Any sales/purchases by customers that have a claw back period or within a refundable period will not be a commissionable sale(s), therefore no commissions will be payable. Also Refer to clause D.
D. Payment of Referral Commissions/Fee's
All Referral Commissions/Fee's are payable less any processing fee's charged by or incurred through using an Online Payment Processor to bill, charge and collect the applicable purchase/sale price. In other words the Referral Commissions/Fee's are payable on the net purchase/sales figure and not the listed gross amount as the intended Retail/Discounted or Wholesale Price as listed on the Bookstrap & Snazzy Promotions [NZ] sales/pitch page.
Unless otherwise stated in your personal and private members area of Bookstrap & Snazzy Promotions [NZ] the commissions payable will be calculated at the agreed amount of $ or % as a Referral Partner or designated membership level on the NET proceeds as stated above and listed clearly in your private Referral Partner/members area of the payment processor used for the sale of the product, goods or service at the time of purchase by the customer, with the express exception if Paypal.com is directly used by Bookstrap & Snazzy Promotions [NZ] as the designated online payment processor.
Paypal.com Referral Commissions/Fee's become payable when the Referral Partner's account reaches a minimum payment threshold of $100 and are subject to the following criteria being met.
Referral Commissions/Fee's are paid within 30 days from the end of the month in which the sale becomes free and unencumbered from any/all portions being refundable. In other words no Referral Commissions/Fee's shall be paid until 30 days after the refund period of 60 days.
For example: A commissionable Sale was made on 1st February, refund period expires 60 days; Referral Commissions/Fee's are due and payable on the 15th day of the month following; in which the sale becomes free and unencumbered from any/all portions being refundable, then the Referral Commissions/Fee becames eligible to be paid.
If any Referral Commissions/Fee's paid are subsequently part of a refund within our acceptable refund period of 60 days then any Referral Commissions/Fee's shall immediately be recoverable from the Referral Partner's balance unless the refundable amount is more than the Referral Partner's account balance is, in which case the refundable amount will be deducted from any and all future Referral Commissions/Fee's payable. In such a case that the Referral Partner's account is or becames inactive then the Referral Partner's will be liable for the repayment of the commission amount paid in full immediately.

If a transaction incurs a charge-back, or if an online transaction is not completed in every way, no Referral Commissions/Fee payment is due to the Referral Partner. If a Referral Commissions/Fee has already been paid, then it will be deducted from an active Referral Partner's future Referral Commissions/Fee's.
