CorpnetPartner Program
Terms of Use and Affiliate Agreement
Overview



The CorpnetPartner Program (CPP) is comprised of the following:

Resellers, Enterprise Clients, and Referral Partners,

Resellers: A reseller is an eligible and approved individual or business entity who provides services to his/her clients which are fulfilled by Corpnet, Incorporated (Corpnet). The primary features of this program are:

  • Non-branded packaging is provided directly to the reseller
  • The reseller may charge his/her clients whatever fee is appropriate for his/her services.
  • Corpnet serves as a “Silent Fulfillment Partner” in the area of business compliance and filing services.
  • Corpnet does NOT contact the client directly
  • Special discounts and custom pricing and packages are available.
  • NO COMMISSIONS ARE PAID FOR SALES IN THE “RESELLERS” PROGRAM
Enterprise Clients: An Enterprise Client may be any eligible and approved individual or business entity - reviewed, approved, and designated as such at the sole discretion of Corpnet. The Enterprise Program is designed for clients with high volume who require special pricing and/or packaging. NO COMMISSIONS ARE PAID FOR SALES IN THE “ENTERPRISE CLIENTS” PROGRAM.

Referral Partners: A Referral Partner may be any eligible and approved individual or business entity who “refers” a customer to Corpnet. The primary features of this program are:

  • Corpnet works directly with the client minimizing any involvement by the Referrer.
  • The Referrer publishes special links that track sales for a given Referral Partner.
  • A Referral Partner may, through selection of links, elect to “Pass On the Savings” to a customer in lieu of receiving a commission for a specific transaction.
  • The “Last Link Clicked” controls Who gets credit and whether it will be a “Commission” sale or a “Pass On the Savings” sale. A single transaction must be ONE OR THE OTHER.
  • Commissions may only be earned on FULL RETAIL purchases of our products and services. Where a purchase was made under The “Reseller” Program, the “Enterprise Clients” Program, or as a "Pass On The Savings" Referral, NO COMMISSIONS SHALL BE EARNED. In addition, NO COMMISSIONS SHALL BE EARNED where special discounts or pricing and/or packages were purchased by any buyer.
Where eligible and approved by Corpnet, One individual or business entity may participate in all three programs simultaneously.

The CorpnetPartner Program is an affiliate/referral program for Service Professionals who wish to provide business formation filings, corporate compliance, trademark, and other Business-Startup/Compliance services to their clients and/or website visitors. The term “CorpnetPartner” and “Affiliate” may be used interchangeably in this agreement.

This Affiliate Service Agreement (the "Agreement") is made by and between Corpnet, Incorporated, a California, USA corporation ("Corpnet.com" “We”, “Us”, "Our"), and you, ("You", "Your", "Affiliate") as an Affiliate utilizing the Corpnet.com Affiliate Service.

You must agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement in order to participate. Please read this Agreement carefully before registering and using the Affiliate Service. By signing up for the Corpnet.com Affiliate Service, You indicate Your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions. If You do not accept this Agreement, You may not use the Corpnet.com Affiliate Service as an Affiliate.

All terms and conditions herein are subject to change. Corpnet may modify the terms of this agreement at anytime. Any such modifications shall be posted to the website: www.Corpnet.com/Partners/.

Earning Commissions – Referral Partners Only
You will receive a Commission for sending Corpnet paid sales via Your Links. In order to place Links, You must first submit Your online application and be approved by Corpnet to become an “Referral Partner” of the “CorpnetPartner Program.”

You receive the Commission from Corpnet, Incorporated. Payments are made automatically on the twentieth (20th) day of each month when Your Account balance reaches $50 or more for the previous months' transactions. Money credited to Your Account does not accrue interest.

You understand that the Payout amount may be changed at any time. You are responsible for determining if the Payout for a Link You have placed on Your site has been changed, altered, or has been discontinued.

In the event of a VOID Commission by Corpnet, We may recover from You the corresponding Commission previously credited to Your Account. The VOID Commission will be immediately deducted from Your Account balance. In the event that Your Account balance is less than the VOID Commission, the VOID Commission will be deducted against Your future earnings. You will NEVER be asked to send money to Corpnet.com.

An approved Affiliate must be Active and in Good Standing with CorpNet to be eligible to receive Commission.

You earn Commissions in the form of REFERRAL REVENUE as described herein.

REFERRAL REVENUE: Referral Revenue is defined as UP TO 25% of Net Revenue (defined below) for every order You refer to Corpnet through an online tracking url unique to You, or, in the case of a telephone order, where the customer specifically names You as the referral source, all subject to terms, conditions, and limitations stated herein.

Commissions may only be earned after an order is Paid and Corpnet has Received Payment In Full for a given order.

Commissions may only be earned on FULL RETAIL purchases of our products and services. Where a purchase was made under The “Reseller” Program, the “Enterprise Clients” Program, or as a “Pass On The Savings” Referral, NO COMMISSIONS SHALL BE EARNED. In addition, NO COMMISSIONS SHALL BE EARNED where special discounts or pricing and/or packages were purchased by any buyer.

NET REVENUE: Net Revenue represents the Amount Subject to Commission. For purposes of calculating the Amount Subject to Commission, Net Revenue is defined as:

  • Federal, State, County, City, and Governmental fees
  • Discounts, Coupon Codes, Returns, Chargebacks, and Credits
  • Fees payable to Third Parties
