ClickBank Vs. Ejunkie?

I am about to launch my first product and have decided to use either Ejunkie or clickbank to sell it. I like clickbank, it seems to have more features than Ejunkie has, and is also much more well known. However, it's a bit more expensive, and I really don't want to sink a ton of money into my first product launch. Obviously I want to make money, but it's all a trial and error learning experience at this point.

The main benefit I see with clickbank is having affilate promote my product. However, I plan to sell it for only $20 and even at 75% commision there are much more profitable products to promote. My product is unique in the fact there are no other clickbank items like it, but I still can't see any large number of affilates promoting my product.

Also, I plan to have the download sent as an email, and then ping my aweber to send them another one asking if they want to sign up for additional content related to their purchase and any updates I put out. I know I can do this with clickbank, but I'm not entirely sure about Ejunkie. If not, the extra cost to use clickbank is more than worth an easy route to building a list.

Any thoughts on either of these services and whats best? Has anyone had any expereince with them willing to share some insight?

    Ejunkie is totally different from CB. Ejunkie is just a shopping cart while CB is like a big directory of digital products..

    You can't use e-Junkie to sell it, Pete. e-Junkie is only a shopping cart and product delivery system. It doesn't handle the money.

    You can use e-Junkie and ClickBank together. e-Junkie is set up that way: you can use their product delivery system and sell through ClickBank, PayPal, Google Checkout, Authorize.Net, TrialPay or 2CheckOut. But not e-Junkie on its own.

    • Always ask - how big is the network ?
      Clickbank has big network of affiliates who sell your product for you.
      You pay them after they sell your product , you don`t pay for for advertising , using their lists , just comission.
      I would definitely go for clickbank.

    Okay I was a little confused. I was planning to use Paypal to process the Payments and then after payment is confirmed have E-junkie delivery them the product via e-mail?

    Now, If I was jsut to use clickbank, do they have a way to deliver the prodcut, or would I have to use in in conjunction with E-junkie or another product delivery service?

      Yes, you can do that. But that's using PayPal to sell, not e-Junkie.

      Much better (for many reasons) to send a download link to the product by email, rather than the product itself, though.

      They do.

      No, you don't have to do that. And few vendors do.

      But there are actually some potential advantages to doing that. One of the main ones is that you can, if you wish, use e-Junkie's PDF-stamping thing, which is very clever: it stamps the purchaser's transaction details on each page of the PDF before they download it, to deter people from uploading the product to file-sharing/torrent sites. I'd find it very attractive, myself.

      But you can use "just ClickBank" without e-Junkie.

      Note that ClickBank's a bit expensive, though, if you don't want/expect affiliates: they take 7.5% + $1 per sale, which is pretty high for transaction charges.

        I've researched this myself. I've contacted E-Junkie and Clickbank on this issue. I'm beginning to think the best way to set everything up is through processing with Clickbank and delivering through E-Junkie. The only thing I'm not 100% sure of is if you are able to build a list with E-Junkie. For example, I believe once the consumer has mad a purchase they are then redirected to a download or thank you page on the "Ejunkie" server. I'm not sure the amount of customization that can occur here. I need to fully investigate this before opening mouth and inserting foot :-D I will follow up though with my findings.

          I'm not a vendor, but that's certainly what I think, overall.

          This is second-hand information only but I believe (from others) that you are. And actually I can't believe e-Junkie would have so many clients if you weren't? :confused:

            E-junkie does have a list. You can sort and send by product, or select all products and send that way as well.

            However, I have been using e-junkie for many years now to sell both digital and physical items and not once have I used the list. I have been a proud aweber user the whole time I have been in IM (first thing I signed up for).

            The advantage of using the email list tool in ejunkie is that everyone who has ever bought from you is automatically entered in...so you can email anyone and everyone...disadvantage is that they did not double opt-in so you may piss someone off. (each email DOES have an unsubscribe link in it though)

            I cannot speak for Clickbank because I have never used it to sell, just as an affiliate. They do have a very vast network and your product stands a decent chance of getting seen....but there are tons to choose from so it could get overlooked.

            Ejunkie allows you to have affiliates and you control the payout (more work on your part) but you do have full control.

            Nothing says you can't use both and test and see.

    I would roll with Clickbank. It's not really expensive. Just $50.

      You can use E-Junkie as an affiliate platform. I do and they do have a marketplace, it is not as big as Clickbank or as popular for looking for good products to promote. But I have sold products from there as an affiliate and as a vendor.

      I invite affiliates, so its not like people are going there looking for my products. Like anything else it has a learning curve, but it's pretty well done, and the tech support people have always been great to me.

      I don't have E-Junkie deliver because it is a membership site, instead I code the redirect page into my PayPal button where my customers sign up for their membership, they don't have one click upsell, but I am not using that anyway.

      Big Mike's Digibilly platform will do one click upsells and OTO's, I've not used it, but I know it can be done there.

      I agree. The $50 dollar vendor fee really isn't that much of an investment, especially considering the huge return you may experience assuming you have a great product with a compelling sales page. Here on WF, to release a WSO you need to have a War Room Membership ($37), pay $40 to put up your product in the WSO section with an additional $40 to "bump" your product, and depending on what platform you use, $19 to implement your product with Warrior Pro.

      As with any business, it's important to realize that financial investments is vital in order to achieve money in the future.

  • How much is your product? Is it between $5 - $25 ? If so then hheck out trialpay.com you can have an affiliate program, and really stand out from the competition offering your product for free and still getting paid. Plus it works with ejunkie, so you can give buyers an option to buy your product or get it free. That's a thinker! lol.
