If you are referring clients to BullTips from a free hosting service that you run, you are not eligible for commissions unless given express permission by BullTips. You must contact our affiliate department for review and a special commission rate.
Commissions deemed due and owed to you under the program will be paid to you directly by BullTips.com via PayPal after any holding period and in accordance with a regular payout cycle established by BullTips.com. No commission will be paid for signups by you, your household, or anyone within your organization. BullTips reserves the right to only pay for referrals that are active. Active is defined by clients with a website and domain name pointed to a BullTips server with user uploaded content. Commissions can be earned per each new client referred through the unique affiliate link. An existing customer, defined by any client who has had an existing account with us at anytime in the past, would not be eligible for a commission with the program.

Sales that are found not to be valid according to our TOS requirements at the time of the additional sale and earnings will be marked as invalid and not payable.
