    I'm thinking exactly the same. I don't know if Buffalo will remain a good program like as RB was for me but at the moment Andrew was very helpful and gave me all the support I've asked for.

    I am comparing my unique ad clicks to July stats and at the moment i am getting 60-70% fewer clicks for RB products on this new BP site. My traffic on websites remains the same and no spots for products have been changed. I wonder how this is possible. If this will continue till the end of August, i have then missed 600-700 unique clicks comparing to July and that is huge...!!

    Yes 100% agree Andrew needs a pay rise for all the affiliates he is retaining.

    I was told by Andrew that last month commissions will be paid by Buffalo by 10 August so this means that this week you (we) will be paid.

    It would be nice if existing RB affiliates could be put on the revenue share
    that is calculated by the revenue, instead of by the number of players. On the
    new commission structure, you could bring in a whale and still be at 25%.

    Let me know if we can have the old commission structure back.

    Hi Peep,

    Buffalo Partners will strip out bot visits and US visits which is why your visit amount would be less. I am waiting on final definitions of exactly what is stripped out and will get back to you on this.

    On this note, Referback always showed visits for all countries, and the conversion rates looked terrible sometimes because of it. There were many times I had to explain, especially to new affiliates who had signed up with us, that they need to look at the demographic report and take out their visits from countries that we don't accept players from to get the real picture when it comes to conversion. So I think this is a good thing that we're doing at Buffalo Partners. Will keep you posted...

    Hi NDG,

    For most affiliates, the new structure is better than the previous one at Referback (RB). For starters, Referback's commission started at 20% (if no new players were referred in a month), while with Buffalo Partners (BP), it starts at 25%. With RB, in order to earn commission of 30%, you had to have generated overall netwin of over $15,000 in a month. With BP, 11-40 new depositing players will result automatically in 30%. Most affiliates will find this more attainable. Also, RB's revenue share model went up to 35%, while BP has a max of 40%.

    Perhaps with a VIP you might have earned more on the old RB model in some months., but overall affiliates will earn more the way we have it now with BP. The new program does not have a sliding scale deal functionality based on netwin, so we won't be able to implement this old deal structure. Thanks for your understanding.

    Is that 11-40 New depositing players per month? Not just new registers, but actual depositing players?

    I hope not as that was an old trick to screw affiliates out of their earnings.

    Andrew why do not you just let us know what happens to these 3 casinos AFTER August 31st, are these open for NEW players WITHOUT an affiliate program? If so what is the reason for this ?

    That is what many here want to know!

    With the player quota, we will only be paid 25% revenue share on existing players unless
    we are able to make a player quota every month in order to raise the commission percentage.

    With the old commission structure, we would have been paid 35% commission for a big depositor.
    Now, we will only be paid 35% once we've brought in 41 new depositing players in one month,
    regardless of how much revenue is being generated for the casinos. While I don't see a problem
    with rewarding affiliates for quantity of players, I fail to see the real advantage of this change.

    What you said NDG

    I do not like the new structure that is a cost saving tool no doubt about that.

    I have no option other than to stop giving them exposure as I want the old commission structure back.

    What happens to the 3 casinos removed from the group remains a mystery.......but the answer is in the details.....

    Hi guys,

    Mummys Gold, River Belle, and King Neptunes casino brands have been removed from Buffalo Partners as these brands are being wound down for acquisition purposes. These brands all need an extensive overhaul to continue to see the high conversions that we historically are used to seeing and in turn the commission that affiliates would expect from these brands.

    We have taken the decision to focus our energies and time, both from an acquisition and retention point of view, on the remaining 7 brands offered to affiliates on Buffalo Partners, which are some of the top online casinos offered globally and that we know will show dividends in your results.

    Buffalo Partners currently offers affiliates the opportunity to market 7 globally recognised, renowned online casinos which we know hold exceptional conversions rates along with high player value and these have historically and continue to perform incredibly well for affiliates. The platform offers a diverse and attractive media archive that we update regularly with fresh content, games and offers for these 7 casino brands allowing affiliates the ability to offer multiple landing pages with proven conversions.

    In addition to this, we have given a great focus and continue to focus attention on the mobile casinos, ensuring that all the online casinos we are marketing offer an outstanding product and player experience for both desktop and mobile customers.

    We understand that there is some work required to remove links and banners from your websites for the brands that we no longer are accepting for acquisition purposes and this was the reason that we sent the communication to all affiliates across Referback and Wagershare in the last week of July, making everyone aware of their and allowing a month to start removing these links.

    We believe and have proven that the brands that we are now offering will yield higher returns, better conversions and have a better player retention.

    Thanks,

    Andrew
