Terms and Conditions of Shomee Ambassador program
Welcome to Shomee. We are happy to welcome you into our Ambassador Program that allows you to generate an automatic income by simply advertising our products.
This program allows you making our products known to your contacts and lets you earn a commission corresponding to the agreed percentage of the price of the first purchase made by the user. The sum of money owed to you will be immediately credited to your Paypal.com account.
This text has to be held as an additional part of Shomee’s general Terms and Conditions and everything defined in there has to be held as valid. In case of inconsistencies between the two, the Terms and Conditions of Shomee Ambassador Program will prevail.
Below in the text you will find explained details concerning how “Becoming an Ambassador” works, payments and further details concerning the Ambassador Program.
Definition of the terms
User, in these Terms and Conditions, is any subject browsing the Internet and coming to Shomee website and to the Ambassador page.
By buyer we refer to any user that has made a purchase in our marketplace.
Ambassador is any person adhering to Ambassador Program and subject to these Terms and Conditions. Any reference to you, your, yours has to be held as reference to the ambassador.
Shomee is the author of this document and any reference in this document as we, us or our should be held as referred to Shomee.
Becoming a Shomee Ambassador
Here you will find how Shomee Ambassador Program works.
For each user coming to our marketplace by means of a link or a banner that you have advertised you can earn a provision equal to the agreed percentage on the purchase price of the first product bought by that user.
From your personal account page on Shomee, you will receive an ambassador link (or referral link) that will be automatically generated from your username. You can paste it on your website or use banners with that link and advertise it on your website.
Any of your users coming to our store by means of that link and purchasing any product in our store, will grant you a commission on the purchase.
The Ambassador percentage for our products is set to 5% of the purchase sub-total. So, for example, if someone reaches us through your referral link and buys a product that costs $50.00, your provision is $2.50 (that is, 5% of the product purchase price).
Sharing of special products and promotions, such as events where there is no ticket cost, does not generate any ambassador commissions. Likewise, sharing of your own ticketed event does not generate any ambassador commissions.
An important section of the Terms and Conditions has to be devoted to cookies.
You should also remember that cookies are available for a three months time. If your users visit our marketplace, but they make a purchase only after this term, you cannot be entitled of the provision anymore.
Validity of right to provision
In order to be entitled to the provision, users that buy through your ambassador link must not be related to you or to your company.
In order to be entitled to the provision, users that reach our website shall neither have visited it before, nor have a Shomee account.
In this section you will find how payments of the provisions will be made.
Each provision you earn will be credited to your Paypal.com account, so you allow us to pay provisions to you and credit them to your account. You can require the payment of the credit in your Paypal.com account as soon as you reach the minimum amount of $10.
Shomee keeps your earnings safe until you require payment. Unless we decide to pay your earnings before, they will be kept safe for you until we get a request for payment from you.
The moment we get the request for payment, you will receive the payment by the 15th of the month. If the 15th happens to be holiday, you will receive the payment the first following working day available. The moment you send the request, we will ask you to enter your correct data. This will automatically generate an invoice where the ambassador declares to receive the payment of the requested amount, so, please, make sure the information you enter is correct. Payments will be done through PayPal.com and any possible expense for payment will be charged to you.
Keeping your earnings
If for any reason we cannot pay your earnings, we will keep them safe, included the circumstances in which we do not have the correct payment data or we are not able to contact you using the contact data you gave us. We will keep your earnings safe also if you ask us to make the payment to a person or an institution and it cannot be done for any reason, whether for legal or banking restrictions.
Any time we make a payment as ambassador, we are not responsible for currency conversion of your earnings from other currencies into your preferrerd currency, nor are we responsible for any possible conversion costs that your financial institution might apply.
If any of the purchases related to your ambassador earnings is subject to refund or chargeback, we can at our discretion withdraw also the concerned commission from your Ambassador earnings.
What do I need to be paid the provisions?
A: You need to reach the minimum threshold of $10 in provisions and to have a Paypal.com account.
Will my earnings be paid automatically when I reach the minimum threshold of $10?
A: Yes, they will be paid after reaching the minimum threshold of $10 and the purchase is beyond a three day hold period to allow for any cancellations or changes. You can also make a payment request from the Ambassador link in your My Account page.
“What happens if the buyer has come to Shomee by following two different ambassador links, my ambassador link and another person’s one?”
A: If users come to our marketplace through more than one ambassador link, the first one they access is to be held as the only one deserving the provision. For example, if one of your users reaches our marketplace through your link first, then once again through the ambassador link of another person, and only then purchases, you will be the one entitled of the provision for that purchase.
