TopSurfer offers a unique membership program, where the members themselves sell the membership.
TopSurfer, still owns the website, all it's scripts and hosting services. TopSurfer grants access to these areas with the following conditions and general rules:
TopSurfer will regulate the site but, is not responsible for member conduct in anyway.
TopSurfer can not be held liable for miss directed payments, payments not reembursed, or any other agreement made between the seller and buyer.
TopSurfer will not make any refunds of money that was not originally given to TopSurfer.
TopSurfer makes this general rule that NO refunds be made from the seller to the buyer except in this condition:
The member who sent payment never received a wholesale membership account.
In the event of a refund all (each individual) refund/reembursment/discount/etc must first be approved by TopSurfer,
any partial or full refunds/reembursments/discounts/etc will result in loss of services on TopSurfer.com.
DO NOT GIVE AWAY WHOLESALE MEMBERSHIPS!
All wholesale memberships must be exchanged/sold at full market value these cannot be given away.
The only discounts are those proposed by TopSurfer.com.
The scripts and services may not be manipulated to give away wholesale memberships.
TopSurfer is set up as a community where everyone contributes,
if someone manipulates TopSurfer in anyway that may cause damage to the entire community then we will suspend their account.
Giving away or excessivly discounting wholesale memberships is damaging to the community and is unfair to other members.
It can flood the pool of hits that need to be used which will cause all hits to be used slower.
If anyone finds someone giving away or discounting wholesale membership, more than what is offered on the site,
please report them immediately and we will reward the first person to report them with a free solo-ad credit.
Paying for wholesale memberships
TopSurfer provides several ways to collect payments from their buyers for wholesale memberships.
Including a miscelanious method that allows you to add a method of your choice as long as it fits into the script with the appropriate fields in it's buttons (so that the button can be changed dynamically by our scripts and prices, etc. can be changed depending on which package the person wants to buy).
As a wholesale member you are required to use one or all of these services if you wish to sell wholesale memberships.
You can not bypass these methods and use your own.
You should not be paid directly.
This system is meant to be automated and since you would receive 100% of the money and
TopSurfer does not make any money from the upgrade, then this needs to be automated with little involvement from TopSurfer.
Also to make sure the person is in your downline and to make sure that they should be paying you, all payments must go through the system/scripts at TopSurfer.
If you receive payment from a downline member and they did not use the automated method at TopSurfer, you should refund their money and ask them to go through the right methods.
In no circumstance should you falsify payment or method of payment.
If at anytime you are confused or have any questions about proceedure you should contact us at TopSurfer by using the "Contact Us" link found on almost every page of TopSurfer.
