NOTE: We are not handling the money transfer/transaction for your company we just do the tracking.

This means we are not transfering money from your Stripe account to your affiliates' bank or from your Paypal account to affiliates' Paypal account or bank account. However we offer alternatives that are both cheap and fast.

FirstPromoter allows you to pay through any payment provider you want, including bank, cash, etc as long you mark the payouts as completed, but we recommend using Paypal Mass Payments to pay multiple affiliates at once (it takes 5 minutes/month to pay hundreds of affiliates).

There are 2 steps required to handle the payouts with FirstPromoter:

  1. Generating the payouts. Done automatically according to the payout terms set on the campaign. More details.
  2. Paying and marking the payouts as paid(presented below).
