    Hi all

    If anyone can chip in, that'd be great.

    I've read that Clickbank charge you if you dont make a sale in x amount of months.

    Say for example you made $200 in sales, you got the money out and you have a period where you don't get any sales and Clickbank begin to charge.

    Can you cancel the account with them? I'm aware you can 'buy' something for cheap from you to re activate the not sold in x months issue... but I dont want to sell $200 of products, to then find im charged 5$ a day (or whatever the charge is) because I haven't had any sales.

    Anyone know?

    If I'm not mistaken, they only charge you if you have not made any sales in the given time period AND have money in your account. It's only really a concern for those who haven't met the minimum requirements to cash out the first time.

    Here, I found the exact rule on the site:

    The dormant thing is kind of garbage. I can't remember where I saw it, but I once saw someone complaining about a few grand he had in an account slowly deteriorate away. He had his payout set at like 5k or something. Set your payout as low as possible and you don't really have to worry about it.

    Like others have said, set minimum payout and you will be fine.

    It only applies if you have money in the account and you don't withdraw it (or you are below minimum payout). Cant remember exactly how long the account has to be inactive, but it was a reasonably long time.
