SMS-IT Affiliate Agreement
This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the SMS-IT Affiliate Program. In this agreement, the term "Affiliate" refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, SMS-IT refers to the product owner and publisher.
The SMS-IT Affiliate Program is administered in part through several 3rd party affiliate companies and in part through https://smsit.ai/ or any of its related sub-domains.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modifications may include, but are not limited to changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Affiliate Program rules. If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.
To start the enrollment process, you must submit a completed online application. All applications must be reviewed and processed before an affiliate is approved into the SMS-IT Affiliate program. Applicants will be informed of their approval status as soon as possible once their information is reviewed. Processing time is on average 1-2 business days but may take longer.
Upon acceptance to the SMS-IT Affiliate Program, you will be required to work with the SMS-IT team to adhere to a customized, mutually agreed upon posting schedule.
You will be issued a special URL that contains a tracking link once you are accepted into the SMS-IT Affiliate Program. This URL will be unique to you and will allow you to be paid for affiliate referrals.
Affiliates will receive a 20% commission per sale for anyone who places order through affiliate’s URL or uses their unique discount code. Commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher. SMS-IT commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, but they will return thereafter to the regular rate of 20% affiliate commission per sale.
Affiliate commissions will be the same day each conversion is made.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure order system. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links or use your Affiliate code. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate.
Affiliates cannot use their own code or affiliate link to make a purchase. Any offenses to said rule will result in immediate suspension and/or termination. Affiliates will receive a free SMS-IT Skincare Laser and serum bundle for promotional purposes; see section 10 for more details.
Payment will be issued through PayPal after each conversion. Commission will equal 20% of each sale.
SMS-IT will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer via affiliate links or affiliate codes. Affiliates are not authorized to collect payments or sell any SMS-IT products from other websites as a "reseller" and no "resale" rights are granted in ANY way. Affiliates are not authorized to sell any of these products on eBay, or other auction sites. Affiliates are not authorized to give away copies of any of these products. SMS-IT will also be solely responsible for all customer service inquires.
Customers who purchase products and services through the SMS-IT Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of SMS-IT. Accordingly, all rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. SMS-IT policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.

Be conscious of forum rules! If a forum owner or moderator complains that an affiliate has spammed, the affiliate account may be permanently terminated after investigation.
Content posted on free blog websites for the sole purpose of keyword spamming, or comments posted to legitimate blogs that violate the comment policy of the blog owner. Solicitations posted to chat rooms, or to groups or individuals via Internet Relay Chat or "Instant Messaging" system;

SMS-IT, may undertake, at its sole discretion and with or without prior notice, the following enforcement actions:
Account Termination: Upon the receipt of a credible complaint, the SMS-IT Affiliate Program manager may investigate the complaint, and if necessary, will then terminate the affiliate account of the individual implicated in the abuse.

At SMS-IT discretion, termination may not only result in being banned from the affiliate program, but also being banned from ANY other internal affiliate programs. If you wish to report a violation of our Anti-Spam Policy, please forward all relevant evidence to our customer service department at email@example.com.
