Start an Affiliate Program from your WordPress Website
PayPal 1-Click is the most convenient way to pay your affiliates with Easy Affiliate.
Before you can offer this, you'll first need to contact PayPal support to ensure your account qualifies for 1-Click payouts. You'll need to be able to create an app from developer.paypal.com.
Once you've worked with PayPal support to ensure 1-Click will work with your account. You will first need to login to the PayPal Developer Site with your live PayPal account's username/password.
Once logged in, click on your profile image (top right of page) and select “My Account”.
On the next page select “My Apps & Credentials” menu in the left sidebar.
Make sure “Live” mode is selected.
Then Scroll down and click on “Create App” button.
Give your app a name. Ex: EasyAffiliate Payouts
Select Merchant As the App Type.
Then click the “Create App” button.
On the next page, scroll down and make sure only the box next to “Payouts” is checked. You won't need any of the other capabilities for this app.
Next, copy your App Client ID and App Secret Key and paste them into your Easy Affiliate > Settings > Commissions > Payouts > PayPal 1-Click. And save the Easy Affiliate settings.
You'll now have the option to choose PayPal 1-Click when paying your affiliates.
After you pay your affiliates with 1-Click you're given the option to download the CSV also, DO NOT submit this CSV manually to Mass Payments as you may generate duplicate charges. The CSV is just intended for you to keep for your records/history.
After you've downloaded the Payouts CSV, click Finish and you're done.
Note: You should login to your PayPal account after paying to make sure all the payouts went through. In some cases a payout might be rejected by PayPal and your affiliate will not be paid automatically. You'll need to work with your affiliate and/or PayPal support to ensure the payouts for this affiliate are not rejected in the future.
