VIP Affs is the official casino affiliate program of VIP Stakes Casino, a multi-platform site offering NetEnt and Playtech slots, live table games, sports betting, and more in an instant-play format. The brand focuses on a worldwide market (excluding the US) with several currencies and languages available to players. VIP Affs is under the jurisdiction of Curacao.
Members of VIP Affs are enrolled, by default, in the standard revenue share program. This scheme rewards affiliates for bringing new depositing players to the casino by giving those affiliates a share of the net revenue their players generate. This percentage increases based on the number of new depositing players an affiliate brings in per month.
For the most part, the revenue share commission terms at VIP Affs ensure that affiliates can count on regular income as long as their players are playing. There is no negative carryover, so months where players win more than they lose won’t hinder future performance. Additionally, there is no bundling across VIP Affs brands, and affiliates don’t have to worry about having their players un-tagged or having commissions reduced for long-term players.
Some affiliates with enough market presence and proven performance may be able to modify the terms of the standard revenue share program, or opt for a completely different alternative such as CPA (cost-per-acquisition). These deals must be negotiated directly with a VIP Affs employee.
There is only one potential hiccup that could arise: if VIP Affs suspects any fraudulent transactions in an affiliate’s account, they reserve the right to withhold commissions for up to 6 months.
Partners of VIP Affs do not currently have the option of earning additional income by referring other affiliates.
The payment terms at VIP Affs are mostly favourable. Affiliates only have to reach a €25 threshold to receive payment by Neteller or Skrill. This minimum is higher, at €100, for those who prefer or must use a bank wire transfer. No admin fees are charged to these commissions, and if the affiliate does not earn enough for a payout, the balance will simply be transferred over to the next month.
There are two slight drawbacks. The first is that payments are made only after 20 days have elapsed since the end of each month. This is a bit longer than average. Additionally, payments are only made in euros, and affiliates who use other currencies will need to pay any applicable currency conversion fees that their chosen e-wallet or bank charges.
VIP Affs is powered by the NetRefer platform. This affiliate software enables partners to receive commissions automatically and track the performance of their business. It is also one of the most commonly used platforms; those who are already active in the i-gaming affiliate industry will have no problem finding all the information they need about their VIP Affs activity.
