    ClickBank will withhold payment of any account balance until the following criteria is met:
    Sales made with 5 or more different credit card numbers; and,
    Sales made with two different payment methods (either Visa, MasterCard, PayPal or European Direct Debit(ELV)). Note: PayPal purchases do not count toward the minimum 5 different credit card numbers."

    Is this true and how to bypass this, how if most of the buyer just use their PP account to purchase the products/services.

    I can't control what payment method will be used by every customer..

    Thanks

    So , I will only need 5 customer with different credit card for the first time, and is it has to be 5 different credit cards for each products I promote or for total?

    And after that, in the future, won't be any these requirements anymore?

    Thanks

    Was a pain for me too: I had many PP orders and only 3 credit cards, so I got angry and used my own cc for a purchase (the cheapest thing I could find) and a asked a friend to buy the same thing using her cc. :D

    No way around it. Had the 5th one and then a refund so was down to 4 for a long time. Lots of Paypal which doesn't count, but you'll eventually get there.

    Most of your buyers will use credit cards. I ran my results not long ago (it's posted on the thread "beware clickbank they are become scammers"), and the VAST majority of my buyers use credit cards.

    Not each product. Total. The purpose is to make sure you're not just a customer buying things through your own link and thus robbing an affiliate of commissions, and "per product" really wouldn't do anything to help that.

    Once you hit that one time, you'll never have to worry about it again.

    I am just assuming that most of buyer will use PayPal since it's easier to do refund and chargeback than credit card.

    Clickbank are thieves, every month you don't make a sale they take your money until it's all gone.

    I'm telling you that, from well over 1,000 sales' experience this year alone, that that is not the case.

    I believe it is, yes, provided you read the terms and stay diligent.

    I have never looked into the ratio of refunds between PayPal and credit cards. Clickbank refunds vary depending on the niche, but I can say this: Clickbank just released a new protocol in which any vendor with a refund rate over 15% will incur penalties.

    This will pressure vendors to do as much as they can to keep refund rates low.

    This made me laugh my ass off.

    If a surcharge constitutes thievery, then there are thousands of thieving companies out there.

    Just admit it. You didn't read their terms of service, and then you got pissed because it included something you didn't like.
