Commission & Payment calculations
Affiliate commission fees will be a percentage of the net gaming revenue. Net gaming revenue is defined by tombola as stakes per game multiplied by the average retention per game less 10% cash costs, where cash costs cover transaction processing fees, user verification fees and charge backs. There are two types of payment options, a revenue share plan and a CPA commission plan.
All commission payments will be calculated on the net gaming revenue generated by players sent through by each affiliate per month. All affiliates will be paid commission for 12 months from the first game played by any player who generates net gaming revenue for tombola. Affiliates will be paid within 28 days after month end for the value that has been generated in net gaming revenue by players sent to tombola from the affiliate site in the previous month.
There are 4 levels of commission payments.
- Up to £750 net gaming revenue generated – 35% net gaming revenue share
- Between £751 - £1500 net gaming revenue generated – 40% net gaming revenue share
- Between £1501-£3000 net gaming revenue generated – 45% share net gaming revenue share
- Over £3001 net gaming revenue generated - 50% share net gaming revenue share
- Level 1 : 0 – 30 players £30 CPA Payment
- Level 2 : 31 – 60 players £40 CPA Payment
- Level 3 : >60 - and above £50 CPA Payment
- To trigger the CPA payment, players must make a minimum first deposit of £10 and spend £20 real money
Fee Schedule and Payment
Modifications to the fee schedule are effective when made, notwithstanding failure to notify any person. If any change in the fee schedule is unacceptable to you, you may terminate this agreement by notifying tombola in writing. Continued participation in this programme following the change will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
Payment will be made monthly, by the end of the month, and credited to your specified tombola account. tombola may accrue credits until such credit(s) equal at least £10. Once you become an affiliate, you will have access to all marketing material containing a unique affiliate code. When a potential customer links to tombola's website, they receive a cookie on their computer with your code. This code will generally stay on their computer for 30 days unless removed. If the customer leaves the site and returns while the cookie is active they will be recognised as your referral. When they register at tombola during this time period, your customer's account will be tagged with your code. tombola is not responsible for any problems or errors with the process of tagging an account with your code. Deposit of payment or acceptance of payment transfer will be deemed full and final settlement of all fees due for the month indicated unless you send us notice of disagreement with the amount payable within twenty (20) days from the date payment is made. The failure to timely send such notice irrevocably waives your right to contest any fees due for the relevant time period and any prior time period.
