Affiliates were asked “How many affiliate programs are you currently promoting?” for the 2013 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report.
The most popular response, at 53.6%, was direct deposit, followed by 28.1% for PayPal.
Then there were 15% who still like getting a check, as well as 1.3% favoring wires, another 1.3% who stated other, and just 0.7% for store credit.
I used to be big on getting checks, because I liked the psychological part of feeling the money as it came in. But then I was noticing that it was becoming a hassle to make trips to the bank.
Direct deposit is definitely a nice option, as well as PayPal for the small number of programs where I’ve got it as an option.
I do still have some checks in, but I may as well change those over to direct deposit, because I just deposit them by phone now, and that brief process, as well as the chance of misplacing them has become a nuisance.
More than sixteen-hundred affiliates were surveyed on their methods, preferences, and strategies for the 2013 Affiliate Summit AffStat Report.
