Offers and payment models in betting

CPA (Cost Per Action) – payment for registration and deposit. This is a payment model in which the advertiser pays for a certain action performed by the user after clicking on the advertising link. In betting, CPA actions can be paid for, for example, by registering a user on the bookmaker’s website, making the first deposit to a gaming account, or fulfilling other specified conditions.
RevShare (Revenue Share) is a payment model in which the webmaster receives a percentage of the bookmaker’s earnings.
Hybrid is a betting payment model that combines elements of RevShare and CPA. That is, the advertiser receives a certain percentage of the bookmaker’s revenue received from customers attracted by the advertiser, as well as a fixed payment for a certain user action.
There are offers with registration fee (CPL) and application installation fee (CPI), but these payment models are rarely used.

Classification of offers
Betting offers can be divided into two main categories.
The first category is official bookmakers that have a license to conduct sports betting. Such offices may have a license not only in the country where bets are accepted, but also in other regions. In Russia, you can also find bookmakers with a gaming license, but the choice will depend on the geographical location.
The second category is unofficial bookmakers that do not have documents or licenses. Such offices often do not have a stable website, their sites can often be blocked, and gambling activities are carried out through mirrors.
In addition to the categories of bookmakers, an important aspect of working with the betting vertical is the type of traffic attracted, which directly depends on the source.
In addition, betting offers can be classified according to the conditions of their receipt and use, for example, by the minimum deposit amount, by the validity period, according to the rules of wagering bonuses.
