There are many ways for you to make money online as an affiliate and the biggest problem any affiliate has is managing their cash flow. With the wide variety of timescales affiliate programs payout on, it can be very difficult to manage your cash, even if you are managing to meet the minimum payout levels!
Amazon, for example, pays you 60 days after the end of the month you made the sale in, which can mean waiting for almost 3 months for your money, and that is if you reach your payout threshold. Many other programs also pay out 90 days after the sale. Clickbank will pay you every two weeks, but again, you have to meet the payment threshold.
Being able to manage your cash flow is very important for an affiliate, particularly if you are spending money on advertising. If you are paying for advertising in advance (as is often the case) or monthly, then you don’t want to be waiting 3 months for the results of that advertising to hit your bank account. It can result in some very negative cash flow and major issues!
One of the best ways for you to manage your cash flow is through what we call “Instant Commissions”. These are products sold through a product such as Rapid Action Profits (RAP), which pays commission instantly to the affiliate through their Paypal account.
These programs work by alternating payment between the merchant (the product owner) and the affiliate depending upon the commission rate. For example, if the commission rate is 50% then the first payment goes to the product owner (this is to prevent people buying through their own affiliate link) and then the affiliate gets 100% of the second sale. And future sales alternate between the product owner and the affiliate.
If the commission rate is say 75% that means the first payment goes to the product owner and the next affiliate gets 100% of the next three sales before the product owner gets another payment. Basically, the product owner gets 1 out of every 4 sales with the other 3 going to the affiliate.
Instant commissions are great for affiliates because it is instant money in your account. You make a sale and you get the money. 100% commission products are even better because of the amount you earn on the front end. These products are excellent for your cash flow because you have instant money coming in to your account.
If you are an affiliate and looking at managing your cash flow better then instant commission products are the answer to your problems.
