RP Affiliates (also known as RoyalPandaAffiliates) is the casino affiliate program responsible for promoting Royal Panda Casino. The casino was founded in March 2014 and rapidly emerged as a popular NetEnt brand, offering cutting-edge slots, live and virtual table games, and other casino favourites. It does not accept US players, but US affiliates are welcome to join the program. RP Affiliates is licensed by the government of Malta.
The RP Affiliates program uses net revenue as the basis for calculating commissions. This is equal to the gross revenue earned from all referred players, less all operating costs (including fraudulent transactions, taxes, and promotions).
New members are incentivised to perform well in the beginning of their affiliate relationship with a high 50% commission rate for the first 2 months. After this period expires, RP Affiliates uses a multi-tiered system that determines an affiliate’s commission rate based on net revenue. Affiliates also earn a “bonus commission” if they refer numerous players. All commissions are on a lifetime basis, and affiliates never lose their players.
The other terms of the RP Affiliates program are also highly favourable. Affiliates don’t have to worry about months where their referred players create a net loss: there is no negative carryover from month to month. Additionally, since the program is only responsible for one casino, there is no bundling to worry about.
Alternatively, affiliates may elect to enter into a CPA (cost-per-acquisition) program where they are paid a one-time fee rather than a lifetime commission. This program can be negotiated with RP Affiliates staff on an individual basis only.
In addition to its primary player-based operations, RP Affiliates also offers a sub-affiliate program. This allows members to refer other affiliates and earn a secondary stream of income. RP Affiliates pays a flat commission equivalent to 10% of all referred affiliates’ earnings.
Commission payments can be made by Skrill, Neteller, or bank transfer. The only available currency for these payments is EUR, which means affiliates who do not use euros will need to consider foreign exchange rates and other currency conversion fees. The minimum payout threshold is €100, but if an affiliate does not earn this much in commissions in a month, they will simply be transferred over to the next month.
RP Affiliates pays all commissions reliably, although it takes 15 to 20 days after the end of each month. There are also no administrative fees charged.
RP Affiliates gives its members the ability to view their statistics through NetRefer software. This widely used platform offers customisable comprehensive reports on referred players and revenues earned, allowing affiliates to track what’s working and what isn’t easily.
