Can you put a "buy now" button inside an ebook?

    Will clickbank allow this? Basically i'm offering some sample chapters for my ebook. The idea is that at the end of the ebook i would put a buy now button so that when the reader clicks on it they are taken straight to the clickbank order form.

    I know i could re-direct them to a sales letter on my website but i want to minimize the number of steps involved. Do clickbank allow traffic straight from an ebook to their order form or does it break their TOS in some way do you think?

    Thanks.

    Are you using click bank as a vendor or you mean just putting an affiliate link in your ebook and sending book readers to some one else's product in CB ?

    I mean is that ebook is the product you want to sell ? or is it the just your promotion tool to other CB product ?

    This is what exactly you want to get going.

    It's my own ebook (written myself) going to my own clickbank account. Do you think clickbank would mind?

    Okay now it is clear, I think CB dont care it as long as you are not redirecting your visitors to buy it with bypassing CB (I mean through an external payment gateway) .

    I believe traffic they dont care , they just look net sales (and CC frauds).They are not like CPA networks..But still didnt try this thing , this is just my belief..Good luck.

    I'm sure you can embed a link in the pdf, not sure if it's allowed though
