Clickbank Overview

ClickBank is an online retailer well-known for its vast affiliate marketing network.  Vendors (aka ‘product owners’) are able to drive online sales by showcasing their products on the Clickbank marketplace, and affiliates (aka ‘performance marketers’) are able to select products from the marketplace to run, making money from each sale they can drive.

The platform is arguably the most famous affiliate network that exists, and is synonymous with the world of “internet marketing”.

The network is less centralized than many of its competitors like Clickbooth or MaxBounty, in that there are no affiliate managers for the vast majority of affiliates, and any affiliate can promote any offer that is available platform-wide.

In addition, affiliates and vendors can work together, creating special payout rates and other forms of customization.

As per Clickbank, affiliates on the platform benefit from the following advantages:

-Commissions as high as 90%

-Timely payments 

-Credit for every sale

-Promote automatic upsell offers

According to their website,

Tens of thousands of affiliates choose ClickBank to promote top-performing products and to get paid on time, every time.
