The Affiliate hereby agrees that the following terms and conditions shall apply to the Affiliate’s participation in the Affiliate Program (“Affiliates T&C”).
By having (i) filled the cryptocurrency pay-out address (limited to “USDT TRC-20” only), and (ii) signing up and agreeing to the Affiliates T&C online, the Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that: (a) he/she fully understands the Affiliates T&C; and (b) he/she agrees to be bound by all of the Affiliates T&C with immediate effect.
The Affiliates T&C shall be a binding agreement between the Affiliate and CoolBitX, and CoolBitX reserves the right to update the Affiliates T&C at any time. The Affiliates T&C may be amended, changed, or updated by CoolBitX at any time and CoolBitX will notify the Affiliate of the subsequent versions of the Affiliates T&C via online or email notification(s).
Please note that after the effective date of any such amendments, changes, or updates, if the Affiliate shall be deemed to have accepted any such subsequent amendments, changes, or updates, by continuing to participate in the Affiliate Program.
Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Affiliates T&C shall have the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions (https://www.coolwallet.io/termsandconditions/).
1. Rewards to the affiliates
1.1 – The Affiliate shall be allowed to place the Links on his/her website, which will enable redirection towards the Site.
1.2 – If a user clicks on the Link, and then concludes the purchase/payment procedures of the CoolWallet products (“Products”) on the Site (the “Transaction”), the Affiliate shall be entitled to receive commission payments (the “Reward”) for such Transaction. Payment of Rewards received by Affiliate shall be made by CoolBitX only for completed and valid Transactions. If a user cancels his/her order or requests a refund for any reason after CoolBitX paid the Rewards to the Affiliate, the amounts paid to the Affiliate on the basis of such cancelled Transaction(s) will be deducted from the next Reward owed to the Affiliate. For clarification, Products are limited to the CoolWallet card series, including CoolWallet S, CoolWallet Pro, and other co-branded cards, but not include (i) any merchandise such as charge set and/or private seed storage/recovery device, and/or (ii) any products consigned for sales on the Site. For the avoidance of doubt, CoolBitX reserve the right of final decision on the eligibility of each Transaction.
1.3 – The Rewards shall be an agreed-upon percentage of the Product’s final sales price after applied discounts, shipping costs excluded; provided that CoolBitX reserves the right, at its sole discretion and without advance written consent from the Affiliate, to modify the foregoing percentage at any time and the modification to the percentage shall be effective from the fifth day after such modification is communicated online or via email.

The Rewards shall be paid in cryptocurrency designated by CoolBitX within a maximum of 60-day period from the date the Affiliate fulfilled the conditions as set forth in Clause 1.6. The amount owed to the Affiliate will be calculated on the basis of the conversion rate (average of the opening and closing price) between fiat currency and cryptocurrencies as set out by CoinMarketCap (https://coinmarketcap.com/) from the previous day of the payout. Conditions to payout of Rewards shall include without limitation actual receipt of funds from the purchase of the Transaction.

The Affiliate is required to fill out, sign, and return the payout notification, along with the required documentation (if any), to the designated email address in order to claim its Rewards. For the avoidance of doubt, CoolBitX will only pay out the Rewards by USDT (TRC-20); provided that CoolBitX reserves the right to change the paying currency, at its own discretion and at any time, by updating this Affiliates T&C and in such event, the Affiliate shall promptly update the pay-out address to be entitled to receive any Rewards. For tax purposes, entity-Affiliate is required to provide an invoice to CoolBitX when claiming its Rewards.
1.7 – CoolBitX will send out a follow-up confirmation email after receiving the signed notification and the required documentation. Then the sixty-day (60) pay-out process will start from the date of the confirmation email sent. The Affiliate acknowledges that it shall be solely responsible for any and all taxes relating to the Rewards payment. Furthermore, the Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that CoolBitX reserves the right to withhold its Reward pay-out and reserves the right to terminate this contractual relationship in the event that the Affiliate does not cooperate with the above Clauses 1.6 and 1.7 pay-out protocol.
