NOTE – If you plan to operate as a vendor, you must pay a one-time activation charge once your first product has been approved. This charge is $49.95 for your first account and $29.95 for any additional accounts. See the Creating Your First Product article for more information.

Accepted Countries

We accept affiliates and vendors from over 150 countries. To see a full list of accepted countries, visit our signup page and enter your country name in the Country field. If your country does not appear, you cannot sign up for a ClickBank account. We cannot make any exceptions to this rule.

If you move to a country that is not accepted, you will no longer be able to use your ClickBank account. If you are planning to move to a country that is not accepted, you may want to close your account to avoid forfeiting money.

    If you go here, you should be able to see the user interface. If that doesn't work, file a support ticket.

    Yes, you can link to a product from a YouTube description box, as long as you're following YouTube's terms of use (not spamming, etc.).
