Is Clickbank taking actions on serial refunders?

by 60 comments
I am asking because I see no CB policy against serial refunders. Is there any case that a serial refunder has been blocked or his paypal gets blacklisted?

    In a word: Yes

    Serial refunding is a form of fraud. ClickBank insiders told me at clickbanmastersusa that they aggressively go after fraud.

    I don't think they can do anything to the paypal account, but paypal has it's own dangers if you run any meaningful volume.

    You can notify them of anyone doing this and they will happily investigate.

    To identify a serial refunder I think is easy for them, especially if that person uses the same paypal or credit card in most of his transactions. I spoken to someone here before saying he requested around 5 to 10 refund almost every day... shocking revelation! I stopped discussing with him then....

    I'm sure they do, but if you use DL Guard, you can always take action yourself.

    I was so ****ed a couple of days ago, someone made me $150 commission on Seolinkvine. Refunded two days later.

    Of course, there is no way on earth to evaluate a blog network in 2 days and come to a conclusion its not worth the money.

    lol well I'll be damned, I logged into my old installation of DLG and there it is!

    I wonder how it works tho? Technically payment would still go through paypal -- they just get denied access to the download? (and then you'd just have to refund their payment?)

    How can serial refunding me a form of fraud?

    Has it occured to you that maybe the sales pages are so full of hype and ouright lies that when the buyer gets his or her product they're extremely disappointed and request a refund?

    And then they buy the next product hoping it will be better..and so on?

    The seller is the one commiting fraud, not the one refunding.

    Their policy regarding serial refunders is actually very clearly outlined on their site:

    6. What about customers who try to abuse the return policy?
    Customers requesting serial or repeated returns will be blocked from making further purchases

    From memory, I have purchased 3 products(Maybe 4) over the last couple of years and refunded every single one of them. Does that make me a serial refunder?

    I know there are many people who just love to refund the product, and after getting a fun they just share it at various sharing sites (I just don't want to name those)

    I have bought dozens of CB products, but request refund for few.

    Clickbank is known only to people like us and I think that comprises as little as 05% of total Internet Users - or even lower.

    Here's an idea, maybe someone needs to provide an alternative to Clickbank and review every product that is submitted before putting it out for sale. Make the site trusted for having good products.

    Yes, i agree that serial refunder must be taken action.

    It's not fair to them who sell their product honestly in clickbank.

    Anyways, you missed the point. It was about any webmaster (from WF or DP) putting up their best site vs. Clickbank. A blind observer would choose Clickbank
    Your post had expressed two different situations to me, so I now understand sort of what you mean.

    However, again you find yourself wrong. You have just alienated any other marketer, other then clickbank on trustworthiness..... At least, thats what your expressing from my point of view.
