    Default My UK branch said 888 do not pay commission

    It's impossible those players are fraud. Since my partner in UK promote the brand by sending Ipod as incensitive, I made a 1300 dollar for the commission and I have paid 5 ipod now. And the 888 said no commission this month and said my players are fraud. this ridiculous!!

    Dear Xieben,

    My name is James and I work for the 888.com Affiliate Program Team.

    The Affiliate Program Team constantly reviews not only the work done by
    our affiliates in order to bring new players to 888.com but also the
    actions taken by those new players generated by affiliates.

    I have been reviewing the accounts of the new players which you have
    generated and unfortunately I have to inform you that we have noticed
    that most of the players you have brought to 888.com are breaching their
    user agreements and are getting blocked.

    As you well know the actions taken on the part of the players generated
    by you constitute "Fraud" as such term is defined in the 888.com
    Affiliate Agreement which governs the relationship between you and
    888.com. Accordingly we are not obligated to pay you the affiliate
    commissions which have been generated in relation to such players.

    Due to the actions of the players generated by you and following careful
    consideration we have decided to block your affiliate account. This
    means that you can not access your account at the current time nor
    should you expect to receive any future commissions from us - even in
    relation to any future players which you bring to 888.com.

    We regret that we have seen fit to take this action. If you believe that
    you can generate players who will be genuine players on 888.com and you
    do wish to continue to act as an affiliate then we would ask you to
    write to us expressing that desire and letting us know how you intend to
    bring "better quality" players to 888.com.

    Regards

    James

    NEVER EVER offer incentives to players. That is what they are referring to. This is the first and will be the last time that I defend a decision made by 888.

    The 888.com Affiliate Program has a zero-tolerance policy toward fraud. Period. We are dealing with a fraud issue here and that is why this particular affiliate's account has been blocked. Any further discussion with this affiliate will be through our fraud department.

    Our program encourages affiliates to be creative about the way they promote 888.com and its brands, including incentives. Our policy states quite clearly, however, that any incentive must be approved by the 888.com Affiliate Program before it is offered to players.

    How affiliates can prevent the people who just clicked on their affiliate link or banner somewhere, from doing fraud activities ?

    In term of offering incentives I agree, because it is something against 888's TOS and is directly related to the affiliate but regarding the fraud, affiliates should not be responsible for player's fraud activities !
    They can accept not to receive commission for these users but getting blocked is something else.

    Hope to get a reasonable answer.

    You REALLY are new here aren't you?


    888.con have been bumping people off their CPA list for years.

    Their term for FRUAD really means when you refer a series of players who do not lose enough money to justify paying you the CPA.

    They simply stamp the affiliate account fraud - lock you out - and that's the end of the story.

    You'll never get a detailed explaination or a rational reason ...
    And you won't get paid.

    I speak from personal experience here ... YES IT STINKS

    I have to side with 888 here.

    Incentivised advertising is not allowed, you will be hard up finding any program that allows it.

    Yup, as the number of my posts indicates (1 at present) I'm pretty much new here

    As I said it's ok but what about the fraud issue they mentioned ?
    Penalizing the affiliate for something 100% out of affiliate control ?
