    Imagine this scenario:

    You sign up for Clickbank and make a few sales. A week or two goes by and you get a paycheck from all those sales. But then, one of the customers gets a refund. You're a few dollars in the hole now, aren't you?

    I know they just withhold it from your next sale, but what if you never make another sale? Do they just accept the loss, or do they send you a bill? I'm just curious as to what exactly happens in this situation.

    They send someone to your place to f*** you up. Good question I assume they take the loss. What else could they do?

    Nah, once you meet the initial requirement to have 1) orders from two different methods of payment and 2) five different sales, they send out payment at 2 week intervals. I made a sale on the 16th, and they sent a check out on the 19th.

    They would just accept the loss (in case you never make a sale again), cant think of anything else they can do to cover for the loss.

    That's why they have that damn 10% return allowance so they don't have to send you to collections for a $50 refund.

    Yep thats correct although it's not 10% on all accounts, if you are promoting IM products your looking at 50% holdback and then when they do pay it back they halve it again, it's a nice pension plan though.

    That's crazy, I saw that they say 10% is the "standard" return allowance. So is it 25% across all IM products, just certain ones? I don't promote them anyways, just curious.

    Your account stays negative until you make enough sales to bring it back to positive $ I've had this happen before. They don't take money from your bank accounts or anything.

    I think it's done on an account by account basis and all depends on what products you promote, so say you sell $10k worth of products then they will deduct any refunds so maybe taking it down to $8k almost immediately.

    Then on payday they will halve it to $4k and put $4k in a reserve, so from $10k sales you maybe get a $4k paycheck if you are lucky, then about 3 months later they release the $4k and normally halve it again and release the remaining $2k in another 3 months time.

    During that time though refunds keep flooding in so from $10k sales you will probably actually get around $5k if promoting IM products spread over 6 months.

    Obviously if you promote products other than IM then your probably only on 10% holdback as the refunds are much less.
