Members of Stars Affiliate Club receive compensation based on all commissions is the net revenue brought in from referred players through any of PokerStars’ products. This is simply gross gaming revenue minus all applicable expenses, which include but are not limited to bonuses, uncollectible revenues, taxes, legal costs, and payment processing fees.
The exact commission paid varies based on which products the revenues are earned from. The commission rate increases based on the number of new first-time depositors brought in each month. Some brands are tracked separately, while others are bundled together, depending on which “part” they are placed in. Further details can be found on their FAQ page.
This is the only commission structure offered by Stars Affiliate Club.
There is no sub-affiliation scheme built into the Stars Affiliate Club platform at this time.
Stars Affiliate Club processes all commission payments monthly, although it may take up to 30 days from the end of each month for a payment to be finalized. Affiliates are required to earn only $50 in commissions before they are eligible for a payment, assuming they are receiving their commissions to a PokerStars player account. Affiliates who request a bank wire transfer must earn $150.
Members of Stars Affiliate Club can track players and get various reports through a proprietary software platform. This area of the Stars Affiliate Club website also features various marketing materials that affiliates can use to promote the brand.
