Last weekend we pushed two big changes to FirstPromoter:
Until last week, the only payout method available to FirstPromoter was Paypal. Even though it’s still the fastest and most convenient payout method, some companies and some affiliates prefer to use bank transfers, especially for larger payouts.
This payout option can be used together with Paypal and can be enabled by campaign(for ex. you can allow bank payouts only for your “VIP affiliates” campaign). If multiple payouts are enabled, affiliates are able to choose themselves from their dashboard how they want to get paid.
To enable the bank payouts go to Campaigns > Edit campaign > Settings tab and click the ‘change’ link on ‘Current payout methods’:
You can also add any payout method to an affiliate from the promoter overview page by scrolling down and clicking the new ‘Payout methods’ tab.
Note: We don’t make the payouts for you, we only collect the bank information(contact us for updated DPA) which you can use later to make the payments. Your bank app or money transfer service like TransferWise might even let you upload a CSV that we provide to process payments in bulk.
If you need other payout methods besides bank transfers and Paypal please contact us, we might add them on the next update.
The new payouts section
The new and improved payouts page gives you a clear view of your payouts and makes it easier to pay your affiliates. On the right side we added a menu that can be used to filter payouts by different payout methods and on top you have a button that lets you download and mark payouts as paid in bulk(for ex. you can download the CSV for Paypal mass payments).
Another great feature is the grouping by promoters. Click on the ‘Group by promoters’ switch on top to group payouts. This will make it easier to view and pay multiple payouts of the same promoter.
Please contact us on Intercom if you have questions or suggestions about these new features.
