The affiliates we work with should make every effort to comply with our values and vision for trading. Below are guidelines we use to determine whether you can participate in our programme.
Your website must be live before you apply to become an affiliate.
We’re passionate about providing value to users through the exchange experience. We don’t want users exploited, abused or manipulated.
If you’re selling tips or betting systems, we’d like to see tangible evidence it offers bettors an advantage.
In addition, we don’t want to associate with affiliates who promote casinos or slot machines as this does not fit with our brand values of making betting fairer.
Affiliate websites should have a clean professional design which is free of clutter and follows modern design best practice.
We also expect all affiliates to have properly configured security certificates.
Promotion and links
We will not accept applications where sites link to or reference any material that could be construed as criminal or inciting criminal activity such as:
-Violence or hate propaganda
Gambling advertising regulations
All potential affiliates should follow the latest gambling advertising industry guidelines.
You can find the latest regulatory guidelines here.
Access to members area
If you offer restricted or registered user-only areas, we require access in order to make our decision based on your full product.
We want to work with sites that offer valuable content to their users.
Your website should educate or inform users on event markets, current affairs, sports or betting.
Simply linking to other sites (such as free bet sites) does not fit with our values.

I am a Malta based affiliate. Do I need to tell Smarkets if I am tax registered?
As an affiliate based in Malta you are obliged to be registered with the Malta VAT department, however it is your responsibility to determine which category is applicable to you. Different categories exist depending on the nature of your activities and your individual set-up. Further information can be obtained from the Malta VAT department’s website https://vat.gov.mt/en/Pages/Frequently%20Asked%20Questions.aspx. As a Malta based affiliate you are obliged to send an invoice to Smarkets Malta Limited in order for your commission to be settled. Failure to produce an invoice from your end will result in your commission payment being withheld until such invoice reaches Smarkets Malta Limited. Smarkets Malta Limited will provide you with a document which will contain the value of the commission you have earned during a particular period and the VAT value depending on the Tax Status option chosen by you. This commission value amount should formulate the basis of your invoice and shall be considered the prevailing amount in the case of a dispute. Please note however that Smarkets Malta Limited does not assume any responsibility or liability in respect of the accuracy or correctness of the details included in your invoice, particularly any details relating to VAT.
