Question   Is the paypal commission payout automatic?

Answer    No, the commission is not distributed automaticly.
However, there is an export to csv report that can be used to create a file that can be imported into PayPal to pay everyone at once.
This report is at the bottom of the "Referral Marketing" page when logged in as the admin.
