    Default Videoslots have started with a minimum quota?

    I read over at AGD that Videoslots have snuck in a paragraph about minimum quotas for affiliate's accounts to be active. Anybody got a notice about this T&C change?

    They really want to go the rogue way..

    I have joined Videolost couple of years ago and then tried to search what there is on the forums for them.

    Never -ever promoted them.

    Thx for the information shared @555.

    There are plenty of threads going both here and at AGD on Videoslots and their woeful actual commission paid compared to their advertised rate.

    To add in quotas is just taking it to another level. I am like drifter8 I signed up but have never promoted thankfully as I did spot what was going on because of being on the forums.

    6.5 The Company reserves the right to reject/reduce the Affiliate’s Commission/change the Reward Plan if:
    (1) The Affiliate substantially reduces its efforts to promote the Company, except in markets where affiliate activity is restricted (e.g. Netherlands), and/or (2) the existing Reward Plan results in a financial loss to the Company, and/or
    (3) the Affiliate does not generate a minimum of 6 New Depositing Customers in a period of 3 months, except in markets where affiliate activity is restricted (e.g. Netherlands), and/or
    (4) in the event of legal/regulatory changes to a market.
    How nice! Can anyone from Videoslots justify why that paragraph is in place (together with the clause of 1 NDC per 6months or termination)? Are these terms imposed on already signed up affiliates or only the new ones signing up now?

    Seems like theft to me..

    Have been working with VS more than 2 years now. Great product for us. But they definitely they lack diligence and passion on their service level - any stats/tech/legal issue takes ages to be resolved.. re above changes, thanks for heads up - we work on CPA thankfully.. There are many programs that put that weird clause about min. FTDs per month, we usually renegotiate it from the very start.

    I've worked lightly with them in the past but as we expand I won't be adding them anymore. How do affiliate firms think it's a good thing for long term success

    Sure thing, no one is 100% protected from screw-up... at least we try to mitigate the nightmares you are referring: so far so good (knocking the wood).

    It is useless as knocking the wood. Once you accumulate the playerbase, the deals you made will not be worth of the paper they are on.

    Can be true for RS.. for CPA setups (like us) - not much to regret.
    IMHO: many things rest on relationship you build with counterpart - the more adequate it is - the less stress you have when things start to worsen.

    With CPA you do not need any deals. Max you lose is one month. But you will make maybe 10% of what you can with rev share. If I had to work with CPA I would never made decent money. There are programs where average value of player is mid to high thousands. Gl asking for CPA on that level. Affiliate marketing as any business is about embracing the stress.

    You are in industry probably just few years, so you ... are very naive. Ok, I was the same. As Siddhartha said experience is non-transferable. So you will get your lesson (not on CPA where you will be picking up just leftovers).

    Care to name a casino that has average player values in the mid thousands?

    Despite that my account has now reached 182.00 GBP over a couple of years time, they refuse to pay me due to their dodgy terms & conditions.

    This is their reply of today:
    Our management and developers have unfortunately not paid you due to inactivity according to our terms and conditions. These states that you will need to bring in at least 6 players in 3 months to get paid. So what we can really do about this, is for you to start up again and hopefully work more with us to get more players - after which we will be able to send your payment.

    I have never really trusted them and that's why I have never sent them customers. I just wanted to "test" them.

    My advice is to keep away from Videslots.com

    We have been working with Videoslots for a few years and very successful and no issues. There are many other programs out there that are not worth the effort due to their T&C's.

    A written contract helps IF you are ready to take it to court. A lot of these scumbag-affiliate programs knows that most affiliates won't do anything else than maybe complain on a forum.
