Affiliate Expert Payment Program

 

Section 1 - Customer Designation

You will be paid for any customer that meets the following criteria.

1.        They sign up using your unique link and become a paying customer.

2.        They link to your account and are a paying customer.

 

Section 2 - Payment

You will receive 50% of the user’s subscription fee if the user is linked to your account, based on the variables presented in section 1 - Customer Designation, above.

Your payment is calculated every time a customer designated to you makes a payment.  Payments are paid before the 15th of every month and are based on your customer designation from the previous month. Payments are only earned if a customer makes a payment.

 

Section 3 - Discounts

In the event you have negotiated a discount for your customers, this discount will be deducted from your payment.  

For example, you negotiated a 25% discount for a group of 10 of your users.  The payment would be calculated as follows, assuming a subscription price of 20.00 annually.

  1. $20.00 annual subscription fee * 10 customers = 200.00 total annual fees
  2. Payment received = $200 - 25% = $150
  3. MG Fee = 50% of $200 = $100
  4. Expert Fee = 25% of 200 (50% - 25% negotiated discount) = $50

 

A PayPal account is required to receive payments

 

Payments are paid via PayPal. You are required to have a PayPal account and a working email address associated with your Meal Garden account to receive commission payments via PayPal. We recommend that you use the same email for your Meal Garden account that you use for your PayPal account. You can also add your Meal Garden user email to your PayPal account as a second email.

Meal Garden reserves the right to make changes to the terms of its Expert Payment and Revenue Share Program at any time with or without notice.
