    Hello BHW

    Hope all are doing well. Please be aware of the Clickbank Vendors Activity.

    I am promoting ClickBank Products for 2 years, I was making $$$ Per week, But from the Last 2 Month Its Fallen Down to $0. Now I found, why my sells down. Because the Vendor Offering the free gift by using Exit pop up, then they sending another affiliate links to the Visitors.

    Now I am using their "non exit popup" lander and getting sells.

    I got their free gift & subscribed, I see they are sending offer with other affiliate link. I also see, The Vendor doing Affiliates of Others Products. This is not Fair, All Affiliates are working hard to sending traffic throw their link, But vendor just putting a Email Capture Form & getting email & start Promoting Affiliate Products. This is totally cheating.

    So I think, we should take steps to stop this Cheating. We Should Protest the Cheating Vendor.

    Today I complained against vendor to ClickBank.

    Here is the Support Link: https://support.clickbank.com/anonymous_requests/new Please report against the cheating vendor, because we are working hard to sending traffic, and the vendor collecting emails easily by offering free gifts & then start sending own affiliate links. So we should protect this.

    I will Post Here the list of Vendors who are Cheating & Stealing Sells.

    Thanks


    Disclaimer: I am not talking about all the vendors are cheater. I am only requesting you to take step to stop Cheater.

    As I know you stated in your footer, not all vendors are cheaters, and most of us take pride in seeing our affiliates be as successful as possible. In fact, any vendor who desires longevity in this business will be wise enough to prioritize affiliate satisfaction over everything else; after all, affiliates such as yourself make or break us. As a clickbank vendor I am grateful to every affiliate who dedicates his time and money to promote my products and make it my mission to help them in making a profit.

    That being said, there are indeed some bad apples among us, and in fact I had written a post about it last year. In my post, one of the issues I highlighted is the one you mention (point 5 in my post):
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-types-of-clickbank-sites-that-you-should-not-promote.791905/

    I encourage you and others to name & shame cheating vendors. This will help your fellow affiliates and will help kill off vendor businesses that are making profit at the expense of cheating their loyal affiliates.

    I also caught some of the vendors was doing the given below trick and reported to Clickbank and they just kicked out them from their network.

    I was generating sales and suddenly the sales dropped out. I didn't notice it for at least a month then I just started about looking traffic stats and everything seems normal to me.
    But when I just go through my affiliate link, I just noticed the vendors replaced the buy now link with another payment processors like JVzoo etc..

    I was like WTH? I didn't email the cheaters, but directly to the Clickbank support team. Because even if they'd reinstate the CB links after getting caught red handed, they'll try to trick affiliates with another tactic after sometime.

    In my opinion, ClickBank should stop vendors to Promote Affiliate Products. Many Vendors Also Doing Affiliates.

    Also vendors are sending Related Offers to the Subscribers... So they are making money all the way, but they are doing nothing but cutting Affiliates Traffics.

    Just think, We Affiliates are working hard day & night to send traffic throw our link. But the vendor just Putting a Popup & Collecting Leads. Then They are Sending Offer with their Affiliate Links. Not only that, After Selling their Products they are start sending Related Products Offer. They are doing Nothing just setting back but they are getting all from our traffics.

    If vendor can't promote any products, I am pretty sure Affiliates will get more sells. Again I say, when you send traffic to the Sells Page, Vendors are Offering Gifts & Collecting Emails then they start sending Offers for the Related Products. So they are making a Funnel with your Traffics & Making Money But You are getting One Sells OR Not.
    But Vendors are Getting All by You.

    We all affiliate should complain this & Request CB to Stop Vendor for promoting others/related Products. Affiliates are the main sources of ClickBank Sells, So We should get Our Right. If we stop sending traffic for 1 days, CB Sells must be Down.

    Lets Do It.

    CB can ban Fraud Vendors.
    Yes, They can get any Offers from Marketplace.

    We dont want vendor get banned. But they should not Promote Affiliate Offers. ClickBank should take steps to stop this type of Activity.

    In my opinion, all affiliates should request ClickBnak to Change their system & policy that Vendors cant Promote Affiliate Offers.

    It's up to you to choose to promote a product or not. Take a look at their sales funnel and if there is traffic leaks then don't promote them. Split testing a few similar products the funnel with tons of leaks who's trying to cheat you will always lose to a cleaner, better optimized funnel.

    Exit pop saves which don't credit you for a sale, aggressive email grabs where autoresponders push non-cookied links, and calls to action to call a phone number are major offenders and I'll never work with anyone doing that because it shows up in the numbers.

    I am confused.. i am promoting a product..the moment sales page loaded, a popup comes from nowhere and tell we are offering 100$ worth of videos for free, please signup to get that..

    I entered my email and then i received an email by pointing to some video page..in that video page there is another link for actual sales page.If i click and reach the sales page, my cookies are gone..affiliate=none

    is that cheating?

    That is actually just ridiculous and will never happen. It is part of the business - you are getting a huge commission cut, but in-exchange you are sending your lead to someone else. They're fully entitled to remarket to them if they so choose.

    Be careful who you promote. If you don't want your leads watered down by being subscribed to aggressive email lists, then don't promote those offers.
