Clickbank Problem! Are You Losing Your Clickbank Pay?

If you are starting out with the Clickbank system, I found out about a Clickbank problem – a very discouraging rule that can affect your clickbank payout.

A Clickbank check is mailed out twice per month, but before you can get your first check, there are certain conditions that must be met.

First, you have to meet the minimum payout threshold.  You get to set your own payout level, but remember when choosing, that they will charge you $2.50 per payout and the only way to economize on this is to set a higher payout level.  Then you have to wait longer, obviously, for your clickbank check. This is how the clickbank pay system works.

However you choose to deal with that clickbank problem, there is more.  Not only do you have to meet your minimum payout level, but on top of that — the amount has to come from 5 different sales and 5 different customers!  So the minimum level doesn’t matter until this requirement is met.  And what’s worse, if a customer pays with paypal, that sale won’t even count towards the 5!  It has to be 5 credit card sales to count.

So you can see that if you make a couple sales, you are not going to get a clickbank check until you’ve sold more and achieved at least the five different customers sales.  And then there is still more!

If your account should go 90 days without any activity, they say the account is “dormant” and begin to charge you a dollar every single payday as a fee.  Then $5 each payday if it’s 180 days. 

It doesn’t matter what your balance may be, you could be watching it decline, little by little, until it is completely gone!

This is what has happened to a huge percentage of Clickbank affiliates, and Clickbank keeps the money.  It is the biggest reason that affiliates fail and quit. Did you know that currently, over 90% of all Clickbank accounts are considered “dormant”?

It isn’t hard to be caught in this trap and there is no way out.  But I have found a solution to avoid this situation, thanks to Mr. Harvey Segal, THE Clickbank Guru.  He has an Ebook that takes this Clickbank problem on and his solution is truly ingenious!  You have to see this.

Not only can you avoid this trap altogether, but you can actually make money virally off this situation as an added bonus.  It is so very easy and he explains it completely in this short ebook that I can let you have for free.

It’s called “Clickbank for Newbies” and with this plan, you can set yourself up so this

clickbank problem

never happens to you.  Or if you find yourself already in this situation – this is the way out!

    Hi Lynette

    You’ve got another terrific article here. I hadn’t heard of the ‘Clickbank Guru’, and there’s obviously a lot more to Clickbank marketing than I thought.


  2. Michael Pedzotti Says:

    I had not heard about the strict requirements before now. I started out using CB a few years ago, got all my earnings gobbled up with fees and decided at that time that CB was not out to help or encourage the start-up affiliate.

    I ended up using Paypal (and I cannot find anywhere we they charge fees for dormant accounts) and another e-delivery mechanism that avoids the need to go anywhere near CB.

    Now that I have read your ebook download I can see that there are ways to get around the CB terms and conditions.


  3. Gail Fay Says:

    I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to this ebook. I too have been steering clear of Clickbank for the reasons in your article. I have made odd sales here and there but NEVER have I been paid. Clickbank swallowed the lot – several hundred dollars, over time.

    I’ve also joined the Clickbank Success forum mentioned in the book. This is exciting.

    As a new member of the MWA community, I’ve started afresh with my business and expect gain new insight. My new blog is built and I am focusing on following in Alex’s footsteps, helping others along the way.

    All the best to you!

    By the way, how do you manage to handle posting in this blog? Do you have staff to do this for you or you just do it all alone? It would be kind of you if you could tell me. Thanks very much.

  9. Lynette Odmark Says:

    No, no staff. I do all of my own writing.

    Hi Lynette

    I have never heard anything like that. I am not sure if the same rules still apply. I have joined Clickbank but as yet have not sold anything but am too busy at the moment.

    A little about me – My name is Sue McDonald and I am a student of Mark Terrell and I am actually going through the course a second time – by invitation. I love it and know if I do all he says, I will be successful. I am Australian but the US is my second home as I have family there and visit quite often. This is why I started Internet Marketing so I can travel whenever I want and have the money to do what I want.

    Well I hope you are doing well and you become very successful. I would love you to come visit my blog and leave a comment.

    Kind regards


  11. Lynette Odmark Says:

    Hey Sue!
    You are exactly who this is written for! It IS still the rules – I am personally experiencing it right now and it is painful. They owe me over $100. You didn’t know about this — now you do!

    But you can protect yourself so it does NOT happen to you with a little preparation. Now is the time – before they owe you. Get this ebook immediately and follow the instructions as I am doing, to solve this little “glitch”.

    No kidding, you need to take action on this! To get my money, I only need two more – you’ll know what I mean when you read this free ebook.

    All the best,

    Hi Lynette

    I have just come for a visit to your site. How are you going?

    Yes it’s Mark and I am following my students as they post on other peoples blogs. They don’t know that I am always checking to see they are getting results. I am passionate about helping them achieve and then they are able to make some money online exactly the same as I am doing. It is not really difficult as long as they are willing to put in the effort.

    Always pleasing if I can see some of my students have posted comments. Keep up the good work.

    Every single article I have looked over is very well written and to the point. I would furthermore just like to say, not only are the particular content pieces written good, but your style of the site is excellent. It was simple to get around from piece of writing to post and select what I had been wanting for with easiness.

  20. Vertical Jump Says:

    thanks !! quite helpful post!

  21. Winona Garreh Says:

    Finally, I found the information I was searching for. I have been doing research on this subject, and for three days I keep entering websites that are supposed to have what I’m searching for, only to be disappointed with the lack of what I had to have. I wish I would have found your web-site quicker! I had about 40% of what I was looking for and your site has that, and the rest of what I had to have to finish my research. Thank you and keep up the good work!

  22. Maria Trueman Says:

    Fantastic! What an outstanding thoughtful write-up. Gracias for making me think tight during the entire day :-)

  23. Dan B. Cauthron Says:

    Clickbank has been working only for its self-interest almost since day one of its existence.

    Besides having one of the most costly transaction fees, Clickbank will surely continue to hold back affiliate payments by whatever means they can contrive.

    The reason? … so they can earn daily interest on the bank float – which is made up of YOUR money.

    THAT dear readers is where Clickbank earns big bucks – not from fees on $29 ebook sales.

    If one is skilled in aggressive marketing techniques, and is prepared to mount high volume (and often high cost) campaigns – then an association with Clickbank may prove worthwhile.

    But in my humble opinion, mid-level to small volume marketers should seek alternative affiliate programs, perhaps or

    I’ve been thriving online for more than 10 years without depending on Clickbank for any percentage of my income.

  24. Stock Options Says:

    Well, the article is in reality the freshest on this noteworthy topic. I fit in with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your forthcoming updates.

Solid work and much success in your business endeavors.
