Calculation of Commissions

The calculation of commissions payable to you is at the sole discretion of Takabis and subject to change without prior notice. This is the system by which your affiliate commissions will be calculated:
When someone clicks through your affiliate link to Takabis.com, AND your affiliate cookie is correctly set on their computer, AND within the cookie period that person places an order and pays for the order, AND the order is successfully delivered, AND a period of 16 days has passed since the delivery of the order, your affiliate account will be credited 6% of the total products value of the order. (The shipping fee of the order is not included in the commission calculation.)

At the second tier: When someone clicks through your affiliate link to Takabis.com, AND your affiliate cookie is correctly set on their computer, AND within the cookie period that person successfully signs up as a Takabis Affiliate, AND that 2nd tier affiliate successfully refers a sale (as described above), your affiliate account will be credited 1% of the total products value of the order.

Please note the following important conditions:

The cookie duration is 30 days;
Takabis cannot guarantee that the cookie generated by your affiliate clickthrough will be preserved – users are at liberty to block, delete, or overwrite cookies;
Commissions cannot and will not be calculated or credited manually;
If for ANY reason our online system did not credit a particular order to your affiliate ID we cannot and will not credit it to your account manually;

Commissions are shown in your Affiliate Account on Takabis.com before they are actually credited: if the order that was made by your referred buyer is not paid for and delivered, commission will not be paid;

Commissions initially shown as credited to you from delivered orders may be withdrawn if the order in question changes status due to payment issues (such as a credit card chargeback or Paypal reversal) or item returns;
Ordering goods for yourself or your dropship customers through your own affiliate link is not allowed. If Takabis finds you did this previously, Takabis reserves the right to debit any erroneously paid-out amount from any associated affiliate or wholesale buyer account.

The Affiliates Program is designed for crediting affiliates for referring new buyers, not collecting rebates on your own or close partners’ repeat business. We reserve the right to void any commissions we consider to have been generated by your deliberate cooperation with partners to earn commissions as virtual rebates on their repeat orders. All commissions are reviewed for suspicious patterns before being paid out.
Takabis Affiliates are bound by the normal terms and conditions if buying from Takabis as a Wholesale Buyer, and Takabis undertakes no responsibilities promoting or endorsing your products and services.

Payment of Commissions

Takabis will pay you your affiliate commissions based on the following conditions:
Your commission earned up to and including a calendar month is paid within the first 15 days of the succeeding month;

All commissions are paid through Paypal ONLY, to the paypal account email address you specified during signup;
The minimum commission payout is USD 50.00 (e.g. if you have $51 in commissions you will be paid the full $51 through Paypal on the monthly payout day, but if you only have $49 you will have to wait until you go over $50 before you get paid anything at all);

If payments are unclaimed Takabis does not undertake responsibility to contact you as Paypal will already send more than one email reminding you to claim / collect the funds; it is your responsibility to keep your contact information up to date;
If an unclaimed payment is returned to Takabis by Paypal, we will attempt re-payment if you contact us;
Unclaimed payments over 90 days old will not be paid. If an affiliate commission is accidentally overpaid by Takabis, you agree to promptly remit such excess payment upon notification by us. We may withhold further commission payments until the previous overpayment is resolved.
You are wholly responsible for declaring your income from the Takabis Affiliate Program to the taxation and legal authorities in your country. Takabis undertakes no responsibility in assisting you with financial or legal paperwork relating to your Affiliate Commissions. Takabis reserves the right to charge for services providing formal paperwork or other confirmations of your Affiliate Commissions.

Your contact information will only be used to contact you with information about the Takabis affiliate program and Takabis. Your information will never be shared with any third parties. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or with the consent of the other party, each of the parties agrees that all information, including, without limitation, the terms of this Agreement, business and financial information, customer and vendor lists, and pricing and sales information, concerning us or you, respectively, or any of our affiliates provided by or on behalf of any of them shall remain strictly confidential and shall not be utilized, directly or indirectly, by such party for its own business purposes or for any other purpose except and solely to the extent that any such information is generally known or available to the public through a source or sources other than such party hereto or its affiliates.
