    I, for one, like the honesty of these guys. I also think we should concentrate on the positive instead of the negative. For example: Colin is a responsive AM who is available and willing to talk to anyone - trust me, I have skyped with him many, many times. Maybe conversions are better than the properties you currently promote? I know the minimum is too high and I am sure they can be convinced to lower it, I doubt that is set in stone.

    Hi Paske,

    We value all of your comments whether they be good or bad, but I have been one of the opinion that you cant choose a book by its cover, and if you dont give something a try you will never know if it makes money or not!

    Were open to any suggestions and will look into every comment you guys leave here!

    HI Andy

    Thanks for your comments, and as I just mentioned above Im happy to take criticism from anyone, and respond...

    Were an open group that does listen and value each of your opinions, and I agree with Andy that conversions are where we should all be looking at.

    When it comes to the minimum monthly payouts, I think I also mentioned above that I will work with any of you that is wanting paid sooner, I am more than open to that...

    Define your version of affiliate-friendly...

    Albeit these T&C's are not bad per se but imo they are not as affiliate friendly, as they could be... EG - $500 min pay-out for small affiliates is absurd.

    Fact is, members are going to rake through these t&c's, and I dare say, going forward with any other programs in future. Likely more so that they have in the past, on account of what I outlined previously. Because these terms govern our business models, people are going to ask questions, on clause(s), which may not sit well with them. It's the sign of the times and affiliates are going to be wary.

    Reiterating it's nothing against Colin, Drake or AGD for that matter. It's just practical business sense. Unfortunately the days of blindly accepting 'things are sweet', has been annihilated by the programs (we trusted) who have recently shown their true colours, who shall remain, unnamed.

    But for me and I'm sure others too, it's not just making sure these affiliate terms are Kosher for us. It's also checking the T&C's, bonus rules etc etc, are good for players too.

    I'll leave this by saying...

    I don't buy a car without first scrutinising the contract of sale. I'm certainly not going to sign-up and agree to T&C's, which could led to problems later. If Drake is prepared to come to the table, listen to affiliates and work on fixing up some of these terms, then yes I'm happy to give you a go.

    Agree again with Bet4You.

    I would need minimum at 100 to sign up. And I am sure lot other affiliates would agree with that. I had same nice arrangement with 10bet like you use here. After that I got burned now they request at least 5 new players each month which I can not bring with brand they have.

    I know I would prob struggle with your brands as well making at least 500. If I made around 3-400 within couple months I would like to be paid but not just because you will try get us paid earlier. It needs to be in terms. Or please let us know why a minimum 500 payout term?? For me something is not right here.

    The $500 min could be because they only offered payments like WU, Wire, Check (cheque) etc etc. Colin did say they've implement Skrill and Neteller is, from what I understand, going through its final stages of compliance, I guess. But I do agree with you Paaske, that $500 is extreme.

    EG - Rewards Affiliates have a $200 min - for some smaller affiliates that's even a struggle some months.

    Lower payment values need adding to the T&C's :)

    Hey Guys,

    THe reason the $500 minimum was set before was due to the fact that wires and WU were the only options for US affiliates, but with the integration of Skrill as a withdrawal method now for affiliates and Neteller being looked at closely, I have no problem accommodating smaller withdrawals for the upcoming affiliates..
    As Andy mentioned, I am here to work with each of you and will listen to all and any critique and work with you and our team to ensure things are implemented accordingly...
    Hope this helps and remember that you are always welcome to email me directly at colin(@)drakeaffilaites.eu or add me to Skype (CanaffcoColin) and chat there, where I am available on both my desktop and mobile when not in the office.

    Thanks Guys,

    So deposit methods for players are only: Visa, MC, Direct Cash (assume that's W - U), Quick Cash and Skrill, that right?
