The recommendation is for more experienced publishers and marketers to use AvanGate, however, with a little learning, publishers of any kind can quickly learn how to navigate the site.
How to get paid: Payment from AvanGate can be made via various methods, including PayPal and direct deposits. There is a minimum payout amount of $100, which usually is not an issue due to the company’s generally high commission rates.
The form of payment: AvanGate (2Checkout) provides its users with payments based on a variation of both Cost-Per-Sale (CPS) and Cost-Per-Action (CPA) models. Commissions, however, play a significant role in the revenue of publishers who make use of this platform.
