AFFILIATE COMMISSIONS SCHEDULE
This schedule describes the advertising fee rates you may earn as a participant in the INGENIUM affiliation. It also describes any limitations that may apply to earning such advertising fees. During each calendar month, you may earn advertising fees for qualifying purchases. Advertising fees are calculated as a percentage of qualifying revenues described in the "standard commissions structure" section and are subject to the limitations described in the “limitations on advertising fee rates” section below. We also may offer advertising fees in the form of bounties or other special offers as described in the “special offers and promotions” section below. Qualifying revenues mean amounts we receive from customers’ qualifying purchases, excluding shipping, handling, and gift-wrapping fees, taxes, and service charges, and less any rebates, credit card processing fees, returns, and bad debt.
2. STANDARD COMMISSIONS STRUCTURE
A standard commission of 10% is paid on all of your qualifying revenues. In addition to standard commission you may also earn multi level commission. Multi level commissions are earned when a partner registers under you and makes qualifying revenues. For example, if a partner registers directly under you (level 1), you earn an additional 3% of any qualifying revenues generated by this respective partner. If a partner registers two levels under you (level 2), you earn an additional 2% of any qualifying revenues generated by this respective partner. If a partner registers three levels under you (level 3), you earn an additional 1% of any qualifying revenues generated by this respective partner. All multi level commissions are calculated as a percentage of qualifying revenues. Below is a summary of levels and multi level commissions:
Standard: 10% commission
Multi level 1: 3% commission
Multi level 2: 2% commission
Multi level 3: 1% commission

j) any qualifying purchase wherein you have offered any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including any money, rebate, discount, points, donation to charity or other organization, or other benefit) for using special links other than those explicitly provided by INGENIUM JEWELLERY (e.g., by implementing any “rewards” or loyalty program that incentivices persons or entities to visit the partner site via your special links).
