6.1 Mr Ringo agrees to pay the Affiliate a commission calculated on the net revenue generated from new customers referred by the Affiliate Website. The net revenue shall be calculated on the following formula:
Money Wagered - Player Winnings - Tax – Payment Charges – Bad Debts – Returned Stakes/Amounts – License Fees – Customer Incentives
The commission shall be a percentage of the net revenue in accordance with what is set out in the Commission Plan, displayed on the Affiliate Program Website.
Money wagered is the real money sums wagered by new customers and do not include any wagers that are subsequently voided, wagers that are not paid for (chargeback’s) or wagers made related to Customer Financial Incentives (e.g. bonus sums).
New customers are those customers of the Company who do not yet have a betting account and who access the website via the link placed on the Affiliate’s website(s) and who properly registers and makes real money transfers to their betting account.]
6.2 The commission is calculated at the end of each month and payment requests shall be performed by the [1st - 7th] of each calendar month, provided that the amount due exceeds [€50] ('Minimum Threshold'). If the balance due is less than the Minimum Threshold, it shall be carried over to the following month and shall be payable when it exceeds the Minimum Threshold. Payments shall be made approximately 15 to 20 calendar days upon payment request and given that commissions have been calculated.
6.3 In the calculation of Net Revenue, when a New Depositor account results in a negative balance for the Affiliate, due to New Depositor winnings and/or bonuses etc, the said balance will not be carried over to the next month. Any negative Net Revenue will be set to zero at the beginning of each month.
Bonus cost share: Affiliate will also be charged the 25% of the bonus that his players take. This means that if a player has received 100EUR bonus, the 25% (25EUR) will be deducted by the affiliate’s net revenue.
*Figures shown in the bonus section represent 25% of the total bonus cost.
i.e: if a partner has 100 EUR bonus cost in total, he will see 25 EUR allocated in his affiliate account.
**Bonus cost is deducted based on the assigned product, that the partner has revenue share commissions.
i.e: if a partner has only Sportsbook commission, then only SB bonus cost will be deducted from his monthly commissions.
***Sportsbook bonus data are shown in the Casino section (due to system/backoffice functionality). Calculations are processed according to relevant affiliate models and any adjustments will be done on a monthly basis, if deemed necessary.
Note: If a partner has only Sportsbook commission he will also have 0% commission for Casino product in his affiliate model, in order to be able to monitor his users' SB bonuses.
6.4 Payment of commissions shall be made as per the payment method chosen by the Affiliate in the application process. If an error is made in calculating the commission, the Company reserves the right to correct such calculation at any time and will immediately pay out underpayment or reclaim overpayment made to the Affiliate.
6.5 Acceptance of payment by the Affiliate shall be deemed to be full and final settlement of the Balance due for the period indicated.
6.6 If the Affiliate disagrees with the balance due as reported, it shall within a period of thirty (30) days send an email to the Company on and indicate the reasons of such dispute.
Failure to send an email within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed to be considered as an irrevocable acknowledgment of the Balance due for the period indicated.
6.7 Mr Ringo may delay payment of any Balance to the Affiliate for up to one hundred and eighty (180) days, while it investigates and verifies that the relevant transactions comply with the provisions of these terms and conditions.
6.8 No payment shall be due when the traffic generated is illegal or contravenes any provision of these terms and conditions.
6.9 The Affiliate agrees to return all commissions received based on fraudulent or falsified transactions, plus all costs for legal causes or actions that may be brought against the Affiliate to the fullest extent of the law.
6.10 Partners that use Skrill/Moneybookers as a method for their commissions' payment will be charged for the transaction fees (2%). Therefore the partner will finally receive his commission decreased by 2%. i.e if a partner is being paid 3.000EUR then the final amount that he will receive using Skrill will be 2.940EUR. This applies to all models of cooperation (flat fee, RS or mixed partners). This change applies for January 2015 commission/fees and on.
