Avoiding Dormant ClickBank Accounts

All ClickBank members need to be aware of ClickBank’s dormant account charge that can be deducted from an account that is not generating earnings.

What triggers a dormant account?

A ClickBank account can become dormant if there is a positive balance in the account but no earnings have been made for a 90-day period. Once an account becomes dormant, ClickBank will begin deducting $1 charges every pay period from the account until there is no balance or it becomes active again. Deduction amounts increase to $5/pay period after 180 days and $50/pay period after 365 days.

Read ClickBank’s Dormant Accounts 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.

How to avoid a dormant account?

To avoid letting an account go dormant, ensure the account meets the following:

  1. ClickBank’s CDR requirements have been met
  2. A payment threshold is in place that can be met in less than 90 days.
    Note: Set the payment threshold in the ClickBank Account Settings page under Payment Information.

How to identify a dormant account?

To know if a ClickBank account has gone dormant, members can login into their ClickBank accounts and view the Reporting – Transactions page. If the account is dormant, any of the following item codes may appear in the Paycheck Detail table’s Item column:

  • chrg-0002 – Dormant account charge – 90 days
  • chrg-0003 – Dormant account charge – 365 days
  • chrg-0006 – Dormant account charge – 180 days dormant
