Why They Are Rogue
Online gaming watchdog Affiliate Guard Dog have labelled BetUSA as a rogue program, due to non payment of affiliates, disabled commission tracking, player cheating and communications issues. The program was officially changed to rogue status in May of 2011. Then, on the 4th of July, the company sent notifications to all their affiliates that they were officially closing their program.
The BetUSA is still active, but with both the company and industry insiders casting doubt on their stability, affiliates should approach them with caution.
BetUSA is an online sports betting program, based in the USA. They also offer online poker and casino games, and horse racing bets, and affiliates who promote their services can market one or all of the available programs.
BetUSA has a four tier commission structure, based on net revenues from players. Commissions start at 25% for revenues of up to $9,999, then 30% for up to $24,999, then 35% for up to $49,999, and finally 40% for $50,000 and over, so there’s a big difference between the various earning ‘brackets.’
Commissions are paid on the 18th of the month following the month that commissions were earned in, and payments are made by Neteller or into your bank account.
