In the world of business, understanding the nitty-gritty of payment details and commissions is crucial for success. Whether you're an experienced professional or just starting in your industry, having a clear grasp of these elements can significantly impact your earnings.

In this article, we'll break down the payment and commission structure of our platform to help you make the most of your partnership with us.

We understand that receiving your hard-earned commissions in a timely manner is of utmost importance. To ensure your payments are seamless, we offer two primary payment methods:

  • PayPal: There is no payout threshold in place. You will receive your payout on a monthly basis, provided that you have earned a commission. 

  • Classic bank transfer: If you prefer traditional banking, we've got you covered. However, please note that for bank transfers, there's a minimum payment threshold.


  • Threshold: For those who opt for classic bank transfers, we have a payment threshold of $50 USD (or its equivalent in your local currency). This means you'll need to accumulate at least $50 in earnings before we process your payment. Rest assured, reaching this milestone is entirely achievable, especially for our dedicated partners.

To enter or update your payment details, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your account

    • Located in the top right corner of your screen.
    • From the menu, select "Payment details."
  • Choose your preferred payment method:
    • Select either PayPal or bank transfer.
  • Ensure to fill in all fields. Please provide the country of the bank first. The form will then automatically display only the necessary details based on the selected country.
  • Taxation details: If you are subject to VAT, include your valid VAT ID in the lower section of the payment details to comply with tax regulations.
  • Personal details: Once your payment information is filled out, provide your personal details in the corresponding section.

  • Timing caution: Avoid making changes to your payment details between the last few days of the month and the 5th working day of the following month. Altering your payment information during this period can create unnecessary delays in the payment process.
  • Currency: Your chosen currency during sign-up determines commission payments. For changes, visit: How can I change my currency?

While we aim for a consistent payment schedule, slight variations may occur due to external factors. Rest assured, we make every effort to ensure timely commission delivery.

Timing is crucial, so remember: refrain from altering your payment details between the last few days of the month and the 5th of the following month. Changes during this period may cause unnecessary delays. To receive your commissions promptly, update your details well in advance or after the 5th of the month.
