What is clickbank?

If you want to make money or join the company. They need creditable, reliable and legal.  I hope this article will help you understand about clickbank and ensure you can start with this affiliate network and help you reach your goal.


ClickBank is an online platform where people sell information products and create affiliate programs for their products. Clickbank has been around since 1998 and is thus one of the pioneers in the field of affiliate marketing. Basically, Clickbank more than one affiliate network, it is actually an online retailer, because with every transaction ClickBank is the seller. ClickBank has specialized in digital products and acts as an online merchant and affiliate network simultaneously, thus facilitating sellers and potential partners (affiliates) working.

The cycle looks like that retailers create a digital product (ebooks, videos, software, coaching, audio, membership etc.) and adjust it at Clickbank. Clickbank will checks the product and the sales page and there is free for sale and it appears in ClickBank Marketplace. The seller can then sell his product on regular routes – the entire sales process (payment, e-mail alerts, cancellations, etc.) accepts Clickbank.

The other big advantage is that very many affiliates pay attention to the product through the widespread use ClickBank and distribute it to the seller and get a commission for it much higher (on average between 50 and 75%). Thus, the seller, although much less the selling price due to the sales via the Affiliates, but a much more rapid and free distribution of its product and therefore sales.

How does clickbank paid to affiliate?

Clickbank will paid  when you get sales were made through at least 5 different credit card numbers, and two different payment methods (Visa / Mastercard / PayPal / debit). This condition prevents Affiliates could abuse the ClickBank Affiliate program by using their own account to make unauthorized collection of rebates and / or discounts on their purchases.

Furthermore ClickBank holds a small portion of the outstanding balance and writes it to the account only after 60 days amends to a “residue” of any quality problems with products (returns, cancellations, etc.) are to be.


The payment threshold can be set from $10 up to $1,000,000. The default setting is $100, you can manually set down on up to $ 10 – but you have to keep in mind that a fee of $ 2.50 applies per check.

The other possibility is that of a direct bank transfer to the account. But here’s a small hook, for a transfer to the account will be activated only after two valid check. Billing cycles are every two weeks. So if you have received a check after a month twice, so you can unlock for the convenient “Online Banking” and gets his money without detours directly to the account. Before there is a payoff, some criteria must be met. You can read more details in ClickBank Accounting Policy.

Check whether there is any demand for the product. That you recognize the one hand on the already sold amount and the number of Gravity (A number that indicates how many affiliates in what quantity products through Clickbank selling) and by corresponding Google search.
How effective is the sales page?

The You check for yourself and you read through the sales page. Imagine you had a strong interest for the product.

Keeps you playing the sales page? Shows them you on the benefits of the product and they answered the most important question: “Why the customer needs just this product?”
Check if there is an affiliate page or a support area for affiliates. If the seller is important that many sales are generated, it has also created a specially designed sales page, with free texts, banners, mailings, reviews, etc.
Check the support of the seller, by asking a potential customer typical question – because the support is decisive for whether customers are satisfied or not and whether they keep the product or return again.
