A payout consolidates all pending commissions, preparing them for disbursement to the affiliate, whether manually or via PayPal, at a chosen time.

Affiliate payouts settings

Payout generation:

  • Automatic: Automatically roll up commissions at the end of each month in a pending payout, awaiting approval and payment.
  • Manual: Manually generate payouts.

Additional settings:

  • Minimum payment amount: Establish a minimum payment amount; commissions will accumulate until this threshold is reached before rolling up into a payout.

  • Start payout numbers at: Customize your starting payout number to organize and track payouts more efficiently, such as beginning from #1000.

Generating payouts

If you have payouts set to automatically roll up, you will see payouts generated at the end of each month in a pending payout, awaiting approval and payment.

If you’re generating payments manually, head to your affiliate program dashboard and from there, locate the affiliate you’d like to generate a payout for:

Select affiliate

and select Generate payout located at the top right of their information screen:

Generate affiliate payouts

By selecting Generate payouts, Mantle will initiate the payment record process, reflecting this action in both your Payouts section and on the affiliate’s portal, making the transaction visible to both parties.

Review the payouts modal and if the information is correct, click Generate payout:
