Partner is responsible for managing any Leads submitted to Klaviyo.
5.3.b. Lead Registration. Klaviyo will review Leads submitted by Partner through the Lead Registration Application to determine in its reasonable discretion as to whether the Lead meets the Qualified Referral Requirements. Klaviyo will notify Partner through the Partner Portal or via email whether Klaviyo accepts or rejects a Lead as a Qualified Referral. If a Lead Registration Application is not accepted or rejected within ninety (90) days of the Lead Submission Date, Partner will need to re-submit the Lead Registration Application for the Lead to be considered. If Klaviyo rejects a Lead, Partner will immediately cease all Referral Services with respect to such Lead.

For each Lead accepted as a Qualified Referral, Partner, at Klaviyo’s request, shall meet with Klaviyo to discuss each Qualified Referral in reasonable detail, and will assist Klaviyo in making contact with the Qualified Referral by arranging an introduction, meeting, conference call, or other means of communication between Klaviyo and the Qualified Referral.
A Partner will be notified via email when the opportunity is: (i) closed/won and the Qualified Referral converts to a paying Klaviyo Customer for which Partner is eligible to receive Referral Fees, or (ii) if the opportunity with the Qualified Referral is closed/lost and the opportunity ceases to be a Qualified Referral. For the avoidance of doubt, Klaviyo may choose to reject a Qualified Referral with reasonable discretion. Qualified Referrals will be considered for Program Credit at Klaviyo’s sole discretion.
5.4 Warranties to Third Parties. Except in the course of delivering the Klaviyo Materials as specifically permitted herein, Partner shall not provide any representations or warranties to any Leads or any other third party with respect to the Klaviyo Products.
6. FEES; PAYMENT.
6.1a. Referral Fees. Partner becomes eligible to receive certain fees upon conversion of any Qualified Referrals into paying Klaviyo Customers with a paid subscription for one or multiple Klaviyo Products (the “Referral Fees”). Referral Fees are calculated as set forth in Section 6.3 below based on the subscription fees Klaviyo actually receives for each eligible Klaviyo Product(s), net of any discounts, taxes payable and subsequent refunds and the Partner’s Tier on the date Lead Registration Application is accepted as a Qualified Referral. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Qualified Referrals will be considered for Program Credit at our discretion.
6.1.b. Master Partner Fees. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and if applicable, in addition to the Referral Fees, Partners who qualify as Master Partners, are eligible to receive a fee in connection with the management of Klaviyo Customer accounts as identified in the Partner Portal (“Management Fees”). Management Fees are calculated as set forth in Section 6.3 below based on the subscription fees Klaviyo actually received from the respective Klaviyo Customer for each eligible Klaviyo Product(s), net of any discounts, taxes payable and subsequent refunds and the Partner’s Tier on the date of the Lead Registration Application is accepted as a Qualified Referral. In order for Partner to receive any Management Fees for a particular Klaviyo Customer, Partner must submit the unique customer ID associated with such Klaviyo Customer in the Partner Portal and the Klaviyo Customer must confirm to Klaviyo in writing that Partner provides it with the Master Track Services. The eligible payout amount for any applicable Management Fees are calculated by taking the total amount of Klaviyo Customers successfully completed subscription payments in period, multiplied by a Partner’s respective Tier rate and divided by twelve (12) months. During the Term, Master Partners are eligible to continue to receive Management Fees so long as such Klaviyo Customer has a current active paid subscription for one or more Klaviyo Products and providing Master Track Services to such Klaviyo Customer.
6.1.c. For the avoidance of doubt, Partner is solely responsible for remitting all taxes associated with any and all Fees paid to it under this Agreement. Partners may opt to forgo any eligible Fees by communicating in writing to Klaviyo, which will then be confirmed to Partner via email by Klaviyo. For the avoidance of doubt, Partners will still be eligible to receive Program Credit to contribute to their ongoing Tier evaluation as part of their participation in the Agency Partner Program. Any disputes related to any Fees hereunder must be submitted in writing to Klaviyo within sixty (60) days of release of payment with reasonable details describing the dispute.
6.2 Requirements for Payment; Forfeiture.
6.2.a. In order to receive the applicable Fees under this Agreement, Partner must have: (i) agreed to the terms of this Agreement (by checking the box when submitting an Agency Partner Program application and clicking on the “Submit” button); (ii) completed all information in Klaviyo’s account information form located in the Partner Portal following acceptance into the Agency Partner Program; and (iii) submitted to Klaviyo the required tax documents, banking account and any related information to process payments (collectively, the “Enrollment Criteria”). Klaviyo will pay Partner the Fees in U.S. dollars to the banking account as indicated by Partner via the Agency Partner Program registration process.
6.2.b. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if Klaviyo is unable to make a payment as a result of inaccurate or missing Enrollment Criteria provided by Partner and Partner fails to correct such payment information for three (3) months following Klaviyo’s first initial attempt to pay, Partner acknowledges and agrees that it forfeits any and all rights to receive any applicable Fees owed to Partner (each, a “Forfeited Transaction”). Klaviyo will have no obligation to pay Partner any Fees associated with a Forfeited Transaction. For the avoidance of doubt, Klaviyo reserves the right to withhold payment of any applicable Fees until such amount exceeds $200. If any balances remain outstanding for any Fees at the end of each calendar year, Klaviyo agrees to pay out the total balance of the Fees due to Partner. Klaviyo shall be eligible for the reimbursement of any fees or penalties incurred from trying to complete payment for any Fees due to a Partner.
6.3. Payment for Partner Program Tracks.
6.3.a. Influencer Track. Klaviyo shall pay to a Partner classified as an “Influencer Partner”, a percentage of such converted Qualified Referral’s monthly subscription fees during a (4)-month period, to be paid within forty-five (45) days after the end of each calendar quarter (the “One-Time Referral Fee”). In the event that the Qualified Referral cancels its subscription to the Klaviyo Products within the first four (4) months, Influencer Partner shall not be entitled to the One-Time Referral Fee.
6.3.b. Advisor Track. Klaviyo shall pay to a Partner classified as an “Advisor Partner”, any Referral Fees based on a percentage for their respective Tier of any converted Qualified Referral’s monthly subscription fees to the Klaviyo Products for the applicable referral calculation period, to be paid within forty-five (45) days after the end of each calendar quarter.
6.3.c. Master Track. Klaviyo shall pay to a Partner classified as a “Master Partner”: (i) Referral Fees based on a percentage for their respective Tier of any converted Qualified Referral’s monthly subscription fees for the Klaviyo Products for the applicable referral calculation period, to be paid within forty-five (45) days after the end of each calendar quarter; and if applicable (ii) Management Fees based on an annualized percentage of Klaviyo Customer payments received for all accounts actively managed by Partner. The payout percentage for each Management Fee a Masters Partner is eligible to receive, is determined by such Master Partner’s respective Tier status at the time of payment to Partner.
6.3.d. The percentages referred to in this Section 6.3 will be reflected in Partner’s Account in the Partner Portal. Other payment process details are set forth and described in the Partner Portal. Klaviyo reserves the right to modify the Fees or the payment terms at any time upon reasonable prior notice to Partner. Such notice will be provided by email or posting a notice on the Partner Portal. In the event of any disputes over Fees, Klaviyo’s determination will be final and binding.
6.4 Exclusions for Payment. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, Partner will not be entitled to any Fees or any other compensation on any subscription of a Klaviyo Product if: (a) such compensation is disallowed or limited by Applicable Laws; and/or (b) such applicable Klaviyo Customers are not in good standing on their accounts.
