Terms and Conditions
XPays offers an opportunity for operators of adult-oriented Internet web Sites ("Hosts") to direct traffic to its Sponsors' Sites and earn a commission of $20.00-$30.00 each time one of those visitors joins an XPays' Sponsor Site. XPays also offers other revenue sharing opportunities with adult toy & product sales through XSextoy.
The terms and conditions of this Agreement are as follows:
1. How XPays Operates:
1.1 Visitors to your Site shall be directed to XPays' Sponsor Sites via an Internet hypertext transfer link. XPays shall designate and design the appearance and syntax of the hypertext transfer links which will appear at your Site -- although you may choose to display banners, text links, or full page promotional ads at your Site.
1.2 Upon sign-up you will be provided with instructions as to how to generate & install the HTML code which will display XPays text links, banners and/or full page ads on your web Site. You must install the HTML code as instructed in order to receive proper credit. The following actions shall be cause for denial of payment and immediate termination and may result in legal action at XPays' discretion: spamming, illegal content, and any falsification of sign-ups. The above list is not meant to be exhaustive of prohibited conduct.
1.3 Upon sign-up you will be asked to enter a password. Please remember it, as you will need it in order to make changes to your account. After you submit your sign-up form you will receive an e-mail confirmation and your unique 5-digit XPays ID number. This number, when installed in hypertext transfer links or HTML, will ensure proper credit for sign-ups. Please also use this ID number whenever contacting XPays Customer Service.
1.4 Your commission shall be earned on each "sign-up" which occurs when a user, directed from your site, signs-up with a Sponsor Site. Separate commissions shall also be earned on completed XSextoy purchases and completed XPacket Phone Sex calls.
2. Site Owner/Operator Obligations:
You are required to enter Federal Tax ID or Social Security Number on the registration form. XPays will register a 1099 for all U.S. domestic entities or a 1042-s for all foreign entities to whom we issue combined yearly payments of $600.00 or more. Any falsification of Social Security or Tax ID numbers shall be cause for denial of payment and immediate account termination.
It is the responsiblity of the Host to keep all account information with XPays up-to-date and accurate. It is also the responsiblity of the Host to periodically check their e-mail to stay informed of changes to XPays' programs.
Host is solely responsible for providing accurate address/delivery information to ensure proper delivery of payment. Since payments are computer-generated, inaccurate/improper address information will delay payment.
3. Rights Granted:
3.1 XPays grants to the person or entity, who is the owner/operator of an Internet Site (hereinafter "Site Operator" or "Host") the non-exclusive right to direct (refer) users or visitors to their web Site to XPays Sponsors' Web Site(s).
3.2 XPays grants to Host a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, during the term of this Agreement, to use graphics, including banners, and other intellectual properties (hereinafter "marks") owned by XPays for the sole purpose of marketing, advertising and promoting XPays Sponsors' Site(s). The Host may not alter or modify the link, banner, or graphic, or any other marks, in any way, without the prior written permission of XPays. The license herein granted shall automatically and immediately cease upon the termination of this Agreement.
3.3 The rights granted herein shall be for reasonable, appropriate and lawful use, only.

Hosts will receive 20% of all order totals (before tax & shipping charges) referred through the XSextoy and XXSexToy storefronts.
Dialers have been integrated into the XPays network as follows:
Dialer ads appear at the end of most exit chains, AND traffic that originates from countries where credit cards are not accepted by XPays Sponsor sites automatically redirects to an appropriate dialer. This way, the buying power of your international traffic is maximized rather than dying in a restricted credit card process. At the end of each calendar month, dialer revenue is pooled and divided among all active XPays webmasters, according to amount of trafffic sent, number of joins during the month, and other performance-based criteria. Payout for dialer revenue is added to monthly commission checks as "Misc. Revenue" and appears after the close of month in the email revenue summary.
Commisions for referring other adult webmasters to XPays under the Webmaster Referral Program are as follows:
- $1.00 for every adult web site sign-up generated by other Hosts you have referred.
- 2% of revenue share transactions initiated through your referred Host's XPays account.
- 2% of completed XSextoy transactions initiated through your referred Host's XPays account.
Hosts will also receive XPays points, earned on an XPays account's monthly commission totals, in the amount of one (1) point for every full dollar of commissions earned, and with a maximum accumulation of 4000 points per month per individual, company, household, or Tax ID. XPays points are redeemable for merchandise through XThreadz.com. XPays points will register after the close of the previous calendar month. XPays points are transferable at the sole discretion of XPays. This promotion may be discontinued at any time; redeemable merchandise may be discontinued at any time. Void where prohibited. International shipments subject to XPays' approval. As of December 5th, 2012, the XPoints promotion has been discontinued.
Payments will be made on a monthly basis as long as your account has accumulated the minimum payout you have designated or at least $8.00.
Otherwise, accumulated payout will be carried over to the next month until your monthly total reaches your minimum payout.
All payments will be made by check in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise arranged.
All commission statistics during a month are UNOFFICIAL until designated OFFICIAL by XPays after the close of that calendar month. OFFICIAL stats and payments are dispatched by the 20th day after the close of a calendar month (or first business day thereafter if the 20th falls on a weekend). Please consult the official Payout Calendar for specific pay period dates.
