A little about the program:
Posh Friends offers its partners a commission structure of 40 to 60% tiered revenue share and no negative carryover. The base revenue share on a monthly basis is 40 percent. Posh Friends also has CPA and sub-affiliate plans for its affiliates. Posh Friends is the affiliate program for Casino-X and Joycasino. The primary game provider for Casino-X is Microgaming. Joycasino's primary game provider is Net Entertainment. Posh Affiliates provides a variety of promotional materials, including banners of various sizes and mini-games that can be posted on portal sites. They do not accept U.S. players.


Our 45% earning was $4.48 of the net gaming revenue of $9.96.

So to summarise the Effective Net Gaming Revenue (the amount of money deposit and lost) is 9.96/20 = 49.80%.

Multiply your advertised revenue share rate by the Effective Net Gaming Revenue (49.80%) to get your
real rate, eg.
  • 30% = 14.94%
  • 35% = 17.43%
  • 40% = 19.92%
  • 45% = 22.41%

Dear partners,
From December 1, we are changing the Revshare commissions for the Casino-X and Joycasino projects. The new program will look like this:
0 - 15 new deposits - 15%
16 - 30 - 20%
31 - 50 - 25%
51 - 99 - 30%
100 - ∞ - 35%

poshfriends. com/news/updated-revshare-system


Meet a reliable business partner who keeps their promises and whose name is not PoshFriends.

Many exUSSR affiliates, who now have problems with blocking sites, whose traffic dropped, instead of support from their big partner PoshFriends, got a knife in the back.

"No money - no honey. Your problem its only your problem.The strong takes and oppress weak - this is the law of life. " - your best Posh Friends

So, i think need add this:
15% = 7.47%

7.47% - its best of the best of the best deal in affiliate`s life! Come on, take it!

And do you call yourself an affiliate program, Posh Friends? Seriously?

@kazak - good post :)

Funny this should be brought to light, because, a couple of days ago I made a post (https://www.affiliateguarddog.com/community/threads/things-that-make-you-go-hmmmm.16319/) about their piss-poor commission percentages being paid by an AGD paid sponsor.

Granted, PoshFriends.com isn't a paid sponsor of AGD. However, they are certified.

So what does "certified" actually mean?

Adjective - officially recognised as possessing certain qualifications or meeting certain standards.

7.47% certainly isn't industry accepted standards for a base commission payment. Buffalo Partners for example retroactively introduced 10%, and they got rogued by most affiliates. So how is it possible for a affiliate program to be AGD certified, yet pay commissions far less that Buffalo Partner who got kicked into the Doghouse for their 10%???

Makes no sense, does it...

Seems whoever is responsible for certification here at AGD, might need to update their skill set in this area. Or at least have some knowledge that anything less than 25% base commission is not acceptable.

Any program paying less than 25%, should NOT be certified.

Especially not paid AGD sponsors o_O

There is a public offer that will bait the affiliate for registration in this aff.programs , and it specifies the terms of cooperation. It is to them that a person agrees by registering in this affiliate program, right now. The conditions that can be changed in T&С, the conditions that affiliate programs hide behind a link, without showing them to a person during registration, are illegal. Such conditions can be compared to the small print in the conditions for a document`s loan at a bank. The affiliate program abuses the trust of the affiliate by imposing unacceptable conditions on which he did not consent. Therefore, this behavior is not only immoral, dirty, but also illegal.

For years Posh Friend was the one of most honest and reputable affiliate program. But this year something go wrong.

1.) First alarm is information about one private brand for excisting high rollers. And about cross-marketing offers to high rollers to play on this private casino. Ofcourse this "offers" don't contain any affiliate links.

I don't know is this true or not, but this news come from "the world of mouth" from public and private gamblin webmasters telegram chats.
Anyway this is very warning sign.

2.) Second is my own expirience. PoshFriends hold my affiliate comission within 4 months, since August 2020. I work with PoshFriends via RevenueLab, and RevenueLab managers tell me, that
PoshFriend don't pay affiliate comission within several last months.

RevenueLab is very trusty and reputable super-affiliate, and i trust them. I know that sometimes affiliate programs and super-affiliates have some disputes about CPA - traffic. But in my case this is RevenueShare for old players. And as i say before - no any payments from PoshFriends since August 2020.

Sorry for my poor English.

Already 2016 was clear, that this will not end in a good way.

On GPWA I made in that year public, that they installed a term to muzzle webmasters, if they have problems or if webmasters will find out things, Posh Friends doesn't want you to know.

Terms of work
[...]
19. Affiliate program reserves the right to hold Affiliate's account for public slander and insults towards the support and administration of the Affiliate program and / or projects.

Of course, Posh Friends has decided, what "public slander" is. A freeticket tool to blackmail webmasters to be silent, because if you don't shut up, you'll get no money.

This term was installed by Posh Friends after the "Blackmail-Gate", a public relation desaster.

The representative in Chief is still there until today, so there is no excuse for all, what happens now, that this is the result of a "new management".

Also Posh Friends has the same pattern as many programs in the meantime. They try to steal money, in different way, and only after public pressure, they fix the attempt.

An example from this forum: https://www.affiliateguarddog.com/c...-posh-friends-change-deals-retroactive.10805/

This is no mistake. I can tell you that. The only-fix-if-public pattern, one can detect at many programs now, indicates, it happened intentionally.

Posh Friends' demise was announced by their own actions already 4 years ago.

No one wanted to listen to me.

The failed head of affiliates of Posh Friends was last seen on GPWA on 17 Sep 2020, more than 3 months ago.

That says it all.

Also USSR Posh Friends was member of the CSPP, the "Corfleone Special Protection Program".

Now GPWA will do so again, as if they care about affiliates. They only change things, when associates of them make it public, if the public pressure of their wrongdoing is too massive and they have been caught red handed or if there is no other way, because the FBI is knocking at the door.

And this are facts, proven by more incidents then the Milky Way has stars into it.

Well then: Viva, salute, cheers.

Long time ago aroundish 2016/2017 i had their brands up on some sites and all was good untill i just did not get much more traffic to them.

I had them on my toplists and desided to push other casinos instead of their brands and within the next month they hold my earnings (i was on rev) and when i asked why they did not pay, they pointed out some term in their T&C about affiliates need to keep the reviews up to date and also NOT reducing the exposure they have.

I dropped them like a stone in the ocean.

I send complaints to eCorga. Will see what they say...

Not sure why you'd contact eCOGRA, they have no control over PoshFriends.com and or their casinos. They wouldn't touch these places with a barge pole.

I think, they will stop working with this company, and will revoked his all certificate.

They love them so much, write about them on every website. They broke my heart and killed my love for them, now it's my turn...

Happening right now

Only after GPWA was forced to disclose and so to change some public program details, the leading affiliate manager of Posh Ends now at once emerges from under the stone after 3 months of disappearing from that forum.

She is still online right now, probably answering zillions of love letters, sent to her from happy affiliates via PM.

Perhaps also whining at the Godfather, telling Michael, that they will reduce to Silver sponsorship, if they are no longer in the CSPP.

Will she post a public statement about the scandal?

Anything in the name of the soon-former program to the loyal affiliates, who now recognize, they have been fooled?

"Will she post a public statement about the scandal? Anything in the name of the soon-former program to the loyal affiliates, who now recognize, they have been fooled?"

As might be expected, not a single word. She and her failing program are not only cowardly, the alleged "lifetime commission" after a closer look into the terms is only a hoax, because there is another free-ticket term to steal money if they want:

Procedure and terms of payments
[...]
8. Affiliate program is obliged to pay lifetime commissions for all programs until the Affiliate fulfills his/her obligations and does not cause financial or reputational harm to Affiliate Program or its Projects.


There is it again, the blackmail: "Affiliate program is obliged to pay lifetime commissions [...] until the Affiliate [...] does not cause [...] reputational harm to Affiliate Program or its Projects"

As usual, Posh Ends decides, what "reputational harm" is.

One public complaint about missing payment or other things, and the lifetime commission is gone, if they want to do that.

Look at GPWA in the rigged Posh sponsor area or wherever you want.

With the exception of a fistful of strong affiliates here in this thread weeks after the Posh-Gate everyone is trying to act as if nothing had happened.

This ignorance exactly is the reason, why this industry mutates into a bubble which will burst sooner or later.
