Thank you for considering the PAWS, LLC affiliate program. Our affiliates are very important to us. This agreement is designed to protect you, PAWS, LLC and our customers. Please read thoroughly. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the PAWS, LLC affiliate program. In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, “PAWS, LLC” refers to PAWS, LLC., a Delaware Corporation and creator of the Halo Collar, with whom you are entering this agreement. By applying to the PAWS, LLC affiliate program you are confirming that you have read the agreement and agree to the terms and conditions.
The PAWS, LLC affiliate program applies to sale of Halo Collars purchased by customers through the official website www.halocollar.com.

Affiliate Program Participation
PAWS, LLC does not auto-approve Affiliate applications. To begin the enrollment process, you will complete and submit the online form located at www.halocollar.com/brandpartners.

You will be informed of approval of your application via email. PAWS LLC does not guarantee that all applications will be approved nor a timeframe for such approval.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order process on www.halocollar.com and remit full payment for the product. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Cookies persist for 30 days after a customer first clicks on a qualified Affiliate link.
The Affiliate earns US$50.00 for each Halo Collar sold.
Additional commission plans may be added to the program as new products are added.
PAWS, LLC uses WooCommerce to generate Affiliate links, track Affiliate sales, and calculate commissions. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard. PAWS LLC shall utilize data solely from WooCommerce tracking to determine Commission amounts.
Affiliate commission payments are made once a month, on the last day of each month for all products sold the previous month. For example, commissions for sales made in the month of March will be paid on April 30. Payments will be paid out via PayPal. Commissions will not be paid out until at least $250 in Commissions have been earned.
In the event a customer requests a refund for a transaction for which the Affiliate has earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refund amount will be deducted from the Affiliate’s balance. If the Commission has been previously paid to Affiliate, this deduction may be taken against future Commissions earned.
