How does the ClickBank Marketplace work?
The ClickBank Marketplace simplifies the process of finding products to promote. Using the specialized search function, affiliates can browse products by category and use the filter tool to fine-tune search results by language, category, offer type, and more.
When an affiliate finds a product they want to promote, the affiliate generates a HopLink (also known as a referral tracking link) that combines the affiliate’s account nickname and the seller's account nickname, and then encrypts it for security. Any sales made via this link are tracked and the affiliate will receive commission according to the product’s commission percentage.
Because all of the transactions are facilitated via ClickBank, affiliates do not have to be concerned that they will not receive their commission from the sale. This process is automated and taken care of by ClickBank.
Accessing the ClickBank Marketplace
The ClickBank Marketplace is accessible to ClickBank Affiliates and Sellers who are logged in to their ClickBank Account. You can access the Marketplace from your primary (aka master) account navigation side bar by clicking the Affiliate Marketplace tab.
Or, you can access the Affiliate Marketplace by clicking the Marketplace tab in your nickname account.
NOTE: To favorite and save offers, you must access the marketplace from your nickname account.
As an affiliate, once you access the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace, you can drill down to find the product that is right for you. Click on the “how to” article that best suits your searching needs:
- How do I use the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace basic search function?
- How do I use the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace advanced search function?
- How do I search by category in the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace?
Each ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace Listing displays a panel of statistics that provides data about the seller's current conversions.
Direct Connection to Sellers and Affiliate Tools
Depending on what the seller has made available, listings will contain seller contact information and an affiliate tools page link. As an affiliate, you may want to contact the seller to get a copy of the product to test for promotion, to find out more about the product, or to run some marketing material by them before using it on your promotional platform.
When you have found the product that you want to promote, simply click the Promote button in the listing.
Clicking this will prompt the Creating a HopLink box to appear. Some sellers require affiliates to be pre-approved before promoting their product.The dialogue box will explain the next steps if that’s the case. If the seller does not require pre-approval, you will be able to make a HopLink (also known as a referral tracking link) in the dialogue box and use it in your promotional content.
