Pays ClickBank money

Clickbank: what is it and who is it worth?

Clickbank is the world's largest provider of digital products. It is a marketplace where sellers can list their products and have access to tens of thousands of affiliates. Clickbank has existed for over 15 years and has paid on time to this day. Those who sell digital products sell through Clickbank.

Clickbank isn't the only reliable provider you can sell your products through. However, other alternatives will only be presented later. Clickbank is the largest provider and is becoming increasingly popular.

It is a good idea to look into Clickbank if you want to offer and sell digital products such as e-books, audios or videos, as well as software for download, because Clickbank has some advantages that should not be underestimated.

Why use Clickbank?

Clickbank is great. It has an extensive, worldwide network of sales partners who can market all products very quickly. If you register as an affiliate with Clickbank for free, you choose a partner ID. A typical hop link looks like this:

http://25255.reseller.hop.clickbank.net

Hop links are special Clickbank links. This is the breakdown of the link above:

http://AFFILIATE-ID.PRODUKTNAME.hop.clickbank.net

The affiliate in this case is 25255, the product name is reseller here and the rest is always the same. The nice thing about Clickbank: Once registered, you can market any product without further checking the merchant, simply by putting your affiliate ID at the beginning of the link. The exemplary link

By the way, leads to the Clickbank homepage, to the retailer's website. One click on ‘Home’ and you have the normal overview.

Why is Clickbank interesting, what am I supposed to care about as a German?

For two reasons: There are thousands of good products on Clickbank that you can market. No matter whether in English-speaking countries or English material also for Germans.

But what is much more interesting: Clickbank has also opened up specifically to the German market and offers the option “search for products in German” in its marketplace search. And there are very few products. So a huge opportunity for all German product providers to quickly secure a supremacy in Clickbank.

Because when I'm looking for a German product and can't find anything ... nobody makes a deal. If I find a product and I like it to some extent, the chances are high that I will market it as a German.

If, on the other hand, the product is good to very good, I have the opportunity to make a name for myself in the German scene and immediately earn some money through product sales. To be fair, it has to be said that not very many are looking for German products yet, but that comes with time and speed is the trump card.

Disadvantages of Clickbank

Let's talk about a disadvantage with Clickbank that currently still prevails: Clickbank pays by check. Yeah, that's shit. I hope that you will soon also pay out via PayPal, then the whole thing will be even more interesting for us in Europe. But that's the biggest disadvantage for affiliates.

One point that retailers (vendors) must pay attention to will be discussed in detail in a later article. Nothing that is burning now and should prevent anyone from registering as a dealer or partner on Clickbank.

What also makes Clickbank attractive:

Clickbank accepts payments by PayPal or credit card, you don't need a credit card processor or other software to accept this form of payment.

Clickbank is therefore not simply a platform where many different partner programs are presented and you have to register with each one of them: Clickbank is a platform that checks the merchants and products from the outset and automatically takes care of the purchase process and payments to the partners.

That means a significant simplification for dealers and also for smaller partner programs to tap into a large group of sellers in a simple, tried and tested way.

Clickbank makes paying and marketing easy: They don't host the products for you, but they take care of many of the otherwise time-consuming and annoying things that you have to take care of yourself when you run your own affiliate program.

Clickbank is definitely a recommendation for all internet marketers, regardless of their country, and will play a role in Germany as well as in my articles in the future. Registration takes only 2 minutes, is easy and free. However, you should be able to speak the English language.

The best thing to do is to register with Clickbank as a partner and surf around the marketplace out of interest. In later articles I will show how you can quickly find the hottest products on Clickbank and, depending on your objectives, sell other competitors from Google and stand at the top yourself in order to collect good commissions. So, go into the digital worlds and start getting active. Have fun surfing and exploring Clickbank!
