Decommissioning of eChecks by ClickBank

This simply great! In the past, I’ve always groaned inwardly whenever I see a payment made via eChecks. Those sales usually ended up as revoked sale, i.e. those eChecks bounced!

Here’s the scoop directly from ClickBank’s mouth:

After careful consideration, ClickBank will no longer accept eChecks as a payment method as of 2008-04-15. Please make certain to update your website(s) to reflect this change.

eChecks account for less than 1 percent of total ClickBank sales volume, yet have a significant fraud and revoked sale rate. We recently ran an order form split test to determine what impact eChecks have on sales conversion.

The test showed no significant difference in conversion rate whether the eCheck option was enabled or not. These results indicate the presence or absence of eChecks as a payment option does not significantly influence customers’ purchase decision.

After 2008-04-15, customers can still pay from their checking account by using a Visa/MC debit card or a bank account funded PayPal account.
