Payout Requests

Allow your affiliates to effortlessly request a payout for their payable commissions straight from their affiliate account.

How do affiliate payout requests work?

By default, your affiliates do not have the ability to request payouts themselves. However, with a flick of a switch, you can offer this option to your affiliates.

With payout requests enabled, when your affiliates have payable commissions, a notification will appear in the Payouts tab of their affiliate account letting them know that they can request a payout for their earnings.

If they choose to request the payout, you can also request them to upload an invoice for this payout.

Once an affiliate makes a payout request, a new payment, with the status Requested, will be created. Also, if you enable the payout request email notifications, both you and your affiliate will receive an email about this requested payment.

Additionally, you will also be notified of the request in SliceWP’s admin dashboard page.

Once you, as an administrator, receive an affiliate payout request, you will need to process the payment and mark it as paid.

You can view all payment requests in your WordPress admin area > SliceWP > Payouts > View All Payments > Filter by Requested status.

Now that you know how this feature works, let’s check out how you can get started with it.

  2. Once you have SliceWP Pro installed, navigate to your WordPress admin area > SliceWP > Add-ons page and activate the Payout Requests add-on.

Step 2: Enable payout request invoices (optional)

By default, your affiliates don’t need to upload an invoice when requesting a payout. For accounting reasons however, you may want them to provide an invoice for the payment.

To enable this feature:

  1. Navigate to your WordPress admin area > SliceWP > Settings > General (tab) > Payouts Settings (section).
  2. Here, enable the Payout Request Invoice option and save the settings.

Now, your affiliates will be asked to upload a PDF invoice when requesting a payout.

That’s it!

With just a few clicks, you can offer your affiliates the possibility of requesting payouts directly from their affiliate account.
