Signups and payments made by members to the WhiteLabelFlatshare.co.uk network are tracked using our own software. When a member upgrades we will log this against the relevant partners account. Commissions will be paid to the partner of the site on which a member upgrades.
We only track information related to payments on the accounts and number of signups. We don't track visitors to your site(s), if you require this information then you need to sign up for a Google analytics account and enter your analytics account number against your relevant site(s).
If you need to review the number of your members that have upgraded their account and the commission due you can do so from the reports section of your admin system.
We will be adding new reports to give you as much detailed information on the performance of your sites as possible. Don't forget we only reports on upgrade information and general website stats need to be gathered by your Google analytics account.
2.3. Payment of commission
Each time a member upgrade to premium membership via your white label flatshare site you will receive a commission of 30%. We reserve the right to offer a higher percentage commission where we deem appropriate.
Payments are only made once the minimum threshold has been reached (see section 2.3.2). If your commission is below this level then it will be rolled over to the next month until this figure is met.
Payments are made once a month. The first payment will be made 3 months after you reach the payment threshold and monthly thereafter.
Payments can be made via PayPal or bank transfer, so please ensure you select your preferred method of payment in your account and enter the correct payment details. Failure to do so will result in the delay of payment.
2.3.1. Probationary period
A three month probationary period is put in place to make sure no partner incurs excessive chargebacks on their account, putting their account in a negative balance.
2.3.2. Payment Threshold
The payment threshold for all partners is £100, payments won't be made until the account has reached this amount. If your total commission (less taxes, chargebacks and refunds) is less than £100 then it will roll over to the next month. Once the commission exceeds the threshold then it will be flagged for payment.
