    Sir, where shall we promote our product after copying the promoting link? Should we do that in my clickbank new account which I have created recently or where in my account, it means in which option whether in settings or something?

    Jatin,

    You promote vendors' products in your advertising efforts. This could be in ads on other sites, on your own site or blog, in emails, or elsewhere.

    Hi Owen,

    I have linked Clickbank to Payooner to get the commission to the local account. Should I make any changes in the payment policies, like a check mark on the Direct Transfer?

    But I don't see any details being asked about adding Payooner. I received an email from Payooner that all the Clickbank payments will be transferred to the bank via payooner.  With in the settings> payment policies, I couldn't figure out what needs to be done.

    Regards,

    Blesso.

    What if my nickname is not my true name? Can I still receive my payment or can it still be wired on my payment account?

    Blesso,

    The How We Pay You article has a section about payment methods, which explains how to make sure Payoneer is connected correctly.

    Ronnelle,

    Your account nickname doesn't have to be your actual name. Take a look at the How We Pay You article for more information about how to get paid.

    Ada,

    If a customer requests a refund, all portions of their payment are returned to them. That includes the affiliate portion, the vendor portion, and ClickBank's portion.

    Take a look at the Using HopLinks article for information about how to use the generated HopLinks and how Tracking IDs work.

    Abraham,

    If you're talking about the Taxpayer ID requirement discussed in the Creating an Affiliate Account article, that's only for US-based affiliates, so you don't need to worry about it.

    Hi Owen, aside from inserting your promotional link in blogs/ websites, can we promote the link in social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc.?

    Order Form Impression – When a customer follows a Payment Link to your order form. Data on order form impressions is displayed in the Order Form Impressions section. ClickBank filters out Order Form Impressions that come from automated sources.
    What its mean ? I order auto usa traffic i not get paid for it ? Becuse it auto traffic ?!?!

    Kobi,

    Any traffic that's not coming from an actual human is automated, and we do our best not to count it in our reporting, because we're trying to only display customers and potential customers. Bots hardly ever buy anything.

    It's worth noting, too, that you're paid per sale, not per order form visit.

    Hi Owen,

    Is it correct, that conversions will be finally approved and paid 60 days after conversion generations?

  • Avatar
    Owen Allen

    Dany,

    You should be paid sooner than that. Most accounts are paid every two weeks, with a two-week delay, and a portion of the total held in reserve. You can take a look at the How We Pay You article for more information.

    Thank you for the answer, Owen.
    I meant that if a refund period of a product is 60 days (that's what I saw on product landing pages), affiliate has to wait 60 days in order to be paid for specific conversion. Is it correct?
    In general, what is the average refund period for Clickbank products?

    Dany,

    60 days is the default return period, but some vendors can increase or decrease that using an admin-controlled feature.

    Even though refunds can be requested for 60 days, we don't retain all of your account balance until that period has passed. We retain a portion of your balance from one pay period to the next, so that refunds and chargebacks can be covered, but not all of it.

    Can I promote my hoplinks using paid traffic with the direct link or do I need to use a landing page?

    Owen Allen

    Fernando,

    Sure, you can promote HopLinks using paid traffic. Some vendors even have banner ads and similar content that you can use for such promotions on their Affiliate Tools pages.

    How long my clickbank link still live??

    Safia,

    If a product is active and being sold, then an affiliate who promotes that product can make a commission. HopLinks don't expire; as long as the vendor is still active and hasn't created a whitelist that doesn't include you, your HopLinks for that vendor will still work.

     

    Some vendors have different commissions for different affiliates, or have higher commissions for specific products. If you've successfully promoted a product with a commission but haven't received that commission, you can file a support ticket for assistance.

    Approximately how long after a customer makes a purchase will it appear in my ClickBank reports?

    Benjamin,

    The purchase should show up in transactions reporting almost immediately.

    1.If i am putting my affiliate link in the description box in a classified site(where im doing my promotions) the link that i had paste in it, it is not clickable meaning if i click to it to see the product and order form the link does not open and i wonder how does a customer purchase.Must i paste the HTML link in the classified site after i had created it?

    2.So even if i had done 5 sales and didnt recieve a customer, i wll still wont get a commission?

    3.After i had promoted a product and i get customers and i had completed two requirements that its payment threshold and customer distribution requirement how will i know that my paper check now  is ready to be delivered to my bank?

    Sphesihle,

    1. A customer has to follow the link in order to reach the pitch page. If the classified site isn't making links clickable, I'd recommend talking to them about it.

    2. You receive a commission whenever someone buys a product through your promotion. If a hundred people follow your HopLink and five of them make a purchase, you receive a commission for those five sales.

    3. You can take a look at the Paychecks Reporting section of the UI. It will tell you the status of all of your paychecks.
