Over $20,000.00 - - - earn 50.00%
Affiliates commission fees will be a percentage of the ‘Net Revenue’. iGamingPartners pays a commission fee on net revenue generated by the affiliate. An affiliate’s monthly payable balance is automatically reset to 0 Euros at the beginning of each calendar month, thus ensuring that any negative balances are not carried forward. Casino net revenue is calculated as Player bets minus player winnings minus player bonuses minus transaction fees and admin fees.
Transaction fees are the fees the different payment providers charge on the player´s deposits and withdrawals. No transaction fees are deducted from Revenue Share. Admin fees are the fees covering the cost of handling the gaming customer. This includes for example finance, risk surveillance and game software licensing. This fee is set to 22%.
Affiliates are expected to actively promote one or more brands and as such they are expected to fulfil minimum requirements in terms of player recruitment. For an affiliate to maintain their current revenue share level, they must sign up at least 5 new depositing customers every month. Affiliates who are not able to sign up a minimum of 5 new depositing customers within one calender month will revert to the next lowest revenue share level. Should an affiliate fail to bring in minimum 5 new depositing customers throughout several months in a row then the affiliate will revert to the lowest revenue share level of 30%.
As of 2015, iGamingPartners and it's associated casino brands do not offer any kind of CPA agreements. This includes CPA only and/or hybrid revenue models.
Any commissions which have been accumulated and/or rolled over and which remain unpaid because the affiliate has failed to provide a valid payment method, will be forfeit at the end of each quarter and the affiliate commissions balance will reset to 0 (zero). We will attempt to the best of our abilities to communicate with the affiliate using the contact details provided in the account details section to remind him/her to provide a valid payment method so we can pay the commissions before the end of each quarter. It is the affiliate's resposibility to ensure that personal, contact and payment methohd details are valid, accurate and up to date in our affiliate admin tool.
