    Question RevShare, CPA or Hybrid - What's your preferred Commission method?

    What's is your preferred Commission method and why?

    I've always taken Revshare, but looking at my stats and FTD's over the last 12 months, Revshare only just beat what i would have earned on CPA.

    I understand the disadvantages of CPA, but with CPA the income is more consistent month on month. Revshare I find is quite volatile, some good months and some bad months - which seem to equal out over the year.
    The downside of CPA is obviously when you pick up a whale, which i do, but even then the yearly averages are nearly the same between Revshare and CPA. I'm considering switching to CPA so income becomes more consistent,

    What do you do and why?



    Tried to create this as a poll but I don't seem to have access to the Tools to do so.

    If you beat with RS CPA in 12 months then your traffic is pretty high quality imho. Mine would never do that and still I stick with RS. RS starts to bring the real results = whales the 3rd year for my traffic.

    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

    If you want CPAs, and you work with some of the brands I work with, I'll pay you the CPAs to use my links and I'll keep them on RevShare

    Talk to me people! I will vacuum up that revenue gap with a big grin!

    Personally, I think it's revenue sharing. I think it is still very beneficial.

    I prefer hybrid deals. Than you have a bit of both. In theory, RS is the best of course, but in reality brands untag, cross-sell, close, go bankrupt, etc. That makes that it's better to get a part of the player value immediately after the first deposit.

    I prefer hybrids (same reasons as triple7), but I do work with a mix of all types of deals. Cpas are my least preferred and usually only opt to work on them in certain cases for example.. when the program has negative rollover and they won't budge about it.. or I'm not too sure about the company or casino brand. Plus nothing worse than seeing a large depositor come in and you're all set up on a cpa!

    For me it's rev share all the way, but I dont have mountains of new depositors every month. I'd feel sick if I took CPA on some of the players that have been earning me rev share for for almost 10 years. But then again, when a program screws you over and steals players, rev share is worthless.

    It's a rev share for me, although I'm open for all other options as well.

    Absolutely!

    But you'd want to at least offer an extra 10% of the CPA - you'd be offering a better deal than the affiliate program and you could build yourself an army of workers with little risk.

    RS all the way !!

    No doubt I will always choose a CPA and a revshare affiliate commission deal combined anytime over any other offer available, as it offers the features from both plans.

    We already had some topic like this. I prefer rev share, but sometimes, in my region, only CPA deals are available, so I work with them too.

    All the way up for Rs, with some details :

    - programs not too shave too big admin fees.

    - no tagging and untaggging of some players.

    - CPA hurts a lot when high rollers land with such deal to you

    - hybrid is good as long as program decides, that affiliate has become lazy over the years.

    Strong, established brands not likely to disappear in the near future: Rev Share
    New brands or small operators who may get swallowed up: CPA

    Although we have been strong with Rev Share we are moving more to hybrid, particularly for new programs. Unfortunately even though programs advertise they offer hybrid it is a real challenge to get one let alone a good deal.
