You may only display the ReligiousMall.Com Promos on your Website, and if you have multiple web sites other than the Website, you must register each such web site to your account in order to display the ReligiousMall.Com Promos. ReligiousMall.Com affiliate system is designed so that many web sites can be linked to you through a sole account. You may not create multiple accounts.

5. Payments

5.1 Referral Fees and Commissions. On a monthly basis, within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month, ReligiousMall.Com shall pay you a "Commission" for each Qualified Client who purchased any type of product or service owned by the ReligiousMall.Com site set forth below directly from a link within the ReligiousMall.Com Promos on your Website using the special promotion identifier and thereafter completed the transaction by providing a valid credit card and paying in such month. ReligiousMall.Com in order to avoid using the Commission as a discount for the affiliate (i) will not count towards Commission orders that you placed and that contain your address in their billing or shipping records and (ii) will not issue payment for accounts with balances less than $100. The balances are transferred in the next period and you will receive the whole amount once the balance is more than or equal to $100. "Qualified Client" means any person or entity who purchases ReligiousMall.Com Products or Services as a direct result of your promotion of the ReligiousMall.Com Service by linking from one of the ReligiousMall.Com Promos on your Website using your special promotional identifier and who paid the then-standard or discounted fees required for purchasing, shipping and taxes to the ReligiousMall.Com.

ReligiousMall.Com will offer improved commissions to its best affiliates each month. All commissions are defined as the percentage of the total paid price of the purchased items. The minimum percentage you may receive once accepted into the affiliate program is the highest available in our market to our knowledge and is 5% (five percent). ReligiousMall.Com may choose to offer you a higher Fee or Commission for a particular period of time or for particular types of ReligiousMall.Com Products or Services. ReligiousMall.Com will either provide you notice of such higher Commission to the e-mail address in your Application or will post notice of such higher Fee or Commission on the Reporting Page. You acknowledge that ReligiousMall.Com may offer a Fee or Commission to other participants in the Program that is higher than the Fee or Commission you receive. Nothing in the foregoing shall limit ReligiousMall.Com's ability to lower the minimum Commission contained herein in accordance with Article 7.

5.4 Liability for payment. ReligiousMall.Com's sole obligation in regards to remitting payment to you for the payments described in Sections 5.1 through 5.3 shall be to make such payment to the address or account information submitted to ReligiousMall.Com in the Application or in the event your address changes, to the address thereafter submitted at the Reporting Page. In some cases ReligiousMall.Com may use the email you provided in your application to request a bank account to which the payment transfer may be made. You are solely responsible for assuring your address and email address of record is current, correct and secure. ReligiousMall.Com will be liable to settle the amount as long the affiliate account is open and uncompromised. An affiliate account is open and uncompromised if it exists in ReligiousMall.Com electronic records and has not been closed. In the event a payment sent to such address is returned to ReligiousMall.Com for any reason other than an error in such address on the part of ReligiousMall.Com, you hereby waive any rights to receive such payment. ReligiousMall.Com shall not be liable for any payment to you if ReligiousMall.Com deems that you have engaged in any fraudulent or criminal activity in connection with the Program.

6. Reporting. Through the Reporting Page ReligiousMall.Com shall provide you with real time reports setting forth the number of completed orders your Website generated of the ReligiousMall.Com Promos, impressions and clickthroughs to an ReligiousMall.Com web site that were generated from ReligiousMall.Com Promos on your Website, and Qualified Orders obtained by ReligiousMall.Com through your Website. These data are reported for statistical and validation purposes and to aid you in improving your performance as an affiliate. The actual amount owed may be different due to computer errors and is defined as the total money received by ReligiousMall.Com purchases made by your Qualified Orders multipied your commission percentage at the time the order was placed in the ReligiousMall.Com site. In the event that some items have special promotional rates at the time the order is received these may not appear correctly in the reporting pages. ReligiousMall.Com keeps the right to offer special prices and promotions to its site visitors, and will make the necessary adjustments to the actuals commissions owed. The actual commission owed will always be the amount received by ReligiousMall.Com times the commission percentage assigned to you at the time of the order. The values recorded by the ReligiousMall.Com software is the evidence for the amount owed and you may request ReligiousMall.Com to e-mail you your reports for your personal records. It is your responsibility to report any diviance from the values reported in a timely manner. The form, content, timing and availability of the foregoing reports may vary from time to time in ReligiousMall.Com's sole discretion.
