ArabClicks’ Payout Guide 2021 – Spotlight on Commission Payments
Here comes the really exciting part – in order to receive your Payouts, the following actions need to happen:
- Stage One
As an affiliate, you have started earning commissions. You can view all your clicks & conversions in your Performance, Conversion & Coupon Reports.
Before they are reviewed by the advertiser, your commissions will show as “Pending”.
- Stage Two
The advertiser approves or rejects your conversions. You can find average times for the advertiser validation in ArabClicks’ All Offers page. Just click ‘More Details’ underneath the Advertiser Offer name and rating – then look for Validation Period. Also, see the percentage of canceled conversions under Average Scrubbing Rate.
Once the verification process is finished and the orders are confirmed by the advertiser, your Reports will show your conversions as “Approved”!
- Stage Three
The Advertiser still needs to release your commissions to ArabClicks before we can transfer the money to you. Minimize this time by working with our Fastest Paying Advertisers
Once the Advertiser has transferred your payment to us, it will appear in your Payment Portal:
Explore this system – it has all your payment details & statuses – updated in real-time. Once your “Unpaid” balance reaches $100 or more, you’ll be eligible for payment in our next cycle!
Find the Payment Portal – after ArabClicks’ Login > My Account > Payments > Payments
See the Payment Portal Guide
- Stage Four
Once you reach $100 approved commissions, your Payment is sent to you.
To get your money, look for your email invitation to ArabClicks’ Tipalti Payment System – and register with all your payment details.
Tipalti is a top global payment system, similar to a bank. Tipalti is very experienced in processing Affiliate payments, which is the reason why ArabClicks trusts and uses Tipalti as our payment processor. ArabClicks uses Tipalti to process the electronic transfer of your approved affiliate commissions payouts, from our bank account to yours.
Frequently Asked Questions
A: We offer the most trusted, on-time payouts in the industry with a large variety of payment options.
You can choose from PayPal, Direct Deposit and Wire. Please note that our payment options do not include Western Union or Payoneer.
A: There are numerous reasons why advertisers will reject your conversions, for example, if your customer has a payment issue or returns the product, or if your conversions were from an invalid GEO or forbidden traffic source.
Also, some Advertisers require you to prepare your tracking for them in a special way.
See ‘More Details‘ on the All Offers page → look for Validation Criteria. Also, see the percentage of canceled conversions for this offer under Average Scrubbing Rate.
A: ArabClicks reports are updated as soon as we receive data from the advertiser.
Depending on the advertiser, this can take place in real-time, daily, weekly or monthly.
This is because while your conversions have been approved by the advertiser, they have not yet released payment to us. As soon as we receive your money, your conversions will show up in the Payment Portal.
A: A direct deposit is a currency transfer by a payer directly to the payee’s bank account – and can take place using several different methods.
The most common direct deposit method is a local bank transfer from within the same country, using local currency.
Another way to direct deposit is with a bank wire – using the SWIFT system. Bank wires are usually international & can be in any currency. Bank wires can take anywhere from a few hours up to 48 hours.
A: A SWIFT code identifies your exact bank within the international banking system – so your payment can find its way to you. Luckily, finding your SWIFT code is easy.
Just run a Google search on – your bank name + ‘SWIFT Code’. Example: Al Rajhi Bank SWIFT Code
Your code should come right up!
A: ArabClicks Payment Portal shows you all your ArabClicks payments – and their current statuses. See which of your approved commissions will be sent to you in the next payment cycle, and which have already been released to you.
A: Tipalti is a global payment system, similar to a bank. ArabClicks use Tipalti to process the electronic transfer of your approved commission payouts, from our bank account to yours. Once you have earned your first $100 in affiliate commissions, you’ll receive an invitation to register with Tipalti, so that we can pay you.
Tipalti is very experienced in processing Affiliate payments, which is the reason why ArabClicks uses Tipalti as our payment processor.
A: In ArabClicks’ Payment Portal you can find full data & details on all of your past and upcoming payments – whereas ArabClicks Tipalti Payment System is used to actually make the transfer to your bank account. When you want to update your payment method – make sure you do it in both systems!
A: Once you’ve crossed the minimum payment threshold, you will receive an invitation email requesting you to register and provide your details on the Tipalti Payment Portal.
When registering, make sure to enter information that exactly matches your bank account, billing address, and passport, as some banks may ask you to verify this information with scans of your original documents.
Note: Please enter ONLY your own details. Do not enter any information that does not belong to you – as this could interfere with your payment’s successful completion.
A: No, you need to register only once.
A: After processing your payment, it can take between 3 to 5 days to reach your bank account, assuming all your details were entered correctly. However, since we do not control the international banking system, this is a prediction – taken from our past experience – and not a guarantee.
A: The responsibility to accept or reject a payment rests solely upon your bank and is not related to our bank or to Tipalti.
Since banking information is confidential, in the event that your payment is rejected, only you will be able to ask your bank the reasons. However, your bank will usually accept your transfers if you are:
● in good financial standing
● honest about your business activities
● transparent about from where the funds are coming from, &
● have provided ONLY your own personal bank details – not those of someone else, including close family or friends
A: If you encounter any issues during the registration do not hesitate to contact our SUPPORT TEAM.
In the meantime, please re-review all instructions you received to be sure you haven’t misunderstood or missed a step.
A: Since only you know your banking details, ArabClicks is unable to determine if the information you entered was complete.
However, you can verify that you have entered all details requested by the registration forms, have not left blank spaces, or entered any information that does not belong to you. You can also log back into your Tipalti account and double-check your own information to be sure that the details you entered are accurate and complete.
A: For real-time updates on all your past & upcoming payouts, check your Payment Portal
Login to ArabClicks > My Account > Payments > Once inside the Payment Portal – click the Payments tab on the left.
A: This is because while your conversions have been approved by the advertiser, they have not yet released your payment to us. As soon as we receive your money, your conversions will show up in the Payment Portal.
A: If you have more than $100 Unpaid in the Payments view, please check your email for your invite to ArabClicks Tipalti payment system. If the amount is less, you’ll need to wait til you earn $100, then register to the Tipalti system to receive your transfer.
A: Because the Payment Portal only has conversions data from September 2020 onwards, it’s likely that you have approved commissions from before this period that were included in your payment.
A: You must update your payments details in 2 places – 1. ArabClicks’ Tipalti System – you’ll receive an invite after you earn your first $100. And 2. The Payment Portal. Find it – Login > My Account > Payments > Your Profile > Payment Methods > Then click the ‘trash’ icon to Delete or add New Payment Method
