    I think affiliates will suffer but the fees they charge for the pleasure of promoting their brand have been highlighted on this forum.

    PaddyPartners are as bad as Affiliatehub in terms of how they treat their affiliates imo.

    Gooner did a fantastic post stating the Paddy Power deductions were up to 86% (I cant find it now), based on the deductions that did 'accidentally' appear within the system at various points. If he is right - and I was persuaded that he was spot on - then PP are bigger thieves than 138.com.

    Here is TheGooner's post I was referring to (yes 86% deductions):

    Here is our trend there ...
    2012 - 2400 per month.
    2013 - 1800 per month.
    2014 - 1000 per month.
    2015 - 900 per month.

    Last month (Dec 2015) was worth 1300 GBP


    Just to refresh minds - when someone reported that fees were being reported online - I did a quick pull of 12 months data (Jun 2014 to May 2015) in the short time it was available.

    This showed a gross revenue of 105,298 GBP, less fees and charges 90,067 to leave 15,231 net revenue.
    That's right - fees and charges levied against the affiliate was a whopping 86% of the total profit!!

    I attempted to discuss with their affiliate team - but while I got some help on the shop floor (AM contact) that was ended when their "Head of Affiliates" emailed saying this was too time consuming and they had more important things to do.

    Clearly a discussion regarding the level of fees and exact nature of fees, and having transparency with their affiliate partners was not deemed a worthwhile task.

    It is on this thread:

    It's amazing ! and a big shame... that's explains why earnings cut to 0 almost 2 years ago... seen 0 commission and not significant affiliate communication for several years

    Every time you talk to one of their AM's they blame you for the player value being so low and when you ask them what the fee's are they play dumb.

    Its just so disheartening after working so hard in getting them a large number of signups over the years and now I'm being completely screwed over without any transparency or contact from them regarding the fees.

    This is great, they're definitely reducing a level of unemployment in these countries

    LOL after more than 2 years of no communication I get an email terminating my account. Obviously they don’t like paying residual income to players you have bought over the years. This program has definitely gone downhill over the years with the lack of any communication and things must be getting pretty desperate to try to save on costs as much as they can since the merger.

    Programs like these don’t realise that actions like this does not do them any favours when trying to encourage new affiliates to join up.

    I have another one. Everytime some random Am talks to me, he says value of players is ok, but conversion rate is too low. Now it is obvious they merged into the worse of the two. I am just expecting some steals from Betfair account.
    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own
