The ClickBank E-Commerce Solution

0 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 cheques 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 (G.S.T.)

and Harmonized Sales Tax (H.S.T.) 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 G.S.T. and

H.S.T. 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.

be your e-commerce solution!
