Live Partners is a casino affiliate program that markets two leading online casinos with a live dealer focus: Casino 777 and NetBet Casino. Both sites also feature an extensive range of games from IGT, NetEnt, iSoftBet, and more. The brand was created in 2001 and accepts players from most parts of the world except the United States. Live Partners is governed by the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom.
Affiliates of live partners have their choice of two commission schemes: revenue sharing or CPA (cost-per-acquisition).
Those under the default revenue sharing scheme are paid commission based on the net revenue accrued from referred players. Each month, the percentage paid the affiliate will be based on how much net revenue their players brought in. Higher revenue tiers yield a higher percentage as commission for the affiliate.
This revenue sharing scheme does have negative carryover. This means that, if players win more than they lose in a month, that balance will be carried forward and applied to future earnings. This can reduce the potential profitability of the agreement. However, there is no bundling, so negative earnings at one casino do not offset positive earnings at another in a particular month.
Those who choose the CPA plan are instead paid a one-time fee for each qualifying new depositor. In order for a player to be considered qualified, he or she must meet both deposit and wagering criteria. He or she must also have his or her account verified. Amounts differ across the various gaming products, but all CPA commissions are tiered, resulting in higher commissions for affiliates who bring in more players within a month.
Affiliates of Live Partners do not have access to any form of sub-affiliation plan at this time.
Live Partners pays all qualifying affiliates within the first 15 days of each month. For most payment methods, an affiliate only needs to have €/£50 in accrued earnings to be eligible for a payout. If an affiliate does not reach this threshold, his or her earnings will be carried forward until he or she does meet the requirement. No admin fee is deducted from commissions.
Available payment methods are diverse. They include Neteller, Skrill, Entropay, PayPal, WebMoney, and payment to a participating casino brand player account. Bank wire transfers are also available, but affiliates must reach a higher €/£250 threshold to be eligible for one. All payments can be sent in either euros or British pounds sterling.
Live Partners is powered by a proprietary software platform with a well-rounded selection of features. These include a multitude of different reports, a convenient dashboard for tracking statistics, and integrated promotional materials and commissions.
