Clickbanks APPROVAL Process is allways Sooo Dragged out!

7 replies
Hey i'm a Fairly experienced Vendor on clickbank...

One thing that really grinds my gears is the APPROVAL Process on Products and upsell Flows!!

I have thought this even when I was a nOOb on Clickbank!

it's like they encourage you to use things like the PitchPlus and Cross Selling but it takes so long to get Approved that some of the excitement of doing it goes right out the window!

I have been trying to get two upsell flows approved now for like 2 weeks and they keep coming back with dead petty things...

I also find Certain "Product Specialists" are better than others and will push things through the system faster...where as others seem like they are still on Dial up!

Sorry to Rant! I do Love clickbank! but aspects of this process could definitely be improved!

Rant Over!

anyone else feel this way....let off some steam here....lol

    If you're fairly experienced, does that mean you have made in total more than 150k? If so, you can have your own account manager.

    Otherwise, you just get used getting past their questions after a few validations - and if you are creating a new product within the same account, click on "duplicate product" instead of creating a new one. You probably knew that anyway though.

      It would seem to me you would have the best chance of addressing this issue and getting the problem resolved by taking it up directly with Clickbank admin. Have you tried to make suggestions to them?

    Talk to them. I've recently asked a question about a product I wanted to promote (it was removed) and they're more than helpful. It might take a while, but they'll get back to you.

    All I can recommend is looking at their vendor guidelines very carefully and using a lot of common sense when creating your pitch pages. If anything sounds too hypey or you are using false scarcity, etc then they will not be approved.

    A lot of time can be shaved off the approval process by getting things right the first time. I learnt that after submitting many products.

    It does take them a little longer now than it has in the past, but I think that's because they're filtering out a lot more of the crap now than they did before. If you've put through enough products, then you'll know that they have a set criteria for every product approval. There are things you have to add and take away form your sales pages, and it's the same criteria most of the time, so after you've put through a few products, you know what to add and not to add to get your product approved quickly.
