Today I signed up for Click2Sell, a possible Clickbank competitor.
I found some interesting facts about them.
Like point 5 of their Terms and Conditions:
Click2Sell provides a platform for third-party sellers and buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. But Click2Sell is not involved in the actual transaction. When buyers make a purchase from you through your website, they are purchasing the product from you and not from Click2Sell.
That means, Click2Sell is just a
payment platform and they will not be involved in resolving any disputes between you and your customers related to or arising out of any transaction!
You have to take care of refunds and solve all problems yourself. Read point 11 of their Terms and Conditions.
The main reason for signing up is to keep an eye on this new affiliate network.
But I found some interesting features too.
The first thing that caught my eye was the ability to use Moneybookers.
I’ve been using them for years now as an alternative for PayPal and I’ve nothing but good things to report about them.
They’re more popular in Europe, because, before PayPal offered the option, your Moneybookers account was directly connected to your bank account which made transfers to and fro a breeze.
A highly recommended service, certainly as a PayPal alternative.
Another striking feature of Click2Sell are their financial settlements. In contrast to Clickbank, where you have to pay a one-time activation fee of $49.00, Click2Sell is free to join and has multiple currency options.
Click2Sell charges a flat fee for each transaction, varying from 1 US dollar for products less than $19,99 to US $3 for product higher than $40. I think that’s a nice fee, since there are no more percentages or other hidden costs. Merchants who sell in EUR or GBP will pay an equivalent fee converted to their selected currency.
Customers can pay using WorldPay, Authorize.Net, PayPal, Google Checkout and Moneybookers.
The vendor also have to pay the affiliates (8.4). Affiliates may not be very happy with that, but Click2Sell at any time and in its sole discretion may choose to pay any Affiliates their Affiliate Commissions or any part of it that you owe (13.4).
Commissions can be paid through PayPal and Moneybookers and mass payment to PayPal only requires one push of a button.
Affiliate commissions can be as high as 95%.
Another great feature is the possibility to set up a campaign for each product you want to promote as an affiliate. It enables you to track every link and see how successful it is.
Products you can sell at Click2Sell are not limited to digital ones only. You can also tangible products and membership sites with recurring billing. You can unsubscribe a member and members can unsubscribe themselves, but I couldn’t find an option to delete them from your membership site automatically.
While Click2Sell still is very small (65 products in their marketplace at the time of writing this), it may have a good chance to compete with Clickbank and Paydotcom since they have a few nice and attractive features.
Check them out today and let me know what you think about them.
