Managing Affiliate Paypal Accounts
As detailed in our article Affiliate Compensation, affiliates can be paid via Paypal. When an affiliate signs up to your program, the email address provided will also be treated as their Paypal account's email address by default. However, this leaves a vital question on how their Paypal details can be changed. This article aims to answer that question.

Manually editing Paypal accounts
When you create an affiliate manually, or when one already exists in your system, the option to edit their account is always available. As shown below, you can set their Paypal email address there. If it is left blank, it will resume the default of the LeadDyno affiliate account's email address.
- Select an affiliate from the affiliates page;
- Select the Edit button;
- Enter a new Paypal email address;
- Click Save Affiliate.
Allowing affiliates to set their own Paypal account
You can also enable some settings that let affiliates manage their Paypal accounts by themselves. They can do this in the affiliate dashboard.
- Head over to the Dashboard Customization page;
- Enable the setting Allow Affiliates To Update Paypal Email;
- Click on Save Changes.
Now your affiliates will be able to update their Paypal email in the affiliate dashboard.
Request Paypal email address at signup
If you wish to request the PayPal email address from your affiliates when they sign up for your affiliate program, this can be done by:
- Heading over to the Dashboard Customization page;
- Enabling the Request Paypal email address on signup form option;
- Clicking on Save Changes.
And that's it! Now, you will be able to collect the PayPal email address of your affiliates at signup.
