Frequently asked questions about payments
The idea of selling through your customer base isn’t new, you can just now track the whole process.
Q: How do I start using referral rewards?
A: The best practice is to manage your ambassador programs and referral rewards both in one place. Roster’s referral rewards are available to all users. First, decide which type of influencers will earn rewards and set up the commission structure.
Q: What rewards should I give my brand ambassadors?
A: It’s really up to you. Some brands pay a fixed dollar amount, and others pass along a percentage of referred sales.
For example, if your brand’s VIP Program offers a 10% commission on referred orders, anytime a customer makes a purchase using a VIP referral link or shareable discount, the advocate earns a 10% commission.
Consider commission tiers with premium rewards for your top-performing influencers. This structure can incentivize people in lower programs to work toward the next reward level. Sometimes rewards are for specific activities, such as a blog or photo. You can create one-off payments in Roster to compensate for these engagements.
Q: What are my payment options?
A: Reward your brand advocates through PayPal and Venmo.
Send payments on your terms, such as after your store’s return policy, to avoid paying commissions on returned orders. Also, Roster integrates fraud detection to prevent commissions on personal orders.
Q: How much does it cost to send payments?
A: Pay your influencers and ambassadors without any fees! Roster does not add on any transaction surcharges or additional payment expenses.
