Affiliate Summit is one of the most anticipated events of the year for Internet marketers, and 2013’s event was definitely one for the record books. With hundreds of affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and networks in attendance, TheMail was fortunate to meet and interview people from all walks of the industry. For all of our exclusive video interviews from ASE 2013, visit our Affiliate Summit hub HERE.
PayGrip is a payment processing platform that claims to be “the most powerful in the world,” so when we met up with CEO Jud Smith at Affiliate Summit in Philadelphia, we were curious to find out how it all worked. In his brief interview, Jud explained the process a bit, and also told us how PayGrip helps build residual income for affiliates.
“We mitigate the risk of most merchant accounts that are miscategorized [sic] with other processors and we correctly categorize them as lower risk than what they actually are,” Smith explained. “But the bigger part behind that is that I build residual incomes for the affiliates.”
When asked how Pay Grip does this, Jud told us that PayGrip encourages affiliates to send them any contacts or clients that have experienced processing problems before, and then work through those issues in the “underwriting process.”
“We try to educate for the future, we try to help the merchant or affiliate sell more products online as well.”
