    Default "Affiliate Edge stealing commissions by detagging players"

    Although I have no bullit proof evidence but I sure can see a major drop in deposits beginning in October 2016.

    The new owners apparently are the former rogue Affpower team that worked together with hackers and what not.

    • Not agreeing with the new management style/techniques
    • The huge rise in complaints
    • My own personal/business ethics

    No proofs of evidence for me too. But... I can see a huge drop in deposits starting in September 2016.
    Maybe "seasonal traffic/income" (?), players stopped playing... but if 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 it's starting to look quite suspicious...

    Thank you for your posts. We are aware of the current situation regarding AE. We are working on independently verifying the various claims. We will act accordingly after that.
    Affiliates - Here are four ways to become involved in GPWA to truly make the association your own:
    Apply for Private Membership | Apply for the GPWA Seal | Partner with a GPWA Sponsor | Volunteer as a Moderator

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Gambling World | Online Roulette | Online Blackjack | Live Online Games | Sports Betting | Horse Racing | Football Betting World
    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly! - for Universal4!

    straight from the horses mouth :

    AE new T&C :
    Affiliates who send 5 FTD's or less over a 2 calendar month period collectively will be marked as 'non active' and will be reduced to 10% default commission.
    good luck getting paid while taking your banners down !

    It looks like Affiliate Edge is now well on its way to joining other affiliate programs who tried to screw their affiliates, but ultimately ended up screwing themselves.

    I'm completely sure they will sort themselves out without any doubts.

    What on earth makes you think that? All I see is plenty of signs that they are:
    - de-tagging players from aff accounts
    - shaving/lowering commissions without notice
    - changing terms and conditions without notice
    - 'trusted' staff has resigned and no announcement of whoever is running the place

    What do you do when you catch a pickpocket red handed? Just ask him nicely to put your wallet back in your pocket and pretend nothing happened, maybe even have a beer together?

    Even if they would 'sort them selves out', they've lost my trust. I've been in this industry long enough to just write it off, take my loss and move on. I don't have time for clowns.
    IHMO this business is based on trust and you only get one chance (at least with me).

    I've been distracted from the usual term checks I do for the last few weeks due to an ongoing project, but I'm just working my way through the backlog now. Given the situation with Affiliate Edge I felt this change should be flagged up on GPWA for the membership and management team.

    Below you'll find a screen capture of a term change that occurred on the 13th of March 2017. This change specifically removes wording within the contract that stipulates that players will be tagged to the affiliate's account for the lifetime of the player. Given the ongoing issue it seems a highly specific, even surgical, change to make and relevant in as far as it lends significant support to those affiliates claiming that players have been detagged from their accounts:
