(Paid Upfront option is subject to full GBcash TOS excluding payment periods)
Description: PaidUpfront is an optional feature when using the GBcash program. Webmasters may be compensated upfront on a "promise to provide qualifying traffic over time" basis.

PaidUpfront Special terms:

Participation is voluntary and by affiliate's request ONLY. Participants do not qualify for "bonus" offers. Once you accept a prepayment, you may continue with the GBcash program under regular program pay rules, however this does not make you eligible for the signup bonus. If you do not ever request prepayment, you will be paid by the normal GBcash payment terms and remain eligible for bonus incentive offers.

Acceptance of prepaid funds by an affiliate constitutes a binding agreement between GBcash & Affiliate, that holds you the affiliate responsible to deliver through the use of the GBcash PPC program, an amount of qualifying traffic within a reasonable amount of time, equal to or greater than the amount of money paid to affiliate.

Qualifying traffic, is traffic counted through the GBcash program statistics, using the GBcash cut-and-paste ad/banner codes provided. Rules of traffic delivery for prepaid traffic is 100% the same as the rules set forth within this agreement for delivery of normal non-PaidUpfront traffic and subject to the same dismissals and or voids.

Traffic sent on a prepaid agreement, not in accordance with the terms of service, will not be counted in any way towards the fulfillment of the prepaid affiliates obligation.

Those affiliates that do not fulfill any prepaid agreement within a period of 90 days (on an initial $30 payout, 120 days on a max. projected payout) will be considered delinquent, and at the responsible discretion (after attempted reconciliation) of the company, a "cheater", is subject to the full exposure to the public through any and all means deemed appropriate by GBcash. All we ask for is contact, and cooperation to avoid this.

Maximum initial payout on PaidUpfront $30.00 USD.

2nd Tier referral money does not qualify for prepayment. Money accumulated on your 2nd tier referral level will be paid out per standard GBcash payout rules.

GBcash reserves the right to refuse prepayment to any affilate, at any time. Furthermore, GBcash reserves the right to limit prepayout amounts to any affiliate for any reason.

Once the first obligated amount paid has been satisfied, the second prepayment (also on a by request basis) shall be figured at an amount calculated buy a 3 day average traffic delivery from previous prepayment term, projecting a month's total click-through volume. Upon satisfying the 2nd prepaid obligation, GBcash will pay up to 3 months based on projection using previous click-through statistic averages.

Affiliates that fail to request further prepayment, yet still run GBcash ads/banners on their sites, WILL STILL BE COUNTED, AND COMPENSATED under regular payment terms providing standard TOS rules are followed. Those accounts will be paid per normal GBcash payment terms.

 

8. You are not an agent, officer, representative, or employee of GBcash, nor are we forming any binding business partnership with you, your company, or the website you run. The financial limit of our relationship begins with you sending traffic to our program links, and is concluded at the time you stop, and GBcash has paid the funds earned provided the minimum amount is reached, and the accumulated funds were earned in complete accordance with this agreement. Gbcash's liability to ANY affiliate shall never exceed a current period's owed funds.

 

9. The company may change this TOS with or without notice at any time, for any reason.
