The affiliate experience

Enabling Payouts Service gives you the ability to create a seamless, branded experience for your affiliates.

When your affiliates visit the Affiliate Area you’ve provided using AffiliateWP, display a notice encouraging them to have their earnings paid through your new payout method. This can be done using the notice functionality provided by Payouts Service, as well as your own creative approach.


By default, your affiliates will see our brand colors and logo when interacting with various parts of the system. We also offer white-labeling which displays your logo and removes our logo and colors.
