Due to these terms:

4.6 We reserve the right to change any earnings structure (or any part thereof) from time to time, for any reason we deem fit.

4.9. In the event that we determine any activity to constitute fraud traffic, or to otherwise be in contravention of this Agreement, then in our sole discretion we may: (i) recalculate the earnings in light of such suspected fraud traffic or contravention, (ii) delay any payment of earnings due to you while we investigate and verify the relevant transactions or (iv) forfeit any earnings due to you in connection with this Agreement.

4.11. If we suspect the terms and conditions of this Agreement have been breached or the occurrence of fraud traffic, we may hold any payment requests for the duration of the investigation and your account will be frozen until we can validate that there has been no breach of this Agreement. If your account remains frozen as a consequence of this clause 4.11 for a continuous period of 90 days, then in the absence of: satisfactory explanation; or evidence to prove legitimate dealings, funds remaining in your account will be forfeited and your account will be closed.

4.17. “Inactive Account” means an account where no traffic of any new registered players qualifying as First Time Depositors (FTDs) are generated within 180 day period or more.

8.3 We may terminate this Agreement, at any time, and without the need to show cause, upon written notice to you of at least 48 (forty-eight) hours. In the event of a breach made by you of the provisions of this Agreement and/or if you perform any illegal and/or unlawful acts, including without limitation, violation of laws relating to money laundering and/or spamming, We may terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice to you.


Commissions Structure - ALL
2. On joining this Affiliate Program your account will be set to our default commission of 20% of net revenue, rising to 40% based upon your performance but subject to achieving new FTDs in any 3 month period where failure to do so will result in a base commission rate of 12.5% of net revenue.

Dormant Account
14. If you decide, for whatever reason, to cease promoting Affilistar's brands, it is your responsibility to notify Affilistars of this fact, withdraw your remaining funds and request to inactivate your account. If you fail to do so, Affilistars reserves the right to tag an inactive account as dormant.

14.1 In the case of CPA deals, an inactive account that is deemed as dormant is an account that does not generate any traffic for a continuous period of 90 days.
14.2 In the case of Revenue Share deals, an inactive account that is deemed as dormant is an account that does not generate any gaming revenue for a continuous period of 90 days.
15. After the 90 day period a notification will be issued alerting you to the fact that the account is now deemed dormant due to inactivity. Affilistars will then give you a further 30 days in which to respond and confirm that you wish to stop promoting Affilistar's brands and close your account, or to work with Affilistars to reactivate your account and start promoting and earning money again.
16. If no response is received to Affilistars attempts to contact you during that 30 day period, your account will be closed and earnings remaining in your balance may be removed.

Performance Rules
11.3 Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.


Also, note Negative Carry Over:

Commissions - Negative Carryover
13. Commission due to Affiliate at the end of each month can never be negative. All negative amounts will be carried over to the following months until any net loss is recovered from net revenues generated in those succeeding months.

The terms are back, only with new day values.

4.18. If you decide, for whatever reason, to cease promoting Affilistar’s brands, it is your responsibility to notify Affilistars of this fact, withdraw your remaining funds and request to inactivate your account. If you fail to do so, Affilistars reserves the right to tag an inactive account as dormant.
4.19 In the case of CPA deals, an inactive account that is deemed as dormant is an account that does not generate any traffic for a continuous period of 180 days.
4.20 In the case of Revenue Share deals, an inactive account that is deemed as dormant is an account that does not generate any gaming revenue for a continuous period of 360 days.
4.21 After the period as set above, in respect of the CPA or the Revenue Share (as applicable) a notification will be issued alerting you to the fact that the account is now deemed dormant due to inactivity. Affilistars will then give you a further 30 days in which to respond and confirm that you wish to stop promoting Affilistar’s brands and close your account, or to work with Affilistars to reactivate your account and start promoting and earning money again.
4.22. If no response is received to Affilistars attempts to contact you during that 30 day period, your account will be closed and earnings remaining in your balance may be removed.

As a sidenote, the link in the sign-up form to the terms is not working, only a small link to the terms in the footer of the program page.

Email received 29 Sep 2022:

We have taken steps to mitigate the aforementioned negative financial impact, but we have only been able to do so to a limited extent.
This is due, among other things, to the increased costs imposed by our third-party suppliers.

As a result, despite our best efforts, the administrative fees must be adjusted to %35 as of 1.10.2022

@Guard Dog @melcb @bonustreak - inquiring minds would appreciate clarification... Was AffiliStars reinstated back to the Predatory Pit, because of the 35% AF?

No, unfortunately, this one slipped through the radar and is predatory due to these term changes that were made as well recently. I will say 35% is shady as well! They want affiliates to advertise for free I suppose!

4.2. On joining the Affiliate Program your account will be set to our default commission of 20% of the monthly Net Gaming Revenue generated from new players qualifying as FTDs referred by you. For the purpose of this Agreement, “Net Gaming Revenue” means: games bets minus games winnings minus bonuses minus chargebacks minus processing fees minus third parties fees (including but not limited to licensing fees and royalties) minus gaming taxes (including VAT where such tax is used as an equivalent to gaming tax) and any tax, charge, levy or tariff levied or charged on gaming turnover minus other adjustments required to make the calculation of the Net Gaming Revenue reflect the appropriate revenue generated. LOW REV SHARE WARNING

4.6 We reserve the right to change any earnings structure (or any part thereof) from time to time, for any reason we deem fit. - Predatory, earnings structure should not be applied retroactively, only newly acquired players should apply to the updated structure, and old players to stay on the old deal. affiliates also need to be notified by email if the earnings structure is updated


4.9. In the event that we determine any activity to constitute fraud traffic, or to otherwise be in contravention of this Agreement, then in our sole discretion we may: (i) recalculate the earnings in light of such suspected fraud traffic or contravention, (ii) delay any payment of earnings due to you while we investigate and verify the relevant transactions or (iv) forfeit any earnings due to you in connection with this Agreement. - delay no more than 180 days


4.11. If we suspect the terms and conditions of this Agreement have been breached or the occurrence of fraud traffic, we may hold any payment requests for the duration of the investigation and your account will be frozen until we can validate that there has been no breach of this Agreement. If your account remains frozen as a consequence of this clause 4.11 for a continuous period of 90 days, then in the absence of: satisfactory explanation; or evidence to prove legitimate dealings, funds remaining in your account will be forfeited and your account will be closed.

4.17. “Inactive Account” means an account where no traffic of any new registered players qualifying as First Time Depositors (FTDs) are generated within 180 day period or more. PREDATORY

8.3 We may terminate this Agreement, at any time, and without the need to show cause, upon written notice to you of at least 48 (forty-eight) hours. In the event of a breach made by you of the provisions of this Agreement and/or if you perform any illegal and/or unlawful acts, including without limitation, violation of laws relating to money laundering and/or spamming, We may terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice to you. NEED A BETTER REASON SUCH AS SPAMMING, BREAKING MARKETING RULES FRAUD ETC.
