Clickbank Balance - Have I earned or Not?

7 replies
Guys after long time I just opened my clickbank account.

I dont know how to check my clickbank account balance. but when I clicked on paychecks I found 14 items found and showing 89.39$. But the status is CDR.
(I have put some affiliate link on my site long back, but never check then)

So my question is have I made that money? And I have set minimum payout 10$ by check but I havent received yet any check.

What I can see is payment status is showing CDR. What does it mean?
(CDR-- Account had not yet met Customer Distribution Requirement)

What do I need to do now?

Please tell me how to get payment now.

    You earned but you have to wait until you reach the minimum payout amount that you set.

      He already stated it's set at $10. It's a CDR restriction.

    Yep. Basically what everyone above said. You should check how many sales you have made. My guess it is below five. But remember, if lots of people pay with the same method (IE Paypal), then you could be waiting for even more sales before the CDR is lifted.

    Remember, after this CDR is cleared, even if you only make one sale, you will be able to cash out every week which is pretty sweet.

    Soon now - your CDR status will turn into a 'nominal charge' against your account (weekly or monthly - forgot the exact details). It will be all slurped up and gone buh-bye unless their requirements are met. They snagged $90-ish from me the same way and there is nothing you can do about it, unless the required sales come through to save your backsides.

      YEP! ... had the same thing happen to me. I thought I was sitting on a nice little balance, things went quiet for a few months and in that time they clawed it all back and left me with nothing :-(

      I should have read the T&C's properly I guess, but WHO really does that? More to the point - HOW do you interpret their gobbledegook??

    This covers all of it:

    https://accounts.clickbank.com/accounting.html

    This is the part you will be interested in:

    "CUSTOMER DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENT (CDR)

    ClickBank will withhold payment of any balance until an account shows a minimum of 5 sales using at least two of the following payment methods:

    American Express
    Carte Bleue
    Diners Club
    Discover
    ELV (European Direct Debit)
    JCB
    Maestro
    MasterCard
    PayPal
    Visa
    This requirement is in place to help prevent Affiliates from abusing the ClickBank Affiliate program by using their accounts for the sole purpose of fraudulently collecting rebates and/or discounts on their own purchases.

    Once you have met the Customer Distribution Requirement, your account will begin issuing payments normally, in accordance with our Accounting Policy, beginning on the next payment issuing date."

    It tells you all about it and WHY they have put it in place.

    All the best,

    Chris Jones
