Did clickbank scam me?

    Hello everybody!

    I would like to know if you got paid for sales you generated before reaching the Clickbank CDR. As my clickbank account screen shot shows, I've finally met the CDR after 15 sales; my threshold is $250 so I was expecting a check about $400+ the next pay date. No check at all! I've written to them and they just replied me with their CDR policy. I've asked them if their CDR means that all sales generated before CDR are null? No answer at all! So I need your help to clarify that situation! :confused:

    Thanks

    The screenshot shows 2 sales and you're gonna lose all your money if you don't make a sale soon :D

    EDIT: Dude, now i get your point. You think that balance forward is a sale... - am I right? They just forward your balance over every two weeks. And the reason you are losing your money is, that you aren't making any sales or having any action at all.
    So after 3 months (i think it was 3 months) of no action they will start to take account maintenance charges ;)

    This is got to be the funniest thread ever :). Anyway: Each new line in the paychecks sections shows your current balance. The time between each new line is one pay period, or 2 weeks. So, it looks like, for the first 4 months of using clickbank you had a single sale, then you made another one, and that's it. After 3 months passed, clickbank considered your account to be dormant, and your balance started decreasing each pay period.

    gbjuno,

    Maybe I'm misuderstanding something here bigtime, but I think what happened is that you have completely confused sales and paychecks!

    Your screenshot shows that there were only TWO periods where you had any sales at all - look at the credits column. Those are essentially sales for any given pay period, i.e. the amount of money credited to you account. From the amounts it looks like you had only two sales in total.

    You haven't made a single sale since 2009-06-24. And that's why you are losing money - ClickBank considers your account inactive.

    The screenshot is from the Paychecks page in Clickbank. If you want to see sales, click on the Transactions link under Reporting.

    Dude, I know this is all bad news for you, but this thread is still pretty damn funny. :)

    @gbjuno: Clickback didn't scam you, but I'm afraid you have scammed yourself - by failing to read those charts properly. Sorry :-/

    Clickbank's policies are a scam, shame on anyone for defending them.

    If it's a policy, it's a policy and not a scam. Nobody is obliged to use Clickbank if they're unhappy with their terms.

    By the way, what exact CB policies are you unhappy about? So far, I've found them to be quite reasonable. I'm not picking a fight, just interested.

    If you haven't met the payment method requirements yet, you still won't get the money. You have to have something like payment by five different individuals to get the money the first time.

    Dude you're funny, seriously. Are playing a dummy or are really one?
    You need to meet the following requirements:

    * Sales made with 5 or more different credit card numbers; and,

    * Sales made with two different payment methods (either Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal). Note: PayPal purchases do not count toward the minimum 5 different credit card numbers.

    You should stick to "Get paid to Click" campaign's ;)

    sure you do :rolleyes:

    you just aren't smart enough to read the most basic instructions and then accuse Clickbank of scamming you.
