How to Connect PayPal to ClickBank
By Michael Cox
ClickBank does more than just track your product sales and assign commissions when you sell others' products -- it's also a payment service that accepts credit cards and even handles recurring payments for your company. ClickBank can pay either with a check mailed directly to you, or via a direct deposit into your company's bank account. While you can't have ClickBank deposit directly into your PayPal account, you can use PayPal and your bank account to access your company's ClickBank payments through PayPal.
Log in to your company's PayPal account, click "Profile" to open the Profile page, and then click "Add or Update Bank Account."
Click "Add Bank" and enter the requested information, including the account and routing numbers from one of your business checks.
Confirm your bank account by clicking the "Confirm" link beside your connected bank account. PayPal makes two small deposits of less than $1 into your bank account. After you confirm the deposit amounts, log in to your PayPal account, go to the "Confirm" link again, and then enter the deposit amounts.
Log in to your ClickBank account, and then click "Account Settings."
Click the "Edit" link beside "Payment Information," choose "Direct Deposit" and enter your bank information, and then click "Save Changes."
ClickBank requires you to receive two paper paychecks before you can choose "Direct Deposit." Also, if you change your ClickBank account's email address or password, you won't be able to change your payment method for seven days.
To transfer money from your company's bank account into your PayPal account, click "Add Money," followed by "Bank Transfer" to make a one-time transfer or "Balance Manager" to set up regular transfers. When your PayPal balance falls below the amount of a purchase, PayPal will use your bank account to make the purchase. A transfer takes three to five days to complete.
When you link your company's bank account to your PayPal account, PayPal removes the account's spending limit.
