Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions

Exceed HR Affiliate Program


How it works:


The Exceed HR Referral Programme entitles you to earn 25% commission on enrolments that you refer to us.

Exceed HR will provide you with a unique referral ID/website link that points to our website and/or particular programmes. We will also provide you some images and banners for your choosing if you wish.

If a customer visits our website by clicking a link that contains your referral ID and enrols in a program, you will receive a 25% commission on the value of the enrolment.


Affiliate Terms and Conditions


As an authorised affiliate (Affiliate) of Exceed HR (Exceed HR), you agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement (Agreement). Please read the entire Agreement carefully before registering and promoting Exceed HR as an Affiliate.


Your participation in the Program is solely to legally advertise/advocate for our website to receive a commission on memberships and products purchased by individuals referred to Exceed HR by your own website or personal referrals.


Under these terms and conditions both you and Exceed HR are to be considered independent, this means the affiliate programme you wish to enter into does not create a relationship between either parties.  Therefore you can not act as a representative of any kind on our behalf as this would be considered contradicting this affiliate programme

By signing up for the Exceed HR Affiliate Program (Program), you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions.


At any time upon our sole discretion Exceed HR may modify the terms and conditions of this agreement; we must do so by posting a change notice or new agreement on our website and notification will be provided where appropriate.  It is the responsibility of the affiliate to regularly monitor our site for any modifications that may occur.


  1. Approval or Rejection of the Application

To protect the integrity of the program, only existing members, students or alumni are eligible to apply to be an affiliate with Exceed HR. We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate Program Application in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Application.


  1. Commissions

Commission fees are calculated as a percentage of each qualified purchase. The current schedule is 25% per product purchased; Percentages are based on the product price excluding GST.  Commissions will be rewarded on all enrolment purchases, including subscription re-bills.

Exceed HR reserves the right to deduct referral commissions paid out for fraudulent or refunded sales from the affiliate’s current and future commissions.

The commission fees may change at any time without prior notice

Commissions will be paid once a month. For an Affiliate to receive a commission, the referred account must remain active for a minimum of 30 days.


You cannot refer yourself, and you will not receive a commission on your own accounts. There is also a limit of one commission per referral. If someone clicks the link on your site and orders multiple accounts, then you will receive a commission on the first order only.


Affiliates are solely responsible for all tax obligations due to all taxing authorities arising from or in connection with the participation in our Program. Exceed HR will not withhold any taxes of any kind from any Commissions received by the affiliate. 

Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out.
