  1. Payments and Reporting

    1. Taxes: Company will collect and pay, or require its affiliate Vendors to pay, all federal, state, and local sales taxes levied upon the distribution of products sold to customers. Partners are not responsible for sales tax payments.

Commission Payment: In consideration of all products and services sold through Company’ eStores, and all Affiliate eStores, Company shall cause the payment of a commission via Stripe ACH direct deposit to Partner's specified bank account, on all payments collected from the sale of your eStore’ products, and your Affiliate eStore’ products, less any refunds or chargebacks. The commission shall be paid on Wednesday of each week for the preceding week's sales activity, and not more than 30 days after the completion of the sale of product(s) to customers. Partners receive 70% of the Net Profits (NP) of all the products sold through your eStore and 5% of all the products sold through Affiliate eStores. NP is calculated by Gross Sales (GS) and subtracting the Total Cost of Goods Sold (TCOGS). As an example, to clarify the preceding terms, if a product has a Sales Price (SP) of $100 on your eStore with sales tax of $7 and S&H Fees of $6, while the customer would have paid $113, the Gross Sales would only be $100. To get the Total Cost of Goods Sold (TCOGS), assuming the product cost was $50, O&M was $8, FF was $5, and the additional S&H was $9 and there was no administration fee, the TCOGS would equal $72. Concluding this hypothetical, the NP equation would be: Gross Sales ($100) minus TCOGS ($72) yielding a NP of $28. To receive Commissions, you will be required to submit a completed w9 Form so that we can issue your 1099 Form after the end of the calendar year, for the preceding year’s Commissions.

  1. Returns, Refunds and Chargebacks: Commissions are paid less any monies due Company for refunds or chargebacks. If a refund or chargeback amount exceeds the amount of commission due, commissions will be held and not paid until the commission amount exceeds the amount due Company for any refund or chargeback. Any Customer credits applied against your commissions will be detailed on your sales report that you may access online Partner Portal.

  1. Payment Reports: Partner shall have access to payment related reports in the Partner Portal. The Partner Portal provides detailed information outlining all sales and related commissions due for all Products sold on the eStore.

  1. Form of Payments & Receipt of Sales Proceeds: Partner is responsible for all expenses in connection with this Agreement. To enjoy Services hereunder, Partner must provide valid information from a credit or debit card acceptable to Company for purposes of paying Company the one-time set-up fee and monthly management fee and must also provide valid bank account information to receive commissions. Conditions for acceptance may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice. Partner agrees to only use a name it is authorized to use in connection with a Service and will update all information provided to Company as necessary to always ensure that such information remains accurate, complete, and valid. Partner authorizes Company to charge Partner's Credit or Debit Card for any sums payable by Partner to Company. All payments due Partner will be remitted to Partner’s Bank Account through a banking network or by other means specified by Company.

  1. Excessive Returns: If we determine Partner's actions or performance may result in excessive returns, refunds, chargebacks, or claims, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to Company or third parties, then we may in our sole discretion withhold any payments to Partner for as long as we determine any related risks to Company, or third-parties, persist. For any amounts Company determines eStore or Partner owes us, Company may (a) charge eStore' Owner's Credit or Debit Card or any other payment instrument provided to us; (b) offset any amounts that are payable by eStore or Partner to Company (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments Company may make to Partner or amounts Company may owe Partner; (c) invoice Partner for amounts due Company, in which case Partner will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt; (d) reverse any credits to Partner's Bank Account; or (e) collect payment or reimbursement from eStore or Partner by any other lawful means. If we determine that Partner's account—or any other account Partner has operated—has been used to engage in deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or if Company determines that eStore or Partner has repeatedly

violated our policies, then we may in our sole discretion permanently withhold any payments to Partner. Except as provided otherwise, all amounts contemplated in this Agreement will be expressed and displayed in USD.

  1. Additional Payment Information

  1. All payments are subject to fraud and risk analysis considerations and anti-money laundering procedures and may be withheld by Noblues during the period of investigation. Nobleus may also withhold payment if Partner fails to provide Nobleus with information that is required to make payment.
