    Such a helpful article.

    I have a question though

    Does total commissions equals initial sales + upsells?

    Mawufemo,

    Yes, the average values include upsells as well as initial sales. Some statistics only include initial payments or recurring payments, but they're all labeled as such.

    Hello Owen, Please how true is this statement?

    If your account has no earnings over an extended period of time, it is considered dormant. Dormant accounts are subject to charges of:

    • $1 per pay period after 90 days of no earnings
    • $5 per pay period after 180 days of no earnings
    • $50 per pay period after 365 days of no earnings.

    What happens to an affiliate that has not been able to generate sales over this period does this policy still in effects? So does mean one has to abandon his account to create another simply because of this policy? Dont forget it takes some time to master all the sale advertising methods to make sales as a newbie in this game. Why should we be subjected to these?

    Victor,

    That is true - it's explained in more detail in the Dormant Accounts article - but it doesn't apply if your balance is zero. Thus, you don't need to worry about this until after you've begun making sales. Also, it's worth remembering that even a single sale prevents these fees.

    Hi,

    As an affiliate, would I get a portion of a $1 trial payment, or would my commissions only show after the monthly membership of a product gets activated after the trial week?  I am only asking this since I was wondering if I had to wait a week after my campaign before I start to see results in the CB dashboard.

    Zou,

    The affiliate commission is given after ClickBank takes its portion. So, if an initial sale is $1, you won't receive a commission, because ClickBank's portion is 7.5% plus $1. You would receive a commission on any initial or recurring payment that was larger than that, though.

    It's worth noting, too, that vendors can set different commission rates for the initial and recurring payments. The Marketplace displays information about the different commissions offered by vendors.

    Gabriel,

    If you know the vendor's account nickname, you can create a HopLink to promote their products on your own. Take a look at the Using HopLinks article for more information.

    I am so new at this that I am now confused.....once I click promote and do the hoplink, I went and checked to make sure the hoplink was working as described and it was.  Now, everything keeps saying filling out forms for ads?  I have yet to see these?  I have watched every video, etc.  If I have missed something can you redirect me to the video, etc that will explain this more clearly.  I have also read, listened to several videos that say we have to work with the consumers, etc.....building your platform.  Am I misreading this?  I think I am trying to take in too much at one time.....if so please just be honest and tell me to "slow down"  :)

    Daniel,

    Once you have the HopLink, you can use it to promote products. There are a few ways of doing that - one is to purchase ads that use the HopLink, but you can also create your own site and promote products there, or promote products on social media. It's up to you how you do it.

    Hi Owen,

       I am new to this affiliate marketing thing and seem to be a little confused by it, my question for you is How do I create my own site and can I promote these on traffup.net? Thanks...Keven

    Keven,

    There are a variety of tools and hosting platforms on the internet that will let you create and host your own site. You can find one that works for you.

    Once you have your platform, you can get traffic via any means you choose. Keep in mind, when you're selecting methods for driving traffic, that you only get commissions for sales, regardless of traffic volume.

    Allen,

    Does Clickbank works on Cookie Period of Hops/Clicks from HopLinks?

    If not, then if user clicked on 12 NOV 2017 and purchased the Product on 19 NOV 2017 then will it be tracked in system? If not, then in this case how you guys measure this kind of conversions?

    Thanks

    Rahul,

    No. Affiliate credit does not depend on a cookie. In your example, the affiliate who drove the user on 12 November would receive a commission when the user bought the product on 19 November.

    Mike,

    You can use the HopLink to promote the product anywhere you like - on social media, on your own site, in paid ads, or in emails.

    Hello I'm new to clickbank and I was curious to know , when I  hit the promote button , it already has the  nick name but do we have to to put in a tracking id inorder to promote the hotlink ? because everytime I hit create I never see my nick name at the end of the link so the vendor knows to pay me . Can you please explain? Thanks

    Owen Allen

    Roni,

    HopLinks contain your nickname and the vendor's nickname, which is all we need to give you affiliate credit. Tracking IDs are optional, and they let you add additional information for tracking purposes. The Using HopLinks article explains in more detail.

    Thanks for that , so I ended up figuring that out. I'm stuck again because I made my hoplink now I'm trying to figure out how to promote it ? if I want to post my affiliate link on Facebook or Pinterest do I need to open a business account ? Can I just post it without opening up an account thank you
