    There is no issue with the clickbank management at all. And almost on every Affiliate network, accounts get closed but it does not mean it is their fault, Mostly people get their account terminated when they break their TOS or do something against their Policies.

    now with this new risk management my account could be terminated even without breaking their rules because my account could be considered by them as "high risk" and they will terminate my account because of this and I'm afraid to continue to promote their products even though my account is considered "good quality" now.

      No. (Well, it's up to you, really, of course ...).

      I think you're probably asking as an affiliate, rather than as a vendor?

      It's recommended to change whatever you're doing that's putting your account in a higher risk-category than you're comfortable with. Different affiliates have different risk-categories because they have widely differing pre-selling methods/skills and hugely different refund-rates for the same products, depending primarily on how they pre-sell.

      There are two different approaches possible, here, aren't there? One is to criticize ClickBank, be dismissive of what they're trying to do, call their risk-assessment methods "crappy" and think about leaving. The other is to try to learn something, change, adapt, improve, become more successful and increase your income. Just my perspective, as one of the people who broadly welcome ClickBank's risk-assessment methods in principle, albeit that they're new-ish, not-yet-perfected and somewhat experimental.

      clickbank still good for me, my account get below average but it's still running now.. i guess it's because i sell some product that have high refund, i change the product and it's a little decrease.. My suggestion maybe you could create another account at clickbank as back up or check the product that you are promoting good or not

    If still good quality, keep it up. Try to get rebill commission, that will keep your account safe.

    Clickbank is fine. Customer support is still excellent, and the products are top notch (some of them anyway). Just promote the information products on Clickbank as if they were yours. Some email marketing and you'll be good to go.

      I agree with the above posters. Clickbank is still viable. Like any affiliate site, they have some really good products and some really bad ones. It can be quite a chore to sift through them to find that diamond in the rough, but they are there. I used to use it a lot more than I do now only because I'm mainly selling much higher ticket items and outside the IM space.

    Its not possible to differentiate clickbank with internet Marketing. Clickbank is a home for many (almost all) newbie marketers and they have a huge army of affiliates. Even if few back off due to policy changes, there will be many other coming each day.

    I think its better to contact clickbank support in advance if you feel your account might be terminated.

    If your goal is to create income alone, then CB type services are fine but if your goal is to build a business, you need to control the business.

    Using a platform like CB or Amazon will always mean that your business is at the whim and fancy of their policies and choices so you are never fully in control.

    CB, PayPal and many more are following a similar path. It's just a matter of minimizing risks and add some diversification to your strategies (in case you have a problem with one of your payment processors) but don't think that you should close your account.

    The problem with this risk management system is that nobody really understands it, and in turn nobody really knows how great the risk may be. I wouldn't be scared away by it, though. Perhaps you don't want to spend a lot of time/money promoting something new on an account that may be in danger (you could always just put that stuff on a new account if you want), but if you have an already successful promotion ongoing, I wouldn't drop it out of fear of what might potentially happen.

      There's nothing wrong with ClinkBank and it's currently one of the most effective ways to make money through the internet. There are top notch products and customer support that you probably would not find somewhere else. Have a sense of ownership--promote the ClickBank products like they're really yours. Add email marketing to it and I'm sure that you'll do just fine.

    Why quit if they don't kick you out, assuming you are still making money?

    If you are concerned, it makes sense to focus your efforts on other programs. But it makes no sense to quit for the sake of it.

    FWIW:

    I have 3 ClickBank accounts, all more than 10 years old.

    Until recently all were rated Very Good / Excellent

    One suddenly became Unacceptable after they changed their algorithm to take into historical account activity years ago. This account hasn't had a chargeback for more than a year, maybe even two. It's being penalized for things that took place years ago, perhaps even in the early days of ClickBank when their own systems were basic.

    The other 2 account still have good/excellent ratings, and to be honest it is entirely arbitrary which sales I put through which account, years ago, so there is no real difference between the accounts.

    After exchanging emails with a senior ClickBank person, I have been reassured that they are not taking any decisions purely on the basis of these ratings. If I can find the email (was a couple of months ago), I will post the exact text.
