Boxes Credits & Refer a Friend Terms
Boxes Credits & Refer a Friend Terms
Last Revised: June 11, 2015
We reward you for inviting your friends to join BOXES. For every person you invite to join BOXES who opens an account using your unique link or invite code each of you will receive a $50 credit to spend on BOXES. These credits will be given only once for each mobile device which registers regardless of how many separate accounts you create using the same device.
BOXES reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits in the event that BOXES determines or believes that the issuance or redemption of the credits was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the Terms of BOXES. BOXES may change the amount of credit given for inviting friends or stop giving a credit entirely in the future without prior notice.
Boxes Premium Account
If you invite 20 or more people to join BOXES using our mobile app your account will be upgraded to BOXES Premium for free. Your friends don’t have to join for you to receive the upgrade. All you have to do is invite them.
BOXES Premium does not include future account services or options which are made available by BOXES. Those new services can be purchased for a fee.
Using Your Credits
Your credits can be used to purchase items listed for sale by sellers who accept BOXES Credits. Up to 10% of the purchase price can be paid for using your credits. The remainder of the purchase price must be paid using another payment method. Don’t wait to use your credits. They will expire one (1) year after you receive them.

Description of the Program
The purpose of the Program is to allow you to earn cash when friends you invite to use the App or the Website (who used your personal link or code) sell items using BOXES’ credit card processing system in transactions which do not include BOXES Credits (“Eligible Sales”). This is a discretionary marketing fee paid to you based on the value of your friends’ Eligible Sales.
Every account owner over 18 is eligible. However, BOXES reserves the right to exclude you from the Program if BOXES determines your use of the Program is inappropriate.
How Much Can I Earn
The amount you earn is directly related to how much your invited friends sell. BOXES charges a service charge for each item sold using the App or the Website. You will be paid thirty percent (30%) of that service charge for each Eligible Sale. Remember, if the buyer uses BOXES Credits for part of the purchase that transaction is not an Eligible Sale and you will not earn a fee. Nothing in life stays the same forever and neither will this rate. In the future BOXES may change the percentage you are paid. By participating in this Program you agree to any published changes in the rate.
From time to time BOXES might request information from you to verify you are complying with this Agreement. Besides any other rights or remedies BOXES has, BOXES may terminate this Agreement, withhold (and you agree you are not eligible for) any fees payable to you under this Agreement, or both, if BOXES determine that you or other persons that BOXES determines are affiliated with you or acting in concert with you (whether in respect to any existing or previously terminated account) have not complied with any requirement or restriction described in this Agreement.
By participating in the Program, you consent to BOXES sending you emails related to the Program.
BOXES will track Eligible Sales by your friends and will make reports available to you which summarize those sales.
Earning a Fee
BOXES will pay you a marketing fee on Eligible Sales. A sale is considered complete for purposes of this Program ninety (90) days after the credit card has been successfully charged using BOXES’ credit card processing system without a chargeback or other refund being given to the credit card holder.
Your fee will be paid monthly on Eligible Sales. You will be paid approximately ninety (90) days after the credit card transaction was completed. Your fee will be paid to your Boxes account.
Some states and the U.S. government might require BOXES to collect tax information about you if you are a U.S. citizen, U.S. resident, or U.S. corporation, or if your business is otherwise taxable in the U.S. If BOXES requests tax information from you and you do not provide it to us, BOXES may (in addition to any other rights or remedies available) withhold your fee until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy BOXES that you are not a person from whom BOXES is required to obtain tax information.
If there is a dispute between you and another person who claims to be entitled to the fee, BOXES will pay the fee to the person who is the verified owner of the email address which created the account.
Following the Law
As part of this Agreement, you agree to comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, and other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you, including laws (federal, state, or otherwise) that govern marketing email.
You are an independent contractor and responsible for paying your own taxes. This Agreement does not create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between you and BOXES or BOXES’ respective affiliates. You have no authority to represent anything to the contrary to anyone or encourage someone else to similarly make a false representation.
