Contest details and terms and conditions
Only affiliates who are active participants in the Advidi performance marketing network (Advidi) may become Participants in The Contest. Active affiliates who joined Advidi before 1 December 2022 will compete in 5 different categories, each defined by the type of traffic they send to: Dating, Nutra, iGaming and Mainstream (Sweepstakes, eCommerce and Antivirus). New affiliates who join the network during the period of the competition, or who joined the network after 1 December 2022 or who have not generated more than $500 in the past 6 months, will compete in the “Newcomer” category. Both groups of affiliates are eligible to compete in the “Wild Card” raffles. The Will Card raffles will be determined through a draw. There will be a total of two Wild Card raffles.
The contest starts on 1 February 2023 and ends on 1 April 2023, CET. Each affiliate or company may only win in one category. In case one affiliate wins in two or three categories, the next runner-up from those categories will be selected to replace the slot.
The Company offers as a prize to the winners in each category an all-expenses-paid trip to Amsterdam from 25 April 2023 to 28 April 2023 (3 nights). 7 total winners will be chosen from 5 different categories: Top Dating Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Dating offers from 1 February - 1 April 2023); Top Nutra Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Nutra offers from 1 February - 1 April 2023); Top iGaming Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi iGaming offers from 1 February - 1 April 2023); Top Mainstream Affiliate (the affiliate who earns the most points from Advidi Sweepstakes, eCommerce and Antivirus offers from 1 February - 1 April 2023); Top Newcomer (the affiliate who earns the most points in any vertical and who joined Advidi network no earlier than 1 December 2022 or has not generated more than $500 in the past 6 months); and two Wild Cards (a randomly selected additional winner; each point earned during the competition receives one entry into the random drawing). Each winner in each category must have reached a threshold of $60,000 in revenue generated in the course of The Contest in order to be eligible for the prize.
The points will be calculated based on the revenue that each participant earns with The Company in the period of the Contest. Every $1000 in revenue will earn one point. In the case that the top 2 Participants have an equal number of points, the Participant who has generated more revenue toward the next point as of the last day of the Contest will earn an additional point and will be considered the winner.
Additional points can be earned through Checkmate Boosters. There are 5 Boosters: The Bishop, The Pawn, The Knight, The Rook and The Mystery Checkmate.
The Bishop Checkmate: Participants will have the chance to earn extra points by breaking their Advidi personal record. Participants will have from 1 of February until 1 of April 2023 to break such record. Those Participants who beat their record will be rewarded with 20% extra points.
The Pawn Checkmate: The Contest will be divided into four 2-week cycles for the purpose of determining the Pawn Checkmate. If a Participant’s revenue increases between cycles, then the points earned during the latest completed cycle will be increased by 20%. If the Participant’s revenue is lower than a previous cycle at the end of any cycle during the competition, they will no longer be eligible for these bonus points for the remainder of the contest. The first cycle will be determined by the Participant’s revenue during the two-week period before the competition begins. Participants who join Advidi during the competition still have the chance to use the Growth Amber. Their reference cycle will be 0, but they will have to show continuous growth in each next cycle to earn additional points from the booster.
The Rook Checkmate: Extra points can be earned by referring a new affiliate. If a Participant refers a new affiliate to the competition and the affiliate generates $5,000, the Participant will be rewarded with 20 extra points.
The Knight Checkmate: Participants may earn double points on Special Offers during the The Contest. The Company will send a list of special offers to every Participant through which the Participants can earn double points. If the Participant sends traffic to those offers within the specified period of time, every earned point during that period of time will be doubled. The list of special offers will be updated every two weeks, and the cycle will be calculated from the first Friday midnight (00:00 CET) after the email is sent. The offers are valid for double points for two weeks, and then new offers will replace the previous ones. The email with the special offers will be sent to the email address filled out by the Participant in the application form. The Company takes no responsibility if the Participant doesn’t receive the weekly email because of an incorrect email address, or any other technical reasons.
The Mystery Checkmate: Participants who win the competition for a second time will have the chance to receive additional compensation. It'll be up to the discretion of The Company to decide the exact shape and value of such compensation.
Prizes are only applicable during the timeframe 25 - 28 April 2023 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The winners will be chosen based on points earned through revenue (chargebacks / refunds excluded) and additional points earned through The Contest, confirmed by The Company and generated during the timeframe 1 February - 1 April 2023, and only if the eligibility threshold has been reached per Participant. Winners will be contacted and informed by 3 April 2023 at the latest. If the winner of a category has not reached the minimum eligibility threshold, The Company reserves the right to appoint a new winner for that category.
In case of breach of the terms and conditions, or in case of non-compliance, fraud or any other kind of damage towards The Company and/or its partners, The Company reserves the right to exclude the Participant from the contest with immediate effect. When excluded from the contest, the Participant may not claim any kind of compensation from The Company.
