The Complete Guide To Affiliate Payouts And Commissions

The Complete Guide To Affiliate Payouts and Commissions

You are an affiliate because you love ConvertKit, and believe in it’s value. We provide a commission as a way to say “Thanks!” for all that you do. Here is everything you need to know about earning commissions, and receiving that sweet payout.

Set Up PayPal

As an affiliate, you can only receive payouts through PayPal. You will want to set up your PayPal account, in Ambassador, by inserting your PayPal email address into the account settings. Once you’ve done this, you’re all set!

Yep. It’s THAT easy.

Get ready for those direct deposits!

When Are Commissions Approved?

Affiliate commissions are approved on a monthly basis, on the first day of the month. There is a minimum delay of 30 days before approving pending commissions (to account for any refunds since we have a 30 day no questions asked refund policy).  

Depending on when a commission is earned in a month, it can be pending for up to 60 days.  For example, if you earned a commission on August  5th, it along with all August commissions, would be approved and paid on Oct 1 (creating a 55 day delay).  If you earned a commission on Aug 30, it would also get approved and paid on Oct 1 (creating a 30 day delay).

Is There A Commissions Threshold?

While there used to be a minimum payment of $100, we decided no more! This means, if you have commissions approved, you will receive a payment!

Why Do My Commissions Say ‘Zero Commissions?’

If your commissions are reading, ‘Zero Commissions,’ it could be linked to one of the following:

  • Your referral is currently in a trial period, and has not yet paid
  • You might need to update your billing information

Not sure if these reasons apply? Reach out and ask! We'd love to help. 

Why Were My Commissions Denied?

If your commissions were denied, here are a few reasons why it might have happened:

  • The account was self-proclaimed, or was not approved by our team
  • A referral cancelled their account and a refund took place
  • We made a mistake! If this happens, (please put away your surprise face), we will contact Ambassador, and ask them to correct the payment status to Approved.
