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

Payout settings

To configure your affiliate payout settings, navigate to Affiliates -> Payouts and select the Settings button.

From here you can adjust your settings:

Affiliate payouts settings
  • Minimum payout amount: A pending payout will not be created until the affiliates outstanding commissions exceed this amount.
  • Start payout numbers at: Customize your starting payout number to organize and track payouts more efficiently, such as beginning from #1000.

Generating payouts

Payouts are automatically generated once an affiliate’s commissions exceed the minimum payout amount you set. You can view these payouts in the Payouts tab:

Once a payout is created, you can view the details and begin distributing payments to your affiliates using your preferred payment method.

Handling payment requests

Although affiliate payouts are automatically generated once commissions exceed the set minimum amount, affiliates can request a payout at any time through their portal.

Once a payment is requested, you will notice the payout status change:

At this point, you can choose to process the payment before the commissions have exceeded the minimum program amount set.

Paying your affiliates manually

To pay your affiliates manually and mark a payout as paid, select Mark as paid on the payout:

Paying your affiliates with PayPal

After enabling Payouts in your PayPal account and linking it to your Mantle affiliates account, you can initiate affiliate payouts directly within Mantle by selecting Pay with PayPal:
