducted from your Commission Payment.

•  Good As Gold:  Should you choose to utilize Good As Gold, you will be paid out monthly on the twenty-fifth (25th) day of the month. A Five Dollar ($5.00) minimum threshold is required before payment will be made to those accounts.

•  Check:  Should you choose payment by paper check or fail to choose any other payment method, you will receive your Commission Payments by paper check. A One Hundred Dollar ($100.00) minimum threshold is required before a paper check will be issued.

Checks to U.S. Based Resellers.  Checks will be mailed out monthly on the last day of the month to U.S. based Resellers. You acknowledge and agree that a Twenty-Five Dollar ($25.00) check processing fee will be levied each time a Commission Payment check is printed.

Checks to Resellers Based Outside of the U.S.  Checks will be mailed out quarterly on the last day of the quarter to Resellers based outside of the U.S. Quarterly pay dates are February 28th, May 31st, August 31st, and November 30th. No check processing fee is charged for non-U.S. based Resellers.

•  Direct Deposit (available for U.S. based Resellers only):  In addition to the above Commission Payment Methods, Resellers based in the United States may also opt to receive their Commission Payments by direct deposit. Should you choose to utilize direct deposit, you understand that it is your responsibility to provide a valid U.S. bank account number and the related direct deposit information in the Payee Setup area of My Account at our website. Failure to provide a valid direct deposit account will cause your Commission Payments to be withheld pending receipt by us of proper direct deposit instructions. You can find the instructions on how to set up a direct deposit account by clicking on the “Payee Accounts” link found on the “Account Settings” page under “My Account” from your account at our website.

You hereby authorize us to initiate and post credit (positive) entries for Commission Payments to the direct deposit account you designate. Commission Payments may be debited or withheld on any orders refunded for fraud or charged back by the issuing bank. You will be paid out monthly on the twenty-fifth (25th) day of the month.

The authority granted to us by you or the direct deposit account owner will remain in full force and effect until we or the depository institution have received written notification from you or the direct deposit account owner that such authority has been revoked or until the termination of your Reseller account.

Charge Backs.  In the event of a credit card charge back related to your customer’s purchase of a Service, we will deduct the amount of the credit card charge from your Commission Payment. In the event that charge back experience is high, as determined by us, we reserve the right to hold back twenty percent (20%) of your monthly Commission Payments for ninety (90) days from the date the Commission Payment was to be paid.

Marketing Services.  We (and our related companies) will not market the Services with our branding to your customers; however, we (and our related companies) may market the Services with your branding to your customers. From time to time, we also may make various marketing services available to you.  The marketing services may include discounts, promotions, telemarketing services, email marketing services, and/or online advertising services (individually and collectively, “Marketing Services”). The Marketing Services are designed to assist you in more effectively marketing products and services to your customers.  The Marketing Services will be offered on an opt-in basis. You acknowledge and agree that (1) the Marketing Services are provided for convenience only, and we make no representations or warranties regarding the same; (2) we reserve the right to modify, change, or discontinue any aspect of the Marketing Services at any time; (3) if you opt in to (or out of) the Marketing Services, it may take up to ten (10) business days for your changes to be effective; (4) all Marketing Services will be selected by us, and you will not be permitted to customize the Marketing Services; and (5) your participation in some Marketing Services, particularly discounts and promotions, could reduce your Commission Payments and/or result in negative Commission Payments.

Trademark License Guidelines.  We grant you a non-transferable license to reproduce and display on your website the following trademarks and product names (“Marks”) in association with the resale of our products according to the limited specifications provided in this section: Express Email Marketing®, Quick Shopping Cart®, and Online File Folder®.  We also grant you a non-transferable license to reproduce and display the copyrighted legal agreements and documents associated with the offered Services and provided in the Reseller Control Center, provided you include the correct copyright string and do not modify the agreements and documents.

The Marks must be reproduced exactly as they appear within this section or as authorized within the Reseller Control Center, and must include the applicable ® or ™ symbol. Each display of a Mark must appear substantially distinct from your name or other text so there is no appearance that they are owned by you or that you have any association with them, other than your association with us. We may provide further specifications to you in addition to these general guidelines and you shall be obligated to adhere to them. You are prohibited from displaying the Marks in such a way that implies an affiliation, sponsorship, or endorsement of you by us other than your relationship with us as a reseller. In the event that we determine, in our sole discretion, that your use of the Marks, or any mark held by any of our affiliates, constitutes a trademark infringement or dilution, we may withhold Commission Payments until the issue is remedied and/or we may immediately terminate your account. All rights not expressly granted by us to you are reserved by us. We may audit your use of our Marks to determine compliance with this section, and we reserve the sole discretion to restrict your use of our Marks.
