Sick and tired of Clickbank taking my money! Arrgh!
Firstly, I have to really commend those who are receiving checks from Clickbank. You must be elated to get your first check!
Secondly, sorry for this long post but I feel the topic is important for all affiliates.
Unfortunately I am one of those pople who haven't met the minimum requirements for getting paid a check from Clickbank. This includes not meeting the five different credit card payments. I know this is part of their TOS but it seems unfair. I've made lots of sales but unfortunately lots of period of inactivity and believe me I've had heaps of MY money go into Clickbank's coffers. The situation is ridiculous.
Put it this way. An affiliate could potentially be "earning" (that's a loose term) tens of thousands of dollars through Clickbank. Heck, you could get a million bucks in sales! Just because you haven't received sales from five different credit cards, given enough time, be assured that Clickbank will take all of your money. Every cent. Every penny. Everything!
I can't see how to get around this because most people prefer Paypal nowadays even to use their credit card. It's about time Clickbank revised this unfair system of theirs.
How come places like Fiverr have no problem paying out and don't take money in the same way. Is this just a Clickbank thing? Do all affilliate networks do this? I believe they don't!
In any event it's simply unfair to be taking MY hard earned money. Why do greedy companies want to take EVERYTHING?? How do they get away with this?? They get money from the sale. They must be getting bank interest while they hold the money. Then the get the rest of the cash from the sale! Huh?!
I may understand a little more if Clickbank "withhold" monies until the so-called requirements are met and then pay the money back to us. Which in all fairness they should do. It's our money, not theirs. But they keep it! Even then they'd get heaps of bank interest. But to take it, presumably to add to their corporate profit is just a rip off. These guys NEVER give my money back!
I know some of you might say, well, just get more sales, do more backlinking... but that's not the point. It's not that easy as most of us know. Folks, the odds are well and truly stacked against affiliates. Others will say to stop using Clickbank but why should I? I just want to be treated with some fairness and to get what's rightfully mine?
At the end of the day my hard earned money is MINE. What Clickbank do is just not fair.
Okay thats my whinge for the day! I would usually say "stay positive" at this point but I will refrain!
