Amounts Will Vary
On this website we loosely use
the amount of $150 based on a 1 year sign up. We use that number
to simplify the process of writing and reading the pages and make
it easier to understand and remember.
The actual amount based on the $19.95 at 100% of the first 3
months and 50% of the next 9 month is $149.62 which is slightly less than than our
rounded amount of $150.00.
But this actual amount can
vary slightly based on when payments are made. That is why we
specifically define the payments as "100% of the
first 3 months and 50% of the next 9 months".
Customers are not always
reliable, so they often let the site expire and we charge them
the back fees.
For example, if site "mypagebuzzsite.com"
is 10 days over due the owner would be charged $19.95 to renew
for 30 days and 1/3 of $19.95 or and additional $6.65 for the
back time. So your payment would go up to $26.64 at 100% or $13.32
If the site was a full month
overdue, then the system will count it as 2 payments and not one
payment and no additional income is earned by the sales agent.
So anyone that runs days late
paying can actually increase your commission.
We don't want anyone to think
we are skimming cash, or diverting funds or over exaggerating the
amount actually paid. We try to be as honest as possible and
explain all of this to everyone in advance.
In your management area you
get dates of signups, the actual website domain, dates of
payments and payment amounts so you can track exactly what is
happening and what your percentage and payout will be each week.
For the sake of user
friendliness, we use the rounded number of $150 rather than $149.62
knowing that in fact some payments will exceed that amount and
some will not meet the full $150.
There is also the issue of
promotions and specials. Should we offer a special, the
commission would be based on the special pricing. You would still
get 100% of the first 3 months and 50% of the next 9 months. But
the amount would change based on the actual amount charged.
This also applies to rate
changes. If we change the rate or cost of the service or charge
extra for specialized services, you would continue to get the
same percentage but the amount would increase or decrease with
the pricing of the services.
Our price has changed over our
10 years of service, but our payouts have remained constant with
agents making more money as our price increased.
We hope this page will make it
clear that the $150 is a rounded and convenient amount for
publishing and not an attempt to exaggerate the facts. There is
no malicious intent, it is just an easier number to use in print,
on the phone and elsewhere.
There is no guarantee that
anyone will remain hosted for 1 full year. So there is no
guarantee that you will get the full $149.62. We do employ
automated billing, so in most cases, the payments are automatic.
Except where credit cards are maxed out and funds cannot be
collected or when users cancel service.
It is the responsibility of
the sales agents to find customers that will be with us long term.
We do everything possible to
retain customers and we pay agents 100% of the first 3 months
when we are active working with customers and providing hours of
support. So nobody wants customers to remain more than pageBuzz.
We do not break even until year 2 when we stop paying the
commissions. So please understand, if one of your accounts
canceled and the residual payments stopped, we are just as upset
since we made nothing at all. At least you made some money if not
the entire $149.62.
