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.”
ClickTip: Before proceeding with these instructions, make sure you have signed up for a ClickBank Vendor account and that you have a functioning Pitch Page.
Follow these instructions to create a payment link, and then add it to your Pitch Page:
Step 1: Select the text or image on your pitch page that you wish to link to the ClickBank order form.
You must select a specific image or section of text for customers to click on in order to be directed to the ClickBank Order form.
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: Customize the link in order to route customers from your Pitch Page to the ClickBank order form.
Here is the link that will be used to direct customers to the ClickBank Order Form:
Replace “ITEM” with the specific item number of the product that is being purchased.
Replace “VENDOR” with your ClickBank account nickname.
ClickTip: The item number is the unique number you created when you added your product to your account. For instructions on how to find the item number of your product, CLICK HERE.
Step 3: Add a tracking ID to your link. (Optional)
If you want, you can also add a vendor tracking ID (TID) to your payment link. 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 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 and 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.
ClickTip: 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.
Step 4: Proceed to testing your Payment Link.
