- DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM
Hire Authority grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable limited license to use the MBI Web Course Referral Program in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.
The MBI Web Course Referral Program allows you to provide a platform for advertising Hire Authority’s MBI Web Course via your “Web Site” or “Publishing Location” (such as an electronic newsletter or blog), thereby driving traffic to Hire Authority’s Web Site or Web Site content, whereby you may earn a portion of the revenue generated (a “Commission Payment”) if a person or entity that is not you (a “Visitor”) purchases the Hire Authority MBI Web Course(s) using your unique, traceable MBI Web Course Referral Program link contained on your Web Site or Publishing Location.
After being referred to Hire Authority’s Web Site or Web Site content from your Web Site or Publishing Location, Visitors must complete their purchase in order for you to receive a Commission Payment. Please note that you will only receive a Commission Payment for purchases completed that used your designated MBI Web Course Referral Program link; subsequent purchases made by the same Visitor are commissionable only if your designated MBI Web Course Referral Program link is used again. The only Hire Authority product eligible for a Commission Payment is the MBI Web Course. No other Hire Authority products or services are eligible for a Commission Payment.
You acknowledge and agree that only purchases completed through Hire Authority’s Web Site or Web Site content will be eligible for a Commission Payment. No purchases taken or completed over the telephone will be eligible for a Commission Payment. You are not eligible for a Commission Payment on purchases made by you, your employees, agents, representatives, or contractors.

- CALCULATION OF COMMISSION PAYMENTS
Commission Payments Generally
Hire Authority shall use reasonable efforts to provide you with accurate Commission Payments. You acknowledge and agree that in calculating your Commission Payment Hire Authority’s determination regarding the same shall be the final and binding determination. Upon your cancellation of the Service, any funds remaining in your MBI Web Course Referral Program account shall be paid to you in accordance with your selected payment option.
The commission structure (the “Commission Structure”) for the MBI Web Course Referral Program shall be based on the MBI Web Course purchase price minus any promotional code discount. No other products purchased by Visitor are eligible for Commission Payment. The Commission Structure may be comprised of (i) a percentage rate per MBI Web Course sale, (ii) a fixed amount per MBI Web Course sale, or (iii) a combination of both. In addition, the Commission Structure may vary by Affiliate. Hire Authority expressly reserves the right to change or modify the Commission Structure at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting to this Site without need for further notice to you.
Hire Authority will hold Commission Payment on all orders for the MBI Web Course for thirty (30) days from the purchase date. After this time, Commission Payments will be paid out at the end of the month in accordance with the provisions below and will represent Commission Payments earned in the immediately preceding month. Commission Payments may be debited or withheld on any orders refunded by Hire Authority or charged back by the issuing bank (for fraud or any other reason). Hire Authority reserves the right to extend the payment date on orders suspected of fraudulent or abusive activity.
Commission Payments for Domestic Affiliates (Affiliates Based in the U.S.) and International Affiliates (Affiliates Based Outside the U.S.)
The payout date is the date that the Commission Payment is sent to you. Commission Payments may be paid by PayPal® or check in U.S. Dollars.
Domestic and International Affiliates utilizing PayPal will be paid at the end of the month on the thirtieth (30th) day of the month. Should the thirtieth (30th) day of the month fall on a Saturday, the payout date will be on the previous business day. Should the thirtieth (30th) day of the month fall on a Sunday or holiday, the payout date will be on the next business day. February Commission Payments will be made on the last business day of the month. No minimum threshold is required for Commission Payment to be paid. If the payment amount exceeds $20,000.00, it will be split into two PayPal payment transactions. Please refer to the PayPal account set-up requirements for your country, which may be found here, to ensure your PayPal account has the ability to receive payments from third parties. PayPal transaction fees for Hire Authority to pay Affiliate will be the responsibility of Hire Authority and will not be deducted from your Commission Payment.
Domestic and International Affiliates who fail to choose PayPal as their payment option will receive their Commission Payment via paper check, which shall be mailed out monthly at the end of the month on the thirtieth (30th) day of the month. Should the thirtieth (30th) day of the month fall on a Saturday, the payout date will be on the previous business day. Should the thirtieth (30th) day of the month fall on a Sunday or holiday, the payout date will be on the next business day. February Commission Payments will be made on the last business day of the month. A One Hundred Dollar ($100.00) minimum threshold is required before a check will be issued. Domestic Affiliates receiving Commission Payments via paper check acknowledge and agree that a Five Dollar ($5.00) check processing fee will be levied each time a Commission Payment check is printed. No check processing fee is charged for International Affiliates.
