Several days ago a merchant has contacted me with a good question. They have decided to build an in-house affiliate program, but they do not want to mess with payments, and would much rather outsource the payment part to a third party. So, if they manage their program in-house, track things with a self-hosted software, but do not want to cut checks, who could they turn to?
There are several solutions out there. I’ll be honest, I have not worked with any one of these. So, the order in which they are listed below in merely alphabetical:
- Affiliate Speedpay
- Chexx Inc
- PayPal Mass Pay
- Webmaster Checks
Whether you decide to handle the payments part in-house, or outsource it to a third party, make sure you are prompt and accurate. It is a touchy area that must be handled properly and orderly at all times.
