NoPBX Affiliate Program

The NoPBX affiliate program is a program whereby participating organisations can earn money by promoting our website to visitors to their websites. This unique Affiliate program is aimed at websites and other portals and digital channels that wish to earn long term ongoing revenue rather than once off revenue for their referrals.

In order to become an affiliate, you first need to fill in and submit our affiliate application.  By submitting this application to us, you agree to be bound by and adhere to the terms of this Affiliate Policy, and all revisions hereof.  Acceptance of you as an affiliate shall be communicated to you by us in writing and shall be at our sole discretion.

 

General

“We/us” means Trabel (Pty) Ltd, “our website” means our website(s) including www.nopbx.co.za, and “the portal” means www.portal.nopbx.co.za, a “customer” means a person or entity who is a customer of NoPBX, and a “Referral Customer” is a customer referred to us by you that has signed on the portal using your affiliate link.  “Customer Purchases” are all amounts paid by a Referral Customer to us for the use of the NoPBX™ service.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate customer referrals are tracked using a "cookie" that is set when the person clicks on one of your specially formatted links. You will be given the format of your links when you become an affiliate.

When your affiliate link is clicked, we will set a "cookie" on the web browser of the person who clicked the link. The result is that if the person uses that browser to register as a customer on the portal before the cookie expires or is removed, then you will be recorded as that customer's referrer. The cookies that we set expire after a month, unless the person cleans them away. If the person already has one of our referral cookies set when your link is clicked, the latest cookie (yours) takes precedence.

Referral customers are only recorded using the mechanism above. We cannot set or change a customer's referrer once that customer has registered on the portal.

You will also be given affiliate-level access to our management portal, where you will be able to track your customer sign-ups and purchases in real time.

Affiliate Earnings and Payment

You will earn 4% (four percent) of the value of all Customer Purchases made by each Referral Customer that you refer, in perpetuity subject to the “Termination” provisions below.

Affiliate earnings are calculated and paid monthly on the first day of each month, and are paid out whenever the accumulative unpaid affiliate commission is greater than R100. This calculation will take into account payments that were made in the previous month and will also include unpaid commission from previous months if the R100 payment threshold was not met.

If we change the affiliate commission rates, then the new rates will apply to all customers that are acquired by you from that point onward.

Payments will only be processed to a South African bank account, we can not process payment to any international banks or to credit cards or to other account types.

Tax Invoices

You and we acknowledge that section 20(2) and 21(4) of the Value-Added Tax Act, No. 89 of 1991, (the Vat Act) make provision for us to issue tax invoices, credit and debit notes for supplies/services made by you to us, and you hereby grant permission to us to do so.

You and we further acknowledge that the Commissioner for the South African Revenue Service has issued guidelines regarding the requirements that must be satisfied before we can issue tax invoices, credit and debit notes for supplies/services made by you to us and acknowledge that the supplies/services concerned comply with the binding general ruling contained in Interpretation Note No. 56.

We hereby undertake to issue tax invoices, credit and debit notes in compliance with the provisions of the VAT Act, to provide you with a tax invoice, credit and debit note within the periods stipulated in the VAT Act, and to retain a copy of tax invoices, credit and debit notes.  You hereby undertake not to issue any tax invoice, credit or debit note for taxable supplies falling within this agreement and further acknowledge that in the event that a tax invoice, credit or debit note is issued by you, it shall be deemed not to be a tax invoice, credit or debit note for the purposes of the VAT Act.

You and the we undertake to notify each other if either of us ceases to be a VAT vendor, changes our VAT registration number, sells our enterprise, or part of our enterprise; or materially changes our enterprise in a way that could affect this agreement.

Other

You may not make use of your affiliate links as part of another campaign funded buy us. For example, if we have opted to buy paid advertising on your web site, or if you are charging us for clicks or impressions, then the links that you use may not be your affiliate links (ie. include your affiliate id).

The affiliate program is only applicable to owners of their own websites, for example you cannot apply for a link that is intended for a Facebook business page.

You may not include our links on your website if your website contains material that is of an offensive, racist, pornographic, or otherwise inappropriate nature, which will be determined in our sole discretion.

You agree not to use cookie "stuffing," or other techniques which may incorporate a tracking code without specific knowledge of the online user.

In connection with your participation in the program you will comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, judgements, decisions, and other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you, including laws that govern marketing email.

Any product related data provided by us to you is to be used only on your website as specified on your affiliate application and approved by us and may only be used for the purpose of driving web traffic to our website, to increase the customer signups on the portal. This applies to all data provided by us in original form and also parts and modified versions thereof. Any page on your website that makes use of product information provided by us must have a clear and visible link to relevant product page or pages on our website. Product data must be treated confidentially and may not be disseminated to third parties other than as outlined above.

Termination

Either we or you may close your affiliate account at any time and without notice. In the event of such termination, you agree to remove all links to us from your website and delete all product related data provided by us from your computers within 14 days of the closure of the affiliate account, including data in original form and also parts and modified versions thereof.

No further commissions will accrue to closed accounts if you close the account or if we close the account due to a breach of this policy by you.  However, if we close your account for any reason other than breach, then commission will continue to accrue to the closed account for a maximum of: the same number of months as the account was operational and in good standing, or 24 (twenty-four) months.

These affiliate program terms should be read in conjunction with the normal NoPBX Terms and Conditions of Use.
