    Only been working with these guys a short while, but doing pretty well with them!

    The only problem is getting paid in a sensible way.
    I'm in the UK, but they can't pay in £. That's fine - I'm used to being paid in $ or €.

    They paid me in $ to a Visa card last month - but now say they can't do that again. :confused:
    They also can't send money by Skrill, Neteller or Ecopayz.

    They CAN do bank wire, but $1,500 minimum and they can only send in CAD or Euro.
    So that would mean 2 lots of conversion fees: $ to €, and then € to £.
    I guess I will have to settle for that - but it's an expensive pain in the rear!

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    Yes, same story here. Wire seems the only option.

    See if you can open a players account - get the commission transferred to players account and then get a cheque or a WT- that's what I do
    Talk with your aff manager before you do to make sure you can do that

    they might be able to open one if you ask them - a dormant - it can't hurt to ask - maybe them can set one up for you

    Bankwire into a EUR denominated account.

    We accumulate the euros and then convert back when the rate to our local currency is favourable. (3-4 times per year)
    This actually works out as a positive compared to taking whatever rate is available on payment day.

    No, they said it was because they had changed their processor.
    Worked fine in January, now they say they can't send to the exact same card... :confused:

    It's a little annoying, but they cut me a reasonable deal when I signed-up and they are performing well, so I can't really complain about a few exchange charges... ;)

    I was going to shoot them an email, but this months payment just showed up this morning via CC.

    I agree as I have been working with them for several years now and they have been very good about payments (always on time!) and they convert very well.

    They would definatly benefit "Or I would prefer" a bitcoin solution, it seems to be the norm now as an extra added option

    We get a check. We don't have a player account. I would inquire.

    KK, you made me wonder what conversion rate they use for $ to Euro. If they use the official trading rate then you don't loose money on that one, but just later converting to pounds.
    That should be the case cause their payout account is just in EU - making you pay for the conversion doesn't make sense here. Maybe you can check with Ryaz.

    When the money arrived in my bank, it equated to 1.45 $/£ (having gone through 2 exchange transactions)
    The market rate according to xe.com on that day was 1.42 $/£.
    So I lost about 2% on the transaction, which is not too bad really - can't complain.

    I think you'll get your wish. They have rolled out bitcoin deposits and withdrawals to some of their tertiary products. Recently the Bovada brand begun accepting bitcoin deposits as well (no withdrawals yet). And my last piece of evidence is that I met up with them at LAC and asked about btc, and was told that it's likely to become an option, however no ETA was given at that time.
