Optimise launches Partner Pay to fast-track payments for all eligible partners

Optimise has launched Partner Pay, a new payment product that enables partners, publishers and affiliates of any size in Southeast Asia to receive faster commission payments with qualifying advertisers. Eligible partners can request express payment of their earnings up to eight weeks earlier than our standard payment timescales. This new product allows you to have greater control over how much you are paid and when you receive your payments.

Other partner benefits include fee-free standard payments to bank accounts in Southeast Asia and the service and support of our partnership marketing platform and local teams.

Once you earn at least $100 USD a month for three months through the Optimise network, you are eligible to become one of our Gold members, allowing you to request express or faster payments. Faster payments give you access to your earnings up to six weeks earlier than our standard payment timescales.

In addition, partners earning over $5,000 USD a month become eligible Platinum members and receive additional benefits, including exclusive upsized commissions as well as fast-tracked payments and reduced fees for both faster and express payments.

Richard Syme, Chairman at Optimise said, "With the addition of Partner Pay, we now offer the leading payment package in the market. Affiliates and partners of every size can now benefit from earlier payments and our exclusive campaigns with major brands."

Traditionally, performance marketing networks have only paid partners once an advertiser approves a sale and the advertiser has paid the affiliate network. However, this approach left partners waiting to receive their commission payment, even when the network knew it would get paid by the advertiser. As a result, affiliates and partners experienced cash flow issues which prevented them from reinvesting and generating more conversions.

Partner Pay will initially be available in Southeast Asia and the Middle East before becoming available to partners worldwide. Giles Hunt, Chief Technical Officer at Optimise said "We've listened to partners about their frustrations with the time it takes to receive commission payments. That's why we've launched Partner Pay to ensure our members can access their earnings as soon as possible."

Partner Pay enhances the benefits of our payment offering to partners. You can choose which currency to get paid in, regardless of the campaign's currency, and your commissions are combined across all currencies to calculate the minimum withdrawal threshold. Both features help you reduce your banking fees.
