Payment Management Just Got Easier

Renee Griffith May 20th, 2019


Can you believe it’s already Q2 of 2019? The Proper Media Team has been very busy working on some exciting new developments, some of which we’ll share today, some of which we’ll be rolling out later this quarter.

 
DASHBOARD INSIGHTS
The Payments Tab has a new look! 

You now have access to view and maintain payment history* in the Proper Dashboard.  Automated email communications are in place for a variety of payment milestones – when a payment has been made, when a payment has been rejected (including how to fix the problem), when tax forms are going to expire, and more.

*Our partnership with Tipalti provides dashboard access to payments as of January 2019. 
 
Payment History keeps track of payment dates, amounts, method and status.
 
 
Invoice History shows total monthly revenue, any affiliate revenue earned, any deductions/clawbacks, resulting in the monthly final revenue amount.
 
 
Payment Details gives publishers the ability to maintain payment account information and self-serve updates when needed.
