The Sportingbet Affiliate Program has a long and rich history of treating affiliates with contempt, one they proudly uphold to this day. They once completely closed their affiliate program, robbing affiliates of what was supposed to be ‘lifetime commission’ according to their own terms and conditions.
Then they reopened the program after an absence of a couple of years. The complaints started surfacing once again on affiliate forums. They were making reductions to commission rates for ‘underperforming affiliates’ and had a habit of sending out aggressive bullying emails.
This was just the beginning. In 2009 they revisited their ugly past and removed the ‘lifetime commission’ clause and replaced it with one stating that commission would be payable on referred clients for a mere 24 months. This was a retrospective change of terms or, in simple language, no more than a scam.
History shows Sportingbet change their terms at will and always to the disadvantage of affiliates. This company has a record of devious and unethical behaviour towards affiliates.

I have been with Sportingbet affialite program since 2011 and never really actively worked with them but they were taken over some time last year and since then the affiliate managers have been great and accommodating. The 24 month rule been removed under new management.
24 month thing has been removed only for the UK, not the rest of the world I understand
This program needs to be avoided. Two years and then they take your clients away. Ought to be lifetime. Dishonest at heart.
