    Default 888 Affiliates(A very big name but be careful)

    Hi Guys,

    we thought it is time to share our experience with 888 Affiliates.

    We never was interested to work with 888 together, because they are not able to offer any good rev share deal. After one affiliate manager contacted us, we decided to give it a try with a CPA Deal.

    Like we do it with every new partner, we ask some people wich we know very good, to open an account there, to play a bit, check the software, how long withdrawals need, quality of the costumer service and the most important if the tracking links works as it must be.

    We asked two players to sign up. And they know how to sign up correctly and surprise surprise, both players are not tagged. Of course, we would never notice it, if we do not know this guys who signed up as a test.

    We complaint it and now the funny story started:

    17.January: We complaint that there must be a issues with the tracking link
    23.January: We received the information that this two players did not use a tracking link and thats why they are not tagged. It is absolute impossible but ok. Players will be retagged.
    24.January: The answer to the question if the players are retagged was that it will be done next week. Make no sense, because why not to do it right now and wait one week...
    30.January: Next information was that it is done now and we will see this two players in two day in the panel.
    01. February: Still nothing and the information that we will see this two players tomorrow in the panel
    21.February: Still nothing happaned and the next information was that the last month panel update was closed when the players got retagged and thats why we can not see them. What to say......
    25.February: We have sent a request why we did not get our CPA commission paid for one player, if he is tagged correctly and reached conditions. Info was nobody know, it need to be checked.
    28.February: Still no answer. What is so hard to check......?
    01.March: Still no answer.....
    07.March: Still no answer. We got the information only the analyst can do it and he was sick at home and need a bit time. Is this a joke? It takes less then 5min to check a player and add the commission the payouts.
    18.March: The information that it happened also with other affiliates and players. The data technical team is still on it.

    Almost 3 month are gone with many different and funny explanations. And this all because of 200$? That make no sense at all. The problem are for sure not the 200$, so i have no explanation what is wrong with 888. But this story is so unbelievable that nobody of our team would believe it, if we did not see it with our own eyes. We also had almost 10 registrations of players, but the panel showed no deposit or anything else. Possible of course, so i do not want to say anything about it. But a bit strange that not even 1 made a deposit.

    They still asked us to promote them and bring traffic. Of course we told them that we will bring no traffic until that is solved. Nothing has changed so far and it will not. Nobody knows how many players signed up over an affiliate, not tagged and the affiliate even do not notice it.

    Maybe some other affiliates have another experience, or they just do not notice different things. I have no explanation for this all. It can of course always something happen, technical issues with the tracking links or whatever. But how big is the chance that we ask two players to sign up as a test and both are not tagged? This would even not the problem and if it would be solved, we would ask another guy to make one more test and if it would work fine, we would bring traffic.

    The main problem is that we got 3 months long different strange explanations and still nothing is solved. How it is possible to bring even one player to such a partner? Trust is the most important in our business and the people an companies who work really serious and who you can trust, become less and less!

    We informed our account manager that 888 can close our affiliate account and can keep the 200$ It is sad, because they changed the deals for the german market and we could make some nice money together. It is as it is.

    If you work with 888 guys, or if you plan to do it, i just can advise to take a look if all works so as it must be.

    This forum has had loads of threads over the years about how dishonest 888 are. You want to be careful of all programs run out of that part of the world.
