Affiliate Agreement

This agreement describes the entire terms and conditions for participation in the DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit Affiliate Program.

In this agreement, the term "Affiliate" refers to you (the applicant).  Wherever the agreement refers to "you" or "your", it means "the Affiliate"; "we" or "our" refers to DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit.

Affiliate Site

DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit will create a unique URL for you for each product when you submit a complete Affiliate Enrolment Form.

Commissions

You will receive a percentage of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through your Affiliate link less the charges outlined by PayPal.  The commission percentage depends upon the product you choose to promote.  For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered. Commissions will only be paid on sales which are made through qualified Affiliate links.

Payment

You will receive your commissions paid directly to your PayPal account.  If a customer requests a refund, our cart allows us to initiate a refund in a way that will AUTOMATICALLY return that portion of the payment you received from the sale to DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit so that it can be refunded to the customer.  If you don't have sufficient funds in your PayPal account at the time of the refund, you will be responsible for paying PayPal those funds as they will immediately issue the refund to DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit. 

In the event of a refund, you are responsible for returning the funds to DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit and/or PayPal to cover the refund without question or delay.

For ClickBank sales, ClickBank will send a check for the applicable commissions within the framework of their policies.  If any order that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer, or if there are any returned checks or charge-backs, the amount will be deducted by ClickBank from the next payment.


Order Fulfilment

DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer on the Affiliate Site.

Customers

Customers who purchase products and services through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of DirectionsU and/or Joint Venture Summit.  Accordingly, all DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers.  We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time.  Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. DirectionsU and Joint Venture Summit policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.
