Q

What happens in case of negative revenues as per Casino activity?

A

There is no negative balance carryover. Any negative balances are reset to zero at the start each month. When a player wins money at an online casino, they generate negative revenue, which translates into negative commissions for affiliates. Betfair does not carryover this negative balance and resets an affiliate's commission balance to zero at the beginning of the next month. The account will start fresh and affiliates can profit from their promotional efforts, disregarding any previous negative balance.

Q

What happens when Betfair adds new products, do I still earn commission from them?

A

Yes you do. However, commission is only calculated for customers who have registered on or after the date that the new product has been launched.

Q

What Products form the Betfair Games Affiliate Programme?

A

Our Games Product is made up of Arcade, Exchange Games and Sports Multiples.

Sports Multiples is included in Games because its revenue is calculated on Profit & Loss – for full details on how “Net Multiples Winnings” are defined please visit our affiliate terms page.
