TrialPay Affiliate Program -- Get paid for driving offline sales!

We're super excited to join the Abestweb community and introduce all of you to the TrialPay Affiliates program, the largest offline affiliate program out there.

What is an "offline affiliate program?"

Imagine being able to promote Burger King or Starbucks or the Gap store in everyone's local malls, drive sales to them, and actually get tracked and paid for those sales! That's TrialPay's offline affiliate program.

How does this work?

We've been working on the partnerships and technology behind this for over two years and we've focused on making it super easy for you to promote these offers!

Sign up for an affiliate account at: https://www.trialpayaffiliates.com and check out the offers available to run. Grab a link when you're approved for an offer (just like any other online affiliate program you're a part of) and promote it on your site. A user clicks on the link, registers their credit card, and when they go in store and completes the purchase, we track that and you get paid.


Any questions, let us know!
Thanks From:

Hi Convergence,

Great questions.

We're building out a FAQ for publishers and will post it here as a "living document" here soon. In the meanwhile, please ask any/all questions here or send me an email directly (affiliates AT trialpay dot com)

Our current offline offers include Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, The Body Shop, and Burger King. We will post details about each shortly or you can find the campaigns directly in your affiliate portal. (Sign up at http://www.trialpayaffiliates.com)

The minimum payout is $100.

Direct deposit is available.

Custom creatives are available to affiliates. Just email us your needs.


Thanks...keep the questions coming. Hope to work with a bunch of you soon!

After looking at your application and Affiliate Agreement, I have some questions:

1. It would appear that an affiliate would have to apply separately for each website upon which he/she is interested in displaying your offers. Is this correct, and why would you make us have to do so?

2. Re Section 2.4" "Tracking and Fulfillment. TrialPay or its representatives will track all aspects of the TrialPay Offer. TrialPay or TrialPay Advertisers may reject Users or transactions related to TrialPay Offers that do not comply with applicable requirements or criteria." What in the world does that mean? It sounds like you are giving yourselves the right to not pay for any transaction, at your whim.

3. Re Section 5.1: "...TrialPay may change the Commission associated with a TrialPay Offer or any incentive associated with a TrialPay Offer at any time." No advance notice? Do you change commission rates retroactively after commissions are earned?

4. Re Section 5.4: "Payment. TrialPay will use reasonable efforts to make to make any payments due to you hereunder within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month in which TrialPay receives payment from a TrialPay Advertiser for a Completed TrialPay Offer. "Reasonable efforts"? What in the world does that mean? Affiliate produces completed transaction, merchant pays network, network pays affiliate - that is how affiliate marketing works. This sounds like fly-by-night cpa and other short-lived "networks" that promise to pay and never do. You get paid, you send us the money. Sorry, but "reasonable efforts" sounds like a scam.

5. Re Section 5.6: "Invoice and Offset Right. TrialPay may invoice Affiliate for any amounts Affiliate owes to TrialPay or offset any such amounts against any amounts TrialPay owes to Affiliate, whether under this Agreement or otherwise." Huh? You don't pay affiliates until some unknown time after a transaction is completed and the merchant pays you. What could affiliates POSSIBLY owe to TrialPay and how do you justify deducting and such sums just by saying so?

I may have more questions later on.

Yea, kse, and not only that, but they are then also allowing their credit card information and usage to be TRACKED by any number of unknown third parties.

Thanks for the questions -- I'm not an attorney and can't give legal advice, but I'll try to respond to your concerns:

1. You can also just email us a list of current properties if you have more than one that you're running.

2. These offers are slightly different than a "normal" affiliate offer in that there is an incentive for the users (a free gift card, virtual currency, cash back, etc) tied to the offer. This clause simply trying to call out that if fraudulent transactions happen (such as a user registering with a stolen credit card) or if the advertiser rejected any transactions, we may invalidate those transactions.

3. Apologies if this isn't clear. We will try our best to provide advance notice; commission rates do not change retroactively after they are earned.

4. There are many variables to payments -- payment information being
incorrect, accounts that are closed, etc, etc. We've been paying thousands of publishers month after month (many millions of dollars) over the last 7 years we've been in business, on time, every time. This "offline offers" product is new, but we are not. "Reasonable efforts" is a legal term that means that we will take the actions of a reasonable person in making payments to partners, understanding that we may not always be able to pay on specific timeline because of reasons such as those above.

5. This is still picking up on the rare case of fraudulent
transactions. Because there are real costs to the consumer rewards
being given out, this is to protect us from fraud.


We hope you're all excited about this opportunity to get paid for driving sales to places where consumers still spend a majority of their disposable incomes.

In the short time we've launched this platform, we've had tens of thousands of people activate offers on their credit cards and spend at their local Burger Kings, Gaps, etc to earn rewards. Our platform employs the highest security standards out there to protect the privacy and data of all our consumers.
