    So, I wanted to talk about a certain issue called PRE-PAYMENT.

    As an affiliate manager, I talk to a lot of affiliates during my day, after we discuss about traffic capabilities, payouts, and expectations we get to the payment method.


    most (90%) of affiliates will tell you they need PRE-PAYMENT as its there policy.

    and ask you to transfer funds to a certain account and they promise you will see results or you will get your money back. ( they claim that they been scammed before, well .... we all did.)


    now, when I try to offer a different approach as immediate payment, that means that as soon as there a conversion I will transfer the money, that can serve both parties,

    Affiliate side- if he doesn't receive his payment he can stop the campaign and be done with it.

    Affiliate manager side- if all arrives good ill be happy to pay and continue this relationship (we all in this business to make money).

    for now, I started working with a few affiliates this way and we continue our relationship. and moved to NET terms.


    So my question is what you the Affiliates think and also to my fellow Affiliate managers what are you doing and how you create relationships.


    Thanks in advance

    Their policy is a load of bollocks. No network pays in advance, daily yes, if you push enough traffic, and you're trusted, but not in advance. I'm not sure what kind of affiliates are you dealing with, but it smells like scam. Steer clear and work with only those, who don't have this "pre-payment policy".

    Prepay is a must for affiliate networks looking to broker campaigns as fraud is of a very BIG concern these days! That's the only way to go about for the network unless you know them well


    Why would an affiliate ask for pre-payment lol

    hey man, I'm not dealing with this kind of affiliates, but I'm asking is their suggestion for this situation or we need to continue talking to 200 people a day and then... no business

    We don't pay PrePayments to affiliates. Actually it is good filter, since if affiliate is good one he already has money to spend for campaigns. Also it gives understanding that the affiliate knows how the industry work. With Affiliates who are doing well we switch to net 7, and everyone is happy about it. According to my experience in many networks I worked before opened Natifico, very low % of stories with prepayment ended well.

    P.S. By any chance we worked before together? In propeller ads smth like 5-6 years ago?
