This MONQ Ambassador Program Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into by MONQ, LLC (“MONQ”) and the party executing this Agreement (“Ambassador”). This Agreement governs the Ambassador’s participation in the MONQ Ambassador Program described herein (the “Program”). You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the full legal authority to enter into this Agreement; (ii) you have read and understood the Agreement, and (iii) you agree to the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement is effective between the Ambassador and MONQ as of the date the Ambassador responds to the invitation e-mail by affirmatively agreeing to participate in the Program.
“Ambassador” means a member of the Program who is at least 18 years old with a primary residence in the United States who is an individual with a valid tax ID number or social security number.
“Custom URL” means the unique URL to be provided by MONQ to Ambassador and which will correlate Eligible Referrals submitted by Ambassador to Ambassador’s Program account.
“Eligible Referral” means an eligible net new customer lead for the direct online purchase of the MONQ Products directly from MONQ.com, excluding Ineligible Referrals. You are not considered an Eligible Referral.
“Ineligible Referrals” means government officials, government-owned or controlled entities and any of their employees, political parties and candidates and MONQ representatives, agents or employees.
“MONQ Products” means the products generally sold by MONQ and offered on MONQ’s website at monq.com.
“Referral” is a new customer lead for MONQ Products submitted by Ambassador, via its Custom URL, to MONQ.
“Referral Fees” means the fees, to be paid by MONQ to Ambassador, via cash or store credit, for Eligible Referrals that result in a Valid Transaction.
“Valid Transaction” is a closed sale for MONQ Products originating through an Ambassador’s Custom URL and which is made online directly between an Eligible Referral and MONQ in compliance with the requirements for payment of Referral Fees.
In compliance with this Agreement Ambassador will promote the Products only to Eligible Referrals who are at least 18 years of age. MONQ will provide Ambassador with a Custom URL for the purpose of correlating any Eligible Referrals resulting in a Valid Transaction under this Agreement. An Eligible Referral will receive a 10% discount on their initial purchase of MONQ Product originating from Ambassador’s Custom URL. A Valid Transaction must always originate from Ambassador’s Custom URL, or unique coupon code, as applicable, to qualify for Referral Fees.
Ambassador represents, warrants and certifies to MONQ that: (i) it has legal authority to enter into these terms and participate in the Program; and (ii) it will comply with all applicable laws and governmental regulations.
Termination and Modification of Terms
MONQ may at any time and in its sole discretion: (i) modify or update the terms of, including but not limited to, the Program, this Agreement and will make such modified or updated terms available in writing, or (ii) revoke an Ambassador’s account, and/or terminate Ambassador’s participation in the Program in its entirety. If MONQ provides Ambassador with an updated Custom URL Ambassador agrees to begin using, and will be subject to, such updated versions no later than 7 days after receiving them.
Payment | Referral Fees
MONQ will pay Ambassador a commission for each Eligible Referral’s purchase that results in a Valid Transaction equal to between 10% and 20% of the purchase amount of the Valid Transaction, excluding taxes, shipping, and any returns.
Ambassadors generating $5,000 or more in sales in the previous calendar month will be paid 20%, in cash.
Ambassadors generating $1,000 or more in sales in the previous calendar month will be paid 10%, in cash.
Ambassadors generating up to $999 in sales in the previous calendar month, will be paid 10%, in store credit.
A Valid Transaction will only take place when: (a) an Eligible Referral completes a purchase online directly with MONQ using a valid payment instrument for the purchase of MONQ Products; (b) purchase originates from a Custom URL, or uses a coupon code, correlating to Ambassador’s account; (c) the Eligible Referral has not previously purchased MONQ Products from MONQ, and (d) where all the foregoing occurs during Ambassador’s period of participation in the Program. MONQ may, at its sole option, prospectively increase or decrease Referral Fees amounts by providing written notice (email/electronic communication permitted) to Ambassador, or update this Agreement. MONQ reserves the right, in its sole discretion not to pay any Referral Fees to Ambassador where MONQ determines Ambassador’s actions are not consistent with the intent of this Program, including if Ambassador’s URL and/or coupon code is found to be utilized from a Coupon Code aggregator website such as Join Honey or Coupon Okay.
For any month in which the earned referral fees are up to $99.99, compensation will be provided in store credit to be utilized at MONQ.com. For any calendar month in which the earned referral fees are $100.00 or greater, the fees will be paid via PayPal. PayPal’s commission may be deducted from your payment. The Referral Fee will be considered earned 45 days after the Valid Transaction and the amounts of any returns will be deducted from the purchase amount used to calculate the Referral Fees. Referral fees will be issued to Ambassador on a monthly basis, in US Dollars.
Ambassador is solely responsible for ensuring its account information is accurate and current. MONQ will not be responsible for any payments not received due to Ambassador’s failing to provide accurate and complete account information for payment. MONQ reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the terms and conditions of the payment process to Ambassador.
In addition to any other obligations set forth in this Agreement, the Ambassador agrees to the following:
- Ambassador shall not represent a competitor of MONQ while participating in the Program;
- Ambassador shall not “stalk” a competitor’s website or social platforms for sales;
- Ambassador shall not post his or her referral link on MONQ platforms, including, but not limited to, @MONQ or @MyMONQ social media profiles, MONQ.com, and MONQ.com/eo;
- Ambassador shall not post his or her referral link to coupon websites, applications, or similar platforms or use Google Adwords. Violation of this Section shall result in immediate termination of Ambassador’s Program account and forfeiture of all unpaid Referral Fees earned prior to the date of such termination;
- Ambassador shall not under any circumstances pose as MONQ on any social media platform or domain name, including, but not limited to, by creating lookalike, impostor or false “MONQ” accounts, and shall not use the word “MONQ” in any social media handle.

The Term will continue until terminated by either party as provided herein.

In the event of a termination, Ambassador will only receive Referral Fees that were earned in full for a Valid Transaction that occurred prior to the effective termination date.
Any suspected abuse of the Program, illegal activity, fraud, misrepresentation or other conduct inconsistent with these Terms and/or detrimental to MONQ or its interests may result in the revocation of Ambassador status and make Ambassador ineligible for further participation in the Program.
