Affiliate Questions

How much does it cost to promote PayKickstart vendors as an affiliate?

It is absolutely free to signup and become an affiliate.  It only takes less than 60 seconds and you can create your account here.

How do I promote vendors products?

Each vendor is given a unique "affiliate request link" of which they need to provide their affiliate partners. Once an affiliate requests to promote, the vendor can either approve or deny your request. If they approve your request, you will find your unique affiliate link under "Links" in your PayKickstart account.

What's the difference between Instant and Delayed payments?

Instant payments are commission payments made to the affiliate, at the point of sale. Delayed payments are payments made manually by the vendor typically after the refund period has cleared.

What are the best ways to promote products as an affiliate?
How do I get paid commissions?

Ultimately each vendor you promote is responsible for paying out your commissions. However if the vendor puts your affiliate account on Instant Payments, you'll receive instant commissions to your Paypal account for any customers who purchase using the Paypal Adaptive API.

If put on Delayed Payments or customers who purchase using credit card, we recommend our vendors to payout commissions after their refund period has expired.

Where can I find promotional materials to use?

Each vendor has the ability to provide email swipes and banners that affiliates can access inside of the "Marketing" tab in your account.
