6.1 Commissions. VIPWH shall compensate each Affiliate in accordance with VIPWH's then current commission schedule for each verified sale by a visitor to Affiliate, resulting in a new VIPWH customer who remains in good standing for a period of at least 45 days after signup. If you are a United States citizen or resident or other non-foreign person, participation in the Program and payment of commissions is conditioned upon your satisfactory completion of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 and any other tax forms that VIPWH, in its sole discretion, determines to be necessary or appropriate. If you are a nonresident alien of the United States or other foreign person (such as a foreign corporation), participation in the Program and payment of commissions is conditioned upon your satisfactory completion of a Certification Form, the form of which shall be determined by VIPWH, by which you certify that commissions you derive from participation in the Program are not effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States. If your commissions become effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States , you will immediately become ineligible for participation in the Program and must notify VIPWH of this change in status within 30 days of the change. If no date of change is given in the notice, the change will be deemed to have occurred 30 days prior to receipt by VIPWH of the notice.  Nonresident aliens participating in the Program who become a United States citizen or resident will immediately become ineligible for participation in the Program and must notify VIPWH of their change in status within 30 days of the change. If no date of change is given in the notice, the change will be deemed to have occurred 30 days prior to receipt by VIPWH of the notice. A former nonresident alien will thereafter become entitled to re-enter the Program upon satisfactory completion of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 and any other tax forms that VIPWH, in its sole discretion, determines to be necessary or appropriate. It is each Affiliate's (and not VIPWH's) obligation to ensure that the Affiliate obtains, completes in full and provides VIPWH with the necessary and appropriate Internal Revenue Service or other tax forms so that VIPWH may pay such Affiliate any commissions due Affiliate. VIPWH shall not make any commission payments to an Affiliate unless and until the Affiliate provides VIPWH with the necessary and appropriate Internal Revenue Service or other tax forms. In the event that VIPWH makes payments to an Affiliate without having received all proper tax forms, such payments shall be deemed refundable advances and VIPWH has the right to request from the Affiliate in violation to pay back these advances within 30 days of being notified by VIPWH. Click here for Internal Revenue Service Form W-9. Click here for the CERTIFICATION Form. Please print, complete in full, and send to VIPWH at the following address the necessary forms: VIPWH.com, Affiliate Administration, 6776 Southwest Freeway Suite 600, Houston , TX 77074 . PLEASE WRITE THE URL OF YOUR SITE AND YOUR CONTACT EMAIL ON THE TOP OF THE W-9 OR CERTIFICATION FORM.

IF VIPWH DOES NOT RECEIVE THE NECESSARY TAX FORMS BY THE AFOREMENTIONED DEADLINE, AFFILIATE WILL NO LONGER BE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE ANY COMMISSIONS FOR SUCH CALENDAR YEAR AND ALREADY PAID COMMISSIONS ARE CONSIDERED FULLY REFUNDABLE ADVANCES. FOR EXAMPLE, IF AFFILIATE OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE BEEN ENTITLED TO RECEIVE $200.00 IN COMMISSIONS DURING THE CALENDAR YEAR 2006, BUT FAILED TO PROVIDE VIPWH WITH THE NECESSARY TAX FORMS BY JANUARY 31, 2007, AFFILIATE WILL NO LONGER BE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE THE $200.00 AND, AS OF FEBRUARY 1, 2007, HIS/HER COMMISSION AMOUNT WILL BE ZERO. IF AFFILIATE ALREADY RECEIVED ANY COMMISSION PAYMENT, SUCH PAYMENT WILL HAVE TO BE REFUNDED BY AFFILIATE TO VIPWH.Payments to Affiliate shall be sent to the address provided on the tax forms submitted by Affiliate to VIPWH.
6.2 Time of Payments and Minimum Commissions. Commissions shall be paid to Affiliate once per month within 45 days after close of a calendar month for all commissions earned in the previous month (i.e. all commissions earned between June 1 and June 30 will be paid on or before August 15); provided that Affiliate accumulates at least $150 in total commissions for a given month within a calendar year. No payment will be made for accumulated amounts under $150. Any unpaid commissions earned in one month shall be paid in the next month in which the total unpaid commissions earned by Affiliate exceeds $150. VIPWH reserves the right to reset all Affiliate accounts that have not accumulated more than $150 in commissions by December 31 of each calendar year to zero on January 1.
