LinkTrust integrates with Payoneer, PayQuicker and EntroPay

LinkTrust Streamlines Affiliate Payout Process and Integrates with Payoneer, PayQuicker and EntroPay

Salt Lake City, Utah (July 26, 2010)— Making the affiliate payment process even easier for networks and affiliates, LinkTrust released integrations with Payoneer, PayQuicker and EntroPay Monday morning.

“Working with these three quality companies makes it possible for us to save LinkTrust partners time and money,” said Bret Grow, LinkTrust president. “Now LinkTrust partners can make affiliates happy using the expedited payment process directly from LinkTrust.”

All three companies work to make the mass payments process as simple as possible, while still maintaining a unique market offering.

Payoneer develops, manages and markets co-branded prepaid MasterCard® cards as a payment solution for affiliates receiving payments from their networks. As an MSP with MasterCard, Payoneer's core product allows organizations to pay large numbers of people around the world, efficiently and securely, directly to their prepaid MasterCard cards, avoiding the delays and heavy surcharges of more traditional methods, such as bank transfers and international checks.

PayQuicker is the premier web-based global Internet payment processing platform offering a full array of traditional payment methods as well as a free Member-to-Member payment option; pay domestically or internationally to other Members, free of fees and instantly. Headquartered in Rochester, NY, the PayQuicker leadership team represents more than 50 years of banking, payment processing, technology and legal experience.

EntroPay makes affiliate payouts instant and hassle-free. Issued in real time under the trusted Visa brand, EntroPay cards give affiliates immediate access to their cash. No more waiting on checks, wire transfers, physical cards or ACH verification. Use EntroPay to send payouts in any amount, anywhere in the world for one low fee.

“LinkTrust partners should check out all three options. More and more affiliates want to automate their payments with services like these,” said Grow. “We have full confidence in each of these companies and their ability to provide the services that our partners need in a mass payment option.”

EntroPay now integrated with LinkTrust!

Five Ways EntroPay Makes Paying Affiliates Easier

Most U.S. affiliate marketers are primed to do business globally; however, many are unprepared to manage the costs and complexities associated with issuing checks and bank transfers to cross-border destinations. Domestic payments can be just as challenging, particularly for smaller amounts.

EntroPay is an innovative payment service that makes sending money hassle-free. Funds are loaded onto Virtual Visa cards that are issued in real-time, giving your affiliates immediate access to their cash. No more waiting on checks, wire transfers, physical cards or ACH verifications!

EntroPay Virtual Visa cards are a convenient way to send and receive payouts. Once a payment is claimed, affiliates can use their Virtual cards anywhere Visa is accepted online or by telephone. Affiliates can also transfer funds to their bank accounts or upgrade to an EntroPay Plastic MasterCard that allows them to make on-site purchases and ATM withdrawals.

As a web-based solution, EntroPay allows businesses to send frequent payments – of any size - anywhere in the world with no currency conversion issues. Its global payment capabilities can strengthen the relationship between affiliates and merchants who need both technologies and payment services that transcend regional borders and can adapt to rapid change.

Are your current methods making affiliate payouts slow, cumbersome or expensive? Here are five ways EntroPay can make the process easier for your business:

1. Avoid High Fees. With EntroPay, only one low, flat rate is assessed for payments, regardless of an affiliate’s currency, form of collection or country of residence. This allows businesses to send payouts without incurring the high administrative costs associated with checks and wire transfers, which can be as high as $40 per transaction.

2. Use Real-Time Payment Methods. No doubt, speed is a major concern for affiliates. A recent survey found that 62% percent prefer to be compensated through direct deposits and bank transfers; however, checks and wire transfers are still predominantly used for payment. Payouts made through EntroPay are instantly sent and immediately available to spend.

3. Access Trusted Global Financial Networks. EntroPay’s association with major financial networks such as Visa and MasterCard not only gives affiliates easy access to their funds, but also offers them global reach and greater purchasing power at millions of retail locations and ATMs worldwide.

4. Improve Payment Processing. EntroPay helps businesses overcome the inefficiencies traditionally associated with payment processing, reconciliation and tracking by allowing payments to be processed instantly via an email address. No need for bank details, mailing addresses or currency information. Just specify whom to pay and the amount, and leave the rest to EntroPay.

5. Strengthen Security. There are a myriad of threats in the online world, with fraud often at the top of the list. When initiating transactions online, both businesses and affiliates must operate in a secure environment, particularly when payments are made across borders. EntroPay’s robust fraud monitoring systems brings unparalleled security to payment processing through state-of-the-art technology and 24/7 support.

Take the hassle out of sending money to your affiliates. Use EntroPay for your next payout.

Separate Unique Clicks

We're excited to let you know LinkTrust 6.5 upgrade is live!

This release was added outside of our normal release schedule to provide a much requested and anticipated feature: The ability to separate and report unique clicks from duplicates.
Now you will have the ability to show affiliates unique clicks instead of total clicks. 

Control of this feature will be set at the campaign level within the filter settings. When enabled, all non-unique clicks will only be counted in the Duplicate Click column in reports. It is important to note, that all new campaigns will default with the new feature enabled, while older campaigns must be manually set.

Our training department created a video to explain the new feature. It will only take a minute to learn how to use it and get it set up the way you want. Watch it today!
