Club Partner Rebate Program
Terms of Service
By signing up to be a program affiliate (“partner club” or “partner” or “club”) in the RibbonSport Club Partner Program (“Program”), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”). RibbonSport reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Program, including the release of new online tools and club resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Program after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at ribbon.moderndesignmedia.net.
RibbonSport designs and sells casual apparel for girls, teens, and women in gymnastics, cheer, dance, rhythmic and other sports. RibbonSport partners with gyms and clubs. When athletes, parents, or club members buy clothes or other purchases at RibbonSport.com, partners receive rebates on the sales.
Samples Kits (Four per Year)
RibbonSport sends partners sample kits of fun clothes periodically during year (“sample kits” or “samples” or “kits”). The samples kits contain professionally packaged samples of new clothes intended for use by athletes, coaches or others in the partner clubs (“club members”). These packages are sent seasonally throughout the year. The current schedule is four times per year; this frequency is subject to change without notice. The samples kits are organized around times like back-to-school, holidays, or springtime/competition season.
Showing Clothes to Club Members
A partner club agrees that a club owner, coach, pro shop, or booster club rep will show the clothes samples to club members to help them decide what items they want to purchase. The methods of presenting the clothes to club members will be at the discretion of the club. However, RibbonSport will provide suggested approaches such as a series of brief after-class trunk shows covering most relevant club members coupled with the distribution of item checklists for use by club members. RibbonSport will suggest approaches which help increase club members’ fun and excitement and interest in the clothes. RibbonSport strongly suggests but does not mandate the use of these approaches in order to help partner clubs maximize their program success.
Online Ordering with Club Code
Club members, parents or others place orders for clothes online at ribbon.moderndesignmedia.net. RibbonSport will provide each partner club a unique order tracking code (“club code” or “gym code”). During a transaction the buyer will enter both a club name as well as a club code. RibbonSport uses the club code or name to track which orders are associated with each specific partner club. Either the code or club name is sufficient for tracking in the event that an online customer forgets or does not have access to the code. RibbonSport ships clothes or other online purchases directly to club members or other ordering customers. Club partners are not required to take orders, process payments, maintain inventory, or distribute purchased items.
Rebates to Partner Clubs
RibbonSport give rebates to partner clubs based on the orders its club members make. Rebates are calculated based on the total revenue associated with a club for each sample kit not including taxes or shipping and net of returns. The rebate schedule is as follows:
Sales from Sample Kit Club Partner Rebate
under $2000 20% of total sales
$2000-4000 25% of total sales
over $4000 30% of total sales
Revenue associated with a club is calculated separately for each sample kit during the year.
Timing for Ordering
For each kit RibbonSport sends to clubs, there will be a cutoff date by which orders related to that kit must be placed by club members in order for the club to receive credit for the revenue in the rebate calculation. The time from when sample kits are shipped to the cutoff date is termed the ordering cycle for the kit (“ordering cycle”). For example, suppose a kit for Christmas/Holidays were shipped to a club on November 15 and orders from club members for that kit needed to be placed online by December 15 (example only) to be included in the club’s rebate calculation for that kit. In that example, the ordering cycle would be November 15 to December 15. The dates and ordering cycle duration will be unique for each kit, but this might typically be four to six weeks.
Timing of Rebate Payment to Clubs
When the ordering cycle for a kit is closed, RibbonSport will calculate for a club partner the rebate to which the club is entitled. RibbonSport will provide the club a detailed report on all purchases associated with club during the ordering cycle so the club will have a thorough understanding of how rebates are calculated. RibbonSport will provide rebate payment to a club partner within four weeks of the close of an ordering cycle. Rebate payments from RibbonSport to a club partner will be made via check payable to gym, club, or booster organization registered as the RibbonSport partner, unless other custom arrangements are made with RibbonSport.
Samples kits are provided to clubs free of charge. Samples must be returned in good condition to RibbonSport within one week of the close of an ordering cycle. RibbonSport provides a shipping label for the return shipment. If a club wishes to keep the samples, the club must inform RibbonSport at the close of the ordering cycle. The club will be permitted to keep the samples from a kit for 60% of the current retail price. This total price for the all samples kept by the club will be deducted from the club’s rebate for that ordering cycle. If more than one sample kit is sent to a club in a given ordering cycle, samples may be kept from up to two kits, and all other samples must be returned.
