Clickbank - So confused about my "Paychecks" Balance

by Chrispy9 9 replies
Hello Warriors. I am a noob!

Almost a year ago I tried out Clickbank, had no success being a total noob, and I thought I would take another look at it.

While going through my account I noticed the Paychecks page had a bunch of "Payment Net Balance" $ numbers. Are these really sales?

Here's a picture of my page, I am very confused. If these are really sales, and the money is mine, how do I go about removing this CDR

    Okay, I'm starting to think that was 1 sale I had. I got $33.45 in commission, why did it slowly taper down to 0$ ?

    It's a dormant account, one sale in 2014.

    Clickbank deducts money from dormant accounts, look at the debits column, it totals $33.45.

    It's been a few years since I had to deal with the CDR but you need sales from multiple payment types (ex: Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, etc...) in order to start receiving payments from CB.

    You also need to keep making sales to avoid the dormant account deductions, or at least make enough sales to cash out.

    1) It was a sale
    2) CDR will remain until you make at least 3 unique sales
    3) It tapered down because clickbank started charging you due to inactivity - https://accounts.clickbank.com/accounting.html#A24

      Correction, unique payment types, example, 3 unique traffic/sales using Paypal will not remove the CDR.

        Actually that's wrong too. I just checked their site.

        Looks like it changed since we got our accounts set up years ago. I meant unique payment types too...brain burp

    The money is gone. The account was dormant for too long.

    Contact Clickbank support for more info.

    Cheers,

      Basically, Clickbank are only interested in powersellers, so if you're not doing well in the world of affiliation then, they're not interested (just like their customer service).

        Thanks for all the replies guys. Understood now!

        Maybe I'll give clickbank another shot. May have gotten lucky with that first sale but I wasn't trying that hard!

        I disagree with that, I've dealt with CB customer service, they've responded quickly each time.

        There's money in CB but it's like any other business, you have to do the work to figure out the decent products & weed out the junk.

        Personally I only sell similar products that are sold in offline stores, that gives me something to compare my own strategy when creating sales pages. If the BIG box offline stores are selling something year after year, they're banking, otherwise they would dump the product/niche.

        You've already proven there's money in CB, you just need to focus on generating more targeted traffic.

        It's all a numbers game as long as it's targeted traffic...
