‘Shaving’ is a word that has a different connotation in gaming affiliate land than with the rest of the world. For gaming affiliates, shaving does not have anything to do with hair removal but more so with the unfair and ethical practice of affiliate programs not paying out to affiliates the amounts they are entitled to. It occurs in different forms which most serious form occurs when players are literally stolen from the affiliate by ‘un-tagging’ the player or with the help of other tactics such as making up non-existing issues like player cheating, missing cookie or not even saying anything about it.
Of course these practices are of great concern with affiliates and countering the problem can be done by extensive testing.
This days Affiliates are still self-testing brands using friends and even family member to make sure their stats are correct. Self-Testing cost lots of money and it’s a massive time consuming…
AffiliateSecure.com has found a solution by conducting the tests for the affiliates in a larger scale. With fine-tuned testing methods irregularities in statistics are discovered and published, thereby serving as a starting point for affiliates looking for safe and secure programs to work with. Programs can apply to be tested where they will receive the “Approved” Seal – The Approved Brands are still getting scanned from time to time so assure safe business.
Many affiliate programs are being scanned already with most programs receiving the ‘Scanned OK’ result. The team of testers expanded all the time to conduct more and bigger tests.
Visit affiliatesecure.com to see which programs are scanned ok and which you should avoid working with. We appreciate all kind of support, such as: placing our Seal on your site, give us the Facebook “like” and even applying to become an official AffiliateSecure Tester.
