So confused about how much CB actually pays you.

    Last newb question here I promise I know these can get annoying but we're all here to help right, at least most of us?

    I'm at the marketplace right now on CB and for example the average sale for this product is $84.99 right. Then when I click on "promote" it says I will earn 65% for each sale. So is this 65% of $84.99 or what? There are literally 5 other numbers listed under this product as "stats" and I am just so lost. I am such a noob I understand. The other things are: initial $/sale , avg%/sale , avg rebill total , avg%/rebill , grav.

    So what the hell do these mean? Or better yet, how much commission would I earn for selling this specific product?

    I really do apologize if this is a very dumb question but I really am so eager to start this tomorrow morning to have some cash asap. You guys are awesome btw, have been learning so so so much. Amazing forum. :).

    Example:

    Product: $100.
    Clicbank then takes 7.5% commission and $1 = $91.50

    $91.50 is the final amount to be split with you and the vendor.
    So if your commission is 65%, you will get: $59.475

    Then during payout period, depending on your account's risk, Clickbank will again take a percentage off for "reserves". The usual standard is 10%, but if your account is risky, it can be higher like 20%, 30%, 40% or even 50%.

    So let's say you manage to earn $500 and it's the accounting period, 10% is taken awaay, so you will receive $450 in wire transfer.


    I usually ignore avg/sale stats and such. But gravity is important. The higher it is, the more others are promoting.

    And you will receive about 50.4502375 for each sale of that $84.99 product.

    Hey what do you mean by account risk? Do they judge this by your amount of sales or something? How does CB determine your account risk is the better question I guess. Oh yeah and does CB pay by PayPal or through checks? Thank you so much btw I can't express how much I appreciate this place.

    you also need to note that they take out like $5-$10 a month from your account if it is inactive for a month. (if you dont get any sales that month and have a positive balance)

    IMO, acc risk determined by refund and chargeback rate.

    CB only use checks, payoneer, direct payment and wire-transfer (i use this, but it cost me $35 per transfer)

    P.S. = to other BHW members, please correct me if i'm wrong

    I use clickbank for making some cash but i have to admit those clickbank rules sucks... Ex.last weeek i earned 260$ and they only send me 190$. Does anyone know weekly/biweekly payment affect the amount they pay? I go with weekly payment, maybe they change more for this?!?

    They need to keep some money in your account in case of refunds or chargebacks, after all they keep a 60-day refund policy (sometimes even up to 90 days)

    If you are promoting good products and making sales every now and then, you don't really have to worry about that - you will get back all your money eventually.

    from the total price, deduct the clickbank earnings (it is 7% i think) and then apply the percentage of your commission.

    You get 75% - 7% fees usually.
