Player validation and tax in UK
All UK players are subject to player verification process as set in the government law. Affiliates will be paid commissions for verified approved players only.
Due to the new POCT (Point of Consumption Tax) in UK since the 1st of December 2014, all United Commissions brands pay 15% duty on all revenue generated by UK customers. As a result, we deduct tax in calculating for “NetCash”, "% Commission" and “Total Commission.” This means that affiliates with a Revenue Share element in their reward plan see a change in their revenues.
Player Tax in other countries
Due to the recently added gambling tax in some countries (issued on 01.03.2015), the following calculation will be done starting 15.06.2015:
Portugal & Germany: all United Commissions brands pay 19% duty on all revenue generated by customers from Germany and Portugal. As a result, we deduct tax in calculating for “NetCash”, “% Commission” and “Total Commission.” This means that affiliates with a Revenue Share element in their reward plan will see a change in their revenues.
Ireland: all United Commissions brands pay 23% duty on all revenue generated by customers from Ireland. As a result, we deduct tax in calculating for “NetCash”, “% Commission” and “Total Commission.” This means that affiliates with a Revenue Share element in their reward plan will see a change in their revenues.
For the bingo brands, affiliates will receive the default revenue share sliding commission plan as follows:
For the casino brands (Moon Games, Wicked Jackpots, Vegas Spins, Royal House Casino, and Sin Spins) affiliates will receive the default revenue share sliding commission plan as follows:
The Affiliate is welcome to contact the Affiliate Program team to negotiate a custom deal other than the default plan, such as CPA’s or Higher Rev Share schemes.
In reference to a situation where the affiliate profits are “negative” due to negative net revenue on a specific calendar month, the profits of the following month would start at “zero” per brand.
Payment Structure – Exceptions
Daub Alderney Limited and the affiliated programs are allowed to reduce and/or change, and/or reset and/or discontinue the Affiliate's payment and/or commissions in response to certain events.
Affiliate Account reverting to Inactive Revenue Share offer:
"Chargeback" or "Credit" is a credit card transaction which is not collectable by a credit card company as a result of Players non-payment or fraudulent credit card use, or other Player payment transaction which is revoked and for which a credit is given.
100% all Chargeback and Credit amounts shall be deducted from the Affiliates commission or the reserved fund according to the relevant deal and net revenue.
Chargeback and Credit fees will be paid to the credit card companies or other payment service providers, as applicable, and will be administered by the Operator.
In cases of Charge-backs made by players on the same month the amount of Chargeback will be deducted from the affiliate commission in the same calendar month.
If chargeback is made by a player after the month that the affiliate received his commission the amount will be deducted from the next commission payment.
CPA payments and/or Hybrid containing CPA figure
A "Lead" shall mean an Internet user, who accesses one of the Sites\Brands associated with Daub Alderney Limited and the affiliated programs. This may accessed directly through a Link and opens a new user account and deposits the required minimum deposit, in accordance with all Terms and Conditions found in those sites/brands.
In the case of UK players, a user must be verified in order for the Affiliate to be eligible for CPA payments.
In the case that a player has joined at the end of the month and has not yet been verified, commissions will be added to the account upon approval.
A "Money Player" will be considered a lead who has achieved the following criteria, for CPA, by the tracking "trackers" and/or CPA component in hybrid "trackers". Said player makes a minimum deposit and wagers according to the minimum required on the affiliate's commission plan (based on the relevant Branded site).
Daub Alderney Limited and the affiliated programs reserve the right to change the required amount of minimum deposits and wager amount at Daub Alderney Limited and group and The Affiliate Programs sole discretion.
Daub Alderney Limited and the affiliated programs offer a different CPA commission based upon a different minimum deposit amount and a different wagering amount from one CPA commission structure to another. In order for an affiliate to trigger a CPA amount, The Affiliate Programs may require from the referred player to meet the Affiliate Programs requirements, meaning a minimum deposit amount and a minimum wagering amount of at least £10. As no limited time frame is set, the player can meet the time requirement at any given time frame in the future.
After a CPA commission plan agreement has ended, based on the agreement between the affiliate and The Affiliate Programs, the affiliate will continue to receive its reward (CPA) for late conversions. In other words all the registered players who have met the requirements of the agreed upon deal between the parties, for up to 6 (six) month's maximum from the day the deal has ended, will be entitled for the agreed upon compensation.

Such information is provided on a dynamic basis and may be subject to change. In case of inconsistency between the data provided through Information Site and our records, our records shall govern.
CPA/Hybrid Deal approvals and calculations
In the case of any deal agreed or signed, which is different from the default commission structure of united commissions, such a deal may only take place and be applicable after written approval by the affiliate manager whereby a specific link is provided to the affiliate. A deal is only assigned to site id (a_ ) and is not automatically applicable to all of the trackers in the affiliate account, unless clearly otherwise stated by the affiliate manager.
