We pay a one-time referral charge to the affiliates for every hosting account referred. A referral is determined when a unique customer first clicks on the unique affiliate tracking link and completes the hosting sign up process within 365 days and is an active customer for 30 days.
The affiliate account should be active during the referral. Note that no affiliate fee will be provided to your affiliate account for any sale that happened before you registered for the affiliate program.
The affiliate commission is sanctioned after completing 30 days from the date of customer purchase. For example, if the client order date is 4-6-2020, the commission will be sanctioned on 4-7-2020.
MotherHost offers ₹ 1,000 sign up bonus that is credited to your affiliate account. The affiliate can get this bonus when the affiliate earns ₹ 2,000 as commission. Therefore, the first payout will be ₹ 1,000 (sign up bonus) + ₹ 2,000 (commission).
It is mandatory for the affiliates to earn a minimum of ₹ 2,000 before they start getting the payment.
The payment of the affiliate commission is made on the 15th of every month.
Affiliates are entitled to the commission only if they refer new clients to MotherHost. If any of the existing clients have placed orders through the affiliates, the affiliates will not be entitled to commission and the commission will not be given.
If any of the existing clients renews a hosting package or signs up for any other hosting service, then no commission is given to the affiliates in this situation.
Payment to the affiliates will be made only if the order process is entirely completed. In case the order is cancelled by the client, then the order will be considered as ‘cancelled’ and the affiliates will not receive a commission for this.
Affiliate payment is made through NEFT Bank Transfer and PayPal. For the NEFT transactions, it is important for the affiliates to mention their bank details. The affiliates can send the details to email@example.com
The affiliates are accountable for making sure that all the payee related information is updated in the affiliate system. We are not liable for any lost or stolen payments. It is the responsibility of the affiliate to keep all the information updated that includes email address, postal address, payment information, name or any other individual information that will have an effect on the issuance of a valid payment. Failure in providing the current information might result in not payment of any affiliate fees. If any referral fees are unclaimed or if referral fees are retuned because of invalid or insufficient address information or for any other reasons, such payments will be forfeited.
The affiliates are responsible for ensuring that they can receive the payments. Ensure that your PayPal account or bank can receive the payment.
Affiliates are responsible for any and all taxes, charges, exchange rates, surcharges and any other expenses that are caused for receiving the referral fees. Please verify with your local banking institution or PayPal to know if any of these charges are applicable for your account.
As a result of high volume of credit card frauds and because of the cancellation rates, MotherHost reserves the right to put the referral fees on hold for a time period up to 45 days for verification purpose. MotherHost also reverses the right to deny the referral fees in the following situations:
- If we are not able to collect the funds.
- If the order is fraudulent.
- If the customer cancels the sign up within the initial 30 days.
- If we come to know that the referral commission was earned incorrectly for any other reason.
MotherHost’s affiliate system calculates the amount of commission along with the total amount that comprises of product/service cost, GST and the payment gateway charges. We will eliminate the GST and payment gateway charges from your affiliate commission amount before processing the payout.
Affiliates can view the status of their commission through the affiliate dashboard. For this, all you have to do is login to your affiliate account.
Referral fees will be reversed in the following situations:
- It is mandatory for the referrals to have an active hosting account for at least 30 days otherwise the referral fees will be reversed.
- In case the referrals downgrade their hosting package the fees will be reversed.
- Referrals that give a charge back or if they are found to be deceitful (using fake/stolen credit cards, false information, selling counterfeit products etc.), in this case the referral fees will be reversed.
- Referrals that cancel the hosting before you meet the benchmark of ₹ 2,000 minimum payout will be reversed.
