    Outsourcing affiliate payments?
    Hi,

    Our company is building an in-house program but we're considering outsourcing the affiliate payments, and possibly looking for a company to do this as well handle any other payroll/tax type functions as required.

    The main reason is that we are not US based and we're thinking that it will be easier to hire a US based company to handle this aspect. Can anyone recommend such a company?

    Thanks

    thanks. the multi-currency option looks great, but I'm not so sure we want to require all affiliates to have a mastercard to be paid. I think payments via paypal would be better.

    a number of companies do this, including webmasterchecks, rapidpay, chexxinc, etc.

    we work with the 3 above, only advice i would give you here is that lots of these companies have gone out of biz and had taken the payments with them, so do your due diligence here (prodigy payments, affiliate payment services, energyflow, etc. so get references and make sure they had just not popped up overnight, make sure they have some big clients

    if you have questions, feel free to pm me, we have been dealing with affiliate systems for years

    Hi,

    Chexx is a parked page and rapidpay does not resolve at all. Thanks though. The other I have looked at already and they do look pretty good.

    If you want to use PayPal, you can do that yourselves with batch payments. There will be PP fees and currency conversion fees for the payee involved so you'll have to figure out how to deal with those.
