Anyone with an affiliate program knows that paying affiliates can be tedious, expensive, and complicated, which is why I’d like to offer up a couple solutions. I realize that many affiliate programs (especially larger affiliate networks) have some sort of payment system in place, but it is definitely worth checking out these tailored affiliate payment services.
With PayQuicker, both you and your affiliates become members so that you can send and receive free, instant global payments. Sounds pretty great right? Plus, US members get a FDIC insured bank account without monthly fees. So what if your affiliates don’t want to be members? Well, you can still send non-Members paper checks or electronic transfers. With PayQuicker, your affiliates have the choice to receive member to member transfers, paper checks or direct depostis (ACH/EFT). If they choose the member to member transfer, then they can choose to withdraw funds in multiple ways, they can even transfer payments directly to their own bank or use their PayQuicker Visa Debit Card. Its a pretty slick system, and so far, affiliate networks are loving it.
Payoneer provides a fully‐hosted prepaid card solution for Affiliate Programs and Networks. Payoneer really provides an extremely simple, extremely effective soltuion, and they are really focused on working in the Affiliate space. For this reason, I would say that they are on the forefront of simplifying affiliate payments through their API and constant innovation. They are already providing their payment services to hundreds of thousands of cardholders all over the world, including many of HasOffers clients, and part of the reason for this is their simple setup. You will be up and running in no time.
The best part is that both PayQuicker and Payoneer have actually partnered with HasOffers and integrated with our tracking platform. Does this mean you can’t use them if you’re not on HasOffers? Definitely not, but we have made it that much easier for you to get started.
Not only are PayQuicker and Payoneer simpler solutions, but they are safer solutions. They are backed by trusted banking institutions and have really helpful fraud features to protect you and your affiliates. So don’t just check them out for your internal processes, consider how much easier it will be for paying your affiliates. And remember, a paid affiliate is a happy affiliate.
If you have an internal account team or employee, make sure you forward this on so that they can do their own due diligence. I promise, you’ll be glad you did.
