When someone signs up to your affiliate program, you have the option to trigger an email to them, inviting them to access to their own dashboard where they can track their sales and payouts. This email can be sent with Social Snowball's out-of-the-box emails, or with Klaviyo by using our Klaviyo integration.
Giving affiliates access to a dashboard is optional.
As the merchant, you have the ability to choose which payout methods you would like to offer to your affiliates. Whichever ones you select in your dashboard will show up in the affiliates dashboard in their settings tab.
If you are sending payouts with the Tremendous integration, affiliates won't have to ever log in to their dashboard for you to be able to send them payouts, since payouts are sent via email.
