Help Centre for Publishers - How and when will I get paid?

As zanox publisher you will receive commissions for a purchase, lead, subscription, or other actions performed after the user clicks on a banner or link on your website.

Commissions you earn for your publisher activities in the zanox affiliate network are issued as credit notes and paid into your publisher payment account on a monthly basis. The monthly payout includes only commissions for those leads and sales that the advertiser has confirmed by the 1st of each month.

Eligibility for payment

To be eligible for payment you have to:

meet the minimum payment amount you set up for your payment account.


authorise your credit note by the 9th of each month.


If you do not meet the minimum payment amount or do not authorise the credit note in time, your commissions will roll over to the next month.

How to authorise your credit notes

In the account switcher at the top of the page, select Settings > Payment and click on the Credit Notes tab to view a list of all credit notes that have been issued until now. Select the latest credit note you want to authorise and click on the status link Authorise. Check the credit note content in the Authorise Payment window and authorise the credit note if all details are correct.

The authorisation status changes to "Authorised" and zanox will now proceed to pay the money into your account. zanox will also generate a PDF file of your credit note and make it available for download on the Credit Notes tab.

NOTE: If you are VAT registered publisher according to German UstG, your PDF will be digitally signed and also sent to your e-mail address. You must check the digital signature of the credit note PDF file and archive both the PDF file and verification report in a digital form, acceptable for auditing purposes for a period of 10 years.
