    As developer of the MassPay Addon for RAP, this post obviously caught my eye. 😉 I know from talking with other marketers this is not common knowledge, so it’s nice to see it getting attention.

    Also thanks erin, didn’t know there where an Addon for RAP, gonna check it out.

    / Peter

    P.S Lance you need new glasses though, the link is very visible on your video (07:15) at the top under the link “send money”. 😉 Couldn’t resist.

  • Lance Tamashiro Reply

    @Peter – You got me.. although I didn’t actually want to send the payments. 🙂
    But you are correct, click the button you see at 7:15 to ACTUALLY complete the payments. 🙂

    I might have to make a new video just for you with my new glasses. 🙂

    Hi Lance

    Good tip. I do think Joel Comm uses this for his affiliate payments actually. He has a fixed date when he completes all payments.

    As always your blog is well worth reading.

    PS: Btw, what was your conversion rate with ViralURL? I find their mails annoying, and was surprised when I saw you had used their services.
    You’re way too good to use their spam services. 🙂

    Thanks for the comments! I really do appreciate it!
    I go back and forth with Viral URL. Of all of the safelists, it gets me the best results. I believe it is because they are constantly getting new members into their “gold” program. Most services don’t grow like Viral URL does.

    With that being said, it is an old habit that I hang on to for some reason.

    My thought process is basically this, I make a couple of big sales from it every week or so. It more than pays for itself many times over and it takes me about 90 seconds a week to maintain… so…

    With that being said… I should probably think about my addiction with it. 🙂

    Good info… and good work finding that ‘hidden feature.’

    Since Paypal is always looking to support their customers, I am SURE it wasn’t hidden intentionally.?.?.? Yeah, right.

    A follow-up question… You mentioned a maximum fee of $1 for a mass payment ‘transaction’. I poked around over there and couldn’t find that stated anywhere. I found the max payment per transaction within the mass payment of $0.25, but didn’t find a max payment for the overall mass payment transaction. But $0.25 max per individual payment is still a savings.

    Also, another way to get to mass pay page is from the Merchant Services tab, as a link in the list under Manage Payments. You still end up on the same page with the link to make a mass payment though.

    Thanks again for the good information.

    @Jack… The only information I could find was on the Mass Pay overview tab (that I show in the video). It said 2% or max of $1 per transaction. It wouldn’t surprise me if they had another price listed somewhere else.

    I was looking through an old mass pay I did a couple of months ago, and I appeared to be $1, although that could have changed. Either way, $1 is sure better than $150 they just took on the last affiliate payment I got! 🙂

    I don’t think there is max overall, again, the whole thing is pretty confusing.. but.. it does work and it is faster and cheaper!

    haha I wish you would’ve posted this earlier — I was just showing my assistant how to do mass pay — I could’ve just sent her to your blog post!

    I did this when I bought Frank Kern’s stuff via paypal, and his office thought I was a legend because i was the only one who did that, saving them a ton of fees (it was 2k transaction!)

    Hey Lance

    I noticed that you filled in the comments section in the video. But isn’t that filled in automatically with the comments you put in the text file?

    Hi Lance,

    Great work… again…

    I found it amusing to see the comments on this particular post – a few people invading your blog!

    I guess it is as good a place as any to start getting experience.


    May 20, 2009 at 3:22 pm
  • Lance Tamashiro Reply

    @JFlad – that’s because you ARE a legend! I assume you recorded your training session as well?

    @David – To be honest, I THINK that it will pull into those fields from the spreadsheet. I normally leave them blank, but sometimes live video is live video.. 🙂

    @Trevor – Yes, I love seeing people putting the Blog Invasion System to work. What better place than here? 🙂

    Great tip. Using mass pay to issue "Rebates" will allow me to sell MAP
    (Minimum Advertised Price)
    items in my store,
    Gary’s Odd Stuff
    , without violating MAP Policy, and give my customer a
    discounted final price.

    Hey Lance, Realize this is a little behind the times given the date on your blog post, but I think the info is relevant enough that it deserves a mention.

    I have a writer that I work with who is my “PayPal Insider”. He explained the finer points of MassPay to me several months ago. And while I haven’t confirmed this, he told me that funds sent via MassPay are NOT covered under any type of Buyer or Seller Protection Program.

    Probably not a big deal in most instances, but if you are going to send payment for a big ticket purchase, I’d definitely consider the risk.

    Love your site. Tons of great info!

  • Lance Tamashiro Reply


    Thanks for dropping by! You are correct, you are not covered by “Buyer/Seller” protection with this form of payment.

    The main way that I use it is for transferring money to affiliates and business partners. People that I am not needing “protection” from.

    Affiliates love when they actually get paid the amount they earned (and not the amount they earned minus paypal fees). This keeps them happy and promoting!

    Thanks for the compliments on the site and have a great day!
