Portuguese legal framework prohibits companies from involving affiliates in the promotion of financial services to the residents of Portugal
According to CySEC, the Portuguese legal framework prohibits companies from involving affiliates in the promotion of financial services to the residents of Portugal. Regrettably, this means that IQ OPTION will no longer be able to accept traffic from Portugal.
As an alternative to Portuguese traffic, they suggest you funnel your affiliate effort to other geos from recommended countries’ list.
On September 10, IQ OPTION will start redirecting Portuguese affiliate traffic to the backlink — you can configure it in your settings. As for the clients from Portugal attracted before the changes go into effect, they will keep paying for them as they normally would.
Please, make sure to apply the necessary changes to your ad campaigns and reviews before long. Rewrite the reviews targeting the Portuguese audience to adjust them for new geos and visit IQ OPTION Promo section for fresh landing pages and banners.
