ClickBank.com can offer you multiple solutions for
your e-commerce business. Here are some of the
advantages of using ClickBank.
1. Accept Credit Cards Without a Merchant Account
If your product is downloadable (such as electronic
books or software), ClickBank may be an excellent
solution for you. For a $ 49.95 initial fee, you can
process credit cards and on-line checks for $ 1.00
per transaction plus 7.5% of sales.
2. Start Your Own Affiliate Program
With ClickBank, you have your own built-in affiliate
program. You decide what commission (from 1% to 75%)
you would like to pay your affiliates.

5. Eliminate Sales Tax Problems
Are you registered for Value Added Tax (VAT) for
online transactions for European Union (EU)
countries since July 1, 2003?
Are you collecting the appropriate state or
provincial sales taxes?
If you are a Canadian, are you aware of your
obligation to collect Goods and Services Tax (GST)
and Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) on Internet
Again, ClickBank may be your solution. ClickBank
is registered for EU purposes and adds the
appropriate VAT to each transaction.
As well, to deal with ClickBank, you must agree to
sell your product to them. ClickBank then resells
your product to their customers. Thus, ClickBank
becomes the retailer responsible for collecting
sales taxes – not you. Obviously, ClickBank will
not be subject to sales taxes in most jurisdictions.
Since ClickBank is located in the United States and
can only sell or use the products it sells from
there, it would appear that Canadian GST and
HST would not be applicable to them.
Of course, this is not legal advice. To determine
your liability for sales and similar taxes, consult
your lawyer and accountant.
