Revenue Share commission structure
New Affiliates start with a 30% Revenue Share that will be increased to a 35% Revenue Share after bringing 50 depositors or more. This percentage is increased to a 40% once affiliate brings 200 depositors or more.
|Total Depositors||Revenue Share Percentage|
|Up to 50||30%|
|50+ up to 200||35%|
The potential to earn 40% for the lifetime of a player allows you to make the most from month to month with the added value of a "no negative balance carryover". At the end of each month, if your net revenue is negative we'll wipe that clean and start fresh next month.
CPA (Cost per Acquisition) commission structure
ReferCasino Affiliate Program offers a CPA affiliate commission structure. We are happy to discuss and review CPA deals with affiliates who can deliver regular players on a daily basis and who have at least 3 months of constant activity. Please contact our affiliate manager if this is something that you may be interested in. Please keep in mind that all new account activations are Revenue Share by default.
This is considered a 2-Tier model (Multi-Tier Program) that works by increasing the actual affiliate network. This one is defined as a new registered affiliate that has been directed to the program by a currently active affiliate. When you refer affiliates to ReferCasino Affiliates, you will earn 5% of their Net Profit. (Net Profit = Casino Profit - Bonus given - Charge backs).
To cap it all off, we're more than happy to give you a little extra for referring other affiliates. Any earning affiliates that you refer, that earn money with our program will net you 5% of their earnings.
The more affiliates and players you refer the more cash you earn.
