FootballTipsters Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THIS SALES REFERRAL PARTNER PROGRAM AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
This agreement (the “Affiliate Agreement”) is between you (the Affiliate, “you”, "your," and "yours") and us (FootballTipsters, "we," "us," and "our"). It describes how we will work together, as well as other aspects of our business relationship. It is a legal document so some of the language is necessarily “legalese”, but we have tried to make it as readable as possible.
The Affiliate Agreement applies to your participation in our FootballTipsters Affiliate Program. The terms of this Affiliate Agreement are so important that we cannot have you participate in our FootballTipsters Affiliate Program unless you agree to them.
We may periodically update this Affiliate Agreement. We might also choose to replace these terms in their entirety if, for example, the FootballTipsters Affiliate Program changes, ends, or becomes part of another partner program. If we update or replace the terms we will let you know via e-mail. If you don’t agree to the update or replacement, you can choose to terminate this Affiliate Agreement as described in Article 6.
By submitting the online application, you are agreeing that you have read and understand the contents of this Affiliate Agreement and that you shall be legally responsible for each and every term and condition.
This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application, and will continue unless terminated hereunder.
1. HOW YOU EARN COMMISSION FOR REFERRALS?
1.1. As an affiliate, you will earn between 8-13% on all successful referrals that result in a purchase on the FootballTipsters website (http://footballtipsters.net/) This means that if you refer a person to us (“the Client”), and he buys $129.00 tips from one of our tipsters, you will earn $10.32. If during the same month the Client spends a total of $5000, you will earn $650.
1.2. Commissions vary depending on the purchase amount that the person you referred makes within a calendar month. In that sense, you will receive:
- 1.2.1. 8% commissions if the total Client's purchases are between $1 and $999 a month;
- 1.2.2. 10% commissions if the total Client's purchases are between $1000 and $3000 a month;
- 1.2.3. 13% commissions if the total Client's purchases are $3001 and above.
1.3. We pay affiliate commissions during the first week of every month, normally the first business day of the month, but in any case, before the 7th of that same month. FootballTipsters has a 30-day money back guarantee, so we only pay commissions that are 30 days or older. If you refer a sale on February 8, the 30-day refund period ends in March, and you will get paid on the next payout date: the first week of April.
1.4. All affiliate commissions are exclusively paid via PayPal. You therefore need to own a PayPal account in order to participate in the FootballTipsters Affiliate Program.
1.5. There is no minimum payout balance.
1.6. There are no limits on the commissions an Affiliate is able to earn.
2. FootballTipsters AFFILIATE PROGRAM GUDELINES
2.1. We highly encourage that you use a number of approved methods of bringing Clients to FootballTipsters. Those may include, but are not limited to:
- 2.1.1. Sharing your exclusive special tracking link to friends, family, Facebook, or other social media.
- 2.1.2. Writing a blog post or review on your website, mobile app or other website that you own or is related to betting.
- 2.1.3. Lots of people want the FootballTipsters predictions but don’t know it yet! For example: a potential customer asks a question on a forum about great tipping predictions. In a helpful way, you reply that it’s possible that they find the best predictions on FootballTipsters and share your affiliate link.
2.2. Affiliate programs are win-wins: you get to promote the predictions that you like and believe in, we make sales, and you make money from the commission. However, we have certain prohibited methods of promoting. Those may include, but are not limited to:
- 2.2.1. Coupon sites;
- 2.2.2. Pretending to be formally associated with FootballTipsters. Affiliates are not employees and have no formal connection with GravityView.
- 2.2.3. Anything illegal, as described in 3.1.
- 2.2.4. Anything violating our intellectual property rights.
- 2.2.5. Confusing customers into thinking a site of yours is operated or endorsed by FootballTipsters (by copying our site’s design, for example).
