N: What does a business development manager do, do they help affiliate? or our potential clients?

Answer: Business development managers are constantly looking for the best advertisers and new affiliates to join our network.

R: What’s the preferred development environment to work with Travelpayouts? WordPress vs HTML.

Answer: It is a personal preference. WordPress comes with Travelpayouts plugin and allows to do a lot of things out of the box. But some developers would rather develop a site from scratch, starting with plain HTML layout and handpicked tools. At the end of the day, both WordPress and custom engines generate HTML for a visitor’s browser.

G: Any plans on adding Viator?

Answer: Viator is already in Travelpayouts: https://www.travelpayouts.com/programs/47/about

N: Can the teams of developers of the company partner with your developers in order to properly implement the APIs on the website in case of a problem? Thanks

m: Why don’t you people have a way of making a withdrawal through bitcoin?

Answer: We don’t do transactions with Bitcoin since no travel agency or airline accepts it.

R: do you have a WordPress theme that we can download?

Answer: In this article (https://blog.travelpayouts.com/en/best-travel-wordpress-themes/) we give recommendations on choosing a travel theme for a WordPress site. 

M: In this list of programs, it mentions geotargeting. What does that mean?

Answer: it’s the list of countries for which you can promote this advertiser’s tools.

M: Follow-up to geotargeting question… So it is the location of the website owner rather than the location of the end-user?

Answer: It refers to the location of the end-user.

M: Hi, Can a new website with few travel articles apply for the programs that require a Pre-approval? Thanks!

Answer: it all depends on your niche and resource, but we would suggest publishing 5-10 well-written articles of 2,000 words+ before applying to an offer that requires pre-approval. 

N: What CMS do other affiliates use if not WordPress?

Answer: Mostly, the affiliates stick to WordPress, because we have a WordPress plugin. Some of them use their own custom engines written in PHP or Node.js.
