Educational Providers may also offer Custom Listings to Parent/Students in addition to their Listings. Each Listing you sell and successfully complete, accredits your account with a revenue equal to 80% of the purchase amount. OWL Home Education Network accredits Educational Providers once an order is completed. See our "Orders" section below for a definition of a completed order. For more information about receiving payments, fees and taxes see the Payment Terms. Educational Providers may promote their Listings via the Google Ads platform. The Educational Provider's rating is calculated based on the order reviews posted by Parent/Students or Business Account Team Members. In certain cases, exceedingly low ratings may lead to the suspension of the Educational Provider’s account. For security concerns, OWL Home Education Network may temporarily disable an Educational Provider’s ability to withdraw revenue to prevent fraudulent or illicit activity. This may come as a result of security issues, improper behavior reported by other users, or associating multiple OWL Home Education Network accounts to a single withdrawal provider.
