Our Reed Music Members [beta] affiliate program is designed to reward you for spreading your love of Reed Music to your colleagues, friends and students. Listed below are the terms and conditions associated with our affiliate program.
Beta: Our Member program is new and as we fine-tune the details, the program will remain in beta. Terms and conditions may change at any time.
Payment: Affiliates are paid a 25% commission for each sale generated through an affiliate link. The 25% is calculated on the total of your shopping cart excluding GST (Australian Tax). Your affiliate links are available in the members area to spread and once clicked remain active for 30 days via cookies.
Only Reed Music Members with an active account can receive affiliate payments. Membership need to be renewed each year. Expired memberships lose all affiliate referrals.
All affiliate referrals are tracked automatically through special affiliate links. While Reed Music appreciate all kinds of referrals, commissions are payable only on affiliate links provided by Reed Music to our members.
Payments are processed and sent out around the 1st of each month. Affiliates must generate a balance of $50 or more before their account is eligible for payment. Affiliates can receive commission payments via PayPal only.
Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that all payee information is up to date in the affiliate system. We are not responsible for lost/stolen payments. The affiliate is responsible for keeping all information up to date including email addresses, name or any other personal information that will impact the ability to issue a valid commission payment. Failure to provide current information may result in forfeiture of any commissions due to you. Commissions that are left unclaimed or are returned for invalid or insufficient address information or for other reasons may be forfeited as well.
Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments. Please ensure that your PayPal account can accept payments from an Australian-based company.
Affiliates are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their commissions. Please check with your local banking institution or PayPal to find out if any of these apply for your account.
Referrals that are found to be fraudulent (false information, fake/stolen credit cards etc.) will be reversed regardless of the amount of time that has passed since the signup occurred.
Referrals that issue a credit card charge back will be reversed.
Affiliates MAY NOT offer cash back, rewards or incentives.
Affiliates MAY use the approved banners and ad text code found in the affiliate management center.
Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that their tracking code is working properly before sending traffic to our servers. Any modification to the links is the sole responsibility of the affiliate – commissions will not be paid for tracking errors caused by editing, masking or tampering with your links.
Affiliates MAY NOT use cookie stuffing techniques that set the tracking cookie without the user actually clicking on the referral link (for example a 1x1 pixel iframe).
The use of redirected pages and links to send a user to our site is prohibited. Example: you may not have a PPC link on a search engine that redirects the user to our site.
Domain forwarding is prohibited - you may not purchase a domain and set it to forward directly to our site using your affiliate link.
Affiliates MAY NOT copy our website or portions of it and display them on their own site or subdomain.
Deactivation: Affiliate accounts may be deactivated at any time without warning or notice. Your account WILL BE DEACTIVATED and commissions set to $0 for failure to comply with the Affiliate Terms and Advertising Compliance contained herein.
Any false or misleading advertising or suspected fraudulent activity associated with your affiliate account will result in immediate deactivation.
Affiliate accounts generating a large number of fraudulent accounts will be deactivated.
If you would like to discontinue your affiliate status, simply remove your affiliate links and no longer promote them. You may also delete your affiliate account.
