Hi, is the only way to pay affiliates is through PayPal Mass Pay? PayPal Mass Pay requires a minimum of 100 payments per Mass Pay transaction.
Can I pay individual affiliates, one by one with PayPal through WP Affiliate Manager.
Please explain how.
Thank youFebruary 11, 2018 at 4:28 am #3294
Hi, You can also manually pay an affiliate with your own payment method: https://wpaffiliatemanager.com/how-affiliate-payout-works/June 19, 2019 at 4:06 am #4741
Hi @shadow labs
i have done a test manual payout into 2 test accounts that are live PayPal accounts, but neither of them has been paid. Can I confirm that by pressing the payout and having the PayPal email of the affiliate that this will pay the affiliate or is this just to keep a record? and I am supposed to go to PayPal and send the money to the affiliate? Thanks for your time.June 19, 2019 at 5:58 am #4742June 19, 2019 at 3:38 pm #4743
I can’t get it yet as I’m just starting to attain affiliates now, and Paypal told me that I need a heap of affiliates first. that’s why I asked the previous question? To start will I need to go to PayPal and pay each affiliate on Paypal? As I don’t want to lose them thinking I have paid them when I am not sure. So the question is when I hit apply to pay out in an affiliate profile will the money go to the PayPal email that they provided or is it just a record-keeping.I understand it works in mass payout.

@joshreid, When an affiliate refers a sale the plugin registers it as a commission. However, no actual money is sent until you make a payout.June 20, 2019 at 7:54 am #4745
so when i press the payout button for that affiliate the money goes to there Paypal account? If that’s the case my account is not working. Does it take a few days to get to the Paypal account? Does that affiliate receive an email?June 21, 2019 at 12:50 am #4748

If you suspect that your PayPal account is not working, then I recommend that you contact PayPal support. Let us know what they say.

@joshreid, First you need to generate a “paypal_payout.csv” file (Affiliates > Manage Payouts). Now submit it to PayPal using this method: https://wpaffiliatemanager.com/paypal-payouts-setup/June 23, 2019 at 8:30 am #4752
Sorry for the dragged out question but I will try to explain myself a little better to avoid confusion. If I have only 2 affiliates to test my site and as that is not enough affiliates for Paypal to allow a mass payout. Then if I goto each affiliate account one by one and press the payout button for each account, not a mass payout. Is this meant to pay that into the affiliates PayPal account? If so I have a problem with my account and I will contact PayPal.
