During the term of this Program, and subject to the terms of this Agreement, Participants who have an active FedEx account in good standing may receive, following enrollment in this program, discounts for a period of 9 weeks (the "Introductory Period"):
(a) a 22% discount ("Discount") off of the FedEx list prices in effect on the date of shipment, as published by FedEx from time to time, on shipments sent by Participants via eligible FedEx Express services and processed through FedEx® electronic shipping solutions.

(b) a 9% discount ("Discount") each off of the FedEx list prices in effect on the date of shipment, as published by FedEx from time to time, on shipments sent by Participants via eligible FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery services. Eligible FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery services ("Eligible FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery Services") are: FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery for shipments having an origin and destination solely within the United States. The discount is only eligible in Zones 2,3,4,5,6,7, and 8. Only U.S. based payors may be Participants. Eligible FedEx Express Services and Eligible FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery Services are collectively referred to as the "Eligible Services".

Only U.S. based payors may be Participants. Eligible FedEx Express Services and Eligible FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery Services are collectively referred to as the "Eligible Services".
(d) Introductory Period – Following enrollment in this program, Participant shall receive the above mentioned discounts for a period of 9 weeks. Discounts apply to rates as per the FedEx Service Guide in effect on the date of shipment. Discounts do not apply to ancillary service fees, surcharges, special handling fees or other charges.
(e) Earned Discounts & Calculation – At conclusion of the 9 week introductory Period, my discounts will be determined based on Participant's actual shipping activity as follows:
Participant's base transportation charges (annualized) will be calculated weekly to determine the participants discount, from the table below, for the following week. Participant's annualized charges shall be based on a 52-week frequency. Beginning with the shipments during the last week of the introductory period, the participant's cumulative base transportation charges will be divided by the corresponding number of weeks and then multiplied by 52. After 52 weeks, the base transportation charges for the most recent 52 weeks will be used. In order for a shipment to count towards Participant's earned discount threshold or to receive an applicable earned discount, the shipment must be billed to a FedEx account number that is eligible for earned discounts, and, if an automation device is used, shipped from an earned discount compatible automation device. Participant shall not be entitled to invoice adjustments for earned discounts for use of account numbers or automation devices that are not eligible for earned discounts.
(f) Service Groupings used in the Earned Discount Calculation: For each of the Service Groupings below, revenue will be combined from U.S. payer accounts for all applicable billing options (Outbound, Inbound, Third Party and Recipient Bill):
International Express: International Express revenue includes U.S. Export, U.S. Import, Non-U.S. Origin International, Puerto Rico Southbound, Puerto Rico Northbound shipments, Priority Direct Distribution and International Mail Service billed to the account numbers identified herein.

If Customer elects to accept the Discount described in this Agreement, no other FedEx discount will be applied to any FedEx shipments made by Participant through FedEx® electronic shipping solutions. With the exception of certain custom freight pricing agreements, the pricing in this Program will supersede any pre-existing pricing or agreement with FedEx, which means that any kind of FedEx discounts, including but not limited to, any earned or bonus discounts, or any surcharge waiver or other waivers, any custom shipment weight minimum, or any custom Dimensional Weight factor, will be terminated and the new discount Program will apply.
(b) Customers whose accounts have a status of Cash Only or Inactive, all as determined by FedEx in its sole discretion, are not eligible to participate in the Program. FedEx does not extend consumer credit, and FedEx's standard credit policies as determined by FedEx from time to time shall apply.

Only FedEx Account Numbers that are eligible (as determined by FedEx in its sole discretion) may participate in the Program.
(c) All requests for account numbers are subject to credit investigation and verification by our Credit Department and Customer Account Confirmation Department. FedEx utilizes business credit reporting agencies, audited financial statements, Standard & Poor's and Moody's bond ratings, and other sources as necessary, to determine eligibility for open credit terms.
(d) Failure to keep your FedEx account current may result in your account being placed on a cash-only status. This status may impair your ability to use our services, delay your shipments, and may result in the loss of any applicable discounts. Credit privileges will not be restored until you have paid all past-due balances in full and all costs, fees and expenses incurred by FedEx in collecting or attempting to collect such balances. FedEx may require establishment of electronic funds transfer as a prerequisite to credit restoration. FedEx may decline to restore credit privileges even if all costs, fees and expenses are paid. Customers requesting removal from cash only status must contact Revenue Collections department at 1.800.506.7580.

Ground minimums may apply for FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery shipments.
