1. What do I need to become an affiliate?


Nothing, except your desire to be an affiliate, and a desire to create naturally compelling content about PokerTracker 4 or Hold'em Manager 2. You don't even need a website, you can promote PokerTracker or Hold'em Manager via search engines, a blog, a Facebook group, Twitter, or any other socially acceptable method which allows you to share your affiliate link. All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site your assigned affiliate link, if that visitor decides to buy new copies of PokerTracker or Hold'em Manager within 120 days of clicking on the link then you will get a 30% commission on the total price of the sale. If the customer buys any of our apps or signs up for one of our services such as TableNinja or TableTracker within 120 days of clicking on the link, then you will get a 15% commission on the total price of the sale as well as 15% on any recurring payments.

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

Our Affiliate Program is powered by Post Affiliate Pro, the leading affiliate tracking software. Post Affiliate Pro uses a combination of browser cookies and IP address to track referrals.

When a visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, the Max Value Software affiliate server registers this referral and places a browser cookie on the visitor's computer. When that visitor purchases PokerTracker, Hold'em Manager or related products and services such as TableNinja II or TableTracker the affiliate server checks for the cookie that was previously stored, and if that cookie is not found the server will check the IP address of referral to allow us to give you a commission worth 30% of the sale price.

This process is entirely automatic when you are using an approved affiliate link or banner, all your referrals will be properly tracked to assure your commissions are earned.

3. How are payments managed?

Payments are issued in US dollars, and are paid on a monthly basis on the first business day after the fifth of the month. You can choose if you want to be paid by PayPal or Neteller, the minimum balance required to process the payment is $50.

PokerTracker offers all users a thirty day trial period. To avoid charge-backs and negative commissions all sales are verified 30 days after the sale is registered prior to processing commissions.

4. How do I set up an affiliate account?

Setting up an account is very easy and it's completely FREE. To get started visit the Signup Form and fill it out. Our affiliate manager will review your application within 24 hours, once approved you will receive a confirmation email.

Once you become a Max Value Software affiliate you will have access to a vast set of campaign reporting tools where you can see detailed statistics of traffic and sales you referred, and your choice of banners and text links.

Then you only need to place an affiliate link, banner, text link or other link at your web site or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, so you can start sending customers to PokerTracker.com.

5. What is an affiliate link?

An affiliate link is a special URL which allows the Max Value Software affiliate server to track the sales of your refereed customers, and attribute a percentage of the sale to you as your commission. Each banner tag or link has a unique tracking identifier, to assure that your commissions are properly logged the URL should not be altered. You will get your dedicated affiliate link, as well as URL's for different banners which automatically contain your affiliate link once you log into the Affiliate Portal, after your account is approved.

6. Can I promote Max Value Software through pay-per-click search engines or live video streaming services such as Twitch.tv and YouTube.com?

Pay-per-click affiliates are discouraged, the Max Value Software affiliate program is optimized to work with affiliates that promote Max Value Software related products via natural content such as a dedicated web page that provides poker instructional services. Live video streaming that features in-game use of Max Value Software products and services is an excellent way to drive traffic, this is a good example of natural content that will convert well with online poker players.

7. What products and services can I earn commissions on?

The Affiliate Program provides a very generous 30% commission on all sales of new PokerTracker and Hold'em Manager software products, as well as 15% on apps and recurring services.
