Payouts
In affiliate marketing, the basic relationship between the merchant and the affiliate is made in terms of commission payments. The affiliate agrees to promote the products in your store, for that he expects to be paid. This revenue-sharing model is the basis of affiliate marketing.
Since affiliate marketing is low risk, affiliates will only get paid, when they bring in customers who purchase products on your store. This is a much better way of affiliate marketing since you only pay commissions when you sell a product.
The important thing about payouts to affiliates is that payments need to be done timely. Since promoting a product take a lot of time and effort, payments to affiliates must be done on time.
Payouts
Modes of payment are an important part of the affiliate program. It is always better to provide multiple payment options to your affiliates for getting paid. Since your affiliates can be of different countries or regions it is always better to have payment methods that work out for everyone.
It is also important to set a minimum payout threshold since transactions also cost money or fees. Setting such a limit will encourage your affiliates to cross the threshold quicker. You need to consider, that your spending includes both running an affiliate program and paying out commissions to affiliates.
To avoid misunderstandings, it is useful to communicate your minimum payout limit to your affiliates.
It is always better to keep a fixed term of payments for your affiliates, you have a choice of paying your affiliates, weekly, bi-monthly, and monthly. You should choose the payment terms, that work out best for you.

Payouts

Pending Payments

This section will show you the payments that are pending, the affiliates whose names you see in this section have successfully made referrals, and are ready to get their commission paid to them.
Pending Payment
For Example, Affiliate A has completed successful referrals, on the date 15th of July. The amount to be paid to him is $50 and his chosen mode of payment is PayPal. You can accordingly proceed to pay him.

GoAffPro will provide you with the above information in the Pending Payments section. Using this you can make payments to affiliates.

Payment History

GoAffPro also provides you with the option to view all previous payments that have been to affiliates. It showcases the date of the payment, affiliate name, amount paid to the affiliate, mode of payment used to pay the affiliate, and relevant actions.
In the Payouts tab, you have options to view both the pending payments and the payment history for a particular affiliate by name filtering and by viewing payments for a particular period.
The Payout tab helps you view both the upcoming and past payments. It helps you plan and manage your finances for the affiliate program. This helps you in reaching your financial goals and not overspending.

Store Credit

Store Credits
Store credit is a currency for your web store that the affiliate can choose to receive instead of money. Here, the affiliate is provided with either a discount coupon or a gift card. It can then be used to make purchases in the store. GoAffPro helps you set up store credit payments for your affiliates. These get generated/credited automatically on your behalf and are given to the affiliate.
The difference between a store discount coupon and a store gift card is, that store credits get added to the gift card which is both reusable and can be clubbed, while the discount coupon that gets generated, can only be used once and cannot be clubbed.
For Example, Affiliate A can choose instead of receiving $50 in money, $50 in discount coupons, or store credits, where he can choose to use these credits to purchase on your store.

It is very useful to provide the option to the affiliate to receive their commission in the form of store credits. This makes it much better for you as a merchant, as this would naturally mean more sales of your products.
