Question about Clickbank CDR

by SommerS 5 replies
Hi Warriors!

Just curious if somebody encountered something same, I'm promoting a Clickbank product and eventually get over my payment threshold, but, here the problem arrives, regarding Customer Distribution Requirement (CDR)
ClickBank will withhold payment of any account balance until the following criteria is met:
  • Sales made with 5 or more different credit card numbers; and,
  • Sales made with two different payment methods (either Visa, MasterCard, PayPal or European Direct Debit(ELV)). Note: PayPal purchases do not count toward the minimum 5 different credit card numbers.
Nice huh! All my customers did pay trough PayPal. All of them ! So if they continue paying trough PayPal I'm not going to see my money? Is that so?

    the money will be held in your account until you meet the requirement and then all your back payments will be release but a small amount they hold to cover refunds.

    That amount will also be released over time if there are no refunds.

    The bad news - yes.

    The good news - you will get credit card payments.
    (The split for my accounts is about 50/50 )

      Thanks guys for response, not very fair from Clickbank, in these days more and more people using PayPal for small online payments, less hassle than always typing in credit card details, at the moment I'm not making many sales trough Clickbank, so waiting when somebody will make a purchase with credit card (and I'll need 5 these purchases) can take quite long time.

      Just a thing to consider before you starting with Clickbank guys and gals.

        Yes I am currently working on my last credit card transaction to lift the CDR hold on my account. It wasn't too difficult to achieve but it is definitely a hassle. In fact I have been helping 2 or 3 members with the similar situation so we can all enjoy our profits sooner.

          Good thinking - as long as you don't then refund products - I'm sure you know that would help nobody and can get you into terrible trouble!

          All you need to do is get a couple of friends/relatives to buy some $3 product through your affiliate link. You only ever have to do this once. (But don't refund them!).

          You can even buy one yourself with a credit-card (as long as you don't then refund it!). You can even buy two yourself with two different credit-cards, actually (the rules relates to five credit-cards, not to five customers) ... but you didn't hear that from me.
