Rakeback Partners Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Started

Please select a question below to see the answer.

What is rakeback?

Poker rooms typically take 5% cut of every pot, called the "rake". The commission that an affiliate receives for signing a player up to a poker room is based on the rake that player generates. Rakeback Partners then give the majority of this commission back to the player as rakeback, and you receive some of their remainder, as their affiliate, just for signing them up!!

What do I need to setup my rakeback site?

Absolutely nothing! You will find it useful if you have a domain name that is easy to remember to aid in directing people to your rakeback site. However, you don’t need to do this straight away, and can leave this field blank when filling in our sign up form.

Do I need any prior knowledge of rakeback or web design?

No. Rakeback Partners takes care of liaising with poker rooms, and answering all rakeback related queries submitted to your site.

Our Content Management System makes it easy to change features of your website, such as colour, layout and your logo, or update a blog, without ever having to touch the underlying HTML or CSS.

What are the best ways to market my rakeback website?

We know that in the excitement of launching your site it can be a challenge to ensure it's well promoted, so we're letting you in on some tried and tested tips for driving traffic to your site. They range from the free, to the cheap, to the more expensive, but all of them work.

The Free

The cheap-ish

The more expensive

As you can see there are many ways to get the best out of your rakeback site.

Your Rakeback Site

What do I need to do once my rakeback site is running?

All the administration of your rakeback site is managed by Rakeback Partners. This leaves you to market your website, letting people know about and take advantage of the various rakeback offers, while you profit at the same time!

Can I view my account and see how many players I have signed up?

Yes. Once you have logged in, simply click on My Account and you can check your balance for the current and all previous months.
Information about your players and their rake can also be accessed from here.

Do you have a referral system?

Yes. Our referral program gives your existing customers an incentive to refer friends and family for a percentage of their rakeback, whilst also giving you a share, without having to invest in any extra marketing. You will receive 4% of every player who signs up through your site as well as 1% of every person they refer to your site.


How much can I expect to earn?

You will get paid 4% of your combined players' Monthly Net Rake from day one, except in the case of Full Tilt where  the maximum referral fee allowed by FT is 3%. Add to this the extra amounts that you can receive from player referrals, and you can be earning significantly in no time.
As an example, if you have 130 players, with a combined rake of $75,000, you would earn 4% of this ($3000). If in turn, these players refer others, with a combined rake of $18,000, you would earn 1% of this ($180). Combined, you would be earning $3180 a month! Do not be deceived by sites that offer you massive percentages as they are often paying you based on your referrals rakeback and NOT their rake.
Also look out for our special monthly promotions where we pay an extra $10 per referral (subject to T&Cs)

How much does affiliating with Rakeback Partners cost?

Nothing, it is free to use!

We take an additional percentage of the MGR generated by clients, which covers all of our administration costs. This does not affect the percentage that you receive, and we do not charge any setup or ongoing fees.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer payment via the methods below on a monthly basis.

What promotions / freerolls can I use to help with advertising to my customers?

We secure promotions with all of the major poker rooms far in excess of all other rakeback competitors. We regularly offer a combined total of over $600,000 in monthly promotions, give-aways and rake races, which provide a unique incentive when attracting new players, as well as rewarding existing customers.

Do you offer rakeback skins in languages other than English?
