    I usually go into detail but I'm going to short this one.

    There's a few products I'd like to promote (gaming).
    These products have websites with affiliate pages that have you create CB links and I know they used to be in the CB Marketplace.
    They are no longer in the Marketplace but if I create the hoplink manually and test it, the hops do show in my analytics.

    So ... it appears the hoplinks work but since the product is not listed in the Marketplace, I'm weary about promoting them.

    Does anyone have experience with this?
    Will I get credited sales?

    I've been searching and not coming to a conclusion.

    I would contact the vendor and see if they are still using clickbank for their processing.

    They may have left the CB tracking script on their site, so thats why it is showing in analytics, but they might not processing cards through clickbank...

    Thanks for the reply.
    They are still using CB checkout pages/processing on their site.
    I checked the checkout pages/urls to be sure.

    ADDED:

    Basically, it looks clear it's still ran through CB.
    I've just never been a vendor so I'm not sure if once it's no longer in the marketplace, if we get commission.
    All signs point to yes.
    I only email out so often as to not upset my list however and one mistake in my email marketing == eating hotdogs only for a week. Nobody wants that :D

    Products that have not made a single sale for a long time (60 days if I'm not mistaken) are taken off the marketplace, yet the links etc... will still work fine.

    However, I would question your decision to promote products that are not generating any sales for anyone?

    That's not a decision I have made yet.
    I wasn't aware that's why they get removed and that is exactly the information I was looking for.
    Thanks.

    Don't waste your time with products that are not on the marketplace. I promote only products on the top 10 page of popularity on Clickbank.
