Matchbook Affiliates is the official casino affiliate program of the Matchbook brand, a major online sports betting company. Their focus is exclusively on marketing Matchbook Casino, a sportsbook and online casino founded in 2004. Although the site was founded in the United States, it was taken over by a UK-based company in 2011 and no longer accepts US players. Matchbook Affiliates is under the jurisdiction of Alderney.
Those participating in the Matchbook Affiliates program receive a commission based on net revenue share. It’s important to note that “revenue” means commissions paid by referred players to bet, rather than profit or loss. This ensures that gross revenue is always positive. Net revenue is then calculated by subtracting fraudulent transactions, promotional expenses, and other fees.
Matchbook Affiliates pays affiliates under a three-tiered “Commission for Life” program. The commission percentages for each net revenue tier are fixed and remain the same regardless of how long an affiliate has been a member. No other commission programs, such as cost-per-acquisition, are offered at this time.
Additionally, Matchbook Affiliates does not reduce affiliates’ earnings in the event that net revenue from referred players is negative (i.e. no negative carryover), and there is no bundling to worry about.
Those interested can earn additional income from the Matchbook Affiliates sub-affiliate program. It currently awards a flat commission equal to 6% of all commissions earned by referred sub-affiliates.
Members of the Matchbook Affiliates program may elect to receive their commissions by Electronic Bank Transfer (EBT), Skrill, or Neteller. Payments can be made in EUR, GBP, or USD. Commissions are paid once a month to all who meet the minimum $/€/£50 threshold. Affiliates who do not meet this threshold will have their earnings carried over until it is met.
Matchbook Affiliates dependably pays all affiliates within 10 days of the end of each calendar month. Additionally, no “administrative fees” or other expenses are deducted from the commission aside from regular costs accounted for in net revenue.
Matchbook Affiliates uses the Income Access platform. This software has some of the most robust analytics capabilities in the industry. Affiliates can customise their dashboard to view virtually all statistics, allowing them to identify which factors are most important for increasing net revenue share.
