Creating coupon codes for your products is a sales tactic that can help you increase conversions and customer retention; drive traffic to your product(s); and convince hesitant customers to buy. ClickBank offers a coupon feature to vendors that allows you to provide your customers with a percentage discount on a specific product or all of your products in your ClickBank Vendor account.
To get started creating coupons, follow these steps:
How to Create Coupons for ClickBank Products
Step 1: Log in to your ClickBank Vendor account.
Log in to your account using your login credentials.
ClickTip: If you created a ClickBank Account on or after 10/29/19, you CANNOT use your Account Nickname to login to that account. Account Nicknames are no longer affiliated with a unique password. Instead, you MUST use your email address as your login credential.
Step 2: Locate and click the “Vendor Settings” tab.
On horizontal navigational bar at the top of your screen, click the “Vendor Settings” tab. Clicking this reveals an additional horizontal navigation bar.
Step 3: Locate and click the “My Coupons” tab.
Once the additional horizontal navigation bar is revealed, locate and click the “My Coupons” tab.
ClickTip: The “My Coupons” tab and feature will not be enabled in your ClickBank Vendor account until you have an approved product in your account. Once a product has been approved, you can enable the coupon feature through the “My Features” tab located on the “Vendor Settings” tab.

Step 4: Click the “Create Coupon” button.
Once you arrive at the “Coupons” page, click the “Create Coupon” button. Clicking this button directs you to the “Coupon Management” page.
Step 5: Create a Coupon Code.
The first field on the “Coupon Management” page is the “Code” field. This is where you enter your coupon code. The coupon code is not case sensitive and can contain between 5 and 20 characters.
ClickTip: In addition to creating your own code, you can use the “Generate Coupon Code” to generate a unique coupon code.
Step 6: Select the products you want the coupon to apply to.
You can decide to apply the coupon to all, one, or a specific selection of your products. To select all of your products, click the “Select All Products” button. To select one or some of your product, click on them in the product list.
ClickTip: To select more than one product from the list, hold down the control (CTRL) button (or the “Command” Key, for Mac users) and click the products you’d like to apply to coupon to.
Step 7: Decide if you want to apply the coupon to the entire order or to the highest price item in the customer’s cart.
Below the product list is an option to select between applying the discount to all items in the cart and only the highest priced item. To apply the discount to the entire cart, select the “cart” radial button. To select to only apply to discount to the highest price item, select the “highest price” radial button.
Step 8: Decide if you want to exclude shipping and handling costs from the discount.
You can select to have the coupon discount apply to the subtotal of the order or item before shipping and handling, or if you’d like to apply the discount to the order or item total, including shipping and handling costs. To select the exclude shipping and handling, check the box next to the “Exclude Shipping and Handling” text.
ClickTip: The discount is applied before tax is calculated and added to the order total.
Step 9: Select the discount value of the coupon.
You can select a discount value between 1-80%. Enter the discount value into the field to the right of the “Value” text.
Step 10: Check the “Active” box and click the “Save” button to activate your coupon.
Once you check the “Active” box and click “Save,” your coupon will be active.
ClickTip: Once your coupon is active, you can edit, deactivate, or delete it by accessing the specific coupon from the “Coupons” page. To find out more about coupon display options, take a look at this article.
