b. Sales to Which Affiliate Commission Applies. This Affiliate Commission applies to any sales resulting from individuals clicking your unique affiliate link as a result of your own e-mail and/or social media marketing promotions, or through other means of communication by you, provided that the purchase is made through your unique affiliate link and you comply with any marketing or promotional requirements as determined by me. You may not earn a Commission on your own purchase of the Program. Commissions do not apply to services, mini-courses, or other downloads.
c. Payment. Affiliate Commission shall be paid to Affiliate once per quarter. All Affiliate Commissions shall be made via PayPal as a payment for a good/service.
