Qualifying sales must meet the following criteria to be eligible for commission credit:
· Each new sale must be by a new and unique visitor to AmeriNOC.
· All web hosting sales must remain active for 30 days before credit will be given. VPS and Dedicated Server sales must remain active for 90 days before credit is given.
· Each new sale must remain in good standing. Commissions will not be credited for sales that have been cancelled, terminated, charged back, refunded, or have outstanding balances within the 30 - 90 day activation period.
All sales must originate from the affiliates unique tracking URL. The tracking URL we provide must not be altered.
