Affiliate payments are an important part of the affiliate program. Affiliates get credited with a commission for the referral sales that they bring to the store. The merchant then pays this commission to the affiliates.
Many merchants, while starting with their affiliate program, often face the issue of setting up their payment method and process. GoAffPro provides an easy solution for merchants, where they can quickly set up their affiliate payment process.

1. Choosing the supported payment methods
Merchants have to select the payment methods that they want to support. The payment method that the merchant chooses to support will then appear as options for the affiliate. The affiliate can then select from the supported payment methods and enter their payment details.
2. Setup payment settings
There are various settings that merchants can use to make their payment process easier and smoother. This includes setting up payment terms, which would help merchants in making payments more regularly, and a minimum payout amount that will be the minimum commission that an affiliate has to earn before getting paid.
3. Paying affiliates from within the app
Merchants can also opt for paying affiliates from within the GoAffPro app by integrating PayPal Payouts. PayPal Payouts allows merchants to pay affiliates without leaving the app and also makes it easier to pay affiliates. The merchant can make payment to hundreds of affiliates with a single authorization of the transaction.
4. Paying affiliates outside the app
It is the most common way of paying affiliates. Merchants can use any third-party service to make the payment and do so outside the GoAffPro app. GoAffPro app gives merchants the freedom to choose the payment method that they want to support and pay using that.
5. Marking the payments as paid
After making the payment outside the GoAffPro app, the merchant can mark those payments as paid within the app. This allows the commission balance in affiliate accounts to get adjusted accordingly. Also in case, where an order is canceled or refunded after the affiliate’s payment has already been marked paid, a negative balance will be added to the affiliate’s account to balance it.
