    Anyone knew this?
    Well I found it out this month,
    My Wagershare payment came in yesterday and it was almost 260$ less than expected.

    We asked our affiliate manger and have been told
    That we pay the tickets for the Grand Slam Slots

    We see in our payments stats 3 times an adjustment of $85 and a few cents.

    Nice eh, they want us to promote this Grand Slam of Slots as much as possible and then we pay that much for it.

    Sorry, but I do find over 85$ per ticket a bit to much to pay.

    What other micro programs charging you the tickets?

    If that is in fact true, wouldn't an ethical affiliate program mention or tell this to the affiliates upfront, through some type of correspondence?

    Especially when the amount involved is as much as you stated above.

    Is reference to this action mentioned specifically in Wagershares T's & C's?

    we did see it yesterday and immediatly e-mailed Jarren our aff manager to ask what adjustments these are.
    Well today we chatted with him, and he admitted that he also did not know about it until yesterday.

    He also mentioned something that since we had a better rev deal
    we have to pay also a larger amount for the tickets.

    I dont like the fact that we have never been informed about it.
    It seems they did decide this over night or whatever!?

    I would like to hear from other micro aff managers regarding that.
    Is any other program charging the tickets to the affiliates?

    V-e-r-y I-n-t-e-r-e-s-t-i-n-g!

    BrightShare does NOT charge affiliates for the tickets their players win in the GSOS tournament.

    It is not considered a bonus, and not winnings - therefore does not show up in the stats at all.

    One more reason to promote GSOS through All Slots!!!!

    For your personalized banners, mailers, etc., please contact Roberto at:

    Rock on Marcia!

    this should make for an interesting day over at the WS office.

    If I were them I'd go ahead and send out an email announcing the charge since its still early enough to be given benefit of doubt that they did not know until yesterday (I think that was mentioned)

    ...

    can somebody explain to me how this works?

    what is a grand slam ticket?

    That is plain crazy please help me understand why if your commission percent is higher you would have to pay more for the tourney? That makes no sense to me at all! I hope other programs are not following in Wagershares foot steps here.

    Brightshare, Villento, Red Flush, Fortune are really coming out looking good as of late with all these other programs doing such shady things to us affiliates!!
