Clickbank has emerged as one of the popular affiliate network among bloggers and affiliates. So, to prevent fraud and maintain the quality of their marketplace Clickbank has introduced their new policy CDR known as customer distribution requirement.  So, every affiliate must have to qualify the CDR in order to receive its payment.

According to Clickbank CDR:-

Clickbank will withhold payment of any balance until an account shows a minimum of 5 sales using at least two of the following payment methods:

  • American Express
  • Carte Bleue
  • Diners Club
  • Discover
  • ELV (European Direct Debit)
  • JCB
  • Maestro
  • MasterCard
  • PayPal
  • Visa

This CDR will apply for one time only. So, if you are completely unaware of it than you might have to take this as your concern. If you are unable to meet the CDR than your account may put as dormant account.

According to Clickbank dormant policy:-

Accounts with a positive balance but no earnings for an extended period of time are considered dormant. Dormant accounts are subject to a charge of $1 per pay period after 90 days of no earnings, $5 per pay period after 180 days of no earnings, and $50 per pay period after 365 days of no earnings. It is your responsibility to manage your account to prevent dormant fees. Clickbank will not notify you when your account is dormant.

So, now the question arises that how to meet the Clickbank CDR. Here are the few tips to meet the Clickbank CDR without any issues.

Diversify your traffic

You have to diversify your traffic. That means you have to use different traffic sources rather than using a single method. This will help you to get sales from different payment options.

Raise your payment threshold

I suggest you to never put your payout threshold at $10. This will put your account as dormant if you are unable to make sales from two different payment options. Always put your payment threshold above the $100.

Don’t use junk traffic and Avoid Self promotion.

Don’t use junk traffic sources like traffic exchanges, PTC sites, fiverr traffic etc. because most of the traffic coming from these sources is useless. I also suggest you to avoid self promotion.
