Publisher relationship with PayV Affiliate Network
Enrollment to the affiliate program and Publisher approval process
User must complete the sign up form on the Website to apply to become a Publisher with PayV Affiliate Network. Each Publisher application is subject to review and approval by PayV Affiliate Network. All prospective Publishers need the official approval from PayV Affiliate Network before they can become Publishers. After we review your application, we will notify you of your acceptance or rejection to the Affiliate Program. We may accept or reject your application at our sole discretion for any reason.
Commissionable Action Validation Procedure:
PayV Affiliate Network will verify each Commissionable Action delivered by the Publisher. Upon receipt, all commissionable actions will be checked for validity, meaning that an individual person who accesses the Client Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program WebSite, is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person, is not using pre-populated fields and is not later determined by PayV Affiliate Network to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate.
PayV Affiliate Network will actively monitor Publisher activity using a combination of its proprietary software and third-party monitoring services. It is the obligation of Publisher to prove to PayV Affiliate Network that they are not committing fraud. In the case of a dispute, PayV Affiliate Network will hold Publisher payment in ‘Pending Status’ until Publisher has satisfactorily provided evidence that Publisher is not defrauding the system. If Publisher is unable to prove to PayV Affiliate Network that they are not committing fraud, Publisher will forfeit its entire commission and Publisher’s account will be terminated.
Publisher may, in its complete discretion, reject, cancel or remove at any time any Offer from the service for any reason without prior notice to PayV Affiliate Network. User may not forego any obligations to PayV Affiliate Network until resolution of any outstanding issues between both parties is completed.
PayV Affiliate Network will pay to the Publisher any Commissions earned monthly, provided that Publisher account balance is currently greater than $100. Accounts with a balance of less than $100 will roll over to the next month, and will continue to roll over monthly until 100$ is reached. PayV Affiliate Network reserves the right to charge back to User account any previously paid Commissionable Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Commissionable Action. Payment for Commissions is dependent upon Clients providing such funds to PayV Affiliate Network, and therefore, Publisher agrees that PayV Affiliate Network shall only be liable to the Publisher for Commissions to the extent that PayV Affiliate Network has received such funds from the Clients. Publisher hereby releases PayV Affiliate Network from any claim for Commissions if PayV Affiliate Network has not received such funds from the Clients.
PayV Affiliate Network shall automatically remit the payment to the Publisher for all Commissions payable on Net15 payment terms. Exclusive payment terms are subject to negotiation. All payments made to Publisher do not include, and Publisher shall pay, any sales, use or similar tax associated with such payment. In the event that Publisher has their own reporting for Commissionable Actions and Publisher claims a discrepancy, Publisher must provide PayV Affiliate Network with their reports within three (3) days after 30th day of the calendar month, and if PayV Affiliate Network’ and Publisher's reported statistics vary by more than 10% and PayV Affiliate Network determines that Publisher has used generally accepted industry methods to track Commissionable Actions, then PayV Affiliate Network and Publisher agree to make a good faith effort to arrive at a reconciliation. If the parties are unable to arrive at a reconciliation, then PayV Affiliate Network' numbers shall prevail.
