When a Vendor creates a new product or service, it does NOT show in the marketplace until it has made 1 sale. This is to protect the integrity of the marketplace from junk listings, spam listings, and test products etc..
Also, if NO SALE MADE FOR 120 DAYS, you get unlisted from the marketplace until another sale is made. This is to keep the marketplace fresh with current selling hot products and services.
I have made my first sale, but my product hasn't shown up in the Marketplace yet - how long does this take?
After a sale is made, products show instantly in the Marketplace, HOWEVER - if it does not show, here are some reasons.
a) Wrong code used
You must make absolute sure that you are using a the html button code we provide for your PayDotCom payment button on your sales page. You can not use a PayPal button code made from PayPal or software. PayDotCom.com can only track your sale when it is generated through the proper channels by using the proper button. There is a wide variety of buttons styles to choose from, with the codes to add to your sales page.
b) You have it checked not to show in marketplace
You need to click on My Products, then EDIT, and make sure you have the box checks to [x] show in marketplace
a) sale less than $1
PayDotCom.com does not consider any sale under $1 to be a sale. We view it as a test and it will not show or charge a fee.
Can I promote 3rd party affiliate programs in the marketplace?
No. You many not promote any affiliate programs through PayDotCom.com. Either in the marketplace or even as a product not in the marketplace. Any product sold through PayDotCom.com must be a product or service you created, or a product or service that you have rights to sell.
If you are not the creator, author, or have obtained the rights to sell the item then you may not list it with our service.
If you are an affiliate for any 3rd party program, you may not promote it through PayDotCom.com or our marketplace.
Why would I want to have an item NOT show in the marketplace?
Maybe you want to make a Joint Venture offer to someone at 75%. You have a normal sales page for 50%, but you want to make a new page for your JV partners at 75%. But, when a sale is made, you do not want this to show in the marketplace to the public, or you may get some people to signup at 75% instead of 50%. You will also have it listed 2 x in the marketplace and that will be confusion.
Can I offer higher payout percentages to only my JV' Partners?
Yes. After you make your normal product. Make a new one just like it. But make this % higher. You can even have it point to the same exact sales page. You do not even have to add new order buttons to the page. You can use the order buttons from the original non JV product you created at the normal percentage.
Next, choose NOT to list in marketplace. You do not want the public to see this, they will just bypass your regular affiliate program. Then, make an affiliate page for it. Grab your affiliate link URL we provide you. Then share that URL (link) with your JV partner to signup.
Can I add more than one product to a page or make a marketplace of my products?
Yes. Just add the buttons to the page. If promoted by an affiliate he will get paid for any purchase. Also, the main page promoted or the marketplace you make, must be a product at PayDotCom, then you can all your other products there you like. - You affiliate must promote his link and not the sales page directly.
Paying and Collecting Affiliate Commission Questions...
Can I earn commission if I purchase using my own affiliate link?
Affiliates cannot purchase Marketplace products using their own affiliate links. In any instance where an affiliate purchases from his/her own affiliate link, commission will default to the vendor who owns the product. The PayDotCom script is designed to do this automatically, thus preventing affiliates from abusing the system.

How long is my affiliate id tracked if they do not buy, yet come back later?
If you promote your affiliate link and they do not buy that day, it will track your sale for any period of time. Even if the buyer comes back to that page years later you still get paid. Even if they do not use your link and just type the domain URL because that was all they remembered, you still get paid.
Note: Your id will be replaced by any affiliate that promotes the site to the same customer after you. We only reward the last affiliate, not the first, for the sale. So if you did the last promotion, then it should be you that gets the credit.
You will need a PayPal account to receive payments or commissions. If you do not have one you need to get one. If you can not get one you can not use the vendor function. You can be an affiliate but only to those vendors that agree to mail checks to their affiliates.
