How come some Affiliate Programs Don’t Accept Paypal..?

I recently received this question from a reader and it got me thinking… Basically the question was about why some affiliate programs do not accept Paypal which has had me stumped on many occasions too.. What is particularly interesting about it is when marketing for affiliate programs and they do not, most have high costs to send checks or wire transfer overseas for affiliates… When contacting the support systems of various programs, asking about another form of payment type like Paypal i have been surprised on how so many refuse this type of payment…

Some affiliate programs really need to give the marketers more choice when it comes to payment choice types… I am always really surprised when the smaller programs allow more options…

Out of all my time affiliate marketing i have noticed one thing in common, most online marketers prefer Paypal… It is easy, quick and simple… And no matter where the affiliate program is in the world, payments are instant.. I have always wondered how some big affiliate programs see this type of payment, do they see it as dodgy…? To me it seems dodgy to wait by the letterbox for weeks waiting for a check… I mean this is the Internet, how does it make a affiliate program look if they do not pay there affiliates with a common online payment system…? Ummm, Paypal…

Unfortunately this is all part of choosing an affiliate program, if the payment system does not suit you then contact them and see if there are more options. Sometimes they just need to be asked about Paypal and next thing you know it is another form of payment… If they do not, then do not feel obligated to sign up and deal with a dodgy payment system…

I have always been surprised when big, big, affiliate programs such as Adsense or Adbrite do not accept this..? I know i promote Adbrite myself on here and it is its major frustrating element… What i don’t get the most is, it would be such a simple solution change to accept this form of payment, but anyway that is life… A better stop rambling on this now hey, if you want your say on this comment below…
