Schedule A

Agent Compensation

This Agent Compensation Schedule sets out the terms of payment of Compensation under the Agreement (the “Agreement”). In the event of any discrepancy between the terms of this Schedule and the Agreement, the Agreement shall prevail. Agents may be paid Compensation in Four forms: a One-Time Lump Sum Compensation, Ongoing Compensation, a One Time Renewal Compensation and processing residual commission as detailed below. Compensation is subject to change when changes are made by Chrome to the Program. Changes to the program may be made in Chrome sole discretion, with notice in writing. 

Agent shall be paid its One-Time Lump Sum Compensation in respect of a Merchant within 7 business days after the purchase price for the purchased amount is paid by Chrome to the Merchant (provided the Merchant is still processing with one of Chrome approved processors and is forwarding Chrome all amounts due).

If a Merchant referred by Independent Sales Organization defaults under its Merchant Agreement within the first 30 business days after funding, the Independent Sales Organization shall immediately return to Chrome the One-Time Lump Sum Compensation (as defined in Schedule A) paid to Independent Sales Organization with respect to such Merchant (and, if Independent Sales Organization fails to do so, then without limiting Independent Sales Organizations obligation to represent such amounts or any other rights of Chrome, Chrome may set off the amount of such One-Time Lump Sum Compensation against other amounts due to Independent Sales Organization hereunder or any other agreement). In the event that a Merchant terminates or is in default of its obligations under a Merchant Agreement, no Ongoing Compensation shall be paid in respect of such Merchant.

All compensation is based on the funded amount of the cash advance.

New Merchant:          Per Grid in Approval email

Renewal:                    Same (minus any monthly bonuses/promotions)
