Greetings! So far I am not finding my clickbank affiliate link question in past posts. I got no response or a wrong answer to my question from other sources. I really want to get going, need money badly and was wondering if you could help. Thanks in advance.


I signed up to be an affiliate of a product that is a clickbank product and got the link. I was already a clickbank affiliate and gave them my account nickname or ID. How do I know that the link really works and that someone could actually buy the clickbank product with it, and I get the commission. I don't want to buy the product myself to find out.


Secondly, I also received the affiliate link for others to sell the product that I get a commission from as well. I cannot open the affiliate link I got even though it is correct my nickname .1clicksite.hop.clickbank.net

Why not? What's needed to make sure that affiliate link works so someone can actually become an affiliate of the products through me and that I also get a commission for.

Thanks, Randy

    If you click on your link and go past the sales page to the shopping cart, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you should see the words;

    affiliate=Your Clickbank ID

    And I have no idea why the other link won't open.

    This is very simple to know that the reason how do u know the sale is made under you, as Eric Graudins said If you click on your link and go past the sales page to the shopping cart, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you should see the words; affiliate=Your Clickbank ID or as soon as you or the customer clicked the link, it will end with your nicke name that looks after the url hop=yournickname

    Your second questions - Normally clickbank enables the cookies for 60 days, once a potential customer clicks your affiliate link, a cookie will be stored his computer, if he was not willing to purchase that time, but if he search something related in google, the cookie will be enabled and display the result, ultimately he will purchase, this should happened with in 60 days, after this will be expaired.

    why others won't open for you? click bank has changed its affiliate link generation method, previously that will look http: //yournickname.vendor.hop.clickbank.net
    so every advertiser who is having product at clickbank, they will use the above link saying that replace "yournickname" in the place provided. And vendor already replaced his name in the "vendor" place.

    This setup is not working properly after the changes have been made by clickbank, because after the affiliate link is created, it will be starting with some numbers, and someother words.

    So you would be opened that kind of link, that is why it doesn't open for you. I think I gave my level best answer.

      Harvey, Eric, Netbank,

      Thank you for the tips, direction, where to find the sale. It turns out that the affiliate link that was sent to me was correct as you, Harvey showed me. That led me to look closely at the affiliate link that was sent me. For some reason it had a blank spaces in between two of the letters so of course it wouldn't open. When I closed the space, it worked fine. Wow!

      Randy
