downloadable trial products

7 replies
If someone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it. It concerns trial products @ clickbank

I am promoting some software cleaners from clickbank.
If someone downloads a trial for example a spyware cleaner from my site, they then decide to register it should it not have my affiliate info so I can get the credit for it.
I just so happened to download and test some of the products on my page, went to register them through the program which brings me to the clickbank page and my affiliate id is nowhere to be seen on the bottom of the page...says affiliate=none
whats that all about? should it not say affiliate = myid
so I tested the others as well and all are the same. I know my affiliate id is there cause I download it using my link.

Now I am wondering how many people downloaded from my page and then decided to register the product and I got no sale from it.

Anyone have any answers for this?
Thanks

    I do not use clickbank a lot so cannot comment on that, but if your affiliate id is nowhere to be seen then you will probably not get credit for it.

    Why not use regnow or plimus. There are plenty of software available for promotion and the payouts are good and so are most of the products. With regnow when a trial is converted to a full version you get paid for it.

      right now most of the products I promote are clickbank based.
      I just did a few downloads from other peoples websites as well with similar products, I download them using their affiliate id which is clearly seen, I install the program then go through the buy or register button on the software which will bring me to the vendors page and on through clickbank...still same thing..no affiliate link on the bottom of page.
      So what does that tell me...that no one is getting a credit for these type of products?
      Unless there is something I dont know about what is the use of that.

    I would have thought that in order for the cookie to be set they would need to download it from the vendor's site, not your site.

      There is a hoplink associated with the downloads and you can have it download right from your site.

        Can you provide an example link?

    Get in touch with Clickbank if you have any problems. They're normally quite good at sorting these problems out. I stopped selling these types of products when I found out commission was being lost even though the hop views were really high. Too much work for too little money. You're better off getting your own one made and promoting it yourself.
