More online marketers must support affiliates, often multiple tiers of them (if that's part of the affiliate marketing plan). UltraCart is a pioneer in that regard, by allowing affiliates to be paid the way they often collect their money, through PayPal. It's just part of the reason that UltraCart's shopping cart affiliate program is so well developed. In fact, there are over 50 different combination of options for paying affiliates, including creating special classes or groups. These methods allow the flexibilityt to both automate payment, but also include manual checks and even fraud prevention technology to help keep affiliate payments above board.
Shopping cart affiliate programs need to keep up with the increasing flexibility required by affiliates, including payment types. This option allows or even requires that payments be made through the popular payment gateway, PayPal™.
