There was no prizemoney for the side's one point win over Australia in Liverpool on Monday but Sky Television, along with ANZ, MYOB and Puma, will make a financial contribution to ensure the side is remunerated.
Each player will get $25,000.
Netball New Zealand chief executive Jennie Wyllie said it was a great feeling to be able to reward players for their extraordinary efforts in lifting the trophy for the first time in 16 years.
"We are so thankful to our wonderful partners for both their ongoing support of the Silver Ferns and the sport, and coming together to provide this financial boost in recognition of our world champions," Wyllie said.
Sky chief executive Martin Stewart said the passion and commitment of the team was evident to everyone and they're pleased to be able to contribute to a bonus payment for the team.
"The Silver Ferns had a superb World Cup campaign and we were thrilled to be there every step of the way.
"We congratulate the Silver Ferns on their superb win, and look forward to showcasing them again on Sky during the Constellation Cup in October."
