One of the features offered to ClickBank vendors is the ability to create commission tiers—also known as tiered whitelists. By creating commission tiers, vendors can set unique commission rates for that specific tier. This feature can be used as a way to reward particularly productive affiliates.
If vendors choose to use this feature, they are in control of determining how many commission tiers they wish to use and the commission rate offered to each tier. While vendors can have several commission tiers, affiliates can only belong to one tier.
In addition to creating commission tiers, ClickBank vendors can create an exclusive whitelist to add affiliates to. If a vendor creates an exclusive whitelist, this means that only affiliates that have been added to the whitelist can promote the product.
If you are a ClickBank affiliate and a vendor adds you to a commission tier, you will receive an automated email notification at the email address you have provided to ClickBank. You will be notified in the same manner if you are removed from a commission tier.
To check if you are currently included in any vendor commission tiers, follow these steps:
Step 1: Log in to your account.

Step 2: Click the Vendor Settings tab.
Once you are directed to the sales account management page, click the Vendor Settings tab. Clicking this tab directs you to the My Site page.
Step 3: Locate the Managing Your Affiliates box.
Scroll down the page to locate the Managing Your Affiliates box.
Step 4: Click the Affiliate Commission Tier Information hyperlink.
In the Managing Your Affiliates box, locate the Affiliate Commission Tier Information link. Click this link. Clicking this link directs you to the Affiliate Commission Tiers page.
Step 5: Locate any commission tiers you may belong to.

ClickTip: If you have additional questions about any particular commission tiers you may belong to, please contact the vendor directly. The vendor is solely responsible for enabling the commission tiers or whitelist feature and controls the commission rate of the tier as well as which affiliates are added to it.
