In this Infusionsoft vs CloudNet360 comparison video, I will show you why infusionsoft is very confusing while trying to set up your affiliate campaign or program. And on the contrary, you will find CloudNet360 platform is very easy to navigate and set up your affiliate campaign.
One more reason why our philosophy of making a user-friendly, easy to navigate and simple yet complete business automation software made CloudNet360 the Best Small Business Automation available in the market.
This SamCart review video is quick, directly to the point, and shows you exactly why using SamCart as your online shopping cart for your small business is going to cost you a lot more than meets the eye.
For starters, the SamCart price is not the “full price”… Nope, the SamCart price is a “portion” of the price you’ll pay to use SamCart because SamCart is only a portion of the full solution needed to run a bare minimum online business.
SamCart is dependent upon you purchasing another 3rd party service and then connecting SamCart to this service via API in order to perform the most basic functions of ecommerce.
This “frankenstein” model used to be the rage, but so were bell bottoms and bouffant hair back in the 60’s and 70’s. Today, a modern shopping cart needs to have everything built-in, already integrated and ready to go on day 1.
If you’d like to see what a truly modern, self contained and fully automated system looks like today, then take a 30-day trial and learn how CloudNet360 helps you sell more… faster!
We’ve all heard the old saying, “there are only 2 things guaranteed in life – Death & Taxes”.
But as a business owner, you know 1st hand that paying your taxes is only the tip of the tax burden iceberg because you also need to comply with a labyrinth of additional form filings and regulations.
It’s those sneaky “hidden costs” of IRS compliance that can really add up in both time and money (especially when you screw something up).
And one of the biggest headaches online merchants suffer with is the W9 management and ensuring that every affiliate you pay has an up-to-date W9 completed and on file. Making a mistake here can be extremely expensive as you’re responsible for paying the taxes for your affiliates if you don’t manage this correctly.
But you know, at CloudNet360, we’re not the type to leave our merchants hanging and let them suffer with the difficult management burden without coming up with an ingenious solution that allows you to remove this hassle from your “to do” list.
Here’s how we solved this problem for you.
1. Affiliate Signup – We allow your affiliates to sign up and start selling your products without hassling them for a W9. After all, the more obstacles you place in front of an affiliate, the less likely they are to actually sell for you.
2. Affiliate Sales Success – Once your affiliate successfully sells your product, and you now owe them commission, they will receive a W9 request message every time they log into their affiliate account.This message will inform them that they have money waiting to be paid to them so they are now very motivated to get that W9 into your hands.
The message also provides them with explicit instructions on how you want the W9 delivered along with a “quick link” to the W9 form (we make it as foolproof as possible to ensure this gets done).
3. Submission Completion – Once the W9 is safely in your hands, you can click a check box for that affiliate and tell PWC that you have the completed form. This will stop the message from appearing in their account.
4. Affiliate Payment – When paying your affiliates using our “Affiliate Easy Pay” system, you have the option of only paying affiliates with W9 forms on file (highly recommended).
Now you have your affiliate W9 management system covered from sign up to commission payment …could it get any easier or well thought out than this? An easy online shopping cart doesn’t have to be a “basic shopping cart” and you don’t need to settle when you can use a CloudNet360.com. More than a cart, it’s a complete marketing solution.
And even the folks that know the difference still seem to struggle with understanding how a 2nd tier affiliate is created and when they get paid.
