The following terms are applicable to customers that are also affiliates of MyTradeHost, and affiliates who are not customers, but enter into an affiliate agreement described henceforth with MyTradeHost and with written approval by MyTradeHost.
Commissions are only paid on transactions that have remained valid and active on MyTradeHost networks for at least 60 days. For example, commissions earned during January will mature after March. Thus, depending on when your referrals join and when the transactions take place, your payment may take anywhere from 60 days to 90 days to mature and be eligible for payment.
Current MyTradeHost customers are encouraged to participate in the program and refer business to MyTradeHost. However, customers will not receive payment for affiliate transactions associated with their own account or payment method. Or any free or promotional sale items. Customers can refer new customers but will not be compensated if they are attempting to receive a commission on transactions done under any account that they are already associated with or using any of their own payment methods.
The following are specific terms you agree to as a MyTradeHost affiliate, and are bound to for acceptance into the affiliate program. These terms may change at any time for all existing or future affiliate accounts.
Upon your acceptance, MyTradeHost will provide you with a URL coded to specifically identify you, which will allow you to create a link to the MyTradeHost.com web site. You may post this link in any location, as many times as you like subject to the remaining terms of this agreement regarding acceptable links.
You agree to take full responsibility for ensuring the proper and continuing operation of your coded URL. You agree that you will notify MyTradeHost if your coded URL ceases to function or ceases to function properly. Under no circumstances will MyTradeHost pay out any commissions to You if your referral does not register and can be tracked through your coded URL.
MyTradeHost agrees to track the customers referred to MyTradeHost.com website via the link provided to you for that purpose. MyTradeHost utilizes cookies to maintain tracking information for up to 60 days. MyTradeHost will pay you a commission for each such referral made in compliance with this agreement pursuant to the commission schedule and the terms set forth in this affiliate agreement. All referrals must be logged by the tracking url and client internet web browser for commission to be earned.
It is important that your referrals use the provided link. Referral claims or claims by more than one affiliate for the same referred customer are determined solely by the referral logs. If the referral is not found in the logs for the affiliate, then affiliate commission shall not be earned or paid out.
MyTradeHost agrees to pay affiliate commissions upon receipt of all payment requirements to the specified destination which are on file in the Affiliates account. Any and all transaction or payment charges will be paid from the Affiliate account. The affiliate must have a minimum withdrawal amount of $100.00 USD to request a withdrawal from MyTradeHost.

If your account(s) with MyTradeHost has outstanding or overdue invoices, debts or any outstanding balances due to products sold to you or services rendered for you or on your behalf or for any reasons whether in writing or verbally, no affiliate commissions will be paid out until you have completely paid your invoices, debts and outstanding balances owed to MyTradeHost.

Commissions are paid on a recurring basis for each new account purchased via your coded URL subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

Affiliate commissions are only paid for “Standard” level dedicated server sales at 5% of the sale of the server, and 5% for VPS server sales of Heavy-Duty or better level VPS editions. 10% and 15% level commissions are conditionally available for higher volume affiliates, upon review and acceptance by our business department (please contact us if you intend to achieve 25 or more active clients to the MyTradeHost Affiliate Program). The commission will be calculated after discounts or promotions to referred customers, and will not include certain add-ons or extras.

Further, commissions are not paid on any other third-party software, setup or IT services purchased by the customer.

A “qualified commission” is one for which the new account which is the subject of the commission has remained in good standing continuously for at least 365 days from its inception. MyTradeHost shall make all decisions as to whether any commission is a “qualified commission.” If at any time after a commission has been awarded and/or paid and the related customer’s account is terminated, charged back or canceled, for any reason, this commission will be revoked and subtracted from any standing or future commissions account balance you may have.
Payments will only be paid once your commissions account balance reaches a minimum level of at least One Hundred Dollars ($100) owed. MyTradeHost shall make no payment to you until this minimum balance is achieved. Commissions will be credited to You 60 days after a sale meeting the minimum level was completed. Commissions are paid within 7 to 30 business days of the payout month.
Commissions can be paid in any of four available methods. Check, Bank Wire, PayPal, Amazon Simple Pay, Google Checkout or Master/Visa Credit Card. You are responsible for any transaction costs, and all transaction costs will be deducted from your balance prior to the payment. If MyTradeHost subsequently incurs any transaction costs, including but not limited to credit card fees, bank fees, charge backs or return fees, then You will be deducted the transaction costs from your Affiliate account or credit card on file.
For example, using PayPal, the affiliate will get a deduction of 2.9% (or more depending on their country and circumstances, and the going-rate at the payment processor or bank) of the total amount plus a flat rate of $.30 per payment; this deduction is similar to a credit card processing fee. For Bank Wire, applicable fees such as $25 for domestic, $35 for international banks apply.
Bank wires and check require a minimum of $500 withdrawal for processing by our billing department.
You will provide the necessary information for each payment method. However, MyTradeHost reserves the right to pay you with any method it deems necessary.
Due to the tax laws of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the United States Department of Treasury requires that every individual, partnership, corporation or legal entity who is receiving affiliate commissions must submit a completed and signed W8-BEN or W9 form. Before we can conduct affiliate payouts, we must have the completed and signed form in our possession and made available to the IRS.
The W9 form is for US residents whereas the W8-BEN form is for international affiliates. To avoid any delays in your affiliate payments, please submit the appropriate document, properly filled out and signed. You must also get acknowledgement via written email or mail that MyTradeHost received and processed the completed forms. Without written confirmation for your records, you may not consider the tax filing requirement complete.
If you fail to fill out a W-9 or W8-BEN (or any applicable government form), your payout and affiliate balance will become void and forfeit. You further agree that failing to properly fill, provide tax identification, sign and return a requested W-9 or W8-BEN (or any applicable government form) within 30 days of request after notification from MyTradeHost by mail, email, phone or support ticket, you agree to forfeit your commissions, and agree that your affiliate commission balance will be cleared to zero and closed.
