Partner Program Agreement

Last Updated: May 1, 2020

1. CodeisCode Partner Program Agreement

This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the CodeisCode Partner Program. In this agreement, the term “Partner” refers to you (the “Partner”). In this agreement, CodeisCode refers to the product owner and publisher.

Only Certified eLearning Platform Architects or previously accepted Distribution Partners have the ability to enroll in the Partner Program. The CodeisCode Partner program is managed through our own internal Partner Program Management System.

2. Modification

We may modify any of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modifications may include, but not limited to changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures, and Partner  Program rules.

If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.

3. Enrollment

To enroll in the Partner program, you must pass certain Certification Exams in the eLearnCommerce Academy or submit a Distribution Partner application and be approved. Applications are processed every Friday and applicants will be notified of their acceptance status as soon as possible after their information is reviewed.

4. Partner URL

Once a Partner you will be issued a special URL that will be unique to you and you only and will allow you to refer new customers and get paid for partner program referrals.

Alternatively, Partners can execute sales without the use of a special URL by working directly with an eLearnCommerce or CodeisCode Sales representative.

5. Commissions

Partners will receive 15% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Partner links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product).

Commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher, CodeisCode commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, but they will return thereafter to the regular 15% commission rate.

For a sale to generate a commission to a Partner, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure order system.

Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated.

Partners will not receive commissions on sales made to themselves, business entities owned and/or co-owned by them, or family members and relatives.

On the 10th day of each month, Sales statements will be produced containing actual sales generated by the Partner and sent to the Partner by email. Partner will then proceed and issue an Invoice to CodeisCode Marketing & Consulting LLC – 427 N. Tatnall St. 19801 Wilmington DE – USA.

Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Partner links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate.

6. Payment

CodeisCode pays affiliates via a PayPal account, provided to us when a member joins. If the PayPal email changes, it is the responsibility of the affiliate to notify the Partner Program to ensure proper commission payments. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.

Depending on which payment Service provider was used by the customer, referred payments to the Partner can be delayed for up to 180 days after the original purchase date.

At least 150$ worth of commissions needs to be accrued to generate a Payout to the Partner. If the Partner commissions do not reach this threshold within an accounting period the commissions will be carried to the next accounting period and paid out as soon as 150$ worth of commissions has been reached.

The payment of the commissions will be executed within 30 days upon reception of the Invoice.

7. Order Fulfillment

CodeisCode will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer via affiliate links. Partners are not authorized to collect payments or sell any CodeisCode products from other websites as a “reseller” and no “resale” rights are granted in ANY way. Partners are not authorized to sell any of these products on eBay or other auction sites. Partners are not authorized to give away copies of any of these products.

CodeisCode will also be solely responsible for all customer service inquires. All affiliates understand and acknowledge that no physical products will be shipped.

Customers who purchase products and services through the CodeisCode Partner Program will be deemed to be customers of CodeisCode. Accordingly, all 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. CodeisCode policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.
