I'm setting up a membership site that I'm running with a partner (another warrior) and for this partnership I'll be taking the payments from customers due to him having certain restrictions in his country.
Up until now, I've always used Paypal for recurring transactions and I'm very happy with them but since I'm going to be running this membership site as a joint partnership, I want to be able to:
1) Allow my partner to be able to see the money in the account, as I use my main paypal account for other businesses, I won't want him seeing what's there. So with Clickbank, can't I setup a new Clickbank account just for this membership site that we're going to run together?
2) I want to have an affiliate program and Clickbank seems the better solution since affiliates are already registered on there and also they trust that Clickbank will always pay their commissions and pay them on time whereas if they don't know me personally, they might not trust me as much as they would trust Clickbank to pay them. Also it means that I don't have to manually deal with affiliate payments each month which is a plus!
Now, I know Clickbank have a few restrictions like minimum trial fee is $4.95 and there are limits on the recurring fee too but they don't seem to be restrictive for me since it will be a $37/month membership with a $9 trial. I also know about their 60 day guarantee but again, this isn't a big deal since I'm providing new content each month with my site which should help to retain members.
What I would like to know is, if people have used them and how is it working out?
When a customer refunds, does clickbank automatically send a HTML post to your membership script so that your member's account can be disabled automatically?
Do clickbank pay me every 2 weeks via bank transfer to my UK business bank account and if so, are there any charges?
Hmmm, I think that's all the questions I have for now!
Any advice will be much appreciated.
