PokerAffiliate.com Payment Problems

PokerRoom.com was where I began my adventure in the online gambling world. They were one of the first, and only, Mac online poker sites to have a stable poker software for Macintosh users. They used to affiliates such as ourselves immediately by Neteller, but this is not the case anymore.

Once the UIGEA of 2006 piggybacked itself onto the SAFE Port Act and got into law, payment processors began dropping like flies, including Neteller. Now, because Pokeraffiliate.com used to send payments via Neteller to us, and Neteller shut all US member account down, we began having problems. I requested to receive paper checks via mail so I could take them to the bank and cash them. However, the check processing service that Pokeraffiliate.com decided to use (Wirecard.com) doesn’t send “real” checks. Rather, they send “collection notes” which involve major processing fees and major processing time (4-6 weeks).

Many US affiliates have notified Pokeraffiliate.com of this problem, however, they refuse to come up with a viable solution. Week after week they claim that they are attempting to find a solution, but nothing comes from this.

So, with that being said, I regret to announce that Pokeraffiliate brands, which include Pokerroom.com, Europoker.com, and Casinoroom.com, will be removed from our network until payment is received. The tardiness and unwillingness of Pokeraffiliate.com to find a real solution is unacceptable, and we refuse to keep paying advertisers money to promote rooms that don’t pay for the exposure in which they are receiving on the Mac Poker Network.
