Attention New Affiliates: If you are an affiliate that signed up for a ClickBank account after 10/29/19, make sure you navigate from the new Master Account dash to the operational page of ClickBank before proceeding with these instructions.
The ClickBank Marketplace is a space where ClickBank Vendors provide information about the products they offer. Affiliates can search the marketplace to find out more about particular products and vendors—including their available promotional materials and sales statistics.
The ClickBank Marketplace simplifies the process of finding products to promote. Using the specialized search function, affiliates can browse a multitude of products searching by language, category, type, etc.
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 affiliates account nickname and the vendor’s account nickname. Any sales made via this link are tracked and the affiliate will receive commission according to the product’s commission percentage.

Direct Connection to Vendors and Affiliate Tools
Depending on what the vendor bas made available, listings will contain vendor contact information and an affiliate page link. As an affiliate, you may want to contact the vendor 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 “HopLink Generator” dialogue box to appear. Some vendors 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 vendor 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.
