I read this article about affiliates.
"Boy has the affiliate industry died a stinky death in Australia.
Ladbrokes/Neds changed terms midway through the year to try and make affiliates leave.
When that didn’t work they simply closed all small affiliate accounts.
I had sent well over 140 customers to Neds and they simply used a term in their T&C’s that said, “we can close your account at any time without any reason”.
Playup was even dodgier when moving 400+ affiliated players from Madbookie.
They simply stopped reporting numbers, didn’t pay me what was owed by madbookie and then closed my account"
