3. Order Processing
We will process Product orders placed by customers who follow Special Links from your site to the Abelestore.com Site.

We will pay you (in accordance with Sections 5 and 6 below) referral fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link on your site to the Abelestore.com Site and during a single session, add the Product to his or her shopping cart.
