A payment link is the link that customers click that directs them to the ClickBank order form where they can purchase vendor products. ClickBank Vendors must manually create their own unique payment link and add it to their Pitch Page. Note: Before you can create a payment link, you must sign up for a ClickBank account, have an approved product, and have an approved Pitch Page.
Follow these instructions to create a payment link that you can add to your Pitch Page.
Step 1: Select the text of image on your Pitch Page that you wish to link to the ClickBank order form. Note: This image or text will be the thing that customers click on to proceed with purchasing your product.
Step 2: Build your payment link.
Here is the link that will be used to direct customers to the ClickBank Order Form:
- Replace “ITEM” with the specific product number of the product that is being purchased. Note: For more information on how to find your product number, check out this article.
- Replace “VENDOR” with your ClickBank account nickname.
Step 3: Add a tracking ID (TID) to your payment link. (Optional)
TIDs are compatible with ClickBank analytics and can provide helpful insights on where sales are coming from.To add a TID, add the variable “&vitd” to the end of your pay link. Here’s an example:
Then, replace “exampleID” with a unique TID that you determine. TIDs can contain up to 100 alphanumeric characters, including underscores. It must begin with an alphanumeric character and cannot contain consecutive underscores.
Step 4: Define the payment link.
Using the HTML version of the link, define either the text or image that users must click in order to be directed to the ClickBank order form.
<a href="https://VENDOR.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=ITEM" target="cb">
CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE</a>
Replace CLICK HERE with any text you prefer, or (using HTML) define an image as the hyperlinked item.
ClickTip: If you are not comfortable with HTML, you can have a developer help you with this step. There are also online tutorials that will show you how to link an image.
Step 5: Add query string parameters. (Optional)
You can pass query string parameters with your payment link. Query string parameters are additional chunks of information that are passed from your Pitch Page to the order form. For example, some string parameters are used to pre-populate fields on the order form and some are used for tracking purposes. Read and learn more about query string parameters.
Step 6: Proceed to test your payment link.
