How MaxBounty works
If you want to work with the program, you need to fill in the application form on the website. While many other CPA networks automatically approve all webmasters, the MaxBounty staff are checking candidates. The company wants its partners to have certain experience in affiliate marketing. Your approval is more likely if you have a website having its own domain name (not a subdomain) and which was registered and published at least several months ago, that is, not a totally “fresh resource”. A manager of the affiliate program is likely to call you within several days to interview you on the phone. They should know which marketing and promotional tools you are going to use. After approval, you will be able to go to your account and see links to CPA offers you are interested in promoting.
There are some sample questions webmasters are asked during an interview:
- For how long have you worked with affiliate marketing?
- What network are you working with?
- What promotion tools are you using?
- Why do you choose Maxbounty?
- What offers are you looking for?
You should speak English fluently to honestly answer these questions.
Start of working with Maxbounty
After the approval of your partnership with MaxBounty, you are able to choose offers and create affiliate links. Then, you choose banners and place them on your resources.
The network makes monthly payments to affiliates in the middle of the month. For instance, if you made the required amount in January, you will get your payment on February 15. As soon as you get your first payment, you will be automatically included in the monthly payment schedule.
The minimum amount for withdrawal is $100. If you haven’t reached this threshold, your income would be transferred to the next payment period. MaxBounty is also offering new affiliates a US $1000 bonus if they make at least $1000 a month during the first three months of working in the network. You can get your bonus on the 4th month. You can also make money on the referral program: for each invited webmaster a partner is getting 5% of their income during a year. MaxBounty is paying to its partners by checks, PayPal, Intercash, eCheck, ACH, Wire and Bitcoin; however, available options depend on the webmaster’s country of residence. All payments are made in US dollars, but still, you can get your payments in your national currency in a local bank if you choose payments by checks.
