PlayersOnly is possibly one of the more confusing betting affiliate programs out there – mainly because of the conflicting information that you will find about the program out there.
The program itself is fairly standard for this type of affiliate program. There are two types of commission structures offered – a CPA program, that pays per paying player referred, and a MGR or monthly gross revenue system, which pays you a commission on all the revenue you send to the site, collectively.
So the system itself works exactly like other betting affiliate program – you send players to the site, and you collect a fee, either for the referral itself, or as a percentage of whatever they spend.
The trouble comes in not with the program setup, but with the company behind it. That’s because as of 8 August 2011, PlayersOnly’s relationship with Australian based affiliate manager, Commission Account, came to an end. Jazette Enterprises, the owners of PlayersOnly and several other sports betting systems, announced plans to stop accepting affiliates. They’ve also, as of May 2011, stopped accepting US based players, which severely limits earning potential.
While all of these changes are taking place, however, there are still affiliates reporting their successes with the program on internet forums and affiliate program boards, however, with so much uncertainty behind PlayersOnly, it may be wise to consider where you plan to sell, and not to put all your eggs in the PlayersOnly basket. They may still be around, but there is a little too much controversy for comfort surrounding them.
