    Clickbank is kidding me.

    Targeted traffic, good LP, 206 hops, 27 order form impressions = 0 sales,
    this is getting funny.

    Anybody in the same situation lately ?

    Yes, I have not had a sale with CB within last 3 months on any accounts. Just don't use them.

    well, I don't know what your usual stats are, but you're probably suspended. try making another account if you really really need this clickbank crap

    Hi,

    I have never seen ClickBank cheated, i have 4 accounts and i check them time to time by making my own sale.

    But for some reason i have realized that ClickBank's Order form set the visitor off.

    I don't trust Clickbank at all. I lost a bit of money because of them and their shaving / sales tracking problems.

    I was sending good targeted traffic to them via adwords and making a decent amount of sales... then all of a sudden the sales stopped. I continued to send traffic expecting the sales to pick up again... but nothing.

    To make things even worse, I've never been paid for the sales that I did make. Apparently I do not qualify to get paid because my customers have not paid via enough different payment methods... I think you need 5 payment methods to qualify [ie, paypal, visa, mastercard... blah blah blah]

    I have been wondering this myself. My numbers have went to zero in the last 6 weeks or so. I was making $30 -$80 a week now they show no sales. So I paused sending them any traffic for now.

    I think it's just a bad product or your so called targeted traffic aren't really interested in paying for the solution. Rule of thumb, 100 hops = 0 sales means the sales page is crap or the people are not really spending money on things. Pick some other product and move on. BTW the product you are promoting, what is its current gravity?

    No, I've done experiments with new accounts and Clickbank does ban accounts but they won't tell you about it. They keep the sales you make for their-self. New accounts I create have sales.. and banned accounts make 1/5 the sales if that. Sometimes with banned accounts I have no sales for weeks on end when I'm used to dozens of sales a day. And then new accounts work fine.

    Though you have to create your new accounts RIGHT or they will become linked to your banned account.

    Just something I learned.

    The product is around 150 gravity, but i'm too concerned about what others said about clickbank credibility that i think i'm gonna give up with them.

    Thank you, however rather than spending time and money with them anymore it seems that the only certain thing is to have your own product or service - you don't sell it you won't make money, you sell it you MAKE money.

    @thetraveller

    Please note that what your saying is really a nightmare to noobs like me im totaly feelin depressed now I thought ClickBank is gonna make me a fortune and I don't have the experience nor the money to make a product of my own nor do I think any other newbie for that matter, am I wrong?

    how about Commission-Junction are they like ClickBank? trust wise I mean? or can I trust them and try and send them traffic and see actual sales? and checks coming my way.

    Regards.

    I had over 2k in sales with them, they would not release my funds they said because it was only from 3 different people and they needed 5 different cards to be used. This was about 9 months of rebills and $ just kept adding up. Then they started deducting a dollar per period that my money was sitting there,hahaha. Cheap fucks.

    if you start trusting your networks, next you will start trusting the banks and who knows, maybe the government.
    please be realistic, wherever there is money there are frauds and scams, and if you consider on what forum you are reading this, ethics are most likely not your highest concern. just think of networks as high-end blackhatters that are cleaning their act and going legit. hope that helps.

    As the first reply: "It's a hard life." Everybody is struggling to take as much money just for themselves. It's about surviving which is the most powerful human instinct so be prepared to be fuked by others, that's why i've come to the conclusion that is better to have your own product or service and try to spread it to reserve your bread.

    As for what i have read on this forum the conclusion is that clickbank is not for beginners in IM, i'm somehow a beginner too anyway but i gave it a try.

    From what i've heard CJ is a serious company to make business with, i also have one account with them but i can't find good freebie offers on their list.. but there are also other CPA companies so there you have choices..

    Clear cookies and flash objects.

    Change your IP address.

    And then create your new CB account with ALL NEW information. New name, address, phone number, etc.

    Don't log back into any of your old CB accounts without clearing your cookies, flash objects and changing your IP address.

    When your ready to get paid, change the info back to your real name, address, bank account, etc. Once you do this though you will become linked to your banned account and will have to create a new CB account.

    This is what I call a stealth CB account. If anyone knows me from aspkin.com, you know what I'm talking about.

    Good luck,
