    So I used to write some eHow articles that I totally forgot about, not sure why the hell I originally put my threshold so high but I did. So my payment threshold was like $500. Well little did I know my ehow articles were ranking and I wasn't using clickbank but making money off them. So from September 2012 to last month when I logged onto clickbank again they had slowly been deducting money because I didn't withdraw that money. It started as $1 then went to $5 a week then it jumped to $50 a week (fuckers). So the month that I go on to clickbank they just deducted all my money hah. It's my fault and not a lot of money, but would be nice to get that $400 back. Probably no way huh? Anyone get there money back from something like this?

    I don't think there's a way to get your money back. But still you could try contacting them!

    Can someone explain it to me. Was it because of (how long?) you were away or because
    of your payment threshold?

    Both, if you set your payment threshold too high and don't withdraw, they start to take away money after some time. After about 4 months they start taking away $1 every week, then after some more months they take $5 week, then it jumps to $50 a week. I'm sure if you were away for long it wouldn't matter if your threshold was lower, they would just keep sending you checks.

    Nice little policy to rip off webmasters for their work. I truly despise crap affiliates like that. Complain to clickbank. Say something like, you were a victim of some local storm/disaster and lost your credentials and want you money back ;)

    You most likely won't be getting that money back since that sneaky stuff is stated in their terms of service.

    I think its because they have to pay to cancel the check,they have a 90day claim so if you don't claim your check within that time,the check gets automatically canceled. I had a check sent to me but they didn't explain properly what you need to have in the payee section,I only had my first name on there and the bank denied it as they need your surname there also. I contacted CB and they said if I send back the check then it would be free to send one back out,but since i'm not living inside the US it will cost me quite abit of money,so other option was to just get it canceled and request a new one but pay a fee of $20 since they have to pay that for canceling the check.I think that's why you had to pay a fine for not claiming your checks.

    It's your own fault. Clickbank take money away because they don't want long term liabilities on their books and who can blame them?

    Assuming you're correct (which I doubt), then it's CB's responsibility to weed out these "long term liabilities". But it doesn't give them an excuse to help themselves to the fruits of anyone's labor.

    I truly hope that this model isn't adopted by all affiliate sites.

    It's because you agreed to this when you signed up with ClickBank, absolutely nothing you can do, unfortunately.

    Here is the answer for your concern.

    https://accounts.clickbank.com/accounting.html#A17

    It's their "DORMANT ACCOUNTS Policy".

    How could they weed them out? That would be incredibly expensive and they'd have to charge higher fees.

    I'm glad they do this, it keeps the fees low for regular affiliates and vendors like myself.
