Give Complete Info on How Clickbank's Affiliate Program Works
Since you recommend Clickbank to new affiliates, you should let them know that Clickbank has a policy wherein affiliates are fined if they do not get 5 sales from 5 different customers through the 5 modes of payment supported by Clickbank.It is very discouraging to see what little commission you have be eaten by Clickbank's fines.
I believe that new affiliate marketers need to know up front what to expect so that they do not get frustrated and quit. That these things do happen and affiliate marketing is not easy. It take time and money.
This is currently under review. We don’t have specific plans to implement it at this stage but we will keep a close eye on it.
What? Is this true? Never heard that before.... yikes, that sucks.
Thanks for your suggestion. Yes, dormant accounts in Clickbank are subject to a charge of $1 per pay period after 90 days of no earnings, $5 after 180 days, and $50 after 365 days of no earnings.
