Expert Referral Program Terms
These Expert Referral Program Terms were last updated on 3 November 2022.
A Referrer is a participant of the ChampChat Referral Program. A Referrer is eligible for Referral Rewards after completion of Qualified Referrals.
The Referral Link is a special link that a Referrer can share with others. Others can use this link and then create an Expert Profile on ChampChat. They are a Referred Expert of the Referrer. A Referral Link has a cookie life of 7 days. This means if they create an expert profile within 7 days from the same browser, even without using your link, they will count as a Referred Expert of the Referrer. If they click any other Referrer's Referral Link after theirs, it will override the original Referrer's cookie.
Referred Expert is an individual who creates a ChampChat expert profile using your referral link. The Referred Expert must be a different person than the Referrer. We check all referrals and disqualify any suspicious referrals. Any disqualified referrals are not eligible for reward payments. If you believe we disqualified a referral in error please contact us, and we'll help you resolve the issue.
A Referred Expert becomes a Qualified Referral once reaching 50 USD in total sales on ChampChat. Each Referred Expert only counts as one Qualified Referral regardless of more sales. We reserve the right to recover any Referral Rewards for refunded sales to a Referred Expert.
Each Qualified Referral results in a Referral Award to the Referrer. The Referrer will receive the equal of USD 50 in your currency minus any exchange fees from Stripe. The Referred Expert will receive 0% transaction fees for a limited time, "the Referred Expert Award", on all non-subscription-based sales on ChampChat. The Referred Expert Award will last 21 days from when they created their Expert Profile. If payment is authorized within 21-days but captured after 21-days, the Referred Expert Award still applies. For example, on day 21 a Client pays to book a Question, and on day 24 the Referred Expert answers capturing the payment.
Referrer Rewards are made in increments of USD 50. The Referrer must have connected their Stripe account to their ChampChat Expert account to receive payout. Reward Payouts are calculated and distributed up to 31 days after the Qualified Referral is created.
To be eligible you must be a ChampChat expert.
The Referrer must follow all Anti-Spam laws. Referrers may not spam or use any other means to promote their Referral Link. We reserve the right to disqualify any Referrer who we believe is spamming or using other means to promote their Referral Link.
Right to Close Accounts
We reserve the right to close any Referrer's and/or the Referred Expert's account at any time for any reason. If we close your account, you will not be eligible for any Referral Rewards.
Right to End or Change Program
We reserve the right to end or change the Expert Referral Program Terms at any time. If we end the Expert Referral Program, you will not be eligible for any unclaimed Referral Rewards at that time.
