Hey Andrew F
Thanks for your quick response. I write down of what I have understood from your message.
1.“Sub-Referrals” are defined as tier-2 referrals. Tier-3 referrals do not earn a credit. ( How much commission will I get when my referred person makes a sale? And will I get a commission on his every sale or will it be a one-time commission?
(You mean I can get both one-time commission from my referred person or a commission whenever he makes a sale)?
2.One-time Payments will be applied to customer’s account the first time a referred (or sub-referred) customer makes payment for any full hosting plan (including dedicated servers). Referred accounts for annual hosting plans qualify for up to a one time $97 commission, and new month-to-month hosting plans qualify for up to a one time $30 commission.
(Does it mean that when my referred person pay for annual hosting I will get a one time $97 commission and if I refer new month-to-month hosting plans I will get a one time $30 commission?)
3.Recurring Payments will be applied to customer’s account every time a payment is made by both referrals and sub-referrals. ( what does it mean?)
4.Rewards accrued from DreamHost customers that have completed their free trial and/or money-back guarantee periods are paid out via PayPal at the start of every month, and are subject to a 5% fee. (Does it mean that my referred accounts must complete their free trial and money back guarantee, then Dreamhost will pay me commission?) BTW how many days are in the free trial and money back guarantee? And how much commission will I get?
Promotional code discounts are non-recurring and are only applied toward an account’s first payment. (Does this mean that this a one-time discount and I won’t get it in second month for the same account?)
New accounts must use a different payment method from the referrer to qualify for rewards credit for the referrer. (It means neither I own referred accounts nor I pay from them for hosting) Am I right?
A Platinum Affiliates program is available to active affiliates generating greater than 25 sales per month, offering a number of exclusive features including earlier cashout of Rewards, payments by check, and waiving of the 5% fee on cashout.
(If I get a platinum affiliate program, Dreamhost won’t deduct 5% fee on cashout?)
Does Dreamhost offer any 60 day cookie period like others?
(Does it mean in 45 days if my referred person buy your services, I will get my commission?)
