    My refund rate just moved up to 20%. Could my account be banned for this? Anyone else with the same problem? I'm earning through youtube videos.

    Nope, I don't think so, but your account status might get flagged, so better stay under radar..

    After you go past 20%, you are in danger level, which means that you have problems which needs to be corrected immediately. When you go past 99% it's time to really worry about it. They will cancel your account unless you take action..

    So, nothing to worry about even if you have 20% refund rate.

    What is your niche?
    Some niches like 'how to make money online' have always big refund rate.
    No worries for now.

    A few weeks ago, they modified their algorithm, which made a lot of people's ratings go out of control. I personally went from green to red literally overnight, now slowly trending down and orange. I have not yet heard about anyone being banned because of their color rating, but it's entirely possible we could wake up one day and see mass bannings. Maybe in a week, maybe in two years. Only Clickbank know how great the threat is, and I'm not sure even they know.

    My refund rate was at 23+ % for over a month and nothing happened. It's now down to 19% but funny thing is it was 19.00% a few days ago and after 4 more sales and zero refunds it went up to 19.12%. Makes no sense.

    They count the rates in daily basis I guess. Some times my refund rate goes higher and a few days later they come down again...

    I think that the refund rate is also calculated on the product you sold in last few days.
    If this particular product has let's say 20% refund rate and you only have 15% in your account, I guess that your overall refund rate will bump a bit for a few days but then fall down again.

    Yes, sorry for not being clear enough. They count the last few sales (that has been made in a particular span of time). Once that timespan passes, the refund rate decreases again.

    The refund rate is calculated based on recent refunds (2 months or so), lifetime refunds, and I assume they also throw in product refunds (for all affiliates) and possibly category/niche and global performance as well. Mix all of that together, and you get an algorithm nobody understands, like what Google does.
     
  16. What is up with the high refund rates?
