6. payment of Commission Payments

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is available only to domestic CashParking Customers (CashParking Customers based in the U.S.).  Domestic CashParking Customers utilizing direct deposit will be paid Commission Payments to the U.S. bank account of their choice (“Direct Deposit Account”). You understand it is your responsibility to provide a valid U.S. bank account number and the related direct deposit information by signing into the Go Daddy Control Center. Failure to provide a valid Direct Deposit Account will cause your Commission Payments to be withheld pending receipt by Go Daddy of proper direct deposit instructions. You can find the instructions on how to set up a Direct Deposit Account at any time by clicking on the “Payment Information” link from your home page on the Go Daddy Control Center.

Domestic CashParking Customers hereby authorize Go Daddy to initiate and post credit (positive) entries for Commission Payments to the Direct Deposit Account. Domestic CashParking Customers understand the amount initiated and posted to the Direct Deposit Account on a monthly basis will represent payment for commissions earned in the preceding second month, less any applicable fees and/or charge backs. For example, commissions earned in January 2010 would be paid by March 15, 2010. Direct Deposit Account owners hereby authorize their “Depository Institution” to accept credits on behalf of the Direct Deposit Account owner. Direct deposit transactions will be initiated on the 15th day of each month or if the 15th falls on a non-banking day, then direct deposit transactions will be initiated the next banking day. A $10.00 minimum threshold is required before a payment is made to the Direct Deposit Account.

Domestic CashParking Customers hereby authorize Go Daddy to initiate and post debit (negative) entries to the Direct Deposit Account to reverse erroneous Commission Payments and/or make adjustments to incorrect Commission Payments.

The authority granted to Go Daddy by the Direct Deposit Account owner herein will remain in full force and effect until Go Daddy or the Depository Institution has received written notification from the Direct Deposit Account owner that such authority has been revoked, but in any event, such writing shall be provided in such a manner as to afford Go Daddy or the Depository Institution a reasonable opportunity to act on such revocation, or until Go Daddy or the Depository Institution has sent notice of Go Daddy or the Depository Institution’s termination of this Agreement.

PayPal®

PayPal is available to both domestic CashParking Customers (CashParking Customers based in the U.S.) and international CashParking Customers (CashParking Customers based outside the U.S.). CashParking Customers utilizing PayPal will be paid out monthly on the 15th day of the month for the previous second month’s commissions.

Should the 15th day of the month fall on a Sunday or holiday, the payout date will be on the next business day. A $25.00 minimum threshold is required before payment will be made to those accounts. If the payment amount exceeds $20,000.00, it will be split into two PayPal payment transactions. Please refer to the PayPal account set-up requirements for your country, which may be found here, to ensure your PayPal account has the ability to receive payments from third parties. Transaction fees for PayPal will be the responsibility of Go Daddy and will not be deducted from your Commission Payment.
