    Default IPS Affiliates - Don't Pay on UK Customers

    Saw this thread over on AGD and wanted you to be aware, these guys don't pay commission on UK players even though they accept them: http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/com...tes-com.10503/

    For the record I don't work with them (and never will now), but don't want anyone here to get their fingers burnt.

    I had a quick look at the other thread and their arguments are ridiculous.

    The reason why we don't pay for UK traffic on those sites is simply because we are heavily marketing those players ourselves within the UK.
    As long as we don't keep a secret about the non-payment of UK traffic, I can't see this being a problem.
    What happens if they decide to run a marketing campaign in another country? Are they going to stop paying affiliates for players in those countries due to expensive marketing campaigns?

    Thanks for the warning.
    I do not know about that affiliation.

    Hi everyone,


    we feel like the title could be misleading to some extent, as we are paying for UK traffic.


    We have 20 sites to promote available, of which 3 are being talked about in this tread and the one in Affiliate Guard Dog.
    We accept a wide range of different territories on those sites, for which we pay whatever has been agreed with our affiliates. If an affiliate chooses to promote one of them, we make sure they are aware of the UK non-payment rules. As some sites have traffic from different countries they have no problem to market them.
    Once someone voices interest in our programme we seek contact and speak to them about which brands they would like to promote, to make sure that it fits their traffic as well.


    We can only stress again, that on all other casino and bingo sites we pay on UK traffic.


    If you have any further questions, we are more than happy to help and answer them.


    Sandra

    What sites do you not pay for UK players on?

    It's pay enough that your advertised 35% rev share is actually more like 20% of gross, but now you don't even need to pay 1% for UK players? Unbelievable.

    So actually you don't care for hardworking affiliates that provide quality SEO traffic. Your company assumes that the TV traffic converts better and is more valuable than dedicated long tail keyword traffic generated via affiliates right? So someone ranking high on slots is not entitled commission for that as it might be your tv ad that made a potential player search for "slots" not?

    Or maybe your company goes for the "safe bets" by investing marketing budget in regulated countries and has no problem that the affiliate takes the risk in "grey/black markets". That way you can always play the role of "the innocent" towards regulators...

    Either way probably not the most convenient way to built a long term relationship with valuable partners. I'd pass!
