How To Connect Your PayPal Account to ClickBank?


Note:
 If you choose not to offer PayPal® as a method of payment to customers by connecting PayPal to your ClickBank account you must remove it as a payment option from your order form. 

Additionally, the currency for the sale must be in U.S. dollars and you must have U.S. dollars as an accepted currency in your PayPal account.

Recap

PayPal® is a secure digital payment platform available in over 200 markets around the world. ClickBank customers can purchase products using any extra credit or debit card on the ClickBank order form. ClickBank Vendors can also add PayPal to the order form as an optional form of payment.

Note: PayPal is an optional customer payment method, not an affiliate payout mechanism. Only clickbank vendors who wish to offer PayPal to customers need to follow these simple steps .

First : Clickbank Requirements .

You must match the following criteria in order to offer PayPal as a payment method.

You must meet the following criteria in order to offer PayPal as a payment method:

  1. You need to be an active ClickBank Vendor and have completed the one-time activation fee. 
  2. You must have a ClickBank master account.
  3. All clickbank products in a given offer, with the exception of free trials, must have a sales price greater than or equal to $7*. This includes all clickbank upsell flows and order bumps. 
  4. The currency for the sale must be in U.S. dollars and you must have U.S. dollars as an accepted currency in your PayPal account.
  5. The offer cannot contain a traditional or upsell joint venture (JV) or affiliate referral contract
  6. The full offer, including any subscription products and upsell flows, cannot contain an affiliate commission rate over 90%.
Note :

If you wish you offer PayPal on orders containing products priced below $7, the following price and commission thresholds apply:

  • Products from $1–$2.99 = 60% maximum commission
  • Products from $3–$6.99 = 80% maximum commission
  • Products $7 and up: 90% commission

PayPal is available on free trials.

Second : Potential Paycheck Discrepancy 

Once you have connected your PayPal account to your ClickBank Vendor account, you may notice a discrepancy in your paycheck amount and your expected earnings. 

Funds that you receive via PayPal are not included in your ClickBank paycheck. Make sure to factor in any funds you have received via PayPal when comparing your paycheck amount to your expected earnings amount.

ClickBank Vendors will see a “Partner Commission” on their order details and account reporting within their PayPal account. This commission represents the following:

1) ClickBank’s fee associated with selling the product through ClickBank

2) affiliate commissions, if any, due as part of the transaction, and

3) applicable sales or VAT tax charged on the transaction.

ClickBank vendors who opt to offer PayPal as a customer payment method receive payments for those transactions in PayPal, noted with a PYPL-NEW payment type in the ClickBank transaction log.

You cannot receive payments from PayPal for any other ClickBank sales. Payments for all ClickBank sales except PYPL-NEW transactions are only issued via the payment steps listed below.
