ProtozoaHost affiliates receive a one-time referral fee for every hosting account they refer to our services. A referral is counted when a unique customer clicks on the affiliate tracking link and completes the signup process within 365 days, remaining active for at least 30 days.
Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral to receive the referral fee. No commission will be given for sales that occurred before joining the affiliate program.
The affiliate commission is approved after 30 days from the date of the client’s purchase. For example, if a client orders on 10-12-2023, the commission approval date would be 11-01-2023
A bonus of रू 500 will be credited to the affiliate account, and it will be paid to the affiliates once they reach a total commission of रू 5000. The first payout will consist of रू 500 (bonus) + रू 5000 (commissions).
To be eligible for payment, affiliates must earn a minimum of रू 5000 in commissions.
Affiliate commissions will be paid on the 15th of every month.
Affiliates will only be eligible for commissions if they refer new clients. Commissions for existing clients who place orders through affiliates will be declined.
If an existing client renews or purchases any other hosting service, the affiliate will not be eligible for the commission on such orders.
Affiliates will be paid only if the order process is completed successfully. If the client cancels the order, it will be treated as cancelled, and the affiliates will not be eligible for the commission.
Affiliate payments are processed through Bank Transfer and Nepali payment gateways only.
Affiliates are required to maintain accurate and up-to-date payee information in the affiliate system. We are not liable for any lost or stolen payments. It is the responsibility of the affiliate to keep their information current, including postal and email addresses, name, payment details, and any other personal information relevant to payment processing. Failure to provide accurate information may result in the forfeiture of referral fees. Unclaimed or returned referral fees due to invalid or insufficient address information may also be forfeited.
Furthermore, affiliates must ensure that they can accept payments. It is essential to verify that your bank can receive payments from companies based in Nepal.
Affiliates are fully responsible for covering any fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges, and other related expenses necessary to receive their referral fees.
The commission calculation in the affiliate system includes the total amount, comprising product/service cost, VAT, and payment gateway fees. However, before making the payout, we will deduct the VAT and payment gateway charges from your commission amount.
To monitor the status of their commission, affiliates can easily access their affiliate dashboard by logging into their affiliate account.
Reversals may occur under the following circumstances:
1. If a referral’s hosting account is not active for 30 consecutive days, the referral fees will be reversed.
2. Referral fees for referrals that downgrade their hosting package will be reversed.
3. Referral fees for referrals involved in chargebacks or found to be fraudulent (e.g., false information, fake/stolen credit cards, selling counterfeit goods) will be reversed, regardless of the time since the signup.
4. Referral fees for referrals who cancel their hosting account before you have met the 5000 payout minimum will be reversed.
