Using ClickBank as a Credit Card Processor--Good Idea?

I've been an affiliate marketer using Clickbank for some time, and now I have my own product to sell. I'm not so concerned about getting affiliates to sell the product, as it's quite cheap--only 20 USD.

Since I already have a clickbank account set up with my bank, though, I'm thinking about becoming a vendor, which would allow Clickbank to process payments for me.

The problem is that they charge 7.5% + $1 on each sale. That means I'd be paying them 12.5% for each transaction! That seems way to high!

Can someone give me some advice/suggestions on setting up a payment processor that isn't Clickbank?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Congratulations on your new product! :)

You can look into using 2Checkout or Google Checkout. I haven't used these personally but I heard 2Checkout is a good alternative to Clickbank.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi Cecille,
Thanks so much for the recommendations! The Google Checkout looks great to me--at about a third of the cost as using Clickbank! ...and you can never really go wrong using Google products!

Also, you might consider raising the price of your product. If your product solves a big problem, then people will gladly pay a higher price.

There are certain price tiers that are good rules of thumb.

For example, if someone would pay $20 for an ebook, they would probably also pay up to $47 for that same product.

If someone would pay $60 for a product, they will probably also pay up to $97 for that same product.

Split test your pricing. Charge what you are worth. And remember, never compete on price unless you want to race your competition to the bottom.

I charge 3 times what others in my market charge and that doesn't stop us from making money. Our customers are higher quality, and we don't have to manage as many of them as we would if our product was priced at the standard rate.
