Hi everyone! Like everyone else, whenever I created a product, I looked for the appropriate places to list it for affiliates. That routinely meant ClickBank and PayDotCom. I love ClickBank – they handle the affiliate portion for me. It’s worth the amount they charge to me.
But today I got rid of PDC completely. I replaced those links with direct payment processor links in PayPal. I’m bypassing PDC completely.
I had forgotten I was even using it – that’s how irrelevant it is to me. It makes sales, don’t get me wrong – but they pay through PayPal anyway, so why am I giving them a cut? Oh, for affiliates, right. Well I prefer ClickBank for that.
Using PDC, I always forgot about paying the fees and the affiliates until I got a reminder. So then I’d log in and send payments. It sucked because I like to be prompt with everything.
The only time I remembered PayDotCom was when I’d get one of those annoying telemarketer phone calls they do. That’s another reason to give them up.
Oh, and last? Something always nags in my head about PDC’s owner. Just something I’d rather separate from. I don’t know what’s true or what’s not. Just read way too much on that site w/his name on it and it makes me wary.
Why am I even telling you this? Because if you have affiliate links to one of my products via PDC, like Building an eBook Empire, etc., you’d better replace them with another product or a link via ClickBank.
