10. Partner Program
Vendors are consultants of Bizstim that sell business management software subscriptions to clients. Clients are business owners within the Vendors portfolio and are clients of Bizstim. These terms will be referred to in the following sections and are defined as such.
Vendor applicants to the Partner Program are expected to fill out the Vendor Application Form in full. In addition, potential vendors will be contacted via e-mail and or phone to discuss their qualifications. Bizstim reserves the right to deny applicants on any grounds without explanation. Bizstim is an equal opportunity employer.
New vendors that have their applications accepted will undergo a 3 month probation period. In that time they are expected to add a minimum of 5 clients to their portfolio. During this time Bizstim management will provide access to tutorial videos, the Help Center, e-mail support, and phone support to aid the Vendor and clients.
Vendors are considered contractors of Bizstim and are expected to represent the company in a positive professional manner. Vendors earn income in the following ways:
- verified trial sign-ups
- a portion of the monthly subscription fee
- on-boarding and ongoing software support
A verified trial account must meet all of the following criteria:
- an active business for at least 3 months
- a functioning website with a contact phone number or e-mail
- can be contacted via phone for a brief courtesy call
- feedback from the client with respect to the vendor is satisfactory
- the trial client has not previously worked with another vendor in the past
- the client is within their 21 day trial, not including extensions, or other special case scenarios
A portion of the subscription fee is an amount based on the plan chosen by the client minus operating costs. Here is an example of the payout for subscription fees (subject to change):
- Individual Plan: $2.50
- Small Business Plan: $10.00
- Enterprise Plan: $25.00
Vendors may charge additional on-boarding and support fees to the client they sign-up. Vendors may charge NO MORE than $50/hour for their software support. We recommend support fees range from $25/hour to $50/hour. Changes to this rule will be handled on a case by case basis. Bizstim will still offer vendors and clients software support via video tutorials, the Help Center, e-mail, and phone. Every opportunity will be taken to forward clients to their vendor in the case the client contacts Bizstim directly. Nonetheless, Bizstim reserves the right to help the client if the situation demands it.
Bizstim reserves the right to terminate a vendor at any time without explanation. Typical reasons for termination may include, but are not limited to:
- inability of the client to contact the vendor in a timely duration
- inability of Bizstim management to contact the vendor in a timely duration
- inappropriate conduct by the vendor of any kind
- activities by the vendor to 'game' or manipulate the Partner Program to commit fraud
- fraudulent activity of any kind
- inactivity; occurs when the vendor has discontinued growing their portfolio and has fewer than 5 clients for more than 3 months in a row not including a 3 month probation period
Bizstim clients that wish to sever their relationship with their vendor may do so at any time. In addition, clients may ask a Bizstim representative to 'unlink' their account from their vendor. When a client is 'unlinked' from a vendor the following occurs:
- the vendor no longer accumulates a portion of the subscription fee
- the vendor is not permitted to sell software support to the client
- the vendor is not permitted to contact the client at any time unless expressly asked to do so by the client
- the vendor will not see the client in their portfolio list
Vendor's can choose to sever their relationship with the client at any time. Clients that are no longer serviced by a vendor will become the sole responsibility of Bizstim with respect to software support.
Bizstim does not accept any liability with respect to fraudulent conduct or other nefarious activities by vendors. In the event this is the case, the vendor will be subject to terminiation as outlined above and face any and all penalties as outlined by the laws of their local governments.
