Can you accept Pay Pal through ClickBank's checkout?

If so, do you get paid right away or do you have to still wait ClickBank's holding period for Pay Pal orders?

Thanks guys

  • Clickbank accepts payments via PayPal from your customers, and then pays you after.
    (meaning, if the customer clicks on "pay via PayPal, you still have to wait until Clickbank pays out.)

    Technically, you can't accept anything through ClickBank's checkout, because customers buy not from you but from ClickBank. I'm mentioning this not just to be pedantic but because it explains many things about ClickBank's whole system: ClickBank is actually a retailer, not just a payment-processor.

    The contract of sale is formed between the customer and ClickBank (i.e. not between the customer and the vendor) and the payment is therefore also transacted between those two parties.

    Customers can pay ClickBank by PayPal (and many do), but ClickBank won't pay vendors/affiliates by PayPal. Regarding the vendors'/affiliates' payments from ClickBank, it makes no difference how the customer has paid ClickBank: you get paid on the next "payment due" date.

      Clickbank just charges their 7.5% plus $1 fee regardless of how the customer pays. Your PayPal account has actually nothing to do with this scenario. Example: Even if you did not have an active Paypal Account, you could still use Clickbank to process your orders, and your customers could still pay Clickbank via PayPal, as it does not go through "your" PayPal account. Makes sense?

    Yes, it makes sense. I was just wondering wondering if ClickBank charges your for the Pay Pal fees they pay.

    But sounds like they don't.

    Thanks!

    No, they dont charge paypal fee while paying you back. But, you can simple add your bank account to clickbank, they can do a direct wire transfer instead of using paypal.

      Well ... yes and no.

      "Wire transfer" and "direct deposit" are actually two different payment methods.

      Wire transfer (which costs $35 per transfer, plus your own bank's charges) is available only in countries to which ClickBank doesn't offer direct deposit payments. All explained here: https://accounts.clickbank.com/accounting.html

      Their former "two checks rule" has been abandoned. There's now no need for anyone to be paid by check, by ClickBank, unless that's what they prefer, of course.

    Are there any fees on the checks that Clickbank sends you?

      They deduct $2.50 per payment they make to my bank account, and I believe they charged the same amount when they sent me checks... So if you want to minimize those payments, just set your payment threshold higher. $2.50 out of a $200 check is less than if it comes out of a $50 check...

    I still get the checks and deposit by using an app on my phone to deposit it. Too lazy to change it up.

    When you sell your own product or are an affiliate, when the customer decides that they are ready to buy, they have the option to purchase through their own PayPal account.

    Clickbank will not pay its affiliates or vendors commissions through PayPal and only through a check or wire depending on how much you earned.

    I'm not concerned about payments to me.

    I was just wondering if ClickBank charges you for the Pay Pal fee they pay WHEN accepting a payment via Pay Pal on your be-half...

    Sounds like they do not.

    Thanks everyone

      No, they don't.

      Unlike a credit-card/payment-processor, they're not accepting it on your behalf. They're accepting it on their behalf. And this is the point, here.

      ClickBank is a retailer, not just a payment processor. The amount for which they buy the product from the vendor before retailing it to their customer isn't influenced by how their customer is paying them for the product. All these questions/issues become clearer with the realization that ClickBank isn't just doing payment-processing, here: it's actually buying the product from one party and selling it to another.
