The amount of the commission varies from 10% to 40% of the amount received from every purchase (amount after deducting the applicable VAT and Shipping costs) depending on the performance.
10% (Level 1) – from 1 to 99 purchases (referrals)

40% (Level 4) – 400 and more purchases (referrals)
You solemnly declare that the above-agreed commission is reasonable and fair for the service provided and covers also any good will and clientele that SpotyPal will obtain from your participation in the Affiliate program and that you will have no other remuneration claim against us.
In case that our commission policy changes, we will inform you about the new rates that will be applicable to any purchase conducted after the new charges come in force. In case that you disagree with the new commission policy, you can terminate our co-operation as provisioned in article 5.3. above. Payment will be made in US dollars, unless we mutually modify this option.
7.3. Commissions are calculated and cleared at the beginning of each contractual month. In specific we review the sales/purchases conducted within the previous months in relation to the members attributed to every Affiliate Partner.
We both accept that the logs (track records) that we keep in the back office of Platform regarding the sales/purchases conducted within each contractual month are absolute proofs of whether you have established the right to receive the commission set in the present Agreement. Clearance will take place at the beginning of each contractual month. In any case, you will be entitled to receive payment only for those members that have fully paid.
7.4. We will send you an email with the commission you are entitled from the purchases of the previous month. In order to receive your payment, you must send us the following data:

In your invoice, you must include the month of your payment. We shall remit payment to you 15 days from receipt of the invoice. We reserve the right to refuse/suspend payment until we receive a valid invoice; we can request from you to resend us a new appropriate invoice if your initial invoice is not valid in our jurisdiction.
If you are a natural person, we shall remit payment to you within the first 15 days of the month following the month in which you earned your commission.
In any case whatsoever either a business or a natural person, you bear all the responsibility to abide by your tax rules and to comply with all relevant laws and obligations (as well as to receive any administrative or other license that might be required for the receipt of the commission for participation in the Affiliate Program).
7.5. We use a third party to handle all of the tracking and payment. Kindly review their payment terms and conditions.
