SBOBET Affiliates is the casino affiliate program that promotes Sbobet Casino, a sports betting outfit that also offers players live table games and a few other services from the SBOBET Software platform. The brand primarily targets players in the Southeast Asian region, but residents of China, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK, the US, and some other areas are prohibited from joining. SBOBET Affiliates is under the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man.
SBOBET Affiliates offers multiple commission plans to affiliates. These are revenue sharing, turnover, and CPA (cost-per-acquisition). Affiliates should note that all commissions are paid on sportsbook play only.
The revenue sharing plan pays affiliates a percentage of the net revenue that their players generate at Sbobet. This figure is calculated as gross sportsbook earnings minus taxes, payment charges, bad debts, returned stakes, license fees, customer incentives, and administrative costs. This plan uses revenue tiers to encourage affiliates to increase performance. Unfortunately, this plan does have negative carryover, but there is no bundling.
Those who enroll in the turnover plan get paid based on how much players bet in the sportsbook rather than whether they win or lose. The commission rates are flat and do not fluctuate based on performance. However, certain bets have a lower commission percentage, as explained on the SBOBET Affiliates website.
Finally, the CPA plan pays a one-time fee for each qualifying player who meets deposit criteria. These plans must be negotiated with an affiliate manager. Some affiliates may not be approved for a CPA scheme.
SBOBET Affiliates does not have any sort of referral plan included in its system. As such, affiliates cannot bring others to the program and receive additional commissions from their sub-affiliates.
Members of SBOBET Affiliates are eligible to receive one payment each month as long as they meet the £100 (or currency equivalent) withdrawal threshold for Skrill payments, or the £500 (or currency equivalent) withdrawal threshold for bank wire transfers. SBOBET Affiliates issues payments within the first 10 days of each month.
SBOBET Affiliates uses British pounds sterling as the default currency. However, they are willing to convert to US dollars or euros based on current market rates. Affiliates are responsible for any fees that a payment may incur.
SBOBET Affiliates is powered by NetRefer software. Affiliates can log in at any time to get a comprehensive look at their performance, including an at-a-glance dashboard and custom reports on any key metric. The affiliate platform also provides automatic commission invoicing and the latest marketing materials.
