The percentages of remuneration due to the affiliate, refer to the total amount paid by MASSARO METHOD for all successful purchases, with the reserve for what may be orders cancelled or not successful.
This percentage will be paid only on successfully completed orders for the purchase of ebooks on the website. A “Successful order” means an order duly accepted and paid by the end customer.
