These Affiliate Program Terms of Service (“AP-TOS”) are a binding agreement between you and AppThemes, Inc., a California Corporation. You must agree to these terms of service in order to participate in the Affiliate Program. “You” or “Affiliate” means a person who is participating in the AppThemes Affiliate Program.
02. Description Of The Affiliate Program
If you refer a new customer to AppThemes.com You will receive a commission equal to 30% of that new customer’s first cash payment (“Referral Commission”). If the referred customer makes a purchase that involves a recurring payment, then you will receive 30% of each recurring payment.
You can also earn a second tier Referral Commission of 10%. When an AppThemes customer that you previously referred refers a new customer, you will receive a commission equal to 10% of the new customer’s first payment.
In either case, if the referred customer returns to AppThemes directly, without coming from your website, and makes purchases, those purchases will not pay a Referral Commission.
Affiliate payments from the previous month are typically made by the 20th (of the following month). A minimum balance of at least $100 is required before an affiliate will be paid out.
