How to Submit Influencer Payments through a Campaign

Step 4 View the conversions that have been made with your influencers' assigned discount code and/or affiliate link. You are able to view the date the order was made, the amount of the order, order #, verified status, etc. 

In addition, you are able to view the Voided status of the order whether it was voided paid or voided unpaid. Also, the status of the order is shown by how much commission has been paid or owed to your influencers.

Note

The 'Balance Owed' calculation is determined by the amount owed to your influencers including proposals proposed amounts, code, and link earned commissions, which includes pending payment items. 

Step 5 After review you are able to either delete the conversion or payout your influencer. You are able to delete the conversion by scrolling over on the conversions modal and under the 'Actions' column click Delete

If the conversion is reviewed and accepted you are able to submit your influencer's payments

Note

Once a conversion is deleted it will be both removed from the conversions modal and the Payouts section of your influencer's Live URL. Also, the Balance Owed equation will update to reflect the removal of the conversion. The order will not be deleted from your eCommerce store.
