One of the many perks of using Kickbooster's referral tool is that you don't need to worry about managing payouts to your affiliates, we take care of that for you!

In an effort to follow the payment processes you experience with Kickstarter and Indiegogo, we have a couple different billing schedules depending on the type of campaign you're running.

Kickstarter + Indiegogo (Flex + Fixed Funding)

Kickstarter and Indiegogo will disperse your funds within a few weeks after successfully completing your campaign. 

Kickbooster will issue your affiliate fees invoice shortly after your campaign.

For your convenience, we automatically charge the card on file 21 days after issuing the invoice, allowing time for you to receive funds from Kickstarter or Indiegogo.

If you want to make payment before then, you can log into your account and process payment for the invoice at any time. Your affiliates will be very pleased with the prompt payment!

Indiegogo InDemand

Indiegogo will disperse your funds to you ever 4 weeks. For that reason, Kickbooster will issue you a monthly invoice for all pledges made 4 weeks prior. Payment will automatically be charged upon issuing the invoice.  

If you end your Indiegogo InDemand campaign, we will issue a final invoice for your affiliate fees at this time and charge you 21 days later, allowing time for you to get your funds from Indiegogo. 

When will my affiliates receive their commissions?

We payout affiliate commissions on the 1st and 15th or following business day every month and the expected payout date depends on when we receive payment for your affiliate fees.

Payout for the 1st

  • Includes commissions where payment for affiliate fees are received from the 6th - 20th of the previous month

Payout for the 15th

  • Includes commissions where payment for affiliate fees are received from the previous 21st - 5th of the current month.

Important Reminders

  1. If your payment from Kickstarter or Indiegogo is delayed, Kickbooster will proceed to invoice and process your payment. We make a strong attempt to follow the billing cycle of these platforms but do not track the actual payment disbursements made to campaign owners.

  2. Affiliates are required to provide a valid PayPal email address in order to receive their commissions and must have a minimum payout balance of $20. You can learn more about our commission payout process here.

  3. The payment amount for each pay period is determined 10 days before the payment date and is displayed on the affiliate's dashboard as their "Next Payment".

  4. Commissions will not be paid until your payment has been received, so please do not leave your affiliates hanging!
