Free Sign Up for Affiliates
Not that big of a deal really. It’s to affiliate management companies advantage to have free sign up for affiliates since they receive a small percentage of each sale, which is how they make their money.
Free Sign Up for Vendors!
Now THAT’S a big deal. Even Clickbank charges, as of writing this $50.00 per account. The free vendor sign up is for the first product. After that, as of writing this, there’s a ridiculously low lifetime fee of less than $30.00 to submit an UNLIMITED number of products.
Individual Sales or Landing Pages
Yes, my Clickbank affiliates all land on a single page… Though this could lead to multiple sales, it could easily add to confusion on the part of a prospective buyer. This could be fixed by paying $50.00 for another Clickbank account and wait for orders of that product with five credit cards to be paid OR I can set up a new product through Paydotcom and assign a completely separate sales page WITH the same account. Now my affiliates may select product which only go with the theme if their website if they have one.
Individual Commissions Per Product
Unlike Clickbank different commissions can be setup per individual product.
Products Can Be Linked
Originally, I was sending my affiliates to Clickbank for a single simple code to represent all my products. With this new feature, the merchant has the option of linking all or some of his/her products together. Thus ensuring affiliates are paid for upgrades during sales and even after the original product is purchased by the customer.
Affiliates are paid for subscription services.
Immediate Payment Through Paypal
For security, Clickbank makes vendors wait until five credit cards have been used before mailing a check. Paydotcom vendors receive immediate payment. Now vendors may withhold payment for affiliates up to 30 days depending on their return policy.
Return Policy Up to The Vendors!
One of Clickbank merchants’ huge complaints is Clickbank’s easy return policy. Paypal will negotiate with complaints but they seem to understand both parties have rights. Since Paydotcom only manages the affiliate program, they have nothing to do with any negotiations.
Physical Products Can Be Sold Through PDC!
That’s correct. You’re not limited to digital products, though they continue to be the most popular due to ease of delivery and instant gratification of customers. Anything from CDs to clothing may be sold through Paydotcom.
A Great Support Forum
I am lucky to be able to state I have never been in such a helpful, giving forum. Other forums I belong to are quite helpful, don’t get me wrong, but I find questions answered in that forum quickly and clearly. In fact most of the questions new vendors or affiliates may have may already be found in the forum using the search feature.
