Payouts are the methods in which rewards are distributed to your members and/or referrals.

Once you have created Reward Rules that are tied to a specific payout type, you can manage your reward funds, adjust payout schedules and set annual payment limits from the main Payouts Page inside of Referral Rock.


When a Reward Rule is created it is connected to a Payout type. You can access your Payouts for initial setup and management by selecting Settings > Payouts or by clicking here.

Here you will be able to connect any external accounts, manage balances, edit payout emails when applicable, review and issue rewards, and more.

Payment History

Displays a log of all payments.

Schedule Payments

Run an automation on the schedule you choose. This will issue all eligible pending rewards for this payout type. All scheduled payouts are issued at approximately 07:00AM (12:00 UTC).

Each Payout may be individually set on a schedule by choosing a schedule option from the dropdown next to each Payout type. The options allow you to automatically issue all eligible pending rewards daily, weekly, or monthly.

The Schedule Payments feature is available on our Growth and Established Business plans.

Issue by Recipient

Displays all payments batched by Type or Recipient, allowing for easy batch payments instead of needing to individually issue each Payout.

Annual Payment Limits
