We will only pay referral fees on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. For our systems to track the referral, the visitor must have cookies enabled. We will not pay referral fees if someone claims they signed up through yourself, but it was not tracked by our system.

Referral fees will be earned for the subscription life of a qualifying referred User. This means all subscriptions of that user account even if there are periods of discontinued subscription.

Once a User is registered and tracked against an Affiliate referral scheme, then the same user cannot be recovered against any other registered Affiliate Program member.

Scheme Payments

Referral fees are defined at https://www.rational.bet/affiliate-program. The referral fee will be set by express agreement between us and yourself as the Affiliate.

Referral fees are only earned if a customer makes a payment in full.

You undertake to update your Affiliate account promptly for any changes to such details. You will accept invoices raised by us during the term of this Agreement. You agree you will not raise invoices for payments covered by this agreement.

Customer payments refunded or payments charged-back due to credit card fraud do not qualify for referral fees. We may delay crediting of referral fees subject to risk analysis considerations and Anti-Money Laundering procedures.

A summary of sign ups and statement of referral fees is available to the Affiliate by logging into their Affiliate account.

The referral fee structure is subject to change at our discretion.

We reserve the right to disqualify referral fees earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive sales or marketing methods (including from sources deemed to be damaging to our brand and/or reputation).
