Effective February 1, 2018
Welcome to Widget Options Affiliate Program. Please take time to read this affiliate agreement between Widget-Options.com (Widget Options, We, Us, the Site, PHPBITS Creative Studio, www.phpbits.net) and our Affiliates (You – individual or business including all its owners, employees, and representatives). This agreement is devised to protect the interests of both parties.
To register as an Affiliate, we require you to have an active Extended Widget Options license, which you have used for at least 31 days.
Upon receipt of your registration application, we take a few days to go through review and moderation process. Please provide true and accurate information to ensure approval of your application.
If you are approved, we will give you your unique referral ID, which grants you access to your private Affiliate Page wherein you find information about your referrals and tools, such as referral links and banners, to promote Widget Options.
Commissions and payouts
All commissions shall go through an approval process to ensure that during the process of making sales, no violations are committed on the policies stipulated in this agreement.
You will get 20% Affiliate Commission for every absolute sale made through your referral link. A sale is considered absolute if it is no longer covered by the 30-day money back guarantee. Affiliate Commissions are paid in USD via PayPal every 15th day of the month. Minimum payout requirement is $50.
The following is an illustration of how you will get paid.
Table 1: Sales Record as of February 24, 2018
|Purchase||Price||Purchase Date||Status||Absolute Sale Date||20% Commission|
|Developer License||199.00||January 1, 2018||Absolute||January 30, 2018||39.80|
|Business License||59.00||January 10, 2018||Cancelled||–||0.00|
|Developer License||199.00||January 25, 2018||Absolute||February 23, 2018||39.80|
|Total Payout||79.60||Payout Date: March 15, 2018|
Table 1 above shows a purchase of one license on January 1, 2018. This purchase is covered by the money-back guarantee until January 30. This first sale is considered absolute on January 31 since there is no return within the 30-day period; therefore, the Affiliate can claim a commission for this sale, which is 20% of the purchase price. He can request for a payout on the following pay date provided that the commission value is no less than the required $50 minimum payout. However, since the commission value is below $50, he has to wait for another sale that covers the deficit. In this example, another purchase comes January 25, 2018, which becomes an absolute sale on February 23. His commission for this sale shall be added to the previous one. Since the total amounts to $79.60 (more than the minimum $50), he can now request for payment on the payout date (March 15, 2018) immediately preceded by the last purchase’s absolute sale date.
