Today, we would like to share with you our opinion about one of the popular Affiliate Marketplace ClickBank.
Every day, we are bombarded with information on how to make money as an Affiliate. There are many videos on YouTube promoting one or another Affiliate Platform.
Most of the videos about ClickBank are overall positive ones. The platform interface is easy to use and you have many products to choose from to promote.
However, based on our experience with the so-called Global Leading Retailer a few important questions came up.
Let’s put simply the biggest concern – Can you trust this Company? The short answer is – No
If you decide to go with ClickBank, we strongly recommend before investing even a penny running Ads to check if the generated link from their system with your account on it, actually works.
How to do this is very simple. Find a really cheap product (1 to 3$) and generate your commission link. After this have a friend purchase the product through this link and check your account balance to see if you received any commission.
Guess what – there is a strong chance you won’t receive a dime. It is likely the generated link from their system won’t work. Is this intentional or not – is a question for authorities.
Either way, the outcome is the same – you don’t get paid.
It gets even worse when you contact their Customer Support. If you ask uncomfortable questions like – why the link your system generated is not working? Am I being stripped of a commission? Well, you can count several days before getting an unclear answer with some general information.
Let’s move to the fast option live chat. You click the button and one of ClickBank’s agents appears with lightning speed. Right there at that moment everything good/positive ends.
The agent won’t answer the question of why the generated link does not work and there is no money in your account when a friend of yours bought the product. What the agent will do is what a bad agent does – make it easier for him/her and send you to a FAQ page, with no information of the issue.
He or she will try to make fool of you either because they know they are wrong but they can’t admit it or just because they are incompetent.
In conclusion – we won’t say and use strong words (as scams) for ClickBank. We only advise you one thing – before investing any money using this Affiliate Marketplace first check if everything works fine, by asking someone you know to purchase something really cheap through your links.
