NetHive is the official casino affiliate program of the Winner brand of online casinos, including both Winner Casino and the newer WinnerClub Casino. Combined, these brands offer an extensive line-up of NetEnt and Playtech slots and casino games, as well as live table games and other kinds of betting. Many of these are available to both desktop and mobile players. NetHive is licensed under the government of the United Kingdom and does not market to US players.
NetHive offers its affiliates several different payment plans. The most popular and default choice is a revenue sharing plan. Under this scheme, an affiliate is paid commissions based on the net revenue that his or her players bring to the casino. The exact percentage of this net revenue received by the affiliate varies across NetHive’s products.
There is no negative carryover, so affiliates don’t have to worry about months where referred players create a net loss for the casino. Earnings are also tracked separately among its brands (i.e. no bundling). Unfortunately, there is a minimum activity clause. Affiliates who do not bring in any new depositing players within a 3-month period will have their commissions heavily reduced to a low flat rate.
Those who prefer may be able to qualify for one of NetHive’s alternative commission schemes, such as CPA (cost-per-acquisition) and hybrid plans. The exact details of these plans must be worked out on an individual basis with an affiliate manager, although most CPA affiliates qualify for a standard structure. Additionally, not all affiliates qualify for an alternative payment scheme.
Partners of NetHive can refer others to the program and receive even more commissions through a 2-tier program. NetHive pays all super affiliates a monthly fee equal to a flat share of all revenues that their sub-affiliates generate.
NetHive pays all affiliates who qualify for a payment within the first 15 days of each month. In order to receive commissions, the affiliate must accrue at least $250 in commissionable earnings, a relatively threshold. No admin fees are deducted from commissions, and affiliates who do not reach the required level will simply have their accrued earnings roll over to following months.
All payments are issued in euros only unless otherwise arranged with an affiliate manager. This can result in some foreign exchange risk.
NetHive is powered by Mexos software, an advanced affiliate platform developed by Playtech. It offers some of the most rigorous tracking capabilities available, as well as custom reports, easy-to-follow commissions, and integrated creative materials.
