Affiliates are fantastic when it comes to growing your business, especially ClickBank affiliates! Here at ClickBank our affiliates share in the revenue generated from every sale they promote and lose that revenue if a sale is returned, so they are invested in referring satisfied customers!
But sometimes for one reason or another, you may want to block a specific affiliate from promoting your products.
The Affiliate Blacklist Manager is just another tool in the Vendor Toolbox that gives you options in managing the affiliates that promote your products.
This tool allow you to:
- Blacklist affiliates from promoting your account.
- Update/Remove affiliates that you have blacklisted.
You will also have visibility to view all of the affiliates that have been blacklisted from promoting your product specifically, and that includes affiliates that are blacklisted by ClickBank directly.
NOTE - You will not be able to modify or remove affiliate entries that have been added by ClickBank.
NOTE - Affiliates that have been globally blacklisted by ClickBank will not appear in your Affiliate Blacklist Manager.
- Log in to your ClickBank account.
- Click the Vendor Settings tab.
- Click My Site.
- Scroll down to the Affiliate Blacklist Manager section.
Adding an Affiliate Entry
To blacklist an affiliate from promoting your products:
- Enter the nickname of the affiliate into the "Affiliate" field.
- Enter any comments regarding the reason why the affiliate is being blacklisted.
- Click "Add/Update".
NOTE - The comments that you enter are only visible to you and ClickBank.
Updating an Affiliate Entry
Once an affiliate has been added to the Affiliate Blacklist Manager, you will have the ability to update the entry.
You can do this either by entering the affiliate nickname again, typing new comments, and clicking "Add/Update" to overwrite the previous comments, or clicking "Edit" in the Actions column next to an existing entry.
NOTE - If the affiliate was blacklisted by ClickBank you will not have the option to Edit the entry.
Deleting an Affiliate Entry
Just as there are circumstances where you may wish to blacklist an affiliate, there can be circumstances where you may wish to allow a blacklisted an affiliate to again promote your offer. To remove an affiliate entry from the Affiliate Blacklist Manager:
- Locate the entry that you wish to remove.
- Click "Delete" in the Actions column.
NOTE - If the affiliate was blacklisted by ClickBank you will not have the option to Delete the entry.
If you are looking for specific entries, you can use the search function of Blacklist Manager. You can search by:
- Affiliate Nickname
- And/or Comments
Both are not required to complete a search.
