administrate the turnover generated through Affiliates Links, records the commission amounts earned through these links and provide customer service for the customers who enter the Websites through these Affiliates Links;
pay the Affiliate on a monthly basis depending on the traffic generated subject to these T&C.
5. Payment Terms
The Company agrees to pay the Affiliate a commission which is calculated on the Net Revenue Share which is generated from the Affiliate Website or through other marketing channels. A New depositing Customer is a customer who doesn’t have an account at the particular brand they are registering into, registers an account through an Affiliate Link and makes a real money deposit to the Brands gaming account. Commission includes VAT (value added tax) or any other tax if applicable.
The commission is a percentage of the Net Revenue Share in accordance with what is set out in the commission structures. The net revenue calculation is product specific, and all brands are combined in calculating final commission due.
The commission is calculated at the end of each month and payments will be paid out by the last day of the following month of each calendar month, provided that the amount due exceeds €100 for Bank Wires and €100 for Skrill. If the commission is less than the minimum requirement for the payout, it will be carried towards the following month until the minimum payment amount is exceeded.
Payment of commissions shall be made as per the payment method chosen by the Affiliate in the Affiliate’s account. If payment method cannot be used for any reason (for instance the bank account doesn’t exist anymore), that month’s payment will move automatically to the following month). If an error is made in calculating the commission, the Company reserves the right to correct such calculation at any time and will immediately pay out underpayment or reclaim overpayment made to the Affiliate. We will only process Bank Wire payments to banks located within the EEA area.
Acceptance of payment by the Affiliate shall be deemed to be full and final settlement of the balance due for the period indicated.
If the Affiliate disagrees with the balance due as reported, it shall within a period of thirty (30) days send an email to the Company on affiliates@AFFMore.com and indicate the reasons for such dispute. Failure to send an email within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed to be considered as an irrevocable acknowledgment of the balance due for the period indicated.
The Company may delay payment of any balance to the Affiliate for up to one hundred and eighty (180) days, while it investigates and verifies that the relevant transactions comply with the provisions of these T & Cs.
No payment shall be due when the traffic generated is illegal or contravenes any provision of these T & Cs.
Any commission that is generated by users that have been self-excluded will be de-tracked from the respective partner and no commission shall be paid to the partner for the respective users’ activity.
For the sake of clarity the parties specifically agree that upon termination of this Agreement by either party, the Affiliate shall no longer be entitled to receive any payment whatsoever from the Company, provided that payments already due (earned and unpaid commissions) shall be paid out.
At the sole discretion of the Company the Affiliate may be provided with the opportunity to restructure its revenue structure. Examples of alternative revenue sources could include a CPA, Fixed fee (certain time period) or a Hybrid (any combination of these). Therefore once an Affiliate opts to accept the Company’s offer for a different revenue structure to the standard Commission Structure detailed in this Agreement, then the Affiliate is aware and hereby agrees and understands that the new proposed revenue structure shall replace his/her existing commission structure from the commissions change date of onwards. Notwithstanding the above, all the Affiliate’s obligations assumed under this present Agreement will still continue to apply to the Affiliate up until the termination of this Agreement and thereafter in accordance with the T&Cs contained in this Agreement.
The Affiliate shall be exclusively responsible for the payment of any and all taxes, levies, fees, charges and any other money payable or due both locally and abroad (if any) to any tax authority, department or other competent entity by the Affiliate as a result of the revenue generated under this Agreement, unless the taxes are automatically deducted from the players revenues by the company. The Company shall in no manner whatsoever be held liable for any amounts unpaid but found to be due by the Affiliate and the Affiliate hereby indemnifies the Company in that regard.
High Rollers: If in any given calendar month, a Player from any Affiliate generates negative commissionable revenue of at least twenty thousand Euro (€20,000) then such Player shall be deemed to be a high roller (“High roller(s)”).
In calculating Commission for High Rollers; where commission earned by an Affiliate in relation to a High Roller(s) results in a negative amount in any calendar month then the Company shall have the right to carry forward any such negative amounts and the negative amounts will be applicable to and set off against any future commission payable to the Affiliate in relation to the High Roller(s) until the negative balance has been fully set off against future positive commission.
If any High Roller(s) has a negative commissionable revenue in excess of twenty thousand Euro (€20,000) in the last calendar month prior to the current unbilled calendar month then this negative commissionable revenue will be considered as negative carryover and used to calculate Commission for the current unbilled calendar month.
Provided that We have the right to exclude any and all High Rollers from an Affiliate Account at the Our sole discretion.
Provided further that all commission periods start from 0. There is no negative commission carryover between the commission periods. Commission period is always a full calendar month.
5.2 Commission Structure:
Commissions are paid out as a percentage of the NET Revenue Share. Net revenue is calculated as:
Net Revenue = Bets – Wins – 25% Admin Fee (Game provider fees (incl. branded game fees), Transaction Costs, Chargebacks, Jackpot Contribution fees) – Taxes (where applicable) – Bonus costs.
Whereof the Admin Fee is a value which contains the License Fee, Game Provider Fee and Platform Fee and Jackpot games contribution cost.
The Net Revenue Share percentage is determined by the amount of new depositing customers referred by the Affiliate within the month the commission is paid for.
Number of New Depositing Customers
Affiliate Net Revenue Share
The amount of commission earned when reaching a tier will apply to all customers, also those referred to reach that tier.
Bonuses in this case means Paid Bonuses to the customer, not Granted Bonuses. The difference is that a Paid Bonus is a type of bonus money where the customer has actually reached the wagering requirement and/or physically received the funds in his real money wallet

The payment of the Penalty shall be without prejudice to Our right to claim compensation for any damage (including without limitation any indirect or consequential damage, loss of profits or any expenses incurred in relation to the breach or threatened breach) that exceeds the Penalty, which right shall not be affected nor limited by the payment of the Penalty. Furthermore, without prejudice to the Penalty, We shall be entitled to seek any equitable relief as a remedy for such breach, including injunctive relief concerning any threatened or actual breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement as well as any direct violation thereof.
