If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply at any time. However, if we accept your application and we later determine that your site is unsuitable, we may terminate this Agreement without prior notice.

You will ensure that the information in your Program application and otherwise associated with your account, including your email address and other contact information and identification of site(s) and/or social media account(s) is at all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We may send notifications (if any), approvals (if any), and other communications relating to the Program and this Agreement to the email address associated with your Affiliate account. You will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals, and other communications sent to the email address, even if the email address associated with your account is no longer current.

  1. Affiliate Dashboard & Affiliate Link

After you have been notified that you have been accepted into the Program, you will be granted access to your Affiliate Dashboard which gives you a summary of your affiliated marketing performance, including but not limited to clicks, conversions, earned commissions, and paid commissions. You will also have access to an Affiliate Link generator tool on your Affiliate Dashboard.

You may earn your commissions as described in Section 7 and only with respect to activity on KS Site occurring directly via your own Affiliate Link(s). We will have no obligation to pay you your commissions if you fail to properly format the links on your site(s) and/or social media account(s) to our KS Site as Affiliate Links.

  1. Program Requirements

By participating in our Program, you agree that you will comply with our Affiliate Program Participation Requirements, policies, guidelines, specifications, user manuals, supporting materials, and other terms and conditions that we make available to you and are relevant to this Agreement.

You will provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement. In addition to any other rights or remedies available to us, we may terminate this Agreement and/or withhold (and you agree that you are not eligible for) any commissions payable to you under this Agreement if we determine that you or other persons that we determine to be Affiliated or acting in concert with you (whether in respect to any existing or previously terminated Affiliate account) have not complied with any requirement or restriction described in our Affiliate Program Participation Requirements or have otherwise violated this Agreement.

  1. Order Processing

Klas & Sylph will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer via Affiliate Links. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements on our Site, as they may be updated from time to time. We will track Qualifying Purchases (defined in Section 7) for reporting and commissions accrual purposes and will make available to you reports summarizing those Qualifying Purchases on your Affiliate Dashboard.

  1. Commissions

We will pay you 15% commissions on Qualifying Purchases as defined at the end of this section, unless agreed otherwise. Commissions may change for some or all products at our discretion. Commissions may increase for a limited time on special promotions of all or some products, after which they will return to the regular 15% commission rate. Commissions are calculated from net price exclusive of VAT, regular discount, coupon discount, and discount from redeeming reward points. A shipping fee (if any) and additional discount that may be offered to customers for choosing certain payment option (e.g. direct bank transfer) will not have impact on Affiliate commissions.


Example #1:

A customer visited https://klas-sylph.co.th site through your Affiliate Link and completed her purchase of a product that has a regular price inclusive of VAT of THB 2,450 and a sale price inclusive of VAT of THB 1,950. The customer also redeemed a THB 200 discount coupon during her purchase and made her payment via direct bank transfer, the payment option which gave her additional discount of 2%. In this case, your Affiliate commission would be calculated as the following:

Commission

= (sale price before VAT – THB 200 coupon discount) x 15%

= [(1,950 – 200)/1.07] x 15%

= 1,635.51 x 15%

= 245.33

Explanatory Note:

The 2% discount given to the customer for making payment via direct bank transfer has no impact on the commission calculation.


Example #2:

A customer visited https://klas-sylph.co.th site through your Affiliate Link and completed her purchase of a product that has a regular price inclusive of 7% VAT of THB 2,000 and a sale price inclusive of VAT of THB 1,200. Because the cart value is below THB 1,300, a shipping cost of THB 100 applies. Assuming that the customer didn’t redeem any discount coupon or loyalty points, your commission would be calculated as the following:

Commission

= sale price before VAT x 15%

= 1,200/1.07 x 15%

= 168.22

Explanatory Note: 

The shipping fee of THB 100 has no impact on the commission calculation.


Subject to the exclusions set forth below, a “Qualifying Purchase” occurs when all of the following criteria are satisfied:

  • A customer clicks through your Affiliate Link on your site or social media account to KS Site and completed his/her purchase on KS Site within 30 days.
  • The customer does not cancel or request for a refund within 7 days after his/her purchase.
  • Your Affiliate Link was the last Affiliate Link that the customer clicked through before completing his/her purchase (i.e. the customer might have visited the KS Site a few times through several Affiliate Links generated by different Affiliates before completing the purchase. In such a case, the commission will be awarded to the Affiliate whose link was the last Affiliate Link that the customer clicked through before completing the purchase.)

If a customer clicks through the same Affiliate Link to the KS Site, the Affiliated session (“Session”) will be extended by 30 days, or until the customer clicks through a different Affiliate Link which does not belong to you to the KS Site. Affiliate Links that are tied to successful customer’s purchases will automatically expire after those purchases are successfully completed.

Qualifying Purchases exclude, and we will not pay commissions on any of, the following:

  • Any Product that is purchased from the KS Site after the expiration of the applicable Session even if your Affiliate Link to the KS Site was the last Affiliate Link that the customer clicked through before completing his/her purchase;
  • Any Product purchased that is not correctly tracked or reported due to your Affiliate Link not being correctly formatted;
  • Any Product purchased through an Affiliate Link that violates the terms of this Agreement;
  • Any Product purchased after termination of this Agreement;
  • Any purchase order that is cancelled or returned (except the cancellation or return of goods that is due to our fault, e.g. defective or wrong Product); and
  • Any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to the KS Site through any of the following:
    • A Prohibited Paid Search Placement;
    • A Redirecting Link;
    • An online directory;
    • An online marketplace;
    • A web board/online forum; or
    • A spammy website.
  1. Commissions Payment

We will pay you commissions on a monthly basis for Qualifying Purchases shipped in a given month. We will pay you approximately on Day 10 in the following month via direct bank transfer to your bank account. If Day 10 happens to be a non-business day (e.g. Saturday, Sunday, or Public Holiday), we will pay you on the upcoming business day instead. If you have not provided us with your bank account number that you wish us to transfer your commissions to, we will withhold any unpaid accrued commissions until you have done so.

We will directly deposit the commissions that you’ve earned into the bank account that you designate, but may accrue and withhold commissions until the total amount due to you is at least THB 800.-, otherwise a commissions withdrawal fee of THB 150.- may apply.

If a customer cancels or returns his/her order after a commission has been paid to you, this “unearned” commission amount will be deducted from your Affiliate account or billed to you on the next payment date.

If you have not earned any commission or your accumulated commission for the last 365 days prior to any given month is less than THB 800, then on the first day of that calendar month we may charge you an account maintenance fee which will be deducted from your unpaid accrued commissions and/or terminate your Affiliate account. The account maintenance fee will be the lesser of THB 800 or the amount of accrued commissions withheld in your Affiliate account.

We may deduct or withhold any taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable to you under this Agreement. Payments made to you, as reduced by such deductions or withholdings, will constitute full payment and settlement to you of amounts payable under this Agreement. From time to time, we may request tax information from you. If we request tax information from you and you do not provide it to us, we may (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold your commissions until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain the tax information.

The termination of this Agreement will not relieve either party of any liability for any breach of, or reliability accruing under, this Agreement prior to termination. 

  1. Modification

We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement at any time and in our sole discretion by posting a change notice or revised Agreement on the KS Site or by sending notice of such modification to you by email to the email address that is associated with your Affiliate account (any such change by email will be effective on the date specified in such email and will in no event be less than two weeks after the date the email is sent).
