By signing up for the Affiliate Program or  participating in any Affiliate Program activities, you agree to be bound by this Agreement.  


The Affiliate Program is a program that allows Affiliates to promote BotStacks products and receive  a revenue share on qualifying customer subscriptions.

Conditions to participate in the Affiliate Program

To be eligible for the Affiliate Program, Affiliate must be the older of (a) 18 years or (b) at least  the age of majority in the jurisdiction where Affiliate resides and from where Affiliate carries out  Affiliate activities.  

To become an Affiliate, Affiliate must provide all information indicated as required. BotStacks may  reject an application for participation in the Affiliate Program for any reason, in its sole discretion.   

Software License

BotStacks will provide a limited license to use BotStacks - Software as a Service solution  (“Software”) to Affiliates for the purpose of determining the usability, desirability, functionality,  and compatibility of Software with Affiliate’s applications and operations environment. 

Affiliate’s  use of the Software is subject to the BotStacks Terms of Service, which are incorporated herein by  reference. BotStacks will provide Affiliates with reasonable technical support services in  accordance with Company’s standard practice.

Affiliate’s Obligations

All Affiliates agree to :

f. provide first-line support to end-customers and promptly respond to inquiries, resolve basic technical issues, and provide general guidance and assistance to end-customers regarding the use and functionality of the Software. 

Revenue Share

Revenue share calculations will be based on the subscription value of pricing plans Affiliate adds that calendar quarter and currently active subscription plans generated by that Affiliate.  

Revenue share for Affiliates will be calculated based on the rates set forth in Schedule A, as  amended by BotStacks from time to time. Only the license fees (including subscription fees and  usage fees but excluding any professional services fees) charged by BotStacks to the customer  pursuant to qualifying plans are considered to determine Affiliate’s revenue share. A qualifying  plan for revenue share is defined as a customer plan that was sourced and referred by the Affiliate  to BotStacks via the correct channels in accordance with all requirements of the Affiliate Program.

Affiliates are eligible to receive a revenue share for a limited duration at  the beginning of BotStacks’ relationship with a new customer, as set forth in Schedule A.  

Payment Terms

Revenue share payments are made monthly for self-serve plans that are invoiced monthly to the  customer and quarterly for enterprise plans based on the total amount paid or recognized for  qualifying plans in that quarter by the Affiliate (for the purpose of the Affiliate Program, annual  payments based on enterprise plans are recognized quarterly).
