He will get the first deposit bonus (William Hill bonus Clear Rate is 29,4%) $2280 x 0,294 = $670. In this case the player will also get a VIP cashback of about 30% x 2280 = $684 (The VIP cashback can be from 18% to 40% depending on what time the player cleared his Cashback points) Your commission here will be $2280 x 15% = $342
What is a CPA deal?
CPA stands for Cost Per Action. This is a deal that means the affiliate is paid a one-time sum of money if he successfully refers a user to the advertiser’s website or service. This kind of deal can be offered on its own or in combination with a revenue share deal (a hybrid deal).    
How is a Revenue share deal calculated?
(Rake + tournament fees) - (bonuses + admin fee) = Net. For example:  You signed a new player at Betway Poker. The first month your Player raked $1000. This player will receive $300 in Rakeback and he will also receive $100 in Deposit bonus (Clear Rate is 10% at Betway Poker). Then your commission will be:  (rake + tournament fees $1000) - (bonuses + charge backs$400) = Net Gaming $600 x 30% = $180. So the first month you will make $180 in earnings from this player.
