Paying affiliates with PayPal Payouts Web

PayPal has recently replaced their older Mass Payment feature with something new called Payouts, with which you can use the Payouts Web method to pay your affiliates in bulk all at once.

Until we can update our affiliate commission report generator to output the new Payouts file format, you can modify the old-style masspay.txt report file we generate and upload that to PayPal Payouts Web. Here's how to obtain and modify that file:

  1. In your E-junkie Dashboard, go to Manage Affiliate Program > Pay Your Affiliates;
  2. Select the completed calendar month of sales you want to generate the report for, then click Check this month;
  3. If your affiliates had any earnings in that month, you will see a Click here link to generate and download the commission report for that month;
  4. Open/import the resulting masspay.txt file in your preferred spreadsheet app:
    • E.g., Microsoft Excel, iWork Numbers, Google Sheets, LibreOffice Calc, etc.
    • You may need to specify TAB as the delimiter/separator character in the import wizard or after you select the file to open.
  5. In column F, add PAYPAL to every line;
  6. Save/export the file as a .CSV (Comma Separated Values);
  7. See the section heading Upload a Payment File here for instructions on how to submit that CSV file to PayPal Payouts Web.
