Polder Affiliates is the casino affiliate program for Polder Casino, an instant-play, multi-platform online casino. The brand was created in 2013 with the goal of reaching all types of casino players, including those on both desktop and mobile devices. It is open to residents of most countries of the world, except the United States and some other regions. Affiliates should be fully aware of the program’s minimum activity clause. Polder Affiliates is governed under the laws of Malta.
By default, members of Polder Affiliates are paid on the basis of net revenue brought in from referred players. This figure is calculated monthly as gross gaming revenue minus duties and taxes, processing fees, fraud expenses, and promotional costs. Polder Affiliates pays its partners a flat percentage of this amount; the commission rate itself is not subject to change.
One unique thing about Polder Affiliates’ revenue sharing plan is how net wins and losses are handled. A 20% fee is taken from all net gains in a given month. However, if a particular player wins more than he or she loses, only 85% of a player’s net win will be deducted from monthly net revenue.
There is no negative carryover in most cases. An exception is made if an affiliate has a net loss of €5000 or more for a single month. If this occurs, an affiliate manager will contact the affiliate. The players responsible for the negative balance will then be quarantined from the affiliate’s other players. Their balances will carry forward and must be re-earned before any future commissions will be paid from those players.
Polder Affiliates reserves the right to enforce a minimum level of activity on any affiliate account. Failure to meet these quotas can result in a reduction of commissions or account termination.
Eligible affiliates can request to be placed under the program’s standard CPA (cost-per-acquisition) program instead. This scheme pays a one-time fee for each new depositing player who meets agreed upon criteria. The more players brought in within a single month, the higher the fee will be.
There is no sub-affiliation scheme available through Polder Affiliates at this time.
Polder Affiliates currently pays commissions via bank wire transfer only. Although this option is universally accepted, it is not ideal for most affiliates. Polder Affiliates only processes payments for affiliates with a balance of €500 or more. Affiliates are also responsible for any costs charged by their bank for the service, including foreign exchange fees since all payments are made in euros only.
Polder Affiliates is powered by Sarah Enterprises software. Affiliates can use this platform to check the latest information about their players, from wagering information to commissions earned. The platform also provides integrated marketing materials from management.
