With our PayPal Payout integration, we are unable to fully automate payouts via PayPal as PayPal always requires at least one step of human interaction/authorization in order to complete the sending of funds. That’s why you must manually authorize the payouts you wish to issue - it is nearly automated and only takes 1-2 clicks though -- super quick!

To pay ambassadors, log in to your Buzzbassador account and go to the Due Payouts tab in your Payout List. From there, you will need to click the "Pay all with PayPal" button, or mark the checkboxes beside each of the due payouts you want to pay and click the "Pay selected with PayPal" button.

Keep in mind that the payouts (or commissions) will be listed under the 'Unprocessed Payouts' tab first and then will appear under 'Due Payouts' tab once the commissions have been processed based on the Payout Processing Period you have configured in the settings of your Buzzbassador account.

Also, another thing to remember is that a payout (or commission) can not be issued to an ambassador if they do not have a PayPal email address connected on their account. If you try to send a payout to someone who has not yet linked their PayPal, t will remain listed as Due. The ambassadors will have to link their PayPal account themselves from their ambassador accounts by logging in and navigating to Settings > Payout Settings > Add PayPal Account.

Will Buzzbassador notify me when payouts are due?

Our team is currently working on payment reminder notifications and hope to have those launched vey soon! For now, you will need to log in to your Buzzbassador account and check the 'Due commissions' card on your dashboard, which will list the payments that are newly due. Or, you can also easily see which payments are due (in other words, which ones have completed the payout processing period) by going to Payout List > Due Payouts. Typically, most merchants will check the Due Payouts tab every 2 weeks or so and do biweekly payments for any due payouts. However, this is entirely based on your preference!
