    Think about it though, if CB was having cash problems I think they would have problems paying. I'm pretty sure all affiliates/merchants are getting paid, as I haven't seen any people bitching and whining about not getting their paycheques.

    But if you look at other network forums, you see a shitload of others complaining about how this network owes them X number of dollars and haven't been paid in 2-3 months etc. That's when you know the network is in trouble.

    So all these stupid theories about CB being broke or scrubbing sales etc are pretty far fetched. Start hypothesizing when you stop getting your ten thousand dollar paycheques.

    I completely understand Why my sales are down for CB. The products I mostly promote are to entertain and thus aren't warranted during this time of economic crisis. And two, it's CB ritual to have issues with counting sales after an update. And apparently they had an update not to long ago, and like clockwork sales are lower. It's just the facts. Every single time they 'update', a lot of affiliates suffer lower sales. And each and every time here comes NCMedia proclaiming his love for CB and their perfection.

    I think we get it NCMedia, CB works for you. And maybe we're all just losers who just happen to suck at affiliate marketing. It can't possibly be partly CB's fault right?

    Your words of confirmation don't help.

    And I don't think CB is going broke or they're stealing sales. I just think their system of processing orders sucks.

    I've had more sales today then I've had all week. And that's not saying much.

    I work with many other affiliate networks, which a lot have their own problems as well, but they're a lot better then Clickbank I can tell you. As a publisher CB is a goldmine. And you know this. As an affiliate it has gotten to a point where it isn't worth it anymore. I stopped my PPC ads for CB over 6 months ago. I'm all free traffic now, and I don't hate it.

    I just wish CB was open a little more and they didn't try to hide their faults.

    I'm not stupid, we're not stupid.

    It can be, and is partially their fault, and I agree they have problems using paypal as their processor. Thanks for the banter king.

    Not calling anybody stupid mate, again apologies for offending you or puffing out my chest. I'm out of here best of luck with whatever moves you make.

    You're right. No one is. Hence why I'm walking away from it. DRRRR

    I'll whine all I want. I didn't invest all this time to get screwed over.

    What are you a cheerleader? Quite productive of you. Hypocrite.

    Well I can honestly say there is nothing wrong with clickbank here on my end. The only time I seen huge inconsistencies was from september 9th till about the 20th. I emailed clickbank during that time, and my sales slowly climbed back up. I also added more campaigns, and expanded existing campaigns, to raise my level of consistency. Even still I have had the odd shit day, which is mainly due to the economy. I am sorry to say, but it is.

    Whether the theory of your sales will suck unless you email clickbank and bitch holds true or not, I don't know...

    So you just simply email clickbank, and your sales bounce back up? That's fishy. What did you email them? What was their response?

    I'm new to clickbank, but I noticed a dry spell during the time you pointed out, as well as another one now.

    I'd put a little more blame on the economy and people have just had to cut spending back on things they don't need.

    Interesting, do you write asking if there's a problem, or what? I don't expect you to produce the email, but can you give some insight into what you wrote them?

    I just bitched that their shit was messing up, and I was recieving emails from people who couldn't purchase for no apparent reason. But I mean that was back in september when they actually did have some problems when the new payperiod structure started. As far as I can say, its all good here now.

    It might be the anti fraud measures being used for credit card processing. I just received an email from another affiliate program that said their sales dropped considerably in late September. After investigating, they found that the anti-fraul tool, Verified by Visa, was declining many more sales than it used to. They turned it off and right away their sales increased by more than 50%. Then after talking to some of the top people in the industry found out that it was happening to many others also. There have been many reports of affiliates saying people are emailing them saying their credit card is declined, so I think this is the more likely culprit.

    There is only one reason that clickbank is broke, that's because it's affiliates are broke and can't push the products E.g. Economic climate or people are not spending their money any more which again would lead back to the financial crisis.

    Clickbank have no risk that's what makes their business model sound. Clickbank just site in there office all day waiting for the sales to come in where is the risk in that, while the merchants and the affiliates spend all the money and take all the risk.

    I made it very clear that I was frustrated with what things were going on. I asked them to check into my account and not send back a "stupid template" reply.

    Good Move.

    I don't think Clickbank is so stupid to steal our commission. Maybe your marketing method has some problem
