New Order Page at Wealthy Affiliate, New Payment Options!

Last Update: January 10, 2019

Hi Everyone,

There has been some confusion lately about the order process here at WA so I thought I would take a moment to clarify things...as well as showcase the brand new order page and payment platform here at WA.

A few weeks ago we rolled out a brand new order page that we have been working on for some time. The new payment page has several new updates.

(1) Brand New Payment Options

The first major update was the additional payment options that are available to EVERYONE, Starter or Premium.

Formerly, as a Starter member you were forced into purchasing the first month $19 discount (if you joined in the first 7 days), or $49 if you purchased beyond that. There were MANY requests to go yearly right away, so we felt it was a good idea to offer this to everyone right away.

We also have had many requests over the years for a shorter term purchase, as in "half a year". So we have also introduced the 6-Month Membership option to the mix. As a member you now have the choice between monthly, 6 months and yearly.

Here is what the new order page options look like.


You can see it for yourself here (and can even change your membership type if you like):

==> View Order Page Here

The longer the membership term you purchase at once, the greater the discount. Monthly is $49 per month, 6 Month is $234 (which works out to $39 per month) and Yearly is $359 (which works out to be $29.92 per month).

(2) You Can Now Purchase With WA Credits

We have introduced a new payment type, WA Credits. You can now use "cash credits" that you either earn through the platform here at WA, earn through the affiliate program, or that you purchase to pay for your membership.

This is going to allow people with "prepaid" cards to now join. Traditionally it is very difficult to pay for recurring memberships with prepaid cards because merchants don't allow for it. So now someone can buy cash credits, and then apply those to a membership.

We had many affiliates and those earning cash credits within the platform request this as well. Not to mention those that were looking to "gift" a membership, you can now do this by sending someone cash credits through the Credit page, and they can then purchase a membership.

(3) Much More Robust Code

The code base and how the payment processes work were due for an update. There are many cases that are now accounted for that weren't before, and we reprogrammed the code base with a focus on security and further efficiency.

(4) Newfound Affiliate Opportunity

Affiliates have been wanted to have a yearly option for many years now that they could promote out of the gate. Now you can.

Instead of earning $8 per sale (on a $19 first month offer), now you can build the 6 months and yearly into your marketing and earn $108 and $175 commissions respectively. It doesn't take too many sales like this to be earning a full time income online.


So there you have it, the official update on the brand new order page here at WA. There are going to be subsequent updates and iterative improvements to this platform that we are really excited about. We will be updating folks with respect to this.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback in respect to the new order page, affiliate side, or the upgrade procedures, let me know below and I will be happy to help you out. I would love to hear your feedback as to the design of the page as well!

Awesomeness. WA credits can now purchase a yearly membership.

The new order page looks spanking, indeed.

One concern though in regards to those with the free starter membership. Where do they purchase level 3 and level 4 for $100?

Other than that, we are making great progress, Kyle.

Wish you health and success for 2019.

Blessings

Just one more request, Can you open 7-Day free trial to India as well? Digital market has started booming there in all major cities. Becoming premium or not, is secondary, but they will surely be thankful for 7-day free trial, it's something they won't get anywhere.

In fact, I joined WA when I was offered $19 first month trial. Last year even this facility was not available to Indians, it was $49 even for the first month. So I procrastinated a lot, even dropped the idea of joining this platform. But with this regular and uniform pricing, I am glad. And, obviously loving this platform.

Hello Tom,
I was saying that 7 days free trial is not available in all countries, including India. So I was requesting Kyle to offer this free trial to everyone.

Hello Kyle, I decided to make the annual payment. But as I do if I do not get the loan on time before the deadline. What options do I have if I can no longer enter the site that will be blocked because I do not pay on time? I am looking forward to your response. kindly
Reply
merlynmac Premium
So, although you will lose access on your renewal date, your site will remain up to 30 days before it is removed. If your loan will come before then you should be fine.

Thanks, Merly even though I do not know you. That means that I can still enter my site with my password and find the link to pay although the courses will be blocked. Did I understand correctly.

I’m not sure if you’ll be able to login and manage your site but your site will remain up so visitors can reach it.

You cannot manage your sites through SiteManager if you quit, but they will still be live for 30 days (you can log into them directly, just not through WA).

Then if you resubscribe during that time, you will be able to reconnect your entire profile here, including all of your website/domains/followers/interaction/etc.

I liked the comment given to MoMo. I am going by my means of paying monthly for now. Later down the line I will opt for 6 months or yearly. This reminds me with my P.O. Box. They only give me a choice to pay every 6 months or yearly. I scrap up enough money to do it yearly because when I pay for 6 months it comes around so fast before you know it you're back to paying again. Money wise I will see what I can scrap up.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, the yearly is the best option in terms of financial incentive, but for others the monthly and 6 month option are preferable. This gives people all the options they could possibly want and they can choose accordingly.

Great to see it's official! The best part about the 6 month commissions is that it's instantly approved and not pending (or has that changed, Kyle?) for 30 days so you can quickly make a hundred bucks+ commissions and that's incredible news that's not mentioned above! :)

Can't wait to meet you guys!

Yes, we are considering all the feedback we get. From people wanting to pay for longer terms out of the gate, something in the middle (like the 6 month) and people having payment issues or that are wanting to gift memberships (the ability to pay with credits).

The thing is, we evolve WA based on what YOU want. We communicate with 100,000's of people every year so we get a great deal of feedback that we can leverage to improve the platform here at WA.

Kyle, the new upgrade page you've linked to doesn't have the affiliate link option at the top, and the premium promo link doesn't link to this page.

How do we get an affiliate link to go directly to a page that shows the three premium options - whether they're a starter, a premium or not a starter yet? I want to be able to promote premium membership online, just just with my current referrals.

Take your unique ID that you get from your other affiliate links here (the ?a_aid=XXXXXXXX) part and add it to the end of the upgrade URL (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade). That should work for you...

Thank you so much, Kyle, at last, you answered my question.

Now my problem is that I wanted to pay my Premiership with WA cash credits but I have already converted all of them to US$ expecting that I was going to be paid on 1 January, unfortunately, I was not paid because my country does not receive PayPal payments. I was not aware of it.

Now my due date to pay WA Premiership is now and I don't have any money. The converted credits were enough to subscribe.

I just wish I could convert the US$ back to cash credits :(

I have never faced any financial problem to an extent of failing to raise my subscriptions since I joined WA almost 9 months ago. I am really frustrated.

Now I am trying to find a friend who is outside my country so that I use his PayPal account in order to receive Wealthy Affiliate commissions, besides that, I cannot receive any commissions whether from WA OR any Affiliate program
My main worry, however, is how I am going to pay my premiership before I am deactivated.

Will really appreciate advise if there is any way round

Thank you once again for providing the community with such awesome options. I am impressed.

If you have credits or affiliate income, send Carson a PM and he will be able to help you out here and get these converted to credits.

You can drop Carson a PM from within his profile at any time:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/carson

At the top of the page you will see a Private Message button, click that and go through the steps and you can send him a PM. As a Premium member you have this one-on-one mentorship and coaching access. :)

Thank you so much, Kyle, now I have a sigh of relief that I can pay for my WA premium this month.

I have sent Carson a PM, HOPE he is going to respond in time because my WA account will be deactivated in two days time if I fail to subscribe.
But I know with you guys I am always on the winning side :)

Proud to be a WA member

Hi Kyle - thanks for clarifying this. Can we swap from one payment option to another on a month by month basis? So, if I know in advance that I have enough credits to cover the monthly fee, that is how I pay. But if next month I haven't, swap back to PayPal or credit card? And if so, does this have to be done within a certain time frame or literally just the day before the payment is due? Cheers, Diane

Kyle Premium
Well 6 months and yearly are not month to month, you pay for the term at the time of purchase. You can change your payment schedule/term though, you can move to yearly from monthly, and then as your yearly is about to recur, back down to monthly .

DianeScorpio Premium
Thank you Kyle. I pay monthly so what I meant was, can I pay perhaps my next month with credits if I have enough? But then pay the following month by PayPal if I don't have enough credits? And swap between the two whenever I want? Loving my journey here by the way!

Good Morning Kyle. I need clarification regarding your new payment options(which I think are great!) If someone were to choose the 6 month plan for 234.00, is the total amount due at that time or is someone able to pay the 39.00 per month vs. paying the monthly fee of 49.00. This would also apply to the yearly membership.(29.92 per month or pay the total amount of 359.00 in a one time payment). Many thanks for your follow up and clarification.

Kyle Premium
These are "all at once" payments. If you want to upgrade to 6 month, it is a payment of $234.

This is great Kyle thanks for the update

but I have a request,can you please add other payment methods on WA like western union or payoneer I am having a challenge here my Country does not support receiving money with PayPal we only send but we don't have the receive option. That's why I managed to pay for my premium.

So if I earn my commissions in future I will struggle to withdraw. Receiving it by check is not favourable here so maybe I will have to travel across boarders to neighboring countries just to withdraw my commissions with PayPal.

I joined WA regardless of the payment methods because I didn't want to miss out the lessons you give here.

I hope you will consider this request and make things easier for me and other members who are experiencing the same challenge.

Stay blessed

We are considering other options, but we have to be careful about fraud which those two payment platforms you mentioned are synonymous for.

Hey Kyle! Thanks for the official acknowledgment of the new payment plan that I had heard about.

Please excuse me for asking the following if you have answered this already in the comments below, too tired to check myself.

Currently as WA affiliates we have to wait 30 days for yearly membership commissions to clear the payment process. Will we have to wait for the 6-month plan commission?

Hi Robert

Littlemama did her blog post on the 6 months plan when she first found out and there was an instant commission when someone took the 6-month option.

She has posted images on that post


This is her post. Hope that helps but still would be a great confirmation anyway.

affiliates,

did you see what I saw?

the new payment option is really smart, how?

it gives the option to pay the consumed money from your long payment!

Wow, how smart it is. so any time, you can pay small amount of money to avoid any hardship near the due date of renewing the plan.

this is more than I dream.

Kyle, thank you for the information.
The six month plan will open an avenue for those on a budget not open to the annual payment. Still saving money.

Not clear about the Credit page, but I am sure as I go through more training it will come out.

You have created a great opportunity here, at WA, for all of us. An opportunity for all who take the chance to become part of your dream.

Best wishes and success for 2019,

Yeah, credits are an internal currency here at WA. You can earn them through various platforms (SiteComments, Affiliate Program, Training), and then you can reuse these to purchase things within the community (SiteComments, SiteFeedback, Domains, and NOW the WA membership).

I hope this clarifies for you here.

Thanks for the update, Kyle! This is good to know all of the options we have here to pay for Premium membership...I think these options will help many who can't quite afford the whole year subscription all at once.

Also from my understanding anyways, if for some reason someone that is yearly already can't afford the whole year when it's time to renew, they can switch to an option they can afford at the time...am I seeing that right? That's adding even more awesomeness to this update if so!

Awesome updates as usual, thanks for sharing!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi Kyle, thanks for the clarification. I think there was one thing that had the people confused and that was, can people just go to level 3 and four without going through one and two first? I'm talking about starter members being able to pay for levels three and four. Have a great day

I would take it that starter members who go premium can do the full training.

Why would anyone want to skip the two most important levels of training? Or did I misinterpret your question?

What's the fine print below yearly?
$29.99 per month?
REBILLS @ $359.00 per year, I think
your only having the monthly payments
for a short period? Is this the scoop? If
so i will be saying goodbye again. Some
people can't afford $359.00 @ once.
I think this really not fair, i was just
getting back into it. Plus i just paid
$65.00 for a non refundable SEO package.
Thanks,
Donna

If you go yearly then it is one lump sum once per year. If you don't want the yearly plan then don't choose the yearly plan. What is the issue?

Donna the $29.92 shows you the saving compared to the 6 month which works out to $39 or $49 for the monthly.

This shows you the added saving per month depending on which plan you take.

So if you can't afford yearly at $359 which as shown works out the cheapest go and $49 per month is too much for you then take the 6 monthly.

If you have enough cash credits you can take that option as well. No one is forcing to take the yearly choose the plan you can afford at the moment.

As for this non-refundable SEO Package for $65 you paid for that was your choice it has nothing to do with WA.

Make your own choice which is best for you beside you have many benefits WA gives to it's members where you need to pay more elsewhere.

I wish you well in whatever choice you make in life,

The way i read that is will be billed the
total.

Hi Donna,

$359.00 per year is equivalent to $29.99 per month. That is what the fine print is below the yearly cost. WA will still have the monthly payment option at $49 per month and have introduced a new 6-monthly option at $234 (equivalent to $39 per month).

Nothing has changed for you paying monthly if that is your choice. I encourage you to get back into it if you are thinking of pulling out.

Not sure what the SEO package is but I expect it is an upgrade to a Pro version of a WordPress plugin. Probably not needed but, if it is non-refundable, use it to the best of your ability.

Wishing you every success in 2019 and beyond,

Gary

I was not trying to be rude, I was really curious as to the issue. Do you have a yearly plan? If so, it is clear that it is paid all at once, once per year. That is how a yearly plan works. If you are not a yearly member then it is irrelevant. I won't apologize to the fact that you took my response as me being a smart "you know what".

Good day to you.

No one is trying you to feel like crap sure perhaps you can't afford the yearly option and yes for some it can be difficult to pay that much in one hit that is why the other options are available.

I did explain to you the breakdown of what it would cost on a monthly basis compared to the various plans as did someone else.

Take whatever option you can and go with that if it's the $49 per month and you can do it they go for it.

Yes apart from the $49 per month those other amounts are billed in full it is just showing the difference on a monthly saving compared to the $49 per month should you go monthly.

No one is saying you have to go yearly again that is your choice and your choice only.

Remember you left once but came back and if need be you can leave and come back again if you wish should you find some extra cash to go and give it another go.

Yes, they are other members here that have a disability of various type some have done well some are struggling that is understandable.

While you are a premium member take the opportunity to promote what you do if needed revisit some lessons from Kyle just do what you can for yourself, not for others.

We are all here help each other not to downgrade someone.

Perhaps at times it made be taken as negative but it is not.

I really do wish you the best in whatever decision you make and would love to hear you are staying.

The rebills is the payment when your renewal is due so if you took whatever plan and joined today they that is the amount you would pay a year from now.

If you go to the order page Kyle has provided whatever plan you currently have will show the re-bills.

If you click on another option again it will show the re-bills for that payment options
The only reason the image above show rebills for the year is that is because it was selected at the time.

If you are taking the 6 months then at the end of 6 months that is what you will be playing again, in this case, $234 and it does state $234 for 6 months

Kyle did mention this above but here it is again in case you missed it.

"The longer the membership term you purchase at once, the greater the discount. Monthly is $49 per month, 6 Month is $234 (which works out to $39 per month) and Yearly is $359 (which works out to be $29.92 per month)."

Hope that helps Donna

I like the idea of a 6 monthly membership option as well as being able to sign up straight away for the year without having to sign up for the reduced month fee.
Some people see the benefit of this platform especially since they get full access within 7 days and are willing to go all in.
