    Just posted this on GPWA:

    Dear Affiliate

    Mr Affiliate is pleased the announce the implementation of a brand new commission plan which will come into effect on the 1st of June 2012.

    The premise behind the new plan is to ensure that your hard work is rewarded with extra revenue. We appreciate the hard work you do which is why we want to reward you accordingly. Mr Affiliate wants to give you the opportunity to control your own revenue which is why we are offering you up to an amazing 45% revenue share.

    Our brand new revenue share model is based on the amount of new depositing players that you deliver to Mr Green and is detailed below.

    Amount of FTD's Revenue share %
    0-1 25%
    2-4 30%
    5-14 35%
    15-29 40%
    30 + 45%

    Mr Affiliate has done a careful analysis of our affiliates to create a fair and achievable tiered revenue structure. So how does this new commission plan work?

    You will get a corresponding percentage of reward based on the amount of first time depositors you have in the current month. The Net Revenue is then calculated as a percentage from the total Net Revenue generated by all affiliated customers in a month.

    It’s important to keep in mind that rewards are recalculated on daily basis therefore you can see updated rewards daily in your statistics. Monthly Payment are then generated at the end of the month based on final reward calculations. In the new month revenue share calculations will start again based on the number of FTDs you refer in that month.


    What do you all think? The minimum % is 25% though which isn't bad - I'm not happy about it to be honest but not as bad as others.

    I think it REALLY SUCKS!

    Currently the terms are 35% for all players.
    Current T&Cs:
    If it is to be applied retroactively:
    This change will cost smaller affiliates (like me) to lose at least 5%, but more likely, 10% of my commission. :(
    This SHOULD also land Mr.Green in the Rogue pit!

    KK

    PS: Don't forget, NetEnt fees of 15% are also taken off Gross revenue before your commission is calculated, so the 25% Net is only 20.8% of Gross (after bonuses, charge-backs etc. removed)

    Yeah it sucks.. It's the same crap Ladbrokes gave us. Worst of all they bring it like it's a change to our benefit.
    New depositing players.. ridiculous.

    It will land them in the rouge pit if it is retroactive. I think the title is wrong, though... where are the quotas?

    The message I received says that you have to opt in to the new model.

    I'm not sure why that important bit of info was missing from the email posted above.

    The OPT in part is missing in my email as well. They have most probably segmented us after X FTD's we generate monthly which in my opinion is a really sh*tty move from their side. If they do this they should treat everybody the same (but we all know that isn't the way when it comes to affiliates). Also giving less than a months notice is bad as well. In my opinion they should let all old affiliate accounts choose to opt in or not.. but at the end of the day it's their business and they choose their partners/friends for the future.

    I will make sure to voice my concerns directly to their affiliate department... I hope that you all do it so we can make a change.

    Regards
    J

    I was also not given the opt in to continue on with the currant plan, so they are enforcing predatory changes to me!

    Same here and I have contacted them about this. It certainly appears that they have 'favored' affiliates with whom they want to be more careful. However, breach of contract really isn't an option.

    Yep - I didn't have the "op in" part in my e-mail either.
    Looks like big affiliates get the choice to stay on 35%, the rest of us get screwed! :(

    No. We do get around 8-10 per month on average though.

    Remember they deduct a large amount (30% from memory) from gross revenue before calculating your commission so the bottom tier of 25% is really 17.5% and the top of 45% is really 31.5%. I would not work with these guys for less than 40% at a bare minimum.

    The 'remaining on the old plan' wasn't in my email - I got plenty of signups last month and a few this month but conversion to depositors hasn't really happened for smoe reason.

    Has anyone heard back from them?

    I didn't get the opt out message, and I've barely made enough with them to buy a round in the pub so it sounds like they're being selective with their emails.

    Tried pushing them when they first came out but got zero interest.

    Like bonustreak, I complained and am not on my original plan.

    However, conversion isn't great at all - are there any NetEnt Casinos you can recommend for the UK market?

    I've found them to be the best converting Net Ent casino in the past.

    But since they changed to the new site layout the conversion rate has fallen. The previous design was really distinctive and unique whereas the new one looks very generic. It also has pointless features like loading every single page with ajax instead of proper URLs so you can't easily bookmark anything except the home page.

    Most of the Net Ent casinos are best known in Scandinavian countries. If you want something UK focused you could try somewhere like Victor Chandler or another well known UK brand perhaps.

    I definitely would not recommend Victor Chandler!
    They have quotas too - and they dumped ME for not bringing in enough players, even though my players gave them monthly action... :(
