Zaxaa - New Paypal Instant Commission Platform

by 70 replies
WarriorPlus and JVZoo have been taking a lot of heat lately for emailing product owner's buyers. They have optout mechanisms in place, but there are owners that don't even want those mechanisms to exist in the first place.

It looks like someone was listening.

Zaxaa is a new payment processing platform that promises to never mail any of your customers. It's also free (for a limited time) and offers Instant Paypal Commissions like the others.

The guy behind it is Welly Mulia from ProfitsTheme.

If you've been looking for a new platform to hang your hat, take a look.

I have zero affiliation. I'm simply providing some alternate solutions for the weary.

    So, there is a new competitor in town. That's good. As for affiliates like me, there is a new marketplace for finding more products and promoting them.

    Thanks for sharing this new resource.

    As the risk of sounding self-promotional, our Digibilly Instant Payment Gateway system does not email merchant's customers or act as an affiliate either. Never has and never will - just saying...

    Competition like this is certainly good for the marketplace.

    I'm not saying those other networks are doing anything wrong by emailing their customers new offers but it certainly makes it much less competitive when your list is not going to be sent out daily offers from the very platform you sell your product through.

    Good to see others listening to marketplace concerns and creating new options to address those concerns.

    Zaxaa is a new affiliate network, it is still in beta version. I have a product that is in the marketplace zaxaa, and already sold with one sales.

    Indeed zaxaa marketplace is still not so much the product being sold.
    The features I love about my zaxaa is able to integrate with affiliate networks such as Digiresult and PayDotCom. It can integrated with Clickbank but I don't try it yet

    Zaxxa can also integrate with JVZoo yet it still fails when I try it. I only integrated it with Digiresult and PayDotCom. So we can have one landing page with a variety of affiliate networks.

    Thanks For the great site. When I took a look at their homepage, I Knew this is going to be big!, i mean they are so curious and excited about their business that they are giving away a valuable membership for no cost.this is MUST because as in the world of competition they have to do something more to promote their site fast.

    I don't know anything about the service and this was encouraging "We, Zaxaa, are purely a platform" and don't try to be a competing affiliate - but of course I want straight to the legal terms and saw this:

    • We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
    • From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.

    Looks like the same old crap.

    When I buy shoes at Macys using my credit card, Visa and my bank make money off the transaction. They don't take my private information to email me products, and certainly not products from Macy's competitors.

    Some of the services used in the WSO section have very helpful features. But marketers creating products ultimately designed to make affiliate commissions for themselves, in addition to transactional fees, is a conflict of interest with their customers selling products and with their affiliates.

      Doesn't this refer to the VENDOR? ...and not the Vendor's customers?

      We used a standard template for the legal pages, and did not check thoroughly, hence missed that part.

      We'll be correcting the first point to refer to product Sellers/Vendors only.

      I don't see anything wrong with the second point. For example, we (Zaxaa) might contact you to ask for feedback on how we can make the platform better.

      For Sellers, we could be asking if there are any new features/improvements that they'd like to see.

      For Affiliates, we could be asking if the tracking or reporting of commissions can be improved.

      For Customers, we could be asking their opinions about the checkout/buying process when they purchase products and what can be done to improve it?

      Like what we stated on our site, Zaxaa is purely a platform.

      You missed the point. They say that they aren't going to email your client with offers from them or others. What you quoted just allows them to contact you with new stuff from them.

    It also says:

    "whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you do not want the information to be used by anybody for direct marketing purposes

    if you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by contacting us at Zaxaa Support

    Then I went and looked at my own Privacy Policy and realized it could be interpreted the same way, so I'm going to change it to make it clear.

      Ahh, will also change this to make it clear it's for product Sellers only. Thanks for the heads up.

    Great ... another "instant commission" platform for criminals to work from with their stolen credit cards. I would NEVER pay an affiliate an instant commission again after doing it and getting 6 chargebacks in my Paypal account within 2 days from affiliates buying my product with stolen credit cards so they could get the commission. Thanks, but no thanks.

      I agree. On my first WSO using instant commissions I didn't really pay much attention to who I approve. After getting several chargebacks from these criminals I started being very strict on my approval process. Honestly, I LOVE having my own affiliate program (I use PostAffiliatePro) where I manually pay out affiliates after the refund period and have total flexibility.

      I wish these networks would have the option for delayed affiliate payouts.

      Edit: Just saw the post above, thanks for clarifying Might be using you guys soon.

    Zaxaa has a ton of features they offer to combat the competition and a very simplistic dashboard to boot. Their products are pretty much top notch so this delivery system should be no exception. It’s in beta mode right now but one to keep your eye on if only to use it now while it’s free.

    No more waiting to get paid (INSTANT payout)
    Does it have an option for delaying payment for 45-60 days or is Instant Payment mandatory?

    and
    Customers who want to refund will contact the product owners directly instead of contacting you.
    So how are affiliate commissions refunded for products with a refund that an affiliate has already been paid a commission?

      Assuming they used the API, affiliates have to give permission via PayPal to allow refunds of individual transactions processed through the system.

      So, when the merchant issues the customer a refund, first Paypal refunds the affiliate payment to the merchant and then the original full payment to the customer.
    • Profile picture of the author wellymulia
      The default setting is affiliates' commissions are delayed AFTER the refund period for your product has expired. For example, if your product has a 30 day refund period, the commissions are paid after 30 days from the date of transaction.

      You can MANUALLY decide which affiliates you want to grant instant commissions to. We recommend only granting those whom you knew well and has previous good working relationships before allowing them instant commissions.

      When product sellers process refunds, the commissions that have already been paid to the affiliates are automatically returned back to the seller. This is possible because before an affiliate can promote your product, they need to link their paypal account with Zaxaa and grant permissions to us so that we can retrieve the commissions automatially.

    Zaxaa looks good.But the instant commission is what makes me sick when affiliates gets the money and they run away if there are any refunds.Other than this,i found the network really good.Lets see whats the scene in the future.

      There are different ways to approach the issue.

      - Have a no refund policy, or a refund policy that is not a free-for-all, any reason goes policy.

      - Decide as a business decision to eat the commission so there is nothing to be sick about. For instance, a common practice if I issue a refund for a WSO is to pay it out of my pocket outside of the PayPal API. The affiliate returns nothing. I also reject most affiliate requests to try and get better referrals and avoid problems.

    Our members have used Zaxaa as an "add on" platform since it started.

    The GUI/Interface/Admin and way the system works is very refreshing.

    There are a few issues with refunds of instant payments to affiliates etc etc but we have always controlled this with a simple inhouse mysql that is updated by a spreadsheet of sales, that way if an affiliate gets flighty and drops off the face of the planet when they are asked/emailed etc etc to do a refund, we already know to turn them off/get some $$$£ off them/blacklist them everywhere

    All in all, Zaxaa is "Welly" Good!

    Maybe Welly will change that. I just set up couple products in there and it's really user friendly. Like it...

    Currently your products must have a refund policy. However, we do listen to suggestions/feedback.

    You can vote if you don't want a mandatory refund policy for your product:
    Open up the refund period setting...

      Just signed up for Zaxaa. Can hardly believe all they offer for FREE
      The Zaxaa site mentions that it will only be Free for a limited time so I would suggest jumping on this!
