    Hi , dear BHW friends..

    Yeah my problem is this :

    I have made 3 sales from 1 vendor but so long long time I can not make any more . And since i didnt take any payment yet , I have to complete total 5 sales from 5 different Credit cards .

    Question : Am I allowed to make this 2 other sales from other vendors products to get paid ? Or I have to make all of these sales from the same vendor till 5 CC are riched ?

    Any experience would be great , thanks..

    Just 5 sales from different cc numbers. Doesn't matter which vendor or even your own product.

    It could be 5 difference CC numbers for 5 different vendors for all Clickbank cares.

    Only reason they do this is to make sure it's not just someone signing up for an affiliate account just so they could recuperate some of the money they spend. They don't care what vendor or how many vendors.

    That's not true Otrap, they only need 5 orders from 5 different cc. I got my check only with selling 2 products but to more than 5 different buyers

    My explanation must not have been clear, because I was agreeing with this.

    The five different CCs could be selling 1 vendor's product.
    The five different CCs could be selling 5 vendors' products.

    Or anywhere in between.

    I was looking for same answer since i am new and promoting only one product so after 5 sale with 5 different credit card i will get my cheque ... correct me if i am wrong!

    Lets suppose, if we promote 2 products and buyer use same CC for those two products so how clickbank will take this?

    I also read somewhere, buying clickbank product using PAYPAL is not considered as a sale?

    Yes It will be counted as just one sale regarding to reach that 5 , but still it will ad to your net profit , just the trick is u are eligable to withdraw your money after 5 different Credit Card Purchases.You dont lose any sale commission ..

    It will add to your account as money /profit but it it will not be counted again for that initial 5 different CC sales requirement..

    Sorry but this may be off topic.

    Does this mean EVERY SINGLE CB account that wants to cash out needs to have atleast 5 sales?
    What if you got 1 customer that bought the product for $100+ ? Will you be able to cash out?

    Thanks.

    It does mean this, yes, and I've actually run into your scenario. I once promoted something that went for $497, and affiliates got 70% commissions. I made 3 sales. For those who hate math, that's over a grand in affiliate commissions.

    Now, only two of the three were on credit cards. One was on PayPal. My solution? Simple. I have two debit cards (that can be run as credit cards) and a credit card. I knew of an offer that had a $7 downsell with 75% commissions.

    I made three purchases, each with a different card. Brought my total credit cards used to five, and all it cost me was 25% of three $21 purchases (which is $5.25 for the mathematically challenged).

    If you have a few sales, some of which are from paypal you can simply call the AM and ask them to overwrite the limitation, most of the time they are okay with it. That's what I did back a while

    They've gotten pickier about this, though. I've done this twice in the last year, and got "no" both times.

    It's probably a crapshoot, but it's far from a guarantee.

    Ya, this is the one big problem with CB, I wonder about all the hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid commissions they have because of the "5 CC Rule."

    To be honest, they wait so long before withdrawing that most affiliates have probably forgotten and abandoned the accounts by then.

    And as I always tell people about this, believe it or not, this is to keep customers from stealing your commission by deterring them from buying through their own link instead of buying through yours.

    As a policy, it's necessary, even though it sucks.

    It also prevents money held up in dormant accounts from falling away into obscurity, and I'm sure that it makes CB quite a bit of money. There are probably thousands of "once off" folks who make a sale and give up. :p

    And really, if you're looking at more than 90 days between sale #4 with a credit card and sale #5 with a credit card, you're probably not trying hard enough ...

    ... which means you probably don't want that money enough.

    True success comes not to people who chase after it, but to people who stalk it, hunt it down, and beat it into submission.

    Those are the people who come to the realization, at some point, that nobody else TRULY cares whether or not they succeed at something. Some may say they do, such as loved ones, but even they would probably end up admitting that what they really mean is that they want you to be happy and taken care of. That doesn't necessarily mean successful, though.

    It's up to you to make yourself successful. Period. End of story. Nobody else owes you a leg up, a freebie, or even a piece of advice. And trust me, the success is all the more sweet when you've fought tooth and nail to get it.

    And success to a true entrepreneur is like getting your first taste for blood, and immediately becoming forever addicted to the hunt for more. There's nothing like it.

    If someone on this topic is frustrated by the lack of payment from only four credit cards, I sympathize. However, I ALSO recognize that if someone can't get that fifth sale on a credit card within 90 days, it's because they're not thinking any bigger than those four sales (or however many, if there are PayPal payments).

    Sorry if I sound like I'm on a soapbox. I get passionate about this, because I DO want to see others succeed, but I also know that if I help them too much, I may be crippling their ability to develop, and ruining a method or strategy in the process.

    I love to help people understand how Clickbank works. You won't hear me (or most experienced marketers) keeping those things from newbies. Anything regarding how something like Clickbank tracks, or how it's promoted, or assessments of products are things that I (and I know many others as well) will be very candid on.

    However, when it comes to doing your homework, putting in the work, earning your money (be "earning" I don't just mean putting in the work, but putting in profitable work), paying for tools and resources, and anything like that ... you might get a direction, but you will pretty much never get a freebie or a handout.

    It won't help you in the long run anyway. Sure you might get a quick score off of it, but then it will be gone, and you'll be in the same spot.

    You are the captain and crew of your own success. You make the decisions. You plan the strategies. You put in the work to get it all done.

    And if you do it right, you win, and it's a great feeling.

    Cheers.

    Other vendors are okay.
