The default commission rate is 10% of the total sales price, less any discounts, and not including returned or refunded sales, shipping and handling, or taxes and fees (“Price”) unless the account and / or sale has been identified as a wholesale account and / or sale in which case the commission rate shall be equal to 5% less shipping and handling, and fees, and shall not include returned or refunded sales.
5.2. Affiliates are paid about every 30 days by Paypal, provided that Company may, in its discretion, withhold payments until such time as its clients have paid Company for sales under the Program. In addition to any other remedies that may be available to Company, in the event of any breaches by you of this Agreement, you shall forfeit your rights to any amounts owed by Company to you. All payments are made in U.S. dollars only.

6. Promotion Restrictions
6.1. You are free to promote your own websites, but any promotion mentioning American Mission shall in the event be deemed to be a joint effort. To avoid confusion, the following promotional restrictions are to be followed by all participating affiliates.
• Certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by American Mission. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once.
• You may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote American Mission so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings.
• You may post to newsgroups to promote American Mission so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from American Mission and its clients. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the American Mission Affiliate Program.
• Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account may be forfeited because of unacceptable advertising.
6.2. Affiliates are prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form with the intent of misrepresenting or falsifying leads.
6.3. Affiliates must stay compliant with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines on testimonials and endorsements. For example, all endorsements, reviews, testimonials on American Mission products and services, as well as relationships between other types of content websites (forums, blogs, microblogs and other Social Media channels) and American Mission must be clearly disclosed in a separate policy on the affiliate sites. Affiliates must also use appropriate disclaimers, where required. The FTC has noted that “when there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product” it is imperative that such connection is “fully disclosed”. We share the concept and concern of the FTC’s approach, and will not tolerate any affiliates that fail to adhere to the FTC’s guidance. We reserve the right to terminate our relationship with any non-compliant affiliates.
6.4. American Mission affiliates are rewarded for networking and bringing in new customers through their own marketing effort. American Mission prohibits affiliates from utilizing their affiliate link to refer their own customer account(s) to receive commission. This also includes accounts that are not under their name but are paid for using a payment medium that they own. This includes forms of online payment (Credit/Debit cards) but also checks and money orders.
