    Payout: 50% upfront, 50% after X days
    Hey Affiliates,
    I wanted to get your thoughts on a proposed payout. Its a $90 payout for a subscription service paid out in two installments.

    1) Payout $45 upon sign-up
    2) Payout $45 after 3 months if the user is still subscribed

    The service is pay as you go - not prepaid 12 months or anything like that. At $20/month, there is a high risk for the business if entire $90 is paid out immediately.

    My questions:
    1) Is there any concern here? What are your thoughts on the two installments?

    2) Would you rather promote this deal or another (with similar payout) but with a sign-up that has a 12-month prepay?

    Let me know what you think. Thanks!!

    David

    Hey David,

    The offer sounds nice, and the 45 after 3 doesn't sound like a deal breaker either, but tool #1 in closing of sales is to give the customer options ...

    Would you prefer to pay:
    (0) $X now and $20 monthly; or
    (0) $ annualy

    Why not offer both?

    The annual prepaids will easily be a part of your percentages.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Hey Haiko,
    Thanks for the feedback. Thinking of offering long-term contract too. But its something for us to set-up and its not easy. There are a lot of moving parts.
