Affiliation Program Policies - Car Audio | Stereo Installation Online Store Australia | Kayhan Audio

Affiliation Program Policies

These Policies are for the Kayhan Audio Affiliation Program. They’re included in the agreement you joined. If you’re unsure about any words, you can check their meanings in the main agreement. Even if the agreement ends, some rules about your responsibilities will still apply. Breaking any of these rules is serious and could mean you’ve broken the agreement.

Affiliation Program Commission Fee Structure:

1. Valid Purchase and Valid Revenue.

We’ll pay you a Standard Commission Fee according to our Standard Commission Fee Structure for “Valid Purchases.” A Valid Purchase occurs when:

  1. A customer clicks on a Special Link on your website directing them to a Kayhan Audio website.
  2. During a single session, which begins when a customer clicks the Special Link and ends when one of the following occurs:
    The customer places an order for a product (excluding digital products).
    The customer makes a purchase using our 1-Click feature or adds a product to their shopping cart and completes the order within 20 days of clicking the Special Link.
  3. The product is shipped to the customer and delivered.
    For each Valid Purchase, the “Valid Revenue” is the amount we receive from that purchase, minus any applicable shipping charges, gift-wrapping fees, handling fees, taxes (such as sales tax and VAT), service charges, credits, rebates, credit card processing fees, and bad debt.

2. Ineligible Purchase

Valid Purchases can become Ineligible if they’re associated with a violation of the Affiliation Program Standard Commission Fee structure or any Policies, including the Agreement. Additionally, specific purchases that would otherwise be considered valid are not eligible for the Affiliation Program:

  1. Products bought after your agreement ends,
  2. Orders for products that are canceled, returned, or refunded,
  3. Products bought by a customer who finds the Kayhan Audio Site through search terms or other identifiers with “Kayhan Audio” or similar words (e.g., “Kayhhan”, “kyhan”, and “kayhaaan” etc.),
  4. Products bought through links on search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Bing,
  5. Products bought through links that indirectly lead to the Kayhan Audio Site,
  6. Products bought by customers who don’t follow the Kayhan Audio Site’s rules,
  7. Purchases that aren’t tracked or reported correctly because the links from your site to Kayhan Audio Site aren’t right,
  8. Products bought through a Special Link in a Mobile Application that wasn’t approved or wasn’t served by Kayhan Audio API.

3. Earnings Disclosure and Remittance

We’ll make every effort to accurately track your sales and earnings each month. You’ll receive your commission approximately 30 days after the end of each month. By default, we’ll pay you in the currency used by Kayhan Audio, unless you choose otherwise. If you opt for a different currency, we’ll convert it according to our standards.
Option 1: Direct Deposit. Once you provide us with your bank details, we’ll deposit your earnings directly into your account. If you select this option, we may wait until your earnings reach a minimum amount before processing the payment.
If your account remains inactive for a year, we may notify you and withhold your earnings. Any unpaid earnings might be subject to applicable laws.
Once we’ve paid you, that’s the end of it. If we happen to overpay you, we reserve the right to deduct the excess from future earnings.

b. Overall Guidelines for All Unique Links:-

You have the option to create your unique links or use ones provided by us. If we specify that certain links cannot be used on your website, you must cease their usage. It’s your responsibility to manage how these links appear and where they are directed on your site. Additionally, ensure that special links are formatted correctly for proper referral tracking. Avoid prompting users to bookmark these special links; they should only be accessible through your site and must include your unique ID.
You’re free to add or remove products and links from your site as needed. Ensure that links direct to specific products, and if linking to product lists, ensure relevant content accompanies them.
Remove any links or references to promotions on our site once they end. Refrain from making false claims regarding products or our site. Display prices and availability only if sourced directly from us or via our API, adhering to API usage guidelines.

Brand Usage Policies

These guidelines are important for using the logos provided through the Kayhan Audio Affiliation Program. It’s crucial to follow them carefully to avoid losing permission to use the Kayhan Audio logo. You’re only allowed to use the logo on your website to show that products are available on Kayhan Audio, and you must include a special link to the Kayhan Audio site. When using the logo, you must also adhere to other rules in the program documents, such as not suggesting sponsorship or endorsement by Kayhan Audio, or saying anything negative about the company or its products. The logos cannot be used in printed materials, emails, or offline contexts, and they must be shown clearly without alteration. Remember, the logos belong to Kayhan Audio, and any benefits from their usage go to the company. Using logos from third-party sellers requires written permission, and you cannot use trademarks too similar to Kayhan Audio’s or similar names for websites, usernames, or apps. Kayhan Audio reserves the right to change these guidelines and logos at any time and may take action against those who do not comply with the rules.

Termination

Kayhan Audio can stop or end your participation in the Kayhan Audio Affiliation Program, and you can do the same if you wish, just by giving us notice as outlined in our agreement. Even if your participation ends, you’ll still have certain rights from our Brand Usage Policy, such as using the Kayhan Audio Logo.
