Strange Happenings At Clickbank

If you’re into affiliate marketing then odds are you know all about Clickbank.  If you’ve never heard of CB you should know that they’re probably the largest online retailer of digital products and they have thousands of products to promote.  Its where most newbies start their affiliate marketing journey.

Unfortunately there have been some rumblings in the past few weeks about orders not being processed correctly.  More specifically, vendors and affiliates alike are afraid that they’re not getting paid for their sales.  Conversion rates for some products have tumbled and while some may shrug it off as a fluke a lot of people are concerned.  After all, if you’re spending money on a PPC campaign your profit margin may be pretty small.  Losing a few sales could mean the difference between a tidy profit and a huge loss.

Personally, I did notice a very quiet two weeks from my affiliate sites, but this past week has been back to normal.  Is there a technical glitch in Clickbank’s system?  Or is there something more sinister going on?

    I’ve heard from day one the CB had all kinds of issues. I personally use paydotcom as well as other networks.

    Dennis, I agree Clickbank’s system is far from perfect but I’ve had huge success promoting some of their products.

    There had really been some issues regarding Clickbank. Hope that it will be minimized or be completely fixed to provide its affiliates a better earning opportunity.
