    The Branded ClickBank iFrames are Gone and Won't Be Back

    This means that your Pitch Page will NOT be redirected to a shop.clickbank.net domain. It will remain under your own URL no matter where the traffic originates.

    However, We Must Retain ClickBank Branding on Some Pages

    At the directive of our card brand partners, we must show customers the ClickBank logo on any page that has a pay link. We're now dedicated to doing this in a way that is acceptable to you. We hosted initial design discussions with several key vendors and affiliates this week and all indications are that we're on the right track. We expect beta versions to be ready around the 27th of October. We will be clearly communicating these changes with you prior to implementation.

    The Marketplace Link is Also Gone

    As a direct result of your feedback we will not create links where we can't support attribution for vendors and affiliates. We have no current plans to revisit this item.

    And There's More We Need to Do

    There are still more changes we must make, and we'll need your help and input along the way:

    1. New End-Customer Focused Website: From our website customers must understand who ClickBank is and what type of products we sell. We've changed our website accordingly, now featuring products on our platform.
    2. Content Delivery: We need to support content delivery to customers, when possible. This should have an added benefit of taking the technical support burden off of vendors for products, like e-books, where the consumer may not understand how to download the product or if resending download links is necessary.
    3. Customer Account Support: Repeat customers will be able to create an account to store their purchase history and payment information. This comes with an added benefit of faster checkout for repeat customers and serves an ongoing request from vendors.

    Now I got this email. This Is not the full email, I just posted the this part.

    The reaction (perhaps overreaction) was warranted. It remains to be seen how this will all play out, but this is at least a step in the right direction.

    You mean the mostly accurate comments and opinions from ppl that got results, and CB is now canceling a lot of the stupid things they announced? What if people weren't bitching/moaning/commenting? CB would still be doing it! And how was it rumors, they did announce that stuff. Don't be so combative.

    Fair point. I didn't mean that but it came off that way. I meant the rumours about how Clickbank were doing this because they wanted to.

    I didn't expect you to reply like that. I think I should dial back my tone also. Anyway, I do think CB's whole rebranding thing is the reason they are trying to do this stuff. I'm like a lot of people that don't believe the claims about the CC companies making them do it. I mean, even look at the current situation. They were trying to change the vendor's website addresses to a CB URL, and put a link to the CB marketplace at the top of the vendor's websites, and saying this was all part of what the CC companies were making them do. But now that everybody got pissed and threatened to leave, they said OK, we won't do those things... what happened to the CC companies making them? They basically admitted now that the CC companies were NOT making them do those things, so it was just them wanting to do it. They are acting in a self interested way. I suspected that from the start when they made the claims about the CC companies. That never made sense. Now they are still saying the CC companies are making them put the CB brand on the vendor's websites. It's not really believable. It seems to me they just aren't ready to let that part of their plan go, as easily as the other parts.
