Part of signing up for a ClickBank account is selecting an account nickname. Your account nickname is a unique identifier that allows for all transactions related to your account, seller or affiliate, to be accurately tracked.
ClickTip: Your account nickname cannot be changed once you have selected it. If you wish to change your nickname, you must sign up for a new ClickBank account and close your existing account.
Account Nickname Uses
Here is how your account nickname is used:
- Signing In
