DOCH blacklisted Brightshare casino affiliate program because they blindsided their partners with retroactively changed contractual agreements. Many other sites followed suit and blacklisted Brightshare. Since then, this casino affiliate program has come to their senses and over-turned the retroactively changes for already signed up affiliate partners.
It’s all good and well to make changes and revert back to past agreements. However, Brightshare are notorious for breaching their Terms & Conditions, specifically, not paying commissions on time. In May 2013 when they introduced changes to their T&C’s, they paid affiliates on the 4’th of May. However revenue owed for June 2013 is yet to be paid, even though this casino affiliate program states in the Terms & Conditions they will make payment by the 15’th of each month or the first business day after this date.
DOCH isn’t concerned whether Brightshare will pay their affiliates, we know they will. The point though isn’t specifically about being paid but with regard to a contractual agreement which Brightshare has breached. This may seem like a trivial concern. However, if a casino affiliate program can not honor its own contractual terms, what’s to say it can be trusted to keep other promises to online casino affiliates?
It was Brightshare who promised their casino affiliates Life Time Revenue on all referred players. Yet, on the 1’st of May 2013, they broke this promise.
It’s clear this Casino Affiliate Program hold very little respect for honoring agreements. While they will eventual make commission payments for June 2013, I’m not sure they can be trusted to keep promises much less abide by their our contractual terms and conditions. Is this a casino affiliate program you’d risk trusting again?
