Paying Affiliates Commission

While we have the ability and the backend logic, at the moment, affiliates are not paid automatically by Freemius. Instead, this is something that you’ll need to handle yourself.
We do plan to eventually handle it, but it will take us some time to get there.

Handling Monthly Affiliate Commission Payouts

  1. Once a month, after the 10th and before the end of the month, go to the AFFILIATION → PAYOUTS (tab).
  2. There, you’ll see a list of pending commission payouts, including the balance and the affiliate’s PayPal email address.
  3. After paying an affiliate their commission, click the SET AS PAID button to indicate that the commission was sent and clear their balance.

You may notice that a balance that’s under $100 has a yellow color. Our recommendation is to make the payouts only when an affiliate’s balance hits $100, or surpasses it.
