CB has new terms and conditions. Lots of interesting stuff in there.

This is just one of the things that caught my eye:

Promotional use of images or reproductions of Payment checks issued by ClickBank without the express, written consent of ClickBank is prohibited.

    Looks like they made a change regarding products on social marketing!

    New (#36): "Products about marketing through Craigslist or social networking sites that are contrary to the social networking site's terms of use."

    Old (J): "The sale of products about marketing through Craigslist or social networking sites like YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook."

    Good news!?!?!?

    How about:

    "Any other category ClickBank decides to prohibit."

      That's not new. That was there before.

      Neil,

      The way I read Dan's post.... using YouTube was expressly forbidden in the old terms and NOT specifically prohibited in the new terms.

      Guess, I'm going to have to go to CB and put it all in context.

      you couldn't sell products about marketing on youtube..

      it's cool that they've taken a more common sense approach to this and specified the TOS thing..

        Yes, but I bet it was more for their benefit than ours. Social marketing is big now, and if they don't allow products on it, they are going to lose out!

        Of course, I'm glad for it. I'm working on an eBook that covers social marketing; I was going to omit the section so I could sell it through Clickbank, but now it looks as though I don't have to do that!

    An interesting point, it seems we won't be able to provide proof of our clickbank paychecks to our potential affiliates via video then! Some creative solutions must be implemented then..Nice post!

    Some very interesting changes indeed, we just need to adapt to the new rules of the clickbank game.

      Did the old Clickbank product requirements disallow the sale of website templates? I don't see that in the new contract. Am I overlooking it, or is that no longer a prohibited product? Anyone know?

    Can anyone help me please?

    If clickbank doesn't approve your product, do they refund $50 vendor-signup fee?

    P.S. Sorry I didn't want to start a new thread for this tiny question :confused:

      You only send payment after approval

        well, the way I read it is that you can't show paychecks, not screen shots of sales. As my lawyer likes to tell me: it needs to be clearly stated within the 4 corners of the contract.

        I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt here, and assuming they are just trying to stop fraudulant advertising.. in which case, they should be willing to give vendors the OK if their CB income claims are legit.
