We're excited to announce that affiliate marketing giant ClickSure will be the latest company to offer bitcoin payouts via BitPay.

ClickSure is one of the largest affiliate marketplaces in the world, providing advertisers and vendors with a powerful platform for driving more revenue through affiliate marketing contributions. Unlike traditional networks, ClickSure believes in the power of connecting online marketers, introducing advertisers and vendors to over 460,000 affiliates through its self-service platform. Clicksure empowers affiliates and businesses to start collaborating without the usual roadblocks of a middleman and focus on growing their business.

We reached out to ClickSure because we see tremendous potential for bitcoin to solve a common payment problem in the affiliate space – how to pay affiliates distributed around the globe. Bitcoin allows companies to sidestep the high fees and multiple settlement steps of traditional mass payout methods.

Clicksure agrees. Here’s why they decided to make the move to allow their 460,000 affiliates to receive payouts in bitcoin:

"We wanted to provide multiple payout options for our clients due to the simple fact there is not a ‘one-fits-all’ payment solution that is suitable for everyone. Our affiliates are based in all ‘4 corners of the world’ and we are seeing a growing trend of users looking to explore alternative payment options, that offer more than what they get with the traditional payment methods. BitPay's bitcoin payouts provide a faster and less costly way for ClickSure affiliates to get paid out their sales commissions." – ClickSure Communications Manager Ben Marshall

If you're a ClickSure affiliate, you can now choose to withdraw your funds via bitcoin, in addition to ClickSure’s Global Bank Transfer and prepaid card load payout options. To request bitcoin as a payout option, simply contact your ClickSure account manager for more details on how to set this up.

If you don't have a bitcoin wallet yet and need a secure way to hold and receive your funds, you can download the BitPay wallet on any major mobile or desktop platform.

ClickSure is a forward thinker in a space which is just as native to the internet as bitcoin. We look forward to working with them as they roll out this fast, secure, international option for paying out clients.
