JVZOO affiliates and Paypal account risks due to refund

14 replies
Hello there,

I am going to register to JVZOO as an affiliate...
I noticed that they pay to affiliates through paypal...
My question is, if my Paypal account will be in risk due to the "refunds" and especially high amounts of refunds? Or it is something realted to just vendors?

Thanks

    Your PayPal account will not be in any risk because you are just returning the commissions you made from the product.

    That is something that is related to the vendors not affiliates really. You should
    have nothing to worry about being an affiliate of a vendor.

    Wish the best!

      For me I had delayed payment set as an affiliate. For one payment it got delayed more than 90 days and to get my commission i had to send several emails with no response and had to find the vendor all over the web to find his contact email. But he paid after my emails.

    I'm pretty sure even as an affiliate if you have to give back a commission it is considered a refund. I don't know for sure but when it happens it does say "refund."

    If you are going to be a vendor you shouldn't have a problem with refunds as long as you are selling a quality product that does what it says it's going to do.

    Paypal is one of the leading money transferring site around the world. It is number 1 position. After the paypal, you can use other site such as Skrill, payza, alartpay, western union & some other site like these. So you can use the paypal without any hesitation. JVZOO is also a good affiliate site. You can use both of these site without any problem. Thanks a lot.

    These days, Paypal are expecting both vendors and affiliates to keep at least $100 in their paypal accounts.

    The problems arise when a refund is processed for an affiliate sale and the affiliate does not have enough in the account to cover it and may not have funds available on a linked card.

    It is always a good idea to keep a working balance in Paypal for this reason.

      I've seen that listed on the JVZoo website but cannot find that in writing anywhere in the PayPal TOS.

      I understand the logic behind it. You need to have enough money in your PP account at all times in case vendors need to pull back affiliate commissions due to refunds.

      However, I think that as long as you manage your PP properly and never let it go into the negative then I'm not sure why PP would all of a sudden block your sales if your account dipped below $100, especially if you didn't make that many commissions or sales with your JVZoo account.

      It doesn't seem to make much sense that PP would stop all vendors and affiliates from making sales like that because then it hurts their bottom line as well. I'm not saying this is not the case, but if it is, I'd like to see where in the PP TOS this is stated.

      It could just be something JVZoo put on their website to ensure that people always leave $100 in their account to lower the likelihood that vendors may not be able to pull back their commissions if a refund arises. I remember the day it first appeared on there. I didn't receive anything from PP stating that was now a policy, and normally you would receive a notice from them whenever they have a change in policies or their user agreement.

      Personally, I think it makes total sense and I agree with the JVZoo. I always try to keep an even higher minimum balance in my account at all times, but that's because I make a lot of sales as an affiliate and need to have enough to cover any refunds that I might have to pay back. That being said, I don't think it came from PP. I think it's something JVZoo is just warning you that might happen if you don't have enough money in your PP account to cover a refund. I didn't see anything like that posted on Warrior Plus or Payspree, and they both offer instant commissions just like JVzoo.

      The bottom line is that it's up to the account holder to manage their account properly and to ensure that they never go into the negative. As long as a person has a good track record and has managed their PP account properly and responsibly and never let it go into the negative, I don't know if I see PP blocking sales on an account for the sole reason that the account holder has less than $100 in their account and also holds a JVZoo account.

      Is there anyone here who this has happened to? If so, how did you resolve it?

    Refunds are refunds. If your refund rate is too high you will likely be flagged for higher risk.

    Easy rules to follow.

    1. Don't promote sketchy offers.
    2. Don't over promise as the affiliate
    3. Don't promote sketchy offers.

    With Paypal, as long as you make any refund requests in a timely manner you will be ok

    It is when disputes are open or chargebacks are filed, then you could have a problem with paypal

      You sure about this? If a client purchases your product through JVZoo, and then asks for a refund, just for the intention of getting a product for free, how is the vendor protected?

      Because, if the vendor correctly refuses to refund, the buyer can simply open a Paypal dispute.

        There is no "protection".

        If you refund through your JVZoo account rather than from Paypal, all of the commissions & fees that you have paid out (to both affiliates and JVZoo) are reversed. IF the affiliate has enough funds to cover the reversal (my point earlier).

        there is a personal and peer buyers blacklist feature in JVZ and W+ where you can prevent the buyer from purchasing your products in the future if they screw you over.
