Taking people straight to the payment page and bypassing the ad. Is it possible?

    Most of these ads look real trashy. It sucks because the product or service is probably great, but people are put off with the aesthetics of the presentation.

    I was wondering if I could just take them straight to the payment page but with my affiliate link still intact. Has anyone else done this? I'd much rather sell the product to them myself.

    Do you mean the landing page? If so, then some vendors provide a direct link to the payment page on their affiliate page (located at the bottom of their landing page). You can then use this direct link on your own landing page in order to give a quality presentation in lieu of using the default vendor presentation.

    I see. So if I copy the link address of the payment page, I will still get credit for any sales made?

    No, then you're just sending them to the order page and not getting credit.

    You have to make sure you're passing along the cookie. Its been a long time since I did CB but I believe there is a slightly different link you can use that retains your affiliate link and leads right to checkout. I believe, not 100% on this so Google it, it is:
    Code:
    http://[B]item[/B].[B]affiliate[/B]_[B]vendor[/B].pay.clickbank.net
    With the three things that you need to change for each product. Obviously the item is the item, since some vendors sell more than one, the affiliate is you and the vendor is them. CB still displays the affiliate at the very bottom of the page for most things so you should be able to see if your cookie is active when viewing the order form to test it. It may have changed since back in the day but this is how it used to be and like I said try and test it. If this confuses you just ask the vendor, they all know how to do it as its a really common technique people use and they will probably fill in the details and give you a link that's ready to go if they aren't super busy.

    No, it was like another link similar to the one wowhaxor posted, not the URL of the payment page in the address bar. I posted an example below (don't use those exact URLs as they're for a specific Clickbank product) of an affiliate page for a Clickbank product, but it usually tells you to replace an "xxxxxx" or a "yourcbid" with your Clickbank ID in order for you to receive credit for the sale.

    I have seen many people who redirect their visitors to the landing page for payment process.

    Yeah it's seemingly quite necessary once you scroll through some of these ads. It's like these designers are stuck in the past thinking that this particular internet ad format is the best way to maximize sales for your product or service.

    Or maybe I'm just dead wrong and people are somehow subconsciously into that kind of presentation. Don't see it though.

    Believe it or not, some people speculate that there is some logic behind those abysmal Clickbank landing pages, but mickyfu sums it up in this post:
    Some Clickbank products also target older people who, as you may already know, are not always the most computer literate people or they don't like fancy flashy CSS3 designs. One of my web development clients falls in the latter group and is put off by websites that employ these designs as he finds them superfluous. In this case, it makes sense to keep things simple on the landing page and make it look like it's straight out of 2002.

    Anyway, here's a thread you can read about why Clickbank vendors use terrible landing pages.
