Earned Commissions and Getting Paid

Affiliates are the heart of how we grow ListSurfing. When you refer new members we reward you in a few ways, one of which is a sale commission. Anytime one of your referrals upgrades or pays another month or year for their membership you’re rewarded with a % of the sale price. Of course this is nothing new to affiliate marketing.

In the past we have operated on a process where you would get paid when you requested your commission balance. The problem with that process is it is very manual on both the affiliate side and the administration side in addition to potentially causing financial/accounting projection oversights.

We’ve re-built the commission payout process so you no longer need to manually request payment ever again. Once a month we’ll be paid commissions but before we can do that we need you to do something very important for the process to work. Login to ListSurfing and go to ‘Account’ > ‘Account Settings’. There you will see a tab labeled “Commissions”. On that page you will see “Click here to save your payment gateway account details to receive commissions.” which will show fields for you to enter your payment email address for either Paypal or Alertpay. You’ll need to verify the change/update via your registered email address as a last step.

On a related note please be sure to understand our commission terms. We can’t hold on to unpaid commissions forever – we’re not a bank.

    Thanks!  I wish everybody would do this.  No telling where all I have money sitting that I forgot about or didn’t even know that I had.  LOL

       Ken, that’s one of the reasons why we spent the time to develop this payout method into ListSurfing instead of the old “Request what you earned” process. Some people never request their commissions, even 2 years after they’ve earned enough, and unfortunately there’s not much we can do about that.

      Going forward this will minimize that problem we’ve faced since starting ListSurfing.

      Thanks for the comment too!
