Be Careful About Using Whitelist Feature on ClickBank
I just mistakenly went Honey Badger on another marketer because of the whitelist feature so I want to warn you about something.
Background - the whitelist feature lets you, as a vendor, approve who gets to promote your product. It's a certain amount of exclusivity. Or, you can make it open to all affiliates.
Anyway, I had been contacted by another marketer awhile back to do a review of his product, which I did by implementing it and covering it in dozens of blog posts, sharing my results.
So I'm making affiliate commission on the sales of it.
Today, months later, I get an email from ClickBank that says verbatim:
*This email is to inform you that your account 'affiliatenameremoved' has been removed from the Affiliate Whitelist of the ClickBank vendor 'vendornameremoved'.
Now that you have been removed from this vendor's Affiliate Whitelist, you are no longer
eligible to earn commissions by promoting their product(s).*
So I was PISSED off about this!
Well I went off, of course. Then a ClickBank employee sees a post by me about it and lets me know the vendor just disabled the whitelist feature completely - so my affiliate link IS indeed working. He simply opened it up to all affiliates.
Well this is screwed up. The wording specifies that I was removed and that I am NO LONGER ELIGIBLE for commission! Apparently that's not true!
So my advice is to notify your whitelist partners BEFORE you disable the feature if you decide to open it to everyone - because I went through my whole site and removed my links to him and now I have to put them back.
